It is easy to use a dedicated gps navigator. There are lifetime maps of the U.S. only. The external memory storage device is compatible with Windows and Mac OS X. Li-ion battery type-rechargeable. The battery life can be up to an hour. Driver warnings for dangerous curves, speed changes, speed cameras, railroad crossing, animal crossing and more. 480 x 272 is the display resolution. Hotels, restaurants, and attractions have ratings on the website. The guides use recognizable landmarks, buildings and traffic lights.
👤We just returned from a trip through Canada and the Rockies and it worked out great. Updating a gps right out of the box is the most important thing to know. When you purchase a new or certified unit, it's always back level. Many of the less reviews are due to needing updates. The updates are for more than maps. They are critical for the gps operating systems. There are 9 gps software updates and a huge map update in this one. The keys to success are the updates and not the brand name. Hope this is useful.
👤Previously owned a nvi. When theusb connection died, I had to replace it. I decided to try this model of the gps because I was very satisfied with the Nuvi 40. It is garbage. In more rural places, the drive 51 is often incorrect in telling you when to turn. The unit doesn't identify turns until you are near an intersection. I was constantly sent to unpaved road despite the unit being set to avoid it. The unit makes you drive in a circle before you get to the road you need. The touch screen is too sensitive and you need to head back to the correct screen a lot. You can't just use an old car's oldusb charging point when you need to charge other devices. You need to buy a different device. The garmin unit can't be plugged in until you are in gear, if the lighter sockets is behind the gear shift. They would have designed it to bend at 45 or 90 degrees. Whole towns that appear on printed maps are missing or mis identified. You should have a map with you at all times. It is difficult to change the route with this unit. There are other things that are not nice. If you will be traveling outside of developed areas, look for a different gps device. This unit is more of a hazard than a benefit to me. I don't like this unit.
👤We were quite disappointed when we bought this for my husband. Why was it a good idea to require a smart phone to get traffic updates? If I have to use my smart phone, I might as well use the maps on the internet. The cable to get the traffic updates is $60. I don't think the new and improved unit is a step forward, because my old unit gets traffic and no other app is needed. The traffic cable did not work. The nuvi 3590LMT-S packaging stated that the compatible traffic cable was the GMT 60. The unit in the 3590 box was the model I purchased. You wonder how the unit got in the wrong box, and if someone else's is also mixed up. We have to pay for shipping to return the cable and buy a new one. What a hassle!
👤I have had to go to Canada for a few appointments and this gps saves me a lot of worry. You don't have to pay for extra data to get directions on your phone, this is the gps for you. I had an older model of the device. The older versions ask if you want to turn off the tolls in an options menu. After you put in the address, this model will perform. "Do you want to continue or find an alternative route?" will be the question it will ask. The feature is there.
The navigator has smart features and an edge-to-edge display. Map updates of North America are included in the easy-to-use navigator. There are simple on-screen menus and maps that show 3-D buildings. Without using a phone, the traffic is ready to use right out of the box. Voice-activated and ability to pair with a compatible andGPS-enabled phone for hands-free calling, smart notifications and live traffic via the garmin drive app Voice-activated and ability to pair with a compatible andGPS-enabled phone for hands-free calling, smart notifications and live traffic via the garmin drive app
👤This device is used. I didn't know what to think when I ordered it, but once I got it, I was ready to use it. I plugged it into my computer and it said that it needed software updates and map updates that would take 3 hours to complete. I tried to run the updates multiple times but they would freeze up in about 20 minutes. I took a look at the device to make sure it was up to date. The home map of the device was not easy to change. I returned it because of the software/map update freezing. The seller,CTGINC, told me that they found it to be working well and that they would not charge me a restocking fee.
👤The package arrived on time. I tried to download updates, but they froze up. I tried four times, but they could not help me.
👤Can't tell if it's new or refurbished. It worked out fine. It was fully charged. It was updated quickly. I copied all my contacts when I was on my phone. I didn't have to put my destinations in manually because I loaded all my saved destinations from my RV's backup. I wouldn't load destinations from my older nuvi series. All my others show elevation, but not in a sub menu. My older nuvi 2555 did not have a weather radar. There aren't many buttons on the map screen. Everything but back and zoom requires two presses. Go to the menu first and then press un-mute. It's a pain when in traffic. Tell it to shut up or turn it on. The larger screen is nice.
