Summary: While this is not the best GPS navigational system out there with tons of bells and whistles, it gets the job done. Newer and more expensive models include voice recognition and text to speech features. I feel that these are overkill and not really needed, especially text to speech.

Summary: After reviewing most of the GPS devices in the $300 price range I decided on the ONE XL. ($275 was just too good to pass up.) So far the XL works as advertised and after some practice I find it easy to use.
