Pros Intuitive interface & easy setup
Cons Sometimes takes a while to lock onto the GPS Satty.
Summary This is the first GPS I've owned & used (except those I've used in rental cars).
I've only owned this unit for a few days, but I find I'm very impressed with its operation.
External SD/MMC memory is a must for installing maps. Onboard memory is pretty stingy (32MB) and will only store 1-2 maps tops - not good for interstate GPS-assisted travel.
The unit has taken its time on a few occasions locking onto the GPS satellite, but otherwise system performance has been VERY good.
Pros Nice big screen, lots of available memory with SD card, route calculation is fast, very fast and stable satellite acquisition. My experience with acquisition is opposite of other poster who said 2-3 minutes. Rarely takes more than a few seconds, sometimes
Cons Routing decisions are very questionable. Going north from my house it has me going south on the interstate for two exits, then making a u-turn. Does this repeatedly. Biggest complaint is the software. It is map loading only. Even the custom POI does not
Pros Signal rarely drops, and when it does, it comes right back. Re-routing works very good Maps are extremely accurate (Orange County/Los Angeles areas) Easy to understand voice instructions Seems VERY smart overall. I could not be more pleased with it.
Cons Menus take a little getting used to Typing in addresses isn't always the easiest, but you shouldn't be doing that when you're driving anyhow.
Pros good color graphics good maps and a decent price many points of interest
Cons need to get update software from navman website for it to work properly, needs to be reset once in a while
Pros Price.Size,color,portability,v erbal aid for directions, 3D, battery operated, great mounting and touch screen.
Cons Navigation wheel is sensitive and sometimes sometimes my street number is shown incorrectly when starting navigation...but...is that so important?
