Summary: It is very good. At first I thought that was difficult to use, but after a couple of days I found it very easy. It is very intuitive. When some new address is not loaded in the database, I just mark it directly on the map and it will take me there. Works with ours cel phones.
Summary: ViaMichelin is going out of GPS business. You will be buying a unit that will be discontinued and presumably neither supported or updated. See below: ViaMichelin, the subsidiary of the French tyre manufacturer specialising in digital travel assistance products, has stated it will no longer...
Summary: Ok, after a week of using this unit, I say I like it. Pretty easy to figure out without using the manual. I tested it on known routes, and it sometimes takes you a way that you know to be slower, or not as easy, but that's probably true with most units.
Summary: This unit is ergonomic and seems otherwise well-designed, but once you want to use it outside the US and Canada, you're out of luck: Michelin maps and guides of Europe are NOT available for this product for US customers!
Summary: I bought this GPS in February of 2008 for $199 because my g/f owned one and I was impressed with it during a vacation trip. Lately I've noticed that my GPS needed updating due to missing new roads, etc.