👤The unit worked well and had no problems. The old style ends of theusb cables do not fit the gps Micro ends are needed on both ends. I told the seller that I would not have to send the gps because I already sent the 2 cables back. He wanted pictures and I wanted him to send a return label. Never heard from him again. The rating was 1 star seller. The gps is 5 stars. You will need to purchase a power cord in order to receive traffic updates. I have one. It was around $60 dollars. Should have sent it back to Amazon. I liked the way the gps worked. I only recommend the product. The return was started because the seller wouldn't replace the wrong cable. The seller is not even rated after the cancellation of the return. Dmd.
👤This is my most important companion because I make several road trips every year. It makes it easy to find destinations. It's helpful to know about potential traffic problems and detours. It is easy to use. I have a road atlas with me, as I am old school. Sometimes you need to use common sense and check your destination on a map. I highly recommend this to anyone who travels by car. It helps to find places you don't know about.
👤The big screen is like that. In route mode, the street name is not given before you make a right or left turn. Just turn right - turn left. The street name is displayed at the top of the screen. My others don't have that problem. They mention the street name before turning. Still like the unit.
There are options for portrait and landscape mode on the large RV navigator. The size and weight of your RV are taken into account to find the best route. Road warnings to keep you aware of steep grades, sharp curves, weight limits and more. There is a directory of RV parks and services on the website. Control with your voice, and enjoy hands-free calling, and built-in wi-fi for easy map and software updates without a computer. Pre-made street maps for North America have coverage of the U.S., Mexico, Canada, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. You need to download the Garmin Drive app for GPX file sharing and access to live traffic, weather and smartphone notifications. The magnetic mount with video-in port accessory is required for the third-party wired camera to see behind your vehicle.
👤I have been using the RV 760 for the last five years and bought this to replace it. The RV 890 is a big step forward. It's not just a bigger screen. The software has been greatly improved, the user interface is more intuitive, the touch screen is more responsive, and the voice recognition is better. The RV 760 had a smaller mount that would lose its grip in warm weather, but the windshield mount on this thing is a beast. The RV 890 has a bunch of new features, including the ability to use Foursquare, which is a big deal, not because I use it that much, but because their database contains many POIs that aren't in the Garmin database. The ability to plan, save and retrieve multiple routes in advance and the ability to modify the unit's suggested route are two of the best new features. It will take a while to try all the goodies. This upgrade was worthwhile.
👤I have a number of portable and built in gps units, as well as a phone, Ipad and laptop. The unit is easy to read and operate after a reasonable learning curve. I would knock it down form perfect for two reasons. The voice recognition doesn't always recognize my voice. The permanent base was used because the suction mount didn't work in my application. You can plan a trip with multiple stops and pick it up at any intermediate stop. The suggested rest stops are based on time and distance. It has lifetime maps, traffic, and the ability to program from your phone.
👤I have been trying to get maps for this device from Good Sam and RV trip apps. Do not spend money on this device because it does not work.
👤I replaced the rand McNally unit because it was old and not up to date. What a difference there is. It's much easier to use the device. I was a bit uneasy when I approached it. It leads me to what I want to do. Buy this one. I don't have any complaints. None at all. George W. Ensley is a FCC licensed tech.
👤I'm hoping I have a bad unit. I'm a fan of the company. After using it for about an hour, my unit failed. It will not turn on anymore. It's going back. The magnetic interface works fine with the 20mm ball packed in the suction cup mount. The magnetic mount requires a 20mm ball and the dash mount requires a 25mm ball. A really bad shipment. It looked new, but it was a bad shipment. I'll try again.
👤I sent it back after I used it for the first time. RV Life is on a designated tablet. I thought the RV 890 would be more user friendly. The RV 890 is a mid-grade device. I spent hours on the device trying to download something. Routes with no luck. As I searched online, I found that other people are having the same problem. Purchase a nice tablet, download the RV Life app, and save money. You will get a better user interface, online and offline mapping and run your favorite music apps. This is not worth more than $500. Sorry!
The gps navigator has connected features and a bright display. There are maps of North America with free lifetime updates. Use their mount to secure nvi to a mount. The package only includes a mount. Live traffic and Live parking are available when using the free link app on your compatible phone. This device is compatible with Windows and Mac OS X. There are voice-activated navigation and smart notifications. The battery life is up to an hour. The display is built in with built-in wi-fi for easy map and software updates.
