"Took a chance on this new product, and was glad I did!"4.5 starson by stack5960
Pros: Fast acquisitions, intuitive features, responsive touch screen, very accurate maps, hands free communications much better than anticipated, great street annunciations, this GPS has it all.
Cons: Have not tested fully, but appears battery life could be short compared to other units
Summary: I bought this GPS for a Christmas present to my self as I wanted to use it on a Christmas trip to Texas. As this unit was only introduced in Oct. from Motorola, and was being marketed exclusively through Radio Shack, I was reluctant to buy a brand new release, but this unit advertised everything I was looking for and it was specially priced for Christmas. I took the unit out of the box, gave it the recommended charge and went to programming in my Texas destination. What an easy job! The touch screen was very responsive and the directions provided by the unit were very intuitive. I attached the unit to my windshield in the provided carrier and headed for Dallas. The maps were very precise and provided me flawless guidance without a single missed turn. The find food & lodging came in very handy and never missed a single point. The real surprise was how well the hands free phone features worked, as I had read from other reviews that these features did not work well due to weak FM recievers or poor quality speakers. The Motorola hands free worked flawlessly and provided great reception. The folks on the other end of the conversation said that it sounded like I was in the same room with them. Overall, I was very impressed with this unit and would recommend it to anyone considering a comparable Garmin unit. The only thing I wished would have come with the unit was a wall charger...it only comes standard with a vehicle power source. For the money, the Motorola offers more features at a comparible price to the Garmin, and they work! Keep up the good work Motorola.
