I use this primarily for work. My wife was very impressed with it when she recently used it to travel to a wedding. She had not been all that impressed with Garmin before using this unit and says that she would like to use this one more when she...

Easy to use. It has been very solid and accurate

Garmin changed the menus so it took me a little while to find certain features. They buried the custom POI option in a spot that isn't a very intuitive spot

Very fast

 

This is my second Garmin. The older one is still usable, but slow screen updates and position lag make for a different experience. Its touch screen is also not so responsive, requiring extra pressure (sometimes I have to pinch the device to produce the...

This is a very fast GPS unit based on how fast it updates its map view(4+ times per second) and how little it lags behind my real-world position. The touch screen is very responsive and easy to use. The GUI works very nicely. The traffic information...

There are no clear cons. This device was highly recommended by customers on an online forum. This model of Garmin was recommended above the rest. No disappointments

Shipping Problems

 

Crisp wide screen. Speech is spoken clearly. Nice selection of POI

Would've given 5 stars but shipping took a long time. Need to stick to FEDEX or UPS and ditch USPS
