This unit is great for the price. It has good looking maps and I find the directions are okay as well. I have had tried ones from Garmin and Magellan and they seem to give the directions the same way. I paid 399.00 for this unit and if they ever add a route summary it would be even better. I would give this a unit a 7 for menu and a 10 for how the maps look. Other than the menu system i would give this a 10 for speed at finding my location. It does have some short commings like not having a route summary and that is a big one. The POI is ok from what I have seen so far. It seems to work as well as the other units in its price range. I thought about selling it but after spending time with it for the lat few days I am going to keep it. You cant beat it for the price and it works really well at what it does. I know some of hte reviews have not been that good but I have used two other units and they were not any better other than the route summary. I thnk the menu system is better on this than the Magellan. My friend has the high end Magellan and he liks my menu better than the one he is using. I could go out and spend another 3 hundred dollars and get the garmin but for the money this one will do just fine. if you want a nice unit for the money this fits the bill, if you want all the bells and want to pay for them then get the garmin as this is a great product as well. They all have good points and bad ones but for 399.00 this is a great little unit.
