My Backup is a Garmin Too!
I bought this Nuvi because I thought someone had stolen my other Garmin of about 3 yrs out of my car. Turns out my son had gotten it to make a trip to see his sister about 3.5 hrs away. I actually haven't played with this one much yet, but it is quite a bit simpler (intuitively...) to use. I think it may even update 'on the fly' faster than my other Garmin. I got my old Garmin back a couple weeks later, and if it didn't have a bunch of routes and contacts I like, but as soon as I can sync them over... poor older Garmin will be retired with only occasional consultant situations in the future. The Nuvi lacks the speed limit and of course the speed warning if exceeding the limit. I was used to setting it as an alarm to keep me on my toes. I don't think you can do any of that on this Nuvi, but I could be wrong. For the price it is phenomenal. The only gut feel I'd like to share is that if you want a timely update, the Nuvi will notify and let you choose how to do it. You don't have to remember it... ever. The updates and maps as I understand it are FREE for LIFE. I haven't checked into that on this purchase, so I really don't know. I just know I like this little Garmin guy a LOT. Simple yet powerful and efficient. Great GPS and travel guide unit. Allows setup of most common things people look at for this type nav unit. I can type 'Buccees' and it will show in distance and time with routes to get there for the closest then next, etc. I love that too. Just a cool and reasonably priced GPS and nav unit.
I can't quite give it 5 stars because of the lacking speed monitors and alarms... but that is a small price to pay for something that will automatically update for FREE with new maps and local establishments all around your travels.Read full review...
A life saver in Costa Rica!
Doesn't work like the touch phone screen I'm used to, and sometimes it will tell you to turn on roads that are not there, but once you get used to it, we couldn't have done without it. Maps are useless since many roads are not marked. Phone maps use lots of data and the costs can get high. This a great alternative.Read full review...

Value and Size
I like the size of the GPS; you can literally put it in your pocket if you decide to use it walking the streets. This package beats paying for the map of Europe alone. It's economical and practical. I don't leave for Europe for another couple of months, but I tested it, searching for addresses in Europe. So far it works. The exterior condition is a bit beaten up, but the inside appears to be intact. The final testing will be actually in Europe. I did hear that the first time you turn it on in Europe, it takes a very long time to boot up. Can some one confirm this. What's your suggestions?Read full review...

Got me almost 3000 miles
I bought this for a recent road trip as I had time constraints and couldn't do my usual meandering. It worked well though I did laugh at how it pronounced Squirrel Spur Road!

Good Quality and Great Value
Got a really good deal on this Garmin... No frills bluetooth. However if you need GPS from point a to b this is perfect model. Only gave 4 stars due to it taking a long time to acquire a signal

my first GPS
Simple to use. Only need it once in a while. Used it only once to a destination and then back home. Worked well and now feel secure that if I want/need to go somewhere, with ease I can get wherever!Read full review...
