    Found my way to Garmin nuvi!

    Twice it got us close enough to our destination to see it but got a little confused on the streets getting us there.

    Seems to work well in towns, but totally unreliable in remote areas. Maps poorly drawn (satially incorrect) in many areas. Called customer service and they say they will make a note and let their survey department know that there are problems in your area. When asked how will that help me? Sorry, none. Buy new map! come on Garmin I just paid more than [$] less than 6 months ago. Borrowed a TomTom ($70) from a friend and worked just fine. Avoid Garmin if you can.

      I bought this for my daughter who just went away to college so she could find her way around a new city. She is bad with directions and I worry less about her knowing she has this gps system.

                I particularly like that the GPS announces street names. This feature makes it easier to identify an upcoming turn, especially when in unfamiliar territory.

                  Use product for simple navigation. It's very good with directions, great sound, and good options for alternate routes. Only problem is that it shows several roads that do not exist and have never existed.
