Good price, nice small size to store in the glove compartment or your coat pocket but big enough screen to easily see. Good voice directions. Got a free upgrade and a free new map download at the Garmin website. Really came in handy this past weekend for a trip we took to an area we had never been to before and needed directions to find a few places :-)
I got this navigator as a replacement for an earlier model Garmin that I used for at least four years. It's a very nice upgrade. The technology has improved a lot in that time, and the price has come down considerably. I don't use the navigator all that much, but when I need it, I really need it.
I've had it for a day, so I haven't used it much yet. These are my first impressions.
The good things:
1. Faster satellite pickup. That was my biggest complaint about the old navigator.
2. Text-to-speech capability. Not a huge deal, but nice.
3. Better shape for carrying in your pocket.
4. Better user interface. Very easy to use and intuitive.
5. Newer maps (obviously). It's nice that the navigator now knows about the (relatively new) street where I live.
The not-so-good things:
1. No decent place to mount it in my vehicle. I know this is a complaint about the vehicle, not the navigator, but it's annoying that I can't find a mount point that I like.
2. Doesn't include the USB to mini-USB cable. I had two of them lying around (I think one of them came with the earlier Garmin), so for me it was no problem at all. Many buyers will have a cable from a previous purchase of a navigator or a PDA or a cell phone or whatever. But for buyers who don't have one, it's a big negative first impression that Garmin doesn't include a cable that would cost Garmin half a dollar or less. Then Garmin wants $20 for the cable, when you can buy one online for less than $5 including shipping and handling. Not a good public relations move. But if they sell a lot of cables for $20, I'm sure they're laughing all the way to the bank.
3. The Garmin software to download maps really needs an option to remove the map files from the computer after they've been transferred to the navigator. Sure, I can find them myself and delete them, but it would be a simple improvement for the Garmin software to offer to clean things up itself.
So, all things considered, I'm quite happy with the new navigator.
During the first usage, the "voice" disappeared and needed to see unit to make sure we were following the mapped route. Turning it off and back on restored the voice characteristic. It does announce several times ahead actual turn that you are to make a turn. Last confirmation for turn is done almost as we enter the intersection.
Purchased this unit to replace an older one that we were unable to upgrade online for some reason. This unit does what we want it to do for us and seems to respond quicker to programming and our "driving errors." Would recommend this unit to anyone. And the bid price was also a plus for making this purchase.
