Hopeless

P. Golriz "persian", Amazon
1 February 2009
  • Summary: I'm pretty pissed with this gps. I did buy this in 2006, and it was amazing then, but now everything is outdated. Nothing is right, it doesn't even have my house...seriously piece of junk. No updates ever, I'm going to have to hack it to get tomtom or something on it, worthless. DONT BUY!

HUGE RIP-OFF! OLD MAPS!

John J. Menden "TowerCycle", Amazon
21 May 2008
  • Summary: This unit is essentially a paperweight. The maps are ridiculously old and there is no chance of getting updated versions, since ViaMichelin is no longer making GPS units. They have also turned a deaf ear to the existing customers who are begging for new maps.

Maps from 2005

D. Barnett, Amazon
21 February 2008
  • Summary: If you want a product that uses maps from 2005 and is accurate about 65% of the time, this unit is for you. I have tried repeatedly to get updated maps to no avail. Every time I call customer support I talk to some very nice people who tell me that they're still waiting on news of when the updates...

  • Summary: ViaMichelin is going out of GPS business. You will be buying a unit that will be discontinued and presumably neither supported or updated.

Terrible GPS, even considering the cost

T. Edel "TheHoofer", Amazon
14 November 2007
  • Summary: I absolutely CANNOT recommend this GPS considering all the name brand options in this price range. I purchased it based on the price and reviews and felt I had done well. I had no need for the extra bells and whistles that others come with, it was a better price.

Hard product to follow instructions.

Overstock
28 October 2007
  • Summary: This item is hard to follow the instructions and once you think that you have them corrected, you get an error message saying that your information does not match your search. I also tried the instructions on the web site which are identical to the inclose instructions and still the same results.

DO NOT BUY THIS GPS

Rahul, Amazon
24 June 2007
  • Summary: I was excited about getting a GPS and after seeing the price on this one and reading lots of favorable reviews i picked this one up. The unit is sleek and nice looking. Thats all is good about it. I punched in my office address which has been in existence for at least 10 years, it did not show up.

This product should be recalled.

Amazon Customer, Amazon
6 June 2007
  • Summary: The X-930 is unable to enter GPS coordinates with greater than 2 digits of Longitude degrees, making it a useless feature for half the globe, from roughly west of the Mississippi River to Singapore. I thought this was going to be a very useful way to enter Points of Interest.

trash

chev "chev", Amazon
19 April 2007
  • Summary: I bought this unit and thankfully found out that it belonged in the trash before the return period had expired. It did not accurately pick up my position anywhere, and also had problems picking up signals. I actually punched in Miami and the unit came back with "address not found" several times.
