I love the unit especially the 3d look, I even got a pink car, cute!!! I purchased a TomTom before this unit and it stopped functioning after a few trips wish I had returned it sooner but I kept it too long and could not get my money back :( even with the reciept, so after a few years and some careful research I thought I would try this one. I made sure to get the service agreement this time, just in case..... I took it for a test drive and at first it tried to take me on roads that I would not normally take home but the second time it brought me home without all the extra turns so I guess it "remembers" so to speak. The only thing is I wish I had known that you need an SD card to get the max downloadable map information, I did not see that information when I ordered it, so now I will need to purchase an SD card. I will be taking a long trip soon and I hope it performs well as I won't be familliar with the area and will have to rely on the units guidance soley. Hope this helps:)

This is a upgrade for my old 205W that each my wife and i have had for a couple of years now. I usually upgrade the whole unit verses just doing the map updates/upgrades to take advantage of new features that have come out. First of all, the 5" screen is awesome! You would not think that a small upgrade from a 4.3" screen would be that big of a deal, but it makes a HUGE difference! It seems to render much faster than the old unit, having Bluetooth for my phone, and the Traffic maps is really a great addition in making my deliveries much more efficient. It does take a while to update it, though so make sure you plan a lot of time to get that done, however once you do it the first time, additional times will not take as long. Also, the speaker is MUCH louder, making it easier to hear it during the day. All in all, a great unit, good price, and glad we got these ( we have 2) for us.

This is my second personal Garmin and I thought it couldn't be any better then my 265WT. I was wrong. This unit has other features that comes in handy.Like your speed turns red if over speed limit, lifetime maps(4 per year) and traffic updates, 5" screen I can see better. Garmin has to be the easiest GPS on the market to operate straight from the box. Updates are very easy to do also.I am off on a trip 2 to 3 times a month so use alot.I got GPS for family members last Christmas, should have waited for this one. Great product!

I purchased this GPS to replace an old one that was stolen. It didn't take much time to download the updated maps when I received it. I've used it numerous times and it works perfectly. The only thing I would change is the junction view feature. It goes off too quickly. The traffic feature has helped me avoid a couple of jams so I love that feature. I haven't taken the tme to check out all of the features but, so far, this unit far surpasses my old Garmin.

This is my first portable GPS. I have one built into my Tundra that I've used for 3 yrs now; but it runs off a pre-loaded DVD and does not have all the impressive features of a unit that can talk realtime with satellites. WOW - what a diffference. And I LIKED my Tundra unit - until I realized what I was missing. Garmin unit is super intelligent and so intuitive that the manual is only needed to learn advanced tricks and features. Got it here on sale for $188. Got the beanbag dash mount for $15 at amazon, and leather Garmin storage case for $20. (Don't buy the case and window mount bundle package if you live in CA. Illegal to mount on windows here.) Took unit to Portland, Maine and challeged it to find Littlejohn Island (accessable by island-hopping cuaseways) out in Casco Bay. After 3 tries by me, it found it and took me there. (Hint - island is NOT part of Portland, Falmouth or Yarmouth). This unit shows the speed limit and your speed, changing your speed to red numbers when you exceed. Cool. Then took it to Monterey, CA and it found every restaurant and landmark I was looking for. Almost bought the Tom-Tom package bundle from Costco until I saw how many got returned to them. Garmin truly does it best. Be sure to get a unit with LMT in the model #. It means Lifetime Maps & Traffic Updates. IF you do NOT get Lifetime maps, you will pay $80 - $100 every year to update your unit so it can continue to talk with the updated satellites. Pay a little more upfront for a LMT model, and never pay for a map update - ever. Also, be sure to create a computer account at Garmin, register the unit and do a map update before your first use. This will take 3-4hrs. Be patient. This unit will be worth the wait, grasshopper.
