"Failed to power up or work out of box; had to return."0.5 starson by chicago user
Pros: None. It never worked.
Cons: Failed to power up out of box. When returned, store had no others. Supply of product poor, and ability to work poor. Overall, poor. Suggest you avoid.
Summary: The above says it all. I bought this at OfficeMax the day it came out. I was excited, as it seemed to promise a lot for the price (Navteq maps, multimedia player, small form factor, etc.). Well, physically it lived up to promise -- small, portable form factor; great windshield/dash mount, etc. Unfortunately, it failed to power up out of the box. Same was true whether plugged into car power adapter or a home charge (you have to supply your own home charge cable -- 12v standard). In any event, since it never worked, I couldn't use it. Had to return it. When tried to exchange it, OfficeMax said they had no others. They only received shipment of one. So, overall, seems like Averatec has a problem with supply and with making a product that actually works. Suggest you avoid it unless/until the manufacturer figures out how to provide a functioning product. And this review comes from someone who loves technology and generally rates things very highly (just check out some of my other cnet reviews over the years). Trust me. This one is a dud.
