Summary: I bought this to replace an exact model that was 4 years old. In that 4 years I kept this GPS attached to my vehicle, plugged into the 12 volt receptacle so it turned on whenever the vehicle started. I live in central NY where the annual temperature can vary between -20°F ~ + 100°F. I liked this unit so much I bought an exact replacement when the original began to falter.
Summary: Works great, and a smart thing to have as a backup for the phone gps. I bought this because it was inexpensive and easy to use, and because when driving into isolated areas I can't depend on my phone's gps since I loose reception. It's also just nice to have a backup in case my phone won't work for whatever reason.
Summary: I have been using this GPS navigator for a couple of weeks and have found it to be quite handy. I appreciate the ability to change many aspect of its behavior, such as 'north up' or 'heading up' on the map, '3D view' or '2D map view' and various other little things that make it match my prefereces . Previously I had been using my smartphone's nav function and was annoyed when the map became unavailable as soon as I traveled off the beaten path of 4g cell towers.
