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 I did buy this in 2006, and it was amazing then, but now everything is outdated.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!

Others might be better

Hans Drews, Amazon

  • Summary: I purchased the X930 for my wife. The con they list is probably the most important fact they can mention. It is difficult to the point of impossible (occasionally) to input and find locations.

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...

unintuitive

George E. Guthrie, Amazon
1 January 2008
  • Summary: Out of the box - it hasn't been easy to figure out how to get around. I haven't had time to read the manual but I never had to with my Garmin. It didn't charge in the cigarette lighter on my rental car and left me stranded in Dallas - Lost. I had to call for help.

Perfect GPS for the price and a great gift!

Michael Drips "Book junkie", Amazon
17 November 2007
  • Summary: I read a lot of reviews and examined a lot of GPS units at local retailers prior to purchasing this unit. For the $150 that Amazon sells it for, there is not a better GPS in the price range on the market. I've never owned a GPS before, and I am extremely satisified with this unit.

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.

Best value, slim, GPS navigator available!

Ji Bae, Amazon
25 September 2007
  • Summary: Skeptical of the low price, I got this GPS to try it out and return but I'm definitely keeping it. It was the cheapest GPS I could find out on the market that was small enough to fit in my shirt pocket.
