"A great GPS product for the money...a must have for any gadget junkie. No tech support!"on by LAW23
Pros Ease of use, intuitive and powerful feature set.
Cons The worst tech support I've ever encountered ANYWHERE!
Summary Have just about every new tech toy on the market and this one is my current favorite. Those with realistic expectations about what a GPS unit should do will appreciate this product. Unfortunately, I have spent the better part of one week trying to get through to someone/ANYONE in their tech support department. Some times, the number rings and rings...other times, I get a busy signal...have had a message stating that they are upgrading their entire support department and are "off line" and this afternoon, I was informed that my call was past 5:00pm EST when I called at 4:30. It is sad that a company with a great product is ultimately bogged down by the worst technical support I've ever encountered.
Pros Great ergonomics - easy to use software - cool product
Cons poor email support - old maps
Summary Executive summary: buy it
Battery (no messy cables)
Easy to use software
Does not work well with polarized sunglasses
Screen is hard to see in direct sunlight
Outdated maps (5-year old neighborhood in Austin Texas is unavailable)
No response from the customer service department with regards of map updates
Pros Quick routing, easy to read
Cons No Geocaching
Summary I got this at BestBuy as an open box item for $550. I had read all the user reviews so I was expecting some issues. It worked well right out of the box. It never lead me astray, it only missed some roads that were newer than 2 years old. When I purposefully ignored its directions, it quickly found another way to get to the destination. I played a lot with the re-routing capability including telling it to ignore certain roads.
There are 2 things which lead me to return it to BestBuy during their 30 day period. 1 it doesn't allow entry of coordinates as a destination. If you want to geocache, that is a problem. There is a work around by creating point of interest files but that seemed like too much work for the price. This brings up the 2nd point. For the $699 list price, you would think that it would have more features.
Pros Easy to use, janes voice is sexy!
Cons nothing stands out as a major issues
Summary Top product, used from south of UK to north with no problems at all... very usefull indeedy!
Pros Fast tracking, good touch screen display, medium size
Cons No speech to text command, only turn left 500 feet
Summary The software needs improvement. The POI lacks real POI locations. Restaurant are McDonalds, Burger King, Pizza Hut. tried locating an established restaurant - no luck. GPS count not find shortest routes -- the ones I travel frequently. Dricing directions are all turn right 100 years, turn left 250 feet. No names are spoken at all. The software really needs work. My Alk Pocket GPS that cost half as much words much better. Do not waste your money. You will be disappointed.
