Pros GREAT DISPLAY AND COMPUTER VOICES! COMPUTER UPDATES ARE A SNAP! TRAFFIC CAMERA WARNING ARE A BIG HELP AND WORK FLAWLESS!
Cons CUSTOMER SERVICE IS POOR ESPECIALLY IF YOU HAVE A TECHNICAL QUESTION!!
Summary IT DOES A LOT AND I COULDN'T ASK FOR A BETTER FUNCTIONING UNIT!!
Pros relatively easy to use. Nice traffic camera warning beeping and FM updates. Telephone tech. service good despite long hold. Works across the border into Tijuana, Mexico and back!
Cons not as quite as bright as the Garmin 1490 t. Computer map update 1.5 hour (but does work).
Summary Costco's has for $170.00 (-$30.00).
Pros Big screen, updated maps, strong signal (just dunno how it will fare with cities with skyscrapers), clear day/night screen mode, clear voice but you have to have a sense of distance cuz it doesn't tell you the street name until you're ready to turn.
Cons No multi-destination feature, the voice misses to tell you when to exit on the freeway but the screen shows it so you would really have to look sometimes.
Summary The unit I got had probably been updated cuz I have some of the features that others said it don't have like the "travel via..." feature or street names. Mine has it but with only 1 voice but there are downloadable voices. I guess the others chose the other voices and they only tell you the distance. I like the 2 mounting options (dash or windshield) and the carrying case that came with it. So far I never got lost using it. You really just have to look cuz it doesn't talk often which is at some important turns. I guess that's why they made it with a bigger screen.
Pros I really liked the idea of lifetime map updatesI guess. I'll wait for Garmain to offer the lifetime map updates and will purchase that brand.
Cons Not intuitive. The turn by turn directions were vague, not naming streets and such, just "turn left in 800 yards".
Summary I've used a friend's Garmin Nuvi a number of times and felt that it was much easier to use and understand than this product. Returned it...'nuff said.
Pros once it finds its self it works okay
Cons There are too many issues to list. It's no wonder the executive in charge of maps for Apple was fired for selecting TomTom.
I have never been so disappointed as I am with this product.
Summary My wife won't upgrade her IStuff because she doesn't want the new map, supplied by Tom Tom.
I believe there are a lot of I owners doing the same thing.
