  • Happy with purchase
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Mark - 17 octobre 2020

    Works well, but I wish you could increase the font size to make it easier to read while driving. It also gets confused between Richmond city and nearby suburbs(Henrico, etc.) ( It can't find a Henrico address until you are already close because it only searches for the address listed under "Richmond" even though it may be less than 10 miles away. I do like the voice directions: "turn at next light, or "turn at stop sign. From what I remember from my older one. It would say turn right on Mulberry",etc. This is a problem in Richmond where many streets have no street name sign. All in all, I'm happy with my purchase, and the function of this GPS.

  • Awesome features, small issues with accuracy
    Verified BuyerReviewed by DL220 - 9 novembre 2019

    Love the extra features this model has. The drive app is great, and being able to talk/call hands-free from the unit when paired with your phone is great, especially when you use if for business. Traffic updates along the route are a great help and one of my favorite features. The only issue I encountered was with route accuracy at the destination arrival point. This only happened twice so far, and both times the address was near an intersection. The unit wanted to route me just around the corner on the adjacent street, like maybe there was a side entrance. Other than that issue, I've used it non-stop daily and am happy with it.

  • BIG improvement over my former Garmin!
    Verified BuyerReviewed by virpilosus - 7 janvier 2022

    My last Garmin, which I thought was "ok," just finally gave out...I could not update it no matter what I tried, so I opted to "start over," and buy this new one. Since, cosmetically at least, it seemed about the same, I rather thought it would operate the same. I was, and have remained, surprised and pleased that this one is a HUGE step up from the old one, beginning with the much larger and brighter screen. All the features are very helpful, and it responds to "changes" in traffic conditions, "re-routing," and giving directions a lot faster than the old one. It was a bit more than I wanted to spend, but overall I am very pleased with this unit.

  • Nice, large display
    Verified BuyerReviewed by ddiver - 23 janvier 2021

    A good purchase for me. Relatively straight-forward to drill down the menus; documentation could be a little clearer. Voice interpretation about 70% accurate. Have not traveled during peak times, so unsure how well the Traffic feature functions. Good sized display for my truck space, a bit too big for the RAV4, and the images presented are easy to see. Difficult to smoothly detach unit (and adapter) from the mount ball, but less so by removing just the GPS unit (leaving the mount adapter on the ball). Am looking at other mounting options, as the provided suction cup mount holds inadequately, and weighted friction bases cannot conform acceptably to my dashes.

  • It’s okay
    Reviewed by CGP - 26 juin 2021

    It functions as intended but it is not as instinctive as the previous model I had. It took me a while to figure out that I cannot save addresses ahead of time but rather it keeps a history of the addresses that you have navigated to. Neither does it have the fun features that my old TomTom gps had. I would have opted for a TomTom system but it appears TomTom is not being sold in Toronto anymore. I found it a bit frustrating that I could not play around with the settings without keeping it plugged in. Since the cable that came with it is very short, it means I have to either bend awkwardly down or sit on the floor to go through all the screens; very uncomfortable.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
