Reviews around information (5.00 of 5)

  • There are score of streets in Manhattan, NYC that have permanent no entry/turn with reference to time between 10am to 6pm, such information would be worth its value in dollars for thousands of commercial drivers on the move in Manhattan, NYC
  • However, I have found the information I receive from the Nuvi is well worth the investment.
  • When the unit works, it provides clear, concise information and is nice to have on trips to unfamiliar areas
  • And by the time you find out the proper information, it may be to late to do anything about it.
  • Excellent useful additional information like the speed limit on the road you are traveling and expected time to reach destination.

Reviews around navigation (5.00 of 5)

  • The TomTom unit selected excellent routes almost always, but I wanted to have voice commands, so I tried this Garmin, thinking maybe they had improved the navigation---but unfortunately, no.
  • Excellent navigation, no hazel, no problems so far with the equipment
  • great navigation; phone gets dropped (unrecognized) occasionally between uses
  • The pros are that it has a clear and legible display, and a reasonably logical navigation system that should be easy for most anyone to use

Reviews around map (4.56 of 5)

  • Easier to use, more intuitive, better mapping, more reliable and the Traffic alerts actually work
  • I got it because somebody wrote that it is better than Google maps on the traffic updates
  • My 2008 Mazda 3s has factory nav, but it lacks traffic and the new maps cost hundreds.
  • Thankfully, I had my iPhone as well as an atlas and road maps, so my wife was able to navigate us to our destination
  • The maps are easy to update online, the bluetooth connection to my phone is smooth and clear as a bell, establishing connection to the satellites and calculating a route are both quick, 5" display is plenty big enough and the voice directions are clear and helpful.

Reviews around phone (4.45 of 5)

  • No Garmin GPS devices aimed at the automotive GPS market is in the same ballpark as a recent generation smart phone with Google Maps or Waze
  • The bluetooth hands free phone link is especially valuable for updating vehicles that do not have integrated/on-board hands-free phone capabilities
  • I compare it with my smart phone, the smart phone will save me at list 30 to 40 min. in traffic
  • Product works great, i really like the hands free phone link.
  • I use both but don't want to have the maps apps on my phone use all its resources and interrupt phone conversations

  • Basically using the unit is frustrating. and irritating
  • Once my destination is entered this unit is very accurate and provides timely updates.
  • Even with this, I would still recommend this unit if someone was considering it.

Reviews around speed limit (1.00 of 5)

  • Also, the Google Maps on my Droid doesn't tell me the posted speed limit and the traffic functionality isn't as good.
  • One of my main reasons for having a Garmin is to be able to see the speed limit moreso than the posted signs sporadically around
  • It would let you know the speed limit, school zones, and est
  • Come on Garmin, why remove speed limit signs from the map file or the ability to add/change or update.....disappointing....Also didn't see the functional "school zone" I've seen advertised online on the newer ones, but maybe not this model
  • Doesn't always show the speed limit and sometimes is incorrect.
