"Best portable GPS yet"4.5 starson by cdharris
Pros: Large screen, 3D view, bluetooth, mp3 player
Cons: battery life, can't save routes
Summary: This is my 5th GPS and 2nd auto GPS. I had a Magellan 700 which was stolen from my car at Christmas. I started to just get another Magellan but after researching, I decided on the Garmin Nuvi 660 and I am glad I did. First of all, the larger screen is great. The names and lables are much easier to read and the 3D map mode is much easier for me to follow. A friend got a new Magellan 2000 and it is a nice basic unit, but the NUVI is much nicer. I think the Garmin has newer map and POI info than the Magellan. I had just updated my Magellan and even so, the Nuvi lists resturants, highway exits, and other POIs that the Magellan did not have.
I did not think I would care about the Bluetooth phone link, as I already had a bluetooth hands free kit for my phone, but the Nuvi is much better and easier to use. I bought the microphone and it works great. People I call do not know I am using a speakerphone.
I put a 2 GB SD card in it and have been using it as an MP3 player in my car. This works great, but if you have a good stereo system, just keep in mind that low bit rate MP3s will not sound good.
The unit will not operate long on the battery so keep it plugged in.
