"Barely Functional."

fluttervale, CNET
26 February 2011
  • Pros: For the most part, it got me where I wanted to go.
  • Cons: Outdated maps. Outdated speed limits. Randomly turned the voice off. Got stuck in a loop. Did not find "nearest" points-of-interest readily.

too expensive to maintain

Frank Terry "Baby Boomer", Amazon
16 January 2010
  • Summary: This is easy to use, and is fine for the first year. Then the cost of upgrading the maps exceeds the cost of the unti. Buy one of the more expensive uints with free map upgrades, it'll be cheaper in the long run.

Needs more POI's

Karen E. Koch "ditzychick", Amazon
26 December 2008
  • Summary: This unit is ok but it's lack of built in POIs makes it not as usable as others. This brand of GPS cannot download POIs from usual internet sources like Tom Tom and Garmin can, so you are stuck with just what is already loaded, which isn't much. I was in the central valley of California looking for a Wal-Mart and the nearest one it showed me was in San Diego.

"maps outdated not enough points of interest"

nagel588, CNET
2 December 2008
  • Pros: Screen size, ease of use
  • Cons: Outdated maps. Don't really care for the text recognition, only allows you to put in certain characters and if you don't know the exact street - you are stuck!
