I bought two of these GPSs for Christmas gifts. One for my daughter and one for ME! I had an older edition of this same GPS that got stolen. When I hooked it up I was happy to find a familiar yet better device. Easy touch screen, clear pictures, and the added feature of icons showing gas and food locations. Holiday travel was a breeze.
It is difficult to review this product because I actually never received it. It was purchased through an Overstock.com reseller known as iSave.com. They insisted the product was shipped, and a box supposed to be containing the item was, in fact shipped. But it didn't contain the GPS unit. i.save said there was nothing that could be done. Overstock.com initially said they could not help me either because it was a reseller issue. I have to admit that after a few emails back and forth with Overstock's customer service, they made me whole again by issuing a refund. So I will say that you can order from them with confidence.
The refurbished price puts this amazing GPS in pretty much anybody's price range. First of all Garmin has the most intuitive interface of all of the major brands (I have owned them all) and this model's touchscreen is crystal clear and the touch screen is the best I have ever had in a GPS. What makes this GPS amazing is the built in dashcam which enables it to have lane departure warning and collision warning. I was skeptical how well those would work with just a single forward facing camera vs the fancy multiple cameras and radars some modern cars use but both work amazingly well. My first trip with it was from Nashville to Washington DC / Pennsylvania and back and it was everything I could have hoped for. The only reason it is getting four stars and not five is that twice over the thousands of miles I have traveled using it I have had it lock up twice. I only had to power it down and reboot it for it to work fine but one time it froze at a critical juncture in an urban area. I am not sure if the glitch has something to do with it being refurbished but I would still buy it again in a nano second. Best GPS I have ever owned!
