If "OK" works for you, and you don't mind having to figure out how to use a device pretty much on your own, you might like this. It routed us wrong in the Metro area and it routed us wrong in a rural area. It tends to give you ... Expand full review

I like that it has so many features, such as the games, video viewer, and MP3

Maps aren't accurate out of the box. Doesn't seem up-to-date (or decade) on rural areasl! Needs better directions! Other mapping kept us from being lost. May be "multi-function," but you can only use one at a time. Not good w/ road closures

Unreliable,False sense of having GPS; Better without it

 

You are buying an unreliable device. It will give a false sense that you have GPS. when you need the device the most, you will feel stranded.

It was inexpensive. Buy.com picked it so it could make money, as specifications on paper were impressive. But, many issues to get it working. No refund was possible. There are few lousy games and terrible blue tooth that works, and this is plus side

Signal strength is an issue. Give 5 minutes when stationary in good fair weather conditions. If lucky, the device will get the signal. If not, keep maps print out. Not a reliabile device. For signal strength, the suggestion was external antenna

Mixed feelilng but overall it is Good

 

The unit is quite heavy and thick. -The mount's suction (to windshield) is quite strong and seems enough to support it but I am still a little worried that it can fall. I will use a string to tie to the rearview mirror as a failsafe mechanism. -I love...

Bright and colorful screen ; Fast re-calculation ; Additional voices and languages are available on internet ; Free premium maps with 11 million POI from V7 support site ; the maps are quite updated ; So far all the calculated routes made sense...

Slow signal locking (about 5 minutes in the morning) ; Battery level indicator is faulty. It shuts down the battery after 40 minutes (advertised life is 2.5 hours). After a hard reset, the indicator would be back to 75% level. Then it would shutdown...

Interesting

 

For the price its great. But for updating maps, forget it.

Solid package of items encloses. Car charger, home charger, car attachments. Unit was fairly easy to set up. Impressive GSP Unit, my first. Now I don't know how I lived with out it

The Unit is a V7, however I don't know where this company is, oversees or California. Hard to find web site and very basic info. Get this thou. To update your maps you have to send the ENTIRE unit out to California. Not just he SD Card. The entire...
