Not too big, not too small.

This unit does NOT have an internal battery (that big screen needs a lot of juice), so it can only be used in the car using the auto power adapter (included).

I sent it registered mail so I know they received it.

The main draw of this unit is that 7 inch screen. It's big and easy to read, but it's only 234x480 resolution. The low resolution makes things a bit grainy. Still, at the $100 price it's available at when on sale, that's still a bargain since it can be put to many uses in addition to the GPS functionality. You can watch videos, use as a screen for a back-up camera, and so on. It also plays MP3's.

The GPS functionality is very basic, but works as advertised. Please note that this unit (2100) has an external GPS sensor on a short cable together with a metal plate and adhesive, not a flip-up antenna like most units. Not a big deal as long as you expect it. (In fact, it could be an advantage for some people, depending on where you mount the unit.)

The screen is big and fairly bright. As an everyday GPS I think it works pretty well, though it has a pretty limited feature set compared with other popular units. A lot of people never use all those extra features and getting a 7 inch screen for $100 is definitely a good deal.

This unit does NOT have an internal battery (that big screen needs a lot of juice), so it can only be used in the car using the auto power adapter (included). However, you can use it in your home with an AC->DC power adapter. It takes 12V 1A positive tip, I happened to have a 12V 3A +tip power unit for a Plextor DVD drive laying around and that worked fine. You can also buy adapters for $10-20 online or at places like Radio Shack. Just make sure you get the right plug size with a positive tip.

Playing around with it indoors by a window it took a few minutes to find the satellites the first time, but after that it would usually get a fix within 20-30 seconds. 4 sats seems to be enough for this unit. Anyway, that's pretty good.

After reading the setup instructions, I went out to the car and had it plugged in and ready to go in about three minutes. I turned it on and it found the satellite in seconds. It is so intuitive to program that the manual isn't needed. I found the mall I was going to on the screen and it guided me there flawlessly. This is one very easy machine to use. Great map picture, easy voice instructions, so simple a caveman could use it. And, the seven inch screen is just right. Not too big, not too small. You can hook it up to the windshield and take it down very easily. No need to keep it in the vehicle. I really like this thing.

This is my first GPS and I found it to be worth money spent. It has video, audio, games, aux support other than the main Navigation feature. Screen size is awesome. I loved it but the POI is not too exhaustive.

Got my GPS today and couldn't be happier. Works great, even out here in the middle of no where! Don't even need an operator's manual! Really couldn't ask for more for $99.00 shipped!

I got this for my wife for X-mas and it was a really nice unit to start, but has some drawbacks. The screen size is nice and the satellite connection tended to sync quickly. The drawbacks were the lack of AC adapter (car charger only) and no battery which made it difficult to program in the house or even the garage. Six months later the unit stopped syncing and now loads for a few minutes, then reboots over and over.

To top it all off, the company website [...] where you are directed for support, has an expired domain. I just ordered a TomTom to replace it. From what I can tell, an extended warranty is a must for GPS.
