Summary: This GPS is complete junk. Mine had repeated software problems after just 4 months of use. I had to reload the maps twice and it finally crashed for good. Customer service was no help - telling me to reload the maps both times only masked the issues. It's cheap, overpriced junk.
Summary: I have been dragging my Whistler WGPX-550 on every business trip I take for two years. I have beaten the poor thing and its windshield holder too. THIS IS A PREMIUM GPS!! You can go out and pay double or triple easily but you cannot get a simpler, more user friendly, always works, always exact...
Summary: I bought this unit for my son and the troubles began immediately. The touchscreen seemed to vary on which option in which to lock up the unit. The only way to unlock the freeze was to remove power, including the battery. The company refused to replace the unit and sent us new software to load.
Summary: This unit has some great features and ergonomics, but Whistler's choice of OS makes this unit annoyingly unreliable. Having to completely exit the GPS program before shutting down the system is a huge pain in the rear.
Summary: I am new to the realm of GPS; I have been looking at several different models for a long time. I expect other brands to perform better, but for the price I paid (on another online retailer) I took the leap.

Summary: This is my first GPS system. My first impressions were great. Easy setup, easy to figure out how to use it without even using the PDF manual. I like how it quickly recalculates a route if you miss a turn. I really only have one complaint, but it is major.
Summary: When I click on GPS, it complains that either IntelliNavEN isn't there or it's not a valid WinCE program. I've tried putting on the backup from the DVD... nothing changed. This is very very sad because it was working fine for four days.
Summary: Purchased for $299 at CompUSA in December 2006. The Good: Price, Nice touch display, User replaceable 3.7V Li-Ion battery The Bad: A Windows CE "crash", a few hangs recoverable by battery removal, no maps available outside of the USA, Puerto Rico, and Canada, MP3 player does not run at the same time...
Summary: I love my Whistler GPS, I went and did a lot of tests - from everything to taking completely wrong turns, stopping at places not on the programmed route, finding a local supermarket via the way points, going to work while skipping a traffic congested highway, navigating to another state without...
