very good GPS overall


Very good GPS overall. Finds addresses pretty easily, however a little more difficult to use if trying to find a location/building (ie. a hotel) far away-- doesn't allow you to put in the name of the hotel in a city to find it. Very good visual...

Picks up GPS signal quickly, easy to follow

For the advance traveler.


The GPS I had before was easier to use. This one might have more features and may become difficult when you need a simple location to look up, or viewing while driving.About me... casual user

Great GPS for traveling


I traveled from Texas to Ohio and the GPS worked great. The dispalying of on and off ramps was especially usefull when reaching large intersections.
