Worst GPS

 

If i actually follow the directions given by this device, it would take me twice as long to get to my destination, if not longer! I pretty much ignore it, as it's so useless!

low price

inaccurate...it's the most important feature of a gps unit

Adequate for getting you there

 

You get what you pay for. If you're looking for a basic, cheap unit this is OK - just be aware that you're not getting a 5-inch, bluetooth equipped, real-time-traffic, lifetime map updates unit.

Cheap, small, it works ; The purpose of a GPS unit is to get you where you need to go, and this unit does the job

1) The car adapter was DOA. I had an old phone adapter that I spliced to get the unit to work ; 2) Battery life is poor. If you don't have a lighter plug available, this unit isn't for you ; 3) No wall adapter is included. If you want to program it in...

Meh

 

I have an older Garmin that needs the screen repaired, I should have spent the $30 I paid for this toward the $69 that Garmin wants to repair it.

Inexpensive, boots fast, acquires satellites fast. Has an stylus you can use for entry

Cheap. Mounting bracket does not have a lock to maintain positioning. Sent first one back after two weeks, blue screen of death (it runs on Windows CE) New one has issues with the power button sticking. Speed limit database warnings have quite a few...

Don't buy this

Stunned by the performance for the price

 

I've been searching for my first GPS for months. A few times a year I need to visit interns at several locations around the state and thought a GPS might be nice. I've always used printed out Google maps and an detail atlas of the state... its a...

Works well even for a GPS dummy like me. The manual leaves something to be desired as it doesn't explain everything in depth (nor is there any additional help on their website). However the manual does have just enough to get you started. Overall...

Screen washes out in full sun at certain angles fortunately the voice intelligable, however the pronounciation of some words are really funny (example: "U.S. 131" sounds like "mucous 131". The battery doesn't last that long and the manual says its not...

Bought two more

 

Can't go wrong at this price and not refurbished so my CC doubles warranty.

Small with all accessories included. Replaced my previous LG.At sub $40 immediately after I received checked back with NEWEGG every day and it went back on sale and I snapped up two more for gifts. Hasn't been wrong so far and beats trying to read...

None so far. and I hate to read instruction manuals

Horrible

 

It's compact and easy to see the indicator on the screen

Horrible interface. "For Dummies"???? I have this in my car and a TomTom in my wife's car. I manage a help desk and this thing is definitely not for a novice GPS user. I can figure it out but it took some doing and the signal is not what it should be
