"Some very important features LACKING"2.0 starson by Kaze12
Pros: Very nice display. Great colors and well designed case.
Cons: The Motonav does not display the street you are currently on. At all. Roads can turn and twist, and become different streets. This GPS will constantly show you driving on a blank line. So you better have a good memory if you need help,
Summary: I bought this GPS based on the CNET review. First time I have ever been very disappointed by a CNET review. The voice command is terrible! I pronounced everything very clearly and loudly. So did my wife. Over half the time it provided off the wall results that didnt even come close to what either of us said. We dont have accents or anything that would hamper or make voice recognition more difficult.
The voice command feature was one of the most important features to me.
The other astounding thing to me is what I listed in the cons. The road you are driving on is never labeled with a street name. EVER!. It displays every street around you, and upcoming cross streets, but not the street you are on. So, lets say you drive through an unfamiliar area and have car trouble. The street you drove down may have made twists and turns and could have gone through several name changes, of which the MOTONAV would NEVER have displayed or told you about.
You could tell the tow truck or ambulance what the cross street ahead is, or maybe the streets to the sides are, but not the street you are ON. Absurd.
If you want voice command activation and what to know where you are at a particular moment, without having remember every street you turn onto, dont get this GPS.
