    It goes without saying that this unit needs a lot of space. It is about 4 times the size of a 4.3 inch screen. I have used the unit for more than 5,000 miles in a Sprinter based RV, I also use a Garmin 765 at the same time so the comparison is between these two for navigating.

    The Snap7 has several outstanding features which I really love. The large screen displays more information than the Garmin, including miles and direction for the second turn as well as next turn, speed, distance and time to destination and very good lane information. In a city, it does a much better job of showing which lane to use than does the Garmin. I especially like the feature that it will zoom out to either 5 mi/in or 20 mi/in range until close to the next manuever. It does a beautiful job of showing terrain like mountains, lakes and city boundaries. Useful on a cross-country trip. It is excellent as a second unit

    The negatives- The screen is hard to see in bright light, not nearly as bright as the Garmin. The voice is very poor,almost unintelligible. I use POI Factory a lot for camping areas, rest stops, favorite locations, etc and can find no way to download the POI's into the Snap7. In fact the installed POI's are awkward to use. The most important deficiency is the routing. At least a dozen times it calculated a different inferior route than the Garmin. The Garmin nearly always gave better directions no matter what settings you used on the Snap7. Only twice did the Snap7 give better routing than the Garmin.

    I am happy I bought the Snap 7 and would recommend it, expecially if you have a vehicle with a large windshield and do a lot of cross-country travelling. With the low prices of GPS's now it is feasible to use two units for different purposes.

    The big screen works great if you can find somewhere to put it (I mounted it in the CD tray which is below the radio in my accord.) The mount is strong with three way movement, but the suction cup slips loose easily with the softest touch of the loosening tab, which can be annoying. The screen is easy to read, with good colors and picture, and the sound is easily loud enough for the highway in my car (full volume). The options and features are great. They could be overwhelming for people who want to click and go, but the simple mode is simple enough. You have to play with it for a little while to learn your way around all the features, but you can do almost anything you want as far as navigating. The bottom line is you don't get weather and traffic, but for relatively cheap you get a huge screen and a great navigator. The nav is fast and accurate, and the voices are great.

    I got this for my husband because he drives several states for his work. However, old school that he is, he didn't use it for his work. But we have used it about a dozen times for presonal trips. We were for the most part pretty happy with it but now it just froze up. We have tried everything from charging, changing sim card etc. The PROBLEM lies herein... there is no longer a nextar.com website and all of their customer services numbers state they are no longer working numbers. So, I would really hesitate to purchase any GPS system from Nextar if all anyone is doing is selling out the rest of their inventory.

    Purchased this unit via Amazon. The price was unbeatable. No qualms with the map detail - - it shows street names and I enjoy the green signs that display showing exit names on expressways. The screen does not do well in sunlight. It bleaches out thus making the display somewhat difficult to read. Although the option menu suggests you can choose from a variety of "skins," only the default skins for night and day are included. Neither the Nextar website nor any other sites offer skins for this device. And I am not the type to tinker with the internal program in an effort to customize colors or other features. The unit will power down automatically when the ignition is shut off. However, you must push the power button to turn it back on. Small inconvenience but I would have preferred an automatic on and off. So far as routing goes, I have yet to be "taken for a ride." I use the unit mostly in the Metropolitan NY and NJ area. But it performs equally well in some of the southern NJ hamlets I visit. I do not care about playing MP3s, viewing photos or using the unit as a bluetooth device. I wanted and purchased a GPS. In that respect the unit is well-worth its modest price. Do not be dissuaded because "Nextar" is not a well-known brand. If it works - - who cares what the name plate says!
