Summary: I had a older model but it fell a broke. This model has more detailed directions and more features.This is a great value for a GPS. It's not big but that's OK you can put in your pocket and take it with you anywhere. It's hard to understand the voice with some of the street names.
Summary: I already had a Tom-Tom which I was pretty happy with, but I bought the Nextar on a whim because it was featured on one of those deal-of-the-day sites. I paid $39.95. I am now using the Nextar and have retired the more expensive Tom-Tom. The Tom-Tom has some advantages, including a choice of voices, which is good for me because I have a hearing deficit. But the sole voice on the Nextar (female) is okay. Not as clear as Tom-Tom's male voice, but still adequate.
Summary: I actually didn't have much choice in the matter when using this GPS. My mother had purchased this a year before even opening it from some QVC sale. I'm glad she got it, since it's a decent enough GPS for the price. My experiences using the device have all be positive.

Summary: Bought one of these at Kohl's last week for $88. I was skeptical because I haven't researched these and thought the way to go was a Tom-Tom or Garmin. My wife had it in her cart and when I saw it had text to speech written on the box I thought we'd try it. After testing it for a week and reading about features on more expensive units, this one holds up very well. Works perfectly so far! I'm giving it 5 stars to counter the low rating of the previous reviewer.
Summary: This little item offers map updating every 25 feet. It has a good response time if you drive within reasonable speed limits....lead footed speeders will find it to be a bit sluggish if they are driving over 80 m.p.h.. Make sure you download the ActiveSync program from the Microsoft Mobile website... this unit runs on Windows CE and you can do upgrades on it...or even hack it if you so desire..
