Awesome Garmin

GARMIN nuvi 1490T 5.0" GPS W/Lifetime Traffic & Bluetooth
GARMIN nuvi 1490T 5.0" GPS W/Lifetime Traffic & Bluetooth

Pros: It's like new with available one time Map update and can be had with an extended 1 or 2 years replacement warranty. Man it's better than new!!! Bluetooth works with my Iphone. Sound is very loud and clear have no problem communicating using the bluetooth. The screen is big, bright easy on my old eyes even during daylight. Automatically switch to day or night time mode. Don't have to press the back button repeatedly to get back to the main menu. Just press and hold the back button and voila!!!

Cons: None!

Pros: For the price, this is one of the best memory sticks I've ever purchased. I have a total of 16GB memory right now and have had no hiccups whatsoever. Everything is a snap, I didn't think from 8GB to 16GB would make any difference but it did. Awesome!!

Cons: None..

Step up to EOS 7D from Nikon D40

Canon EOS 7D 3814B016 Black 18.0 MP Digital SLR Camera w/ EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS Lens
Canon EOS 7D 3814B016 Black 18.0 MP Digital SLR Camera w/ EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS Lens

Pros: Built like a rock!!! It's prety heavy and solid to your hands. Very clear 3" display. Comes with editing software.

Cons: The kit lens!!! The wide angle is terrible the barrel effect is too obvious even to untrain eyes like mine. Most shots I took on either extreme end are soft or looks like it's out of focus. i got to get me a good lens. Sigh!

Overall Review: Im still learning this camera. There's a lot about this camera's potential that I may not even touch . I'm afraid I've taken a bite off something I can't chew because I'm just a novice and this camera is for experienced photographer. I guess I need to start learning fast!!!
