Consumer review (newegg.com)

Good starter GREAT PRICE!

 

Countries Major bodies of water, and capital cities are defined Throughout the wolrd, so thats good.

Well, I have to say that I was impressed at the qality that I got for the price. It's pretty accurate (after about 2 min) up to about 15 feet. Great starter GPS for anyone. I think I'll upgrade as soon as I start to have more of a need for it

It only defines roads in the United States. Everywhere else in the world you have to define your own roads and major points
