Cons: Missing major Interstate and local roadwork that has been in process or complete around for a year.
Overall: I'm using the NT Update 2008 map with a Nuvi 660 in the Los Angeles, CA area. We've had completed major extensions of the interstate system (downtown and other areas) and major road alterations that have been in the works for years and they still do not show up on the maps or navigation. One bypass that I travel on frequently never showed up. The land that was originally where my company was at before is still showing up as my company, even though there are residential housing projects popping up there (El Segundo/LAX area). POIs are hit and miss. While it seems to show catering services run from people's houses, it doesn't show the old McDonald's that has been on in the local shopping center for years. At least for Los Angeles it's not really worth upgrading from V8. It should have been a clue that there are no specific changes or dates listed in the ads or packaging.
Note: This DVD is labeled on the package as a map upgrade for ONE Garmin GPS. Once you enter the unlock code on the back of the jewel case, it will associate the map code with your Garmin via the internet. So you can't just purchase one DVD map and also install it on your buddy's Garmin. Worse thing is that when you update the map, it takes around 1.5 to 2 hours to update this thing. I tried to defragment my GPS afterwards to make it run faster, but it wouldn't let me defragment the 998 MB worth of map data!
Not worth it!
I am also not impressed with the quality of the updated Canadian information.
I have also found many box stores and restaurants that have been around for at least 3 years in Charlotte that are not included in this update.
I am pretty disappointed that I have not seen any difference.
What's the solution? Install the US maps and buy an SD card for the maps of Canada for another $80 bucks. What a deal I'd have $180.00 into a GPS device that Garmin doesn't make anymore, whose map software is already extinct and that Garmin will likely stop providing support for in the near future.
As another reviewer said "save your money for a new GPS instead".
