Carvin R600

 

While this amp has lots of great features and power, it is sadly lacking in the most critical feature - reliability. Wait - I take that back; it has reliably let me down in every live show I ever used it in. Specifically, for no known reason and at...

Carvin R600 III

 

To be honest I treat my bass gear like crap. I play at least 4 times a week if not more and most of the time I dont have time to be nice to my gear. My first amp (a Peavey TNT 115) died on me, my second also a Peavey (Nitrobass 400) craped on me as...

Carvin R600 Red Line Series III 600 Bass Head

 

I've been able to play ANY style through this, currently running bi-amped with a 4x10 and 1x15. This head is great for recording and killer in a live rig! I can coax ANY type of tone from funk to nu-metal, fits right in with the jazz set, and is lofty...

Carvin R600 Series II

 

I bought this amp three months ago and after I sent it back because itbroke on the 2nd day (Series II was a month old) it works perfectly.Mainly I bought this amp because of its tone, sound-possibilities andits price. These are still the best arguments...

The R600 is a solid, but not outstanding GPS unit. Its large display and simple user interface are positives, but the large, bulky size, combined with a lack of text-to-speech technology are downsides.

Large 4.3in display with auto light sensor, solid Destinator navigational software, Bluetooth handsfree calling

Large and bulky, chunky window mount, no text-to-speech technology

Great buy, and great product

 

I've owned others, but this works so well. Don't have to worry about getting nicked with this one. Great buy, and a great price.

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Excellent product

 

Descent package for $275 designed to people with above average tech IQ. I would buy it again

BT, GPS, turn by turn prompts, MP3 and video player Excellent price Relatively accurate got confused a few times in San Antonio, TX in a maze of new construction on loop 410. I find it acceptable

speaker and mic have low sensitivity while connected to the phone via BT hard to hear over road noise. Maps that came with device dated late 2006.

Asus made a expensive toy!!!

 

R600 looks simple & good^^. and include muti-media player. But navigation s/w is Destinator6!! it sucks~~~~~ Routing looks like simple &easy, but it's not enough information to relax driving.

Main function(Navigation) is sucks!!!

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Big plus for my business!

 

I have not used the Bluetooth phone connection yet. I will get my upgraded phone in a couple months and plan on using this. I have friends with units from the major competitors and they love the way this one works. The cost was less than half of some...

This is an excellent product for the price. The maps are no more than a couple years out of date. It was easy to navigate through the menus. The longest time I have had to wait for a signal was around 3 blocks so far. The ability to add pictures to the...

I wish it came with a cable to connect the unit directly to my computer. It cost less than 10 dollars to get a USB card reader to transfer the files to the unit. So this isn't a major problem.
