Big Bang For The Buck

 

This piece of equipment is great if you can find it cheaper (around lower 300). it is about 33feet off but it tells to make a turn or take exit almost 500feet ahead, which is no problem. the external button makes it easy to zoom in or out while...

Well design, Easy to use, touch screen + external buttons, MP3 Player, Image Viewer, Preloaded with US map, Canada map included in CD, 20 channels

33 feet off, 3MPH off, little glair, slow cold start

Useful Under Most Conditions

 

I've had one of these for about a year and a half. It works reasonably well most of the time. However, the maps were out-of-date when I bought it and Whistler has yet to release new maps. As a result, I find myself having to check Google Maps for the...

Easy to use. Pretty much "just works

No map updates. Flimsy mounting bracket. Awkward shut-down

Impressive performance, though lacking in features

 

The soon-to-be defunct Comp USA was auctioning these and I got a refurb unit for under $90!

Excellent reception and performance, quick start time, accurate navigation

Lacking in features, buggy, volume for spoken directions is low
