Great little unit


For the money, you cannot buy another GPS that gives you the most bang for the buck.

This is a great little unit, has allot of features, and can be used to find almost any thing. The color screen is great for day time use and then switches over to a night time screen. The windshield mount is great and the speaker on the plug is loud...

The unit is a little slow to load its maps. Some times its a little slow to acquire the satellities needed to route you somewhere. I wish it had more memory, as I am all over the northeast, and it cannot hold all of the maps, so I have to save...

This is awesome


Has some glitches on expanded roads, but very nice.. no more flipping through maps, or figuring out how to get from a hotel to a point of interest.

Great MiniGPS System


This is a wonderful device. It allows the user to program in relevant maps, and it can find restaurants, airports, fuel stops and more. The voice is great for the car, and its small size makes it extremely easy to carry. A must for a frequent traveler.
