ViaMichelin . . . A cute toy

tracer630, Ebay
20 April 2008
  • Summary: I've not had much experience with this type of GPS, I have one which works with my laptop, and is a 100 times better, This unit seems a bit limited, I have used it on my daily travels, back and forth to work, shopping etc, It (unlike the one in my laptop) only allows you to set one destination, with no minor stops on the way. It offers only 2 choices of trip planning fastest, and shortest. In either one the estimated trip time is not accurate.

Very Limited

  • Summary: With all the options today, you may want to look for a more user friendly unit. The unti works ok but it takes some time getting used to. I do not know how old the maps are but I am going to guess that at least 3 years old, and I have not been able to find how to update them, the site does not give much guidance.

x 930 GPS Navigational System

Overstock
27 July 2007
  • Summary: I like this system overall for value. For the money, it is worth it. We were happy with it on vacation, but for dependability, possibly not the best for work. It could not pick up a long distance route, possibly because of the satelite possititon, but couldn't determin exactly why. As a Real Estate professional, It is not the easiest device to use. Instructions booklet very sketchy but we persisted in it's use. Overall it is a workable tool.

Good, not Great

Veronica Bennett, Amazon
22 July 2007
  • Summary: This GPS system is the least expensive of its kind and it works. For basic navigation, it is adequate, however, after a 2500 mile trip, there are some concerns. As other reviews have indicated, some of the information is outdated. Also, this system has a tendency to stick to interstates when other routes might be more appropriate. The battery life of the unit is slowly diminishing.

Will get you there but...

Speedy "Speedy", Amazon

  • Summary: I got this to replace my GPS navigation software I used with my pocket PC. This unit is not nearly as advanced as what I had before. Sometimes it also does goofy routing through a residential area instead of a major road when clearly the major road is the quickest. In the end it gets you there but sometimes you get there in a less then optimal route. The menus are not intuitive. But because it does not have many options, that doesn't matter too much.

A good product at a great price.

Amazon Customer "John P from KC", Amazon
27 June 2007
  • Summary: I must admit, I bought this product with some mixed feelings. The reviews I saw here on Amazon made me wonder if I might be better suited buying a higher end unit. I decided it was worth the risk and bought it. Here are my thoughts after using it on a recent road trip. The Good: I love the ability to pre-program destinations. This made it easy to find and save all of the places I wanted to visit on my trip, making finding them later a snap.

okay for a starter GPS

MB, Amazon

  • Summary: First this is pretty good for anyone looking for a cheaply priced GPS with reliabilty however those who already possesed or used to GPS like Garmins etc, might not be happy with its interface, but comparing with the price it goes for it packs quite a few good stuff: 1. Integrated Sirf III Chipset (latest in GPS Technology) 2. Navteq Maps (Same as used by Garmin's products) 3. Based on other reviewers recalculates routes faster if u miss a turn. 4.

Déçu de chez déçu

ammm40, Ciao
4 December 2008
  • Summary: Voici 3 ans que j'ai acheté ce produit pour partir en voyage de noce en Espagne. Le contournement de Madrid a été des plus folklorique (autouroute à 8 ou 10 voix: "restez sur la file de droite", 100 m plus loin: "restez sur la file de gauche". J'ai observé la même chose en France, mais je ne sais plus où. N'étant pas né informaticien, j'ai eu beau suivre le manuel afin d'effectuer les mises à jour, je n'y suis jamais arrivé.
  • Pros: bien sur les grands axes (mais là c'est pas dur)
  • Cons: Il lui arrive d'être complètement largué dans certains ronds - points
