Top Customer Reviews
On the other hand, the speak street name and Lane assist with junction view is a big plus for me.
Overall, I wouldn't recommend this GPS to any users unless Garmin fixed their map lag issue.
Upon returning to the US, I purchased the US Map upgrade and loaded it onto a mini-SD card (there is not enough memory to load the US map into the device, and no way to delete the UK maps which I won't need again in this unit's lifetime).
The unit worked well for about a week of driving in the US, then mysteriously died. It will power up with the Garmin name on the display, but will go no further. It will respond to a soft reset, but it doesn't resolve the problem. It will not respond to the hard reset feature, nor will it connect to the PC.
Twice I've called Garmin support; once regarding buying the right US map for it, and now for the repair. Each time I am told 30-35 minutes wait time on the phone. I went through the online troubleshooting & repair request process, and the Garmin site determined it must be sent in for a repair. However, after you submit the repair request, you are told that someone from Garmin will contact you via email in 2-3 days.
So, if you don't mind long waits to support, as well as replacing an in-warranty defective device, then you will probably like the Garmin.Read more ›

The product works fine. In comparison with other GPSs, it lacks some useful functions like waypoints. But is practical to carry it in your pocket, because of its small size. Read morePublished 23 months ago by SebaZ
Overall, a very satisfactory piece of equipment. I use it a lot. Among other very minor faults, I don't care for the twentieth century computer-sounding voice.Published on March 19, 2014 by Don