👤I have never owned a worse gps. The screen is fast and responsive, but where it really matters is navigation, and this gps is terrible. I just drove from Chicago to Seattle after it had the latest maps updated, and I was amazed at how poor its navigation guidance was, and how full of errors it was. It tells me to take pointless detours. It tells me I am going the wrong way when I am not. I am sent on goose chases for restaurants that don't exist. I've owned many of the Garmin units over the years, but this one is a dud. It's important to know that the gps is not traffic aware out of the box. It wants to be connected to your phone. If I have a data connection on my phone, why would I use a gps device?
👤I don't know if it's a software problem, but the DriveSmart gives bad directions. When I tested it out on my drive back home, I was sent in an unnecessary loop when I needed to make a left turn. There was no complex about the road. I've tested it on the highways and it sends me to the back alleys. It doesn't give me many alternate routes. I have an older version of Nuvi that does not have this issue. The screen is touch responsive and has internet. I want it to give me accurate directions. I used my old Nuvi 57 again after putting the DriveSmart in my trunk. Hopefully this is a software issue and can be fixed with an update. I should have listened to the previous reviews on Amazon.
👤I was hoping that a gps unit would give me everything G***** Maps has to offer when I am out of cell range. This is very close. It does voice commands well. I used it in Death Valley and on remote gravel roads in West Virginia, and it had the back roads in it's database. I would use it for hiking if they would offer topo maps for it because the screen size is better than my handheld and the operator interface is nicer. The DriveSmart 51 needs a better route preview feature to let me confirm which route it has chosen for me to take. If I want to confirm the route, I have to enter the destination into both G**** Maps on my phone and into the DriveSmart 51, and if the miles distance is the same, I can review it on my phone. This is not good. If I wanted to go to this trouble, I would just cache a bunch of maps on my phone, but this is also a time and data killer when traveling as much as I do. Dumping the accessory and providing the traffic-receiving car charging would be two improvements I would make. The screen is hard on the eyes when placed too far away. A $20 vent holder works better than a $20 phone holder, but they should decrease the thickness of the unit to make it more phone-like to fit in a vent holder. I got a Bestrixs one that works perfectly.
It's easy to use a gps navigator. The maps are easy to see. alternate routes are suggested by the traffic company. Yes, the backup camera is compatible with BC 30 or BC 40. Voice activated and ability to pair with a compatible phone. Notable historic sites and the U.S national parks directory are part of the HISTORY network. Without a computer, built in wi-fi for map and software updates.
👤I used a cellphone as my primary navigation tool and purchased the DriveSmart 65. The cellphone navigation systems are great, but I didn't like the convenience of the stand-alone units. I didn't like the fact that the navigation apps weren't easy to see when I manually used the phone for a phone call. There are two more Unless you use a different app or download offline maps from the internet, there's no navigation when you don't have cellular coverage. There are 3 more I never found the offline maps to work for me, there was always a problem with resolution that I could not resolve. Offline mode was not always used to work in general. I tried some of the other free offline navigation apps, but they seemed to be behind in updates, and did not seem refined, leaving me with a slight but ever present apprehension in my mind. I didn't like the small screen size when in portrait mode, even though I had an iPhone Plus. There are five The navigation app on my cellphone ran in the background and was not visible to view. I didn't see all of the trip info functions that the vehicle navigators offered. The app navigators had the same trip info, but it was hard to see. The DriveSmart 65 was more expensive than the 55, but the extras screen real estate was worth a few extra dollars for me. It is hardware. The screen is beautiful! Great resolution and bright colors. The brightness is turned up all the way. The 6.9 inch is the perfect size for me since I like to have all of the trip data functions showing on the screen at all times while allowing for ample space for the map/ navigation which is the most important part. The screen seems to be made of glass, but I am not sure if it is scratch resistant. The frame has a minimal amount of bezel which adds to visual appeal but makes accidental touches easy when trying to adjust the postition/angle of the unit on the mount. The screen is responsive to touch and there is little lag navigating through the menus, as it should be for a device at this price point. The speaker is loud and clear. I don't know what processor is in the unit, but I hope it is an upgrade from last year's model. It is smart to get the best hardware within your means, especially if you plan on keeping the device for several years, to ensure it will be able to effectively run the software updates. I don't like the way the power cord plugs into the back of the device. It would be great if it was plugged into the side or bottom, because it would be easier to mount the device on a desk if the power cord was not sticking out. The mount is