4 out of 5 eggsGood for the price

Pros: Light weight, Crisp clear screen, responsive touchscreen, Volume is loud. recalculates routes.

Cons: Have run into the problem where it thinks I am off road on some older highways here in Iowa. Recalculating route can be a touch slow at times, Seems to like to take me on the scenic route. Have run into two instances where it never told me to turn until after the turn.

Other Thoughts: This is a entry level unit, but is solid. I have had three GPS and while this is missing some features I liked for the most part its fine... I find I miss a flip up antenna, and bluetooth.... I will continue to test it and if I still have issues with it not telling me to turn when have strong sat signal or saying I'm off road then well see...

3 out of 5 eggsGood while it lasted

Pros: - Easy to use.
- Easy to set up.
- Got a free map upgrade with it since it was purchased within a map update release window.

Cons: - No driver disc.
- No instruction manual.
- Died after less than a month's use.

Other Thoughts: My unit worked great during the short time I had it. I updated the maps and had added a couple new voices and vehicle indicators with very little trouble once I figured out how to do it. Was even planning on doing some light geocaching with it. And then it died on me. Right now it's in RMA limbo on its way back to Garmin's offices in KS, replacement should be here in a couple weeks. I know it was a refurb, but I expect a refurb to last at least as long as a new one would, so I knocked an egg off for that.

4 out of 5 eggsGood Unit, Great Price

Pros: Great value for the price. Bought this for under $100 with free shipping, and it works everybit as well as my 2yr old Garmin Nuvi 350 ($400 back then). New 2010 maps are free from Garmin site within 60 days of registering unit. Great price for basic, simple to use navigation.

Cons: Does not have the text to voice feature. Takes a little longer than the nuvi 350 to find the satellites

Other Thoughts: Had an issue with registering the unit with Garmin, said it was already registered. A short session with tech support resolved the issue. Updating the map software was a long process. As always, super quick shipping from newegg.

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Shows good navigation. Really like the features of this GPS and the price.

Cons: Unit intermittently looses satellite reception in wide open spaces. Called Garmin, performed master reset, new software load, etc. Unit still looses satellite reception. RMA now in progress.

Other Thoughts: Newegg RMA process is real easy.

5 out of 5 eggsVery Pleased

Pros: Had no problems with the unit from day one. Went online with Garmin and registered. Downloaded the offered free 2010 update map. Also ordered the TOPO
map set for hiking.

Cons: Wish the battery would last a little longer.

1 out of 5 eggsDo Not Buy

Pros: None

Cons: The unit came and the first time I turned it on it told me it had no maps available for routing. I registered the unit with Garmin and was told I had to buy a map. I will be getting an RMA and I will want my money back. I will never buy another Garmin again.

3 out of 5 eggsOk but ...

Pros: Came in good condition. Looked new. Had car power adapter and mounting hdwe. Powered up and acquired sat in short time. Bright display.

Cons: No home charger but if you download the full manual you find you can use one of your old mp3 microUSB connector to charge the unit on a computer USB port & also connect unit for garmin.com site. Unit comes with 2008 NT North Amer map but no update capability unless you pay. There was a note on the garmin site about a free map update within 60 days of purchase but it doesn't show as an option when you register.

Other Thoughts: Might be better deals out there for a few more $$$.
