Don't bother - buy a brand name device remanufactured instead

Summary: I bought this as a back-up since our trusty Garmin 2720 acted up on a short journey, and we were going on a 4500 mile road journey to Yellowstone, Grant Tetons and back soon. So it was never intended as a "main" GPS device, but only a back-up.
Summary: I bought this to replace my old Nextar, since it's maps were out of date and there was no way to update them. The new one is thinner, easier to read, has better spoken instructions, and has some very nice features.
Summary: I had a nextar C-3 GPS previously, which was really great. That was one of the main reasons why I chose to buy this model (and of course, the price was really cheap!). However, I'm kind of disappointed with the way it operates.
Summary: I have had, and used it for about a mouth now... And well it seems to work great, I love it! I named her Susan... I think you should get one for yourself, or as a gift. You or they will love it!
It is a good navigation device, but may not be good for everyone

Summary: After using Garmin GPS for many years, I thought to make a change, and I bought this Nextar. To my surprise, it is not that easy to use this one. After 2 week try, my wife still does not like it. So I bought another Garmin, 1350T. Comparing Garmin and Nextar, you will see Garmin is so easy to use.
Summary: The good: iGo8 software is awesome, with text-to-speech, lane assist, deep pool of POIs. In fact, the abundance of the POIs sometimes makes my thought of getting a smart phone (I think I will only use it for searching locations while on the go) sound stupid.
