Full of Software Bugs, Terrible UI, Bad Directions
19 November 2011
Summary: This is the most terrible piece of electronics I own. I got mine for a very good price, and I bought one for my mother-in-law. The user interface is terrible. It has the most non-intuitive set of buttons and a laborious process for doing the simplest tasks. The touchscreen map controls are terrible.
Summary: I bought this GPS without the knowledge that it could not be upgraded - ever. The first year or so it was great. As time has passed, roads have changed and I would only use it to get out of a place by clicking "Home' and hoping for the best.
Summary: DO NOT BUY! I have used this gps in 3 different states. TMC has never showed any form of updates, but does showing 'Tuning/ Tuned to' implying that it is working. Unit is not aware of HIGHWAYS made in the past 50 years. 40% of the places I need to go to, the unit is not aware of.
Give the unit a chance. Its not half bad at all and it plays MOVIES.

Summary: I received the unit as a gift of choice and was immediately dialing from my sons phone with it in the car home after bluetoothing into his phone. Some of the street names were funny to hear with so many strange road names out there but it was accurate in that regard.
Summary: You may have to spend some time getting to know this, but when you do, it is a very useful product. I bought it for $100 at Walmart and am not complaining. I rate it 4 stars particularly for the price I paid. As others have noted, it is feature rich: MP3 and bluetooth are particularly useful.
Summary: Item arrived missing parts. Called and was told not available but would give me a credit on Amazon. Problem, part not available on Amazon. The software on this unit is terrible. Difficult to use and very confusing. Don't try it if you don't have a lot of patience and an IT degree.
Summary: I should begin with a caveat - this is the first GPS unit I've owned or had any extensive experience handling. I cannot compare it to a TomTom or Garmin unit because I simply do not have the experience. That said...I've been very pleased with this GPS unit.
Summary: I got this for $169.99 at Amazon. I have had it only for a week but used it extensively for a 4 day vacation. Pros: - Basic features work very well - TTS is good. "Dr" was pronounced "drive" and not "doctor" - Bluetooth worked without any problems.
Summary: Yea its a reliable product however, some of the features dont work quite as good. The fm-transmitter has pretty low quality, the battey probably lasts for 30 min with full charge. If the battery goes out, which always happens, u have to reset the time date etc.
