Rated 5 out of 5 by from Accurate if basic This is the third Garmin GPS unit I have purchased - my original was bought in 2007 and is still working fine - relegated to a third car/visitors. This model has a clear display, is very fast to acquire satellites and has an improved user interface. For day to day use it is perfect, though it lacks certain features such as instant lat/long readout - a handy feature for me, but not one most people would use. Lifetime maps is a good feature as the Garmin updates are very expensive otherwise (unless you go third-party). So for the price paid, it was not only affordable but will not cost anything to keep updated. I am pleasantly surprised by its excellent performance for what is a budget device.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Features I originally purchased a different brand GPS with a two year warranty a couple of weeks ago, but returned it faulty and under advice, replaced it with the Garmin at additional cost, with only a one year warranty. The Garmin unit itself seems to generally work well but unfortunately I did not realize that it does not have junction views, which can be very handy in heavy traffic areas, especially if you are on a main road in a strange area or different state. Some of the spoken street names.also are so ridiculously mispronounced or misnamed as to be continually annoying with every single trip, every single day.....including my own street. I'm going to return it and go back to my previous brand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great item I have had a Garmin for about 10 years now and have been more than satisfied with the product so now I am looking at purchasing another as I have founds the other brands not as user friendly and it is less annoying. I find there is nothing worse than a GPS squawking at you all of the time.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Garmin good products, customer service not so Bought this as a gift for my partner. The unit itself is good but was advertised having ability to pair with Garmin smart watch, not true! This model does not have the feature like it was advertised! Returned it for one that did have the feature.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good old Garmin I have been using Garmin navigators for year now. The five inch screen is the perfect size, the device shows you street names as you pass them and what street is ahead. Very easy to follow and extremely easy to update and manage with the garmin desktop app.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointing gps It shows nowhere near as much useful data as my old Navman and doesn’t give a spoken countdown to the next turn. What’s the point of having to look for street signs if you have a gps? Looks like I’ll be going back to my original favourite the Tom Tom when I can afford to buy another one.
