Terrible out of the box, but good for geek (me) who likes to tinker

Summary: Where do I begin? The POI is lacking and outdated, upgrade map is not available, short battery life (less than an hour), screen is not the brightest. However, knowing all that, I purchase one anyway because the price I found was too good to pass up last year (well under $100) since I know I can add application to make it a more powerful device.
Summary: The Maps are very accurate, however there are two things I don't like about it. The first is that the measurements are in Yards instead of Feet, and the other is that it doesn't give you Verbal Street and Highway Names or Numbers. Over Priced with these concerns.
Summary: I give it three stars, because it has worked for over a year now. Would not buy one now, because Plenio does not make updated maps available, so maps are over a year old. As a result, it can not find any new streets or addresses. In addition, the rechargable battery lasted about six months. I now have to plug it in whenever I want to use it now. I will not buy another Plenio product, because the product support (maps and operating system updates) is poor.
Summary: 1. It doesn't have text to speech (knew before buying.. so can't complain on that) 2. It doesn't receive signal fast, and when it does..it doesn't recognize where you are.. keeps on pointing to where u last stopped navigation 3. Keeps on hangs up... and only way to release it is by 'reset' 4. Doesn't recognize some streets. 5. Impossible to see the screen in sunlight Returned mine..after it hung up and I reset it and I could never start it again..
