Works right away.


One glitch. The power cord connector was for another model, absolutely would not fit. Fortunately had a cord from a cell phone that did the job. Plugged in, it was all ready to go. No manual to speak of and this was my first attempt to use a GPS.

it was a gift?


This was a gift for my wife to replace our old GPS. The old one would have cost $120+ to upgrade the maps. So just the life time map upgrade is worth the price I paid. So far she seem to like it and says it works good.
