Pretty, but flawed. Somehow the recent software has nixed the camera alerts and made a decent GPS less so.

Absolutely hate this device because it fails at it's primary purpose which is to give driving directions. After 2 minutes, the screen blanks out and is replaced with advertising. The only way to keep seeing the map is to keep touching the screen every...
