Summary: Pros: +Pleasant interface. Very well polished product. +Only touchscreen, no buttons (except power and eject) +Catches satellites pretty quickly. It was catching satellites from within my bedroom which was particularly impressive +You can set route a certain way: ie avoid toll charges, use highways, etc Cons: -Unless you know where to go on the internet :) updating maps is quite expensive.
Summary: I am an expreienced user of GPS Navigation systems. This is my fourth unit. This product has a lot of nice features but many annoyances. If everything worked easily, I would give it a 5 star rating. PROS: Blue Tooth Handsfree Traffic Updates via bluetooth ( via GPRS) Various configurable options on routes - fast, toll roads, color of maps, voice selections, choice of languages, etc.
Summary: My wife and I were in the first week of what turned out to be an eight-month trip to Europe. We had gotten lost so many times already it was painful. Medieval European towns wouldn't know the meaning of "grid" if you hit them with it. They streets go every which way. In fact, in just trying to get from where we picked up our car to the freeway, we took a wrong turn and ended up 20 miles down the wrong highway.
