Great gps, cheap and simple

 

I got this for 80 dollars and it served me well, for the price you can't go wrong

inexpensive, easy to use, great for kids, beginners, or people who want an easy gps to use

buttons above the screen make it tough to use the buttons and see the screen sometimes, not a big issue
