Pros: Big display, clear loud speaker, bluetooth, mp3 player, SD expansion, FREE shipping. I got this thing next day on a 3 day shipping. The upgrade tool on garmin website is easy and fast. Interface extremely intuitive. Great holiday deal, 500 dollar gps for 250 - NICE.
Cons: Doesn't come with AC charger for indoors even though you can use the mini usb cable to charge it - it would be nice to have that while you're messing with the settings.
Overall Review: I would HIGHLY recommend this to anybody. And if you are like me and were torn in between the cheaper garmin Nuvi's like 205 and such, spend the extra 100 and get this all inclusive REAL gps unit, you will feel good about your purchase.
Pros: Delivered in two days, cheap price($25 w/ $25 mail in rebate = free), big case w/ plenty of room, 120mm rear fan, decent power supply for a basic setup.
Cons: Damaged on both sides where you remove top screws to take off sides. Looks like it was dropped, and I don't believe it was shipping because the box was fine. The sides when put on the case will not sit flush leaving a gap on both sides where it should be flush.
Overall Review: This case was cheap, its a Raidmax with 450W power supply, I just couldn't pass it up. Plus the holiday special I got it with is unreal. Got here in two days on 3 day shipping. Take two stars away for the damage, but I won't RMA because its in an unseen closet.
