The music player accepts both MP3 and WMA digital music formats, while the photo viewer can display either JPEG or BMP digital pictures. And though the controls and menu system are extremely simple and intuitive, if you need a bit of assistance, this unit provides a handy on-screen help system.

1. Finds your location within seconds of turning it on.
2. The only time it loses its location is inside a tunnel.
3. Very nice display. Maps and fonts are very clear.
4. Calculates your route in a couple of seconds.
5. Does a nice and logical job of calculating the best route, most of the time.
6. Entering addresses is very easy.
1. Battery life in the spec is 4 hours. I can only really get 2-3 hours out of it.
2. After it calculates your route, you can tell it to avoid a road, and it will recalculate a different way. BUT, you cannot detour a road that you are on. So if you are sitting in traffic on the highway, you cannot tell it to recalculate and completely avoid the road you are on.
3. For some reason, it like to calculate routes by getting you off of the highway as fast as possible and have you take more city streets. So, if it is a little farther to take the highway to your destination, but is quicker due to highway speeds, it will still route you through city streets, because it is shorter even though you would be moving at city speeds.
4. It does not remember the contrast setting. Every time you power it on, it is at full contrast, which doesn't help the already short battery life.
5. The volume of the voice is too low, even at full volume.
This is a very good unit, and you get a lot of useful features for the price.
Just to address some of the other comments made about this unit, I have not experienced any of the software bugs mentioned in regard to navigation, though I did sync the unit up to my computer when I first got it and I reloaded the maps myself (but I have no idea if that made any kind of a difference). I took this unit from Connecticut to Canada (and back again), and had no problems with it. I lent it to my parents while we were in Canada so they could find a tavern in Toronto they were meeting friends at, and it got them there and back with absolutely no problems. I haven't experienced problems with volume or road noise either. I actually ended up turning the volume down all the way for most of my long trip because I didn't need the spoken directions, but when I did have it on, I could hear the voice commands no problem. I suppose some folks just happen to drive very noisy vehicles.
If there was anything I could change, it might be to add the ability to program in a specific route from origin to destination (which I assume that higher-end GPS's might allow) but the unit does allow you to exclude selected roads from your route, and it also quickly recalculates on-the-fly as you take different roads than those recommended, so its not like such an addition would be necessary, and just to address another comment someone made about how the unit chooses which roads to take, you cna switch between "fastest" route calculation and "shortest" route calculation, so it may have been a matter of simply choosing the other option in that case.
When I do go to Canada, I happen to take the same route every time, but there are a few exits that are easy to miss. Having the GPS made it much easier to determine where I was at any time and what the roads around me were. Knowing that if I take a wrong turn I won't get lost makes the driving much easier. What also helps is the strong SiRFstar III satellite connection. The instructions that come with the GPS recommend having the unit on the windshield or dash, and possibly to get an external antenna if one's heat-blocking windows interfere with the signal. Well, my Acura's heat-blocking windows didn't seem to affect the signal at all, and I also had the unit down in my front cup-holder (not recommended for safety reasons, by the way), and the signal was as strong as I could want it to be. Depending on satellite alignment at any given time, you *might* have to re-acquire a good signal when you first turn the unit on, but that's to be expected, and is no fault of the GPS itself.
I also found the "night mode" for the display extremely helpful, since in regular mode the display can mess with your night vision a bit.
If I had to suggest any "improvements" LG might make, it would be to remember one's display and volume settings, etc, and to skip the disclaimer that comes up whenever the unit is powered on. But these are minor annoyances, and given how much I paid for the unit, it's hard to complain.
Anyway, the touchscreen is easy to use, as are the buttons, the menus are simple enough to figure out and navigate, and its nice to be able to change the size of street names. The information on-screen while driving was complete (complete enough for me, anyway), and the compass heading was handy (but expected). Battery life only really matters when you don't have the unit attached via car lighter adapter to your vehicle's DC power, and most people don't purchase this kind of GPS for extended walking around anyway, so 3 hours' battery life seems adequate to me.
In all, I feel that I got a great deal for the money I paid, and I haven't experienced any of the problems others have complained about--if I had, I would have followed up with the warranty service, or at least tried exchanging the unit for another; ANY product is susceptible to a lemon here or there. So far, I haven't had any problems with any of the LG products I've puchased. So, take that for what it's worth.
One thing I wouldn't mind is a more intelligent POI system. If I'm going towards a certain direction, I'd like to know the POI's in that direction, not just the closest ones near me. but i hardly use the POI function.
Yet for all that its pathfinding seems excellent, it's very accurate and I have no major complaints. It's good at the essentials, but once you get past that the extras are almost bafflingly quirky. I would only recommend this unit to those who find an unbeatable deal and are fully aware of its oddities.
