Junk!

Eagle_Driver, Amazon
22 May 2008
  • 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.

Piece of Garbage

J. Graham, Amazon
22 December 2007
  • 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.

Hampered by Windows CE

Darren Morris, Amazon
22 April 2007
  • 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.
