Reviews around job (4.26 of 5)

  • On the plus side, the display does a nice job of showing me where I am and the directions, when they work, do a great job of letting you know what lane to be in/when you are approaching a turn/exit.
  • We all know customer service is a thankless job, but they were unable to assist me and they did not follow up with a requested return call
  • Does a good job in searching for near by places and taking you through scary back side roads to get there.
  • How is that Google, a company for whom maps and navigation is but a side project, to this day still does an infinitely better job at finding the quickest and shrewdest route to a destination than Garmin, a company for whom their only mission since inception has been navigation?

  • The maps were fairly accurate, it took us the long way around DC and was missing map information for some roads in North Carolina
  • The maps were fairly accurate, it took us the long way around DC and was missing map information for some roads in North Carolina
  • I will never buy another Garmin GPS until this company vastly improves their maps, their touchscreens, their batteries, their operating systems, their voice command recognition software, their tiresome update procedures
  • Love the graphics and maps, love the split screen and speed warning also
  • It is like Garmin took maps from 20 years ago for this unit- trying to send me literally through grass fields and wooded lots

Reviews around gps (3.88 of 5)

  • set was easy and the gps is easy to use, I bought this because for whatever reason my tomtom would not work in Indiana.
  • Nice GPS, easy to use and very accurate, but the battery went dead after a few months
  • I was thinking it’s 2018 and all gps should have barely any lag
  • Not the easiest gps to use, but not bad for the price...
  • Also, if the GPS would happen to fall off of the ball mount, then it would just fall onto the street and be broken into little bits.

Reviews around phone (3.81 of 5)

  • Most annoying thus far is that it doesn't give continuous, updated ETA to destination like before and like any good smart phone app.
  • My phone gives better navigation than this unit, Even though I updated it to the latest map version, it doesn't work out in the country very well.
  • I use my phone now and burn data
  • and I don't have a smart phone, so this does this job for finding addresses.
  • I definitely trust my smart phone more than this device.

Reviews around product (3.57 of 5)

  • The unit is an inferior product compared to an older Garmin unit I used to have.
  • It clearly states "this product is ready to use" on the box, but it is not.

  • so it is defiantly not an amazon company problem but the manufacture of the product false claims in humble option.

Reviews around feature (3.50 of 5)

  • The only missing feature is that we could not transfer the saved addresses from the old Garmin to this model
  • Many good features, but the essential screen visibility in bright sunlight is poor.

  • I haven't explored all the features but so far, I would recommend this for quality and price.

Reviews around road (2.09 of 5)

  • I bought this when it was on sale because I always wanted a GPS and I work far from home in a very remote/rural area on my state that is prone to road closures, delays, and is never plowed during inclement weather, so I find myself taking detours and getting hopelessly lost
  • Works as you would expect a GPS to work these days
  • Not so intelligent in its choices...dirt roads?
  • I tested it on multiple routes, and it took me down dead end roads, and crazy routes
  • Has a hard time finding obscure township road that Google can find though.
