Works great and it's very clear


Well we decided to go to our Moms house and take the other car that didn't have navigation built in. I loved it and It works better than the built in one. Great buy ;)

A joy to have reliable product for travel!


Excellent usage for locating in town business meeting or travel beyond familiar geographic area. Voice commands are clear and size of screen makes directions understandable.

Travel pal


I have relied on a GPS for years and when my old one died I knew I could not travel without one. This one has a few more features than my old one and I am still getting used to it.

good GPS in the mid-priced field


The voice from the GPS is loud enough and easy to understand. I appreciate the ability to update the unit. It is easy to see and I like the graphics for upcoming turns.

Does the job


This is an update on my original Garmin. It has a bigger clearer screen and work as it is supposed to. I was able to transfer all my locations from my old Garmin but had to repurchase the European maps.
