3 out of 5 eggs Trip vs. Route 08/04/2012

This review is from: GARMIN GPS Navigation with Lifetime Map & Traffic Updates

Pros: Not a pro or con, but watch what you want. I bought this for the Trip Planning capability. When this unit didn’t function the way I wanted I started extensive running this issue down. Bottom line the Trip planning is just that you plan a trip and you MUST go to those waypoints before this unit will show you the next location. Even shaping points you MUST go to. This is a big change from last year’s model which was a Route planner. You weren’t required to go to the points the unit showed you the entire route and would recompute if necessary. The goal was the end point. So I ended up getting the last year’s model 1490 to get what I wanted. It’s too late to return this year’s model 2555. Live and learn.

Cons: Nice features but I didn’t get what I expected and would have gotten last year’s model if I knew the difference.
