13 April 2013
Summary: This is a great GPS! This gps has accompanied our family on many trips! This is a great device and works really well. Great quality as well. I am happy that this device came with a case as many GPS system do not include the case. This was a nice gift to me from my husband that I am so happy to have! The device also comes with an SD card and slot, mp3 player, it is touch screen, and has a little stick to use to touch the screen with. All in all great device. Enjoy!
Summary: I've had my X3 unit for 3 years or so and it's been a great GPS for most of that time. Until recently it only messed up once where it shut off and I couldn't get it to turn back on. It was at night, so it wasn't till I got home that I found the reset button which fixed it. Recently it took my wife in circles, and along with that I can't get any map updates for it, so i just bought a new Garmin 50LM.
Summary: THIS PRODUCT IS THE 2ND ONE PURCHASED. 1ST ONE QUIT AFTER ONE YEAR OF USE. JUST OUT OF WARRANTY. IT PERFORMED WELL DURING THAT YR, SO I ORDERED THIS THE 2ND ONE. IT ALSO PERFORMED VERY WELL, UNTIL JUST BEYOND WARRANTY. THEN IT SUDDENLY QUIT, JUST LIKE THE 1ST!! WOULD POWER UP BUT WOULD NOT PROGRAM UP. TRIED THEIR WEBSITE, ONLY TO BE FURTHUR FRUSTRATED. SEEMS LIKE THESE ARE PROGRAMMED TO FAIL. "FOOL ME ONCE, SHAME ON YOU. FOOL ME TWICE, SHAME ON ME.".
Summary: Love this little thing!.....I had one from this company b4 so I'm used to how easy it is to use,....for example: when my crew members would try and navigate to my location using many other brands of GPS, the 1st thing they would ask me is, WHATS THE ZIP CODE???....and I'm like,... I DON'T KNOW!...WHY DO YOU NEED THAT?...and they say, OH, I NEED TO PUT IT IN MY GPS AND THEN THE TOWN OR WHATEVER,....please, ARE U KIDDING ME?...
Summary: I understand this is an older model, but if you are thinking of getting it to save money DO NOT!!!!! I have the 2008 X3, first day the dash mount broke. Also it would say "waiting for GPS signal" for 20 minutes. Once I was in an unfamiliar place when it took very long to find the signal, I drove around waiting for it to find one and ended up in a bad part of the city.
Summary: Product worked splendidly for the first 12 months. Almost to the day, one year later...it would not allow you to get to the "address screen" to enter your destination. Called customer service, they said since the warranty had expired, basically, I was out of luck. I said I understood that they were no longer required to repair my unit for free...I was interested in what the cost would be to repair it.
