Full of Software Bugs, Terrible UI, Bad Directions

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.
Summary: I agree with all that BeaBoo said and have used it with MP3's and my new Samsung Blast cell phone. It has performed nobly and has it little quirks (like all GPS's), but once you catch on it is a class unit!
Summary: If you want to run the risk of no customer supports with your expensive GPS navigation system, you can simply go to buy a Sanyo NVM-4070. Any questions you have, you can call 1-800-421-5013, after waiting for over 30 minutes, you can get the answer like this "Sanyo doesn't provide any updated...
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: I've been using this gps for a month now and personnally I do believe this is the best gps for the price consider its operation and features. I got this from Frys electronics for $200 I also owned a garmin C340,which is quite old.I will try to be more specifics on the major features.
Summary: This gps has been unfairly criticized based on user error or unreasonable expectations. Yes the date/time must be reset when the main battery if off but no big deal as the gps resets the date and time itself.
