xroad rocks

 

This machine is great. You MUST however make sure you read the instructions and learn about its functions as it has many features and means you don't just switch it on and go. If you do that then you will love this

It's more than a GPS. It truly enhances navigation and communication while driving. The bluetooth hands free phone built in works great and has made my life so much easier

Not really a con...but it doesn't say the names of roads...just tels you where to go and when to turm etc....it hasn't been inconvenient at all more of an observation

Great GPS for the money

 

None

The Price + Features

The time sync option does not live up to my standards. I am use to Garmins where that you can tell the GPS unit how much to offset the time from the GMT ; I live in CST and I have to manualy adjust the time -2hr everytime the unit syncs

XROAD V4150 4.3" GPS Navigation

 

If the last reviewer, Bing, could let us know what antenna he got, it would be much apperciated. The one got does not fit.

Updated info on external GPS antenna

External antenna would help

Worth its price

 

Decided to purchase an external antenna be sure to get the MMCX and not the MCX type antenna. After installing the antenna it picks up a signal right after starting it. It even works inside my house and inside my work office now.

The price! Half the price of similar gps but with more features and also a very nice 4.3 in screen. Its keyboard interface works nice, very easy to type with. It does what a gps should do, that is get me to my destination. The 2gb SD card that comes...

At first I almost RMA'd this back to newegg it could never get a signal and if it does it loses it real quick, my wife convinced me to give a couple more days. We went to San Antonio for the weekend and on the interstate (I-10) it worked great. But...

Best bang for buck

 

If you pay $500-700 for one of those name brand GPS devices, you are a fool. This one gets the job done just as well. I look forward to IGo My Way 8 so it will have text to speech.

4.3 inch screen, Bluetooth, external MMCX (female) antenna option. Good OS and processor

Sometimes it takes a second to lock in on the satellites. (I ordered an external antenna, so hopefully that will help)

Suprisingly good for a no-name brand!

 

overall great buy and recommended if you don't want to pay for a brand name. it has way more features for the price. bluetooth is cool.

for the price the features are outstanding. easy to use without reading the manual. very nice touch/color display. many different variations for use

it has gotten confused a few times when entering or exiting the highway. the volume maximum setting is too low especially when listening to music on regular car radio

Consumer review by:

Amazing!

 

This unit is what I believe to be a competitor with the well known brands. It does what its supposed to do with a few extra bonuses. If you are looking into getting a GPS unit that does what its made to do then this is your choice if you want one to...

There are so many I don't know where to begin. Comes with everything you need from mounting bracket to a car adapter. Sleek with a large touch screen and accurate maps. You can't fight the price

None at All
