BTY, I am a Garmin fan, with at least 10 of their devices dating back 15 years or so. This deal was a dud, but Amazon Prime is the best! It went back the next day for a full refund.
I haven't done any big trips but I've been using it just to drive around town to places I already know how to get to just to make sure it works properly. So far I like it better than the old one. The voice sounds better than the old unit. I was surprised one day when, as I was getting closer to my turn, instead of saying "in so many miles turn left on such and such street" it said "turn left after the Panera Bread." Then as I got even closer It did then give the street name. It doesn't do this all the time and it might take some getting used to but when I ask people for directions I like for them to give me landmarks to look for so I'm thinking I'm really going to like that feature. I love the clarity of the screen and I think the touch sensitivity and response is better than my old one which did not have the glass screen. I think the voice command works a little better than my old one but it's still pretty hit or miss on whether it understands me. I like that I can use it with my phone for phone calls but I really wouldn't call it hands free. I was disappointed that you can't use the voice command to make calls. How is it hands free if I have to touch the screen to go into the phone app then find the contact I'm looking for then make it call. I will say though that the sound of the calls is much better than the Bluetooth through my car. I had smartlink on my phone with my old unit but never really checked it out much. But I looked at it a bit yesterday and I really like that I can look up an address on my phone and send it right from my phone to the nuvi. I think I'm going to enjoy that feature. I also think when I take it out of town I will find the foursquare function really nice for finding places of interest and places to eat. I live in a very small town and I looked online to see if there's traffic coverage for this area and there's not. So I can't really comment on the traffic function until I take it somewhere more urban. My old unit had a bad habit of telling me there was traffic ahead AFTER I was already sitting in it. But I know GPS traffic reports can only be as good as the data they receive from local contacts. Unfortunately when I lost my old unit the dashboard mount I had bought for it was attached to it so now I'm going to have to get another one of those too. However, I currently have it attached with the suction cup and I have to say it is holding much better than any other GPS unit I've had before. I will still get the dash mount though because I prefer that for placement location, especially as large as this is.
Now the problem which may not even be a problem. When I first start it up the screen flickers a little. It's not enough to be distracting and it does stop after a minute or two so I'm wondering if it might just be the new kind of screen warming up. It doesn't do it when it comes back on after just a short stop. I'm not sure that it's actually a problem but I think I'm going to call Garmin about it and possibly exchange it for another of the same units.
So the loss of one star is because the "hands free" calling isn't actually hands free and the slight flicker.
Updating already, I decided to go ahead and call Garmin. They looked up the serial number and saw that my unit is part of a batch that is having the screen flicker issue. They are sending me a new one that that is from a batch that the screen flicker has been resolved. Also I mentioned it would be great if you could use voice command for the phone function and he said you can. Apparently I just needed to scroll down on the voice command options screen and I would have seen that "phone" was a command option. Whoops. So I'm now giving it the fifth star because customer service was great. My call was taken quickly and the agent was polite and helpful. Also it's not a foreign call center so I could actually understand him and he could understand me. And now I know the hands free phone function is actually hands free.
Because my car has in dash navigation, I bought it just to use in rental cars while traveling for both navigation and blue tooth hands free use of my phone, so I've only used it to test it.So far, everything has worked perfectly and voice activation understands me a lot better than Siri does! I'll be using it for almost a week soon, and will be back to update my review afterward if I have anything new to report. But for now, I'm a very "happy camper" with this GPS!
I also bought a case for it...and advice from others to buy one to fit a 7" screen was good advice. The GPS slips into a sleeve in the lid that protects it from scratches...it's big enough to hold everything including my "beanbag" mount and will fit easily into the "bucket" I carry as a purse on airplanes.
