    Customer Product Reviews

    Rated 2.7 out of 5★ by 3reviewers.
    Rated 3 out of 5★ by Just average Description says it comes with a USB cable to download updates and maps from computer. Did not come with the cable-the reason I bought it was to specifically download Panama maps. Disappointed. 04/27/2014
    Rated 4 out of 5★ by shouild have gotten larger screen works great would buy Garmin product again. 06/21/2014
    Rated 1 out of 5★ by DISAPPOINTING I currently own 4 GPS units: 3 are Garmin from handheld to auto, 1 is by another manufacturer for my RV. The Nuvi 42 is confusing to operate with both menues and sub-menues which have difficult paths and continuity. Data is more often then not 'Not found' when searching by catagories. Best success of finding something is by a direct search of the destination's full name. One cannot place destinations in the address book until one has arrived with the 'Where-am'I?' feature. No cookies to follow back home or backtrack. Road name data is incomplete, with many roads, and small towns, 'Not Found'. Routing is faulty: GPS will 'route' one off of the main road, to a secondary, only to return one to the main road some miles further up the road. Verbal directions are best described as dyslexic as they often announce 'right' when the visual depicts 'left', especially when concerning Interstate Exits. Not what I had grown to expect from Garmin. 06/23/2014
