Works ok


As a basic model it does it's job. Took a while to get the maps updated. Even with the updates it still wants to send me down roads that don't exist or via longer routes. Over all it works when I'm in strange cities.

Pretty Good Value GPS


I got this for my Dad for Father's Day. Hasn't been in use for that long, but so far he seems to like it. My Dad is not tech savvy and after showing him the basics once, I think he's got the hang of how to use it for the most part. I've used it myself...

Pretty simple, easy to use interface
