I bought this unit on Amazon for a very good price. The unit condition is like brand new. It works ok but the maps are slightly outdated. This unit came with a certificate for a 2yr free map upgrade but I was not able to update my unit. I contacted navigon support and they replied by saying that I am not the only person with this problem and they are working on it. So - I searched online and everyone with is having this update problem. Navigon support sucks.........
Buy this unit if u want a basic gps but i would not pay more than $50 for this unit.

I picked up one of the refurb units at a great price and I couldn't be more happy with it.
I have had another GPS for several years that I have always had good luck with.
But I wanted a second one so I wouldn't have to switch cars all the time and I figured this unit would be great for the car less traveled.
WOW it's better than my Mio that I have had for 2 years and I got it for a third of the price.
It arrived in perfect condition and it still has a valid subscription even though the company is no longer making units in the U.S.
They still continue to publish updates for it.
Including new maps.
Great product.

I believe the company no longer makes GPS's. So, I don't believe you can update maps at their website. The GPS has all I would need. I only need it so I don't get lost. I've tried it on ways I know the best way to go, and it sometimes shows a weird way, but you wouldn't get lost. So far, it has been fast to pick up a signal, and has a signal in areas my 2006 Magellan didn't. You do have to be careful not to put it into "standby" mode when you want to turn it off, standby will drain the battery. You have to hold the button down until it turns off to actually turn it off. Overall, I'd recommend it to other people, but let them know the compnay no longer makes GPS's.

My husband is the main user of this GPS and he says that it works well. The price can't be beat as well. We were very happy with the company who sold us this item.

I work for a designated driver service in St. Louis MO. The we use 3 units in the vehicles- one car uses a TomTom, which is excellent and current, another uses a Magellan that locks up and has been known for sending you in a loop and does not have the most current maps- essential for us when we have to pick up one of our drivers, or pre-stage a vehicle. ANd another has a built in factory (Ford) GPS.

I got this GPS on eBay for less than $50, and was impressed at how easy it is to use and the visuals are superior to the Magellan! Sometimes, my clients have had a bit too much fun..and I have to use my own GPS to get them home.

It seems to be better than the Magellan..trying to update these maps is a pain, as I cannot get the most current version for my region; nor update the POI list.
And when entering the registration and activation info, the unit stonewalls me.

But..for the price, it's excellent, and I would have no problem using this with my motorscooter..once I rig an outlet for the plug/antenna, and get a second mount.

Bought in Feb. Had to contact Navigon by email to register, then still could not update to 3rd q 2009. 1st q 2010 came out and that updated ( but you have to have a memory card 2gb or better I used 4gb sdhc ). Bit of a pain, But I got everything to work and ended up with a very responsive gps with up-to-date maps an text-to-speech for about $39.

Navigon has moved their market out of North America for almost a decade now. You cannot get new downloads once you buy this product. They (Navigon) are only trying to clear their stock of their GPS units. It was a good system during its short life span here in the United States, but heck, maybe they don't like us.....

I used this GPS and made over 5000 miles with it, the important thing with this machine is that it is showing the signs on the road before you approach them. For example, in New York area there are many signs to enter and there is also traffic and this machine show correctly what sign you should follow without being confused.
Showing signs (I mean with sign New York and there is an arrow on it, Boston sign and there is an arrow under it while you going on that direction) This helped me a lot to reach without being confused. The only problem I faced with I could not download the maps. I used the maps uploaded before so, there was no problem with the current maps.

I have been shopping GPS Navigation units for several months, comparing features and pricing. After an exhaustive search I settled on giving this unit a try. I purchased the $37 refurbished model which arrived very quickly. After initial setup the unit is working very well. My one complaint is map updating on the Navigon site. The unit I purchased came with 2 years of free map updates, however when I logged on to update the unit, the website would not recognize the unit's product code. All in all the unit is compact, easy to use, signal acquistion is pretty quick and the unit has a lot of features usually found on more expensive GPS units.
