"Great product but battery died within first four months"
22 December 2009
Pros: This thing is way cool when it's working. Blue tooth is great. One thing I liked is that you can search for a point of interest near your destination or your current route, which was great for road trips.
Cons: The dang thing will not hold a charge, Garmin has a WEAK WEAK WEAK warranty. Map updates are insanely pricey. If you spend this much money on something, you should be able to update it for free.
"I agree with CNET review, dissappointed with this unit"
11 October 2009
Pros: Lots of features including traffic as an option. Keep satellite lock well once locked on. Lots of POIs and easy to find and add more.
Cons: Sometimes slow to update directions, seems to lag when making a turn before the GPS actually catches up to position. I have 2 of these units and they have both forzen up on a couple of occasions each. I did the latest updates, seems better.
Cons: 1. Route type options such as Fastest time, shortest distance, most use of freeways,avoid tolls. These options are in the settings and you need to modify settings for each route 2. Voice is computer generated hard to understand and many more....
