I bought this a gift for my daughter who moved out of state. The directions were accurate and with the spoken street names and turns, it was easy for my daughter to drive to another state. The Point Of Interest came in handy for her looking for a gas station or a place to eat along the way. Since she is still new to her surroundings, she still uses this to navigate around. She used it to get to work until becoming comfortable with the route, but then needed it for an alternate route. She loves it and relies on it to get around. It has not let her down. The 5" screen is a plus and easy to see. The 3D map is comfortable to look at and easy to spot areas. I would consider this an entry level GPS, but very accurate and trustworthy. Once the route is set, you don't need to be doing six different things while you're driving. I didn't want my daughter distracted while driving. All she had to do was put the address in and just follow the turn by turn directions. I went with this because it's very much like my XL325 but with the larger screen. The life time maps makes it a plus. My daughter loves it.