standard and works well for mounting on a window, but I have seen it fall off of a vehicle. I bought a friction dash mount from Garmin because it seems to work well for now. I can't state my findings because I haven't had the battery disconnected from a power source for that long. It is very easy to use the software. It seems that the years of production have allowed time for most bugs to be worked out. The high detail map option provides a lot of detail and is helpful in keeping the user oriented from a geographical perspective. When you zoom out with the intent to use it indefinitely, the unit will automatically zoom you back in to the default setting, even though it does not really want you to have full reign on the map. You can have phone notifications for email/text/etc to show on the unit if you sync your phone to it. The option to make and receive phone calls when you sync the device to your phone is available for those that may need it. The unit has the ability to update maps without a computer. After attempting to update the maps 4 times, I got error code each time and the device aborted the process. Maybe it is because my internet connection is not high-speed. It will be great to see if there is a similar issue among other people. The maps will have to be updated with a PC. Conclusions: The device performs well as expected. Excellent native route planning and accurate navigation. The screen is bright and high resolution. It's right in the sweet spot. I am not convinced that the features this unit offers are practical enough to justify the higher price. If the processor is better than last year's model, this is a good value. It was a factual decision. I don't have to use my phone as my main navigation when I have a stand-alone navigator. Happy with the purchase, even though I mentioned some things. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a navigator.
Easy to use dedicated gps navigator with bright display. There are lifetime maps of the U.S. Driver warnings for dangerous curves, speed changes, speed cameras and more. Hotels, restaurants, and attractions have ratings on the website. The guides use recognizable landmarks, buildings and traffic lights.
👤I can't review Easy to Use because I'm over 80. I had to call at least three times, but the customer service was great. I was patiently walked through my problem by each rep. There was a problem that had nothing to do with me and I was able to resolve it. I know how to use the gps. You would never know it was refurbished when I bought it at a very good price. I am very happy with the product and recommend it to anyone.
👤It wouldn't turn on after about 2 months, but it worked great for a while. The cheapest option at the post office was $11, and I had to pay shipping to return it.
👤The quality of this unit is brand new, and it may have been a LMT unit in the past. The unit performs as it should. The software was very easy to use and it came up to speed very quickly. It's easy to update software on my PC. It was an easy decision to buy because of the good price. There are a couple of things that are not nice. The unit protests when you try to charge it with a non-garmin cable. The unit senses a data cable. It's really hard. This isn't necessary. A confirmation button should be used. Why do I think this is annoying? The place where I mounted this device in my car is about 8 inches away from the 12V sockets. I don't need a lot of cable. The same thing happens when you run off of a 120V charge. It's double UGH. I tried different cables and chargers. The next thing to be annoyed is the LCD's polarization. Has anyone tried to look at the screen with sunglasses? TheGPS operates in a horizontal mode. Why do you polarize the display in the diagonal? My 8 year old does the same thing. I haven't seen a similar problem in every new car with a build in display. I couldn't give this unit less than 4 stars because of the good price.
👤I decided to try it instead of using one I borrowed from a friend because I received this right before my trip for work. I had a few wrong directions due to not hooking it up to my computer to download the lifetime maps, but overall it worked great and I ran into one spot where the gps didn't know there was a new road. It has no battery life. I will always use it in the car plugged in, so I'm not worried about that. The large screen on it is what makes me happy.
👤It's been over 100 days since I purchased this gps. After it was purchased, it was used on a trip to Virginia. It was used again last week and the wife was almost stranded. I requested a refund because the renewed unit didn't work and was denied because it was past the 90 day guarantee, so I'm going to have to fix this one again. I won't buy from the seller or a renewed unit again.
This product is a certified refurbished product. All original accessories are included with a 90 day warranty. The DriveSmart 65 Premium Navigator is compatible with the Amazon voice assistant. The bundle includes a Deco Gear Universal WeightedGPS navigation Dash-Mount, a Deco Gear Hard EVA Case with a Zipper for Tablets and aGPS. The box has something in it. The powerbot robot vacuum has a 90 day warranty. The box has something in it. The powerbot robot vacuum has a 90 day warranty.
👤I had to return it. It couldn't hold a connection to satellites. I usually arrived at my destination before satellites. I really liked it when it worked, but I couldn't rely on it. I had to use my phone gps because my satellite connection would suddenly stop working. I would like to be able to use an external antenna.
👤This is a good purchase. It looks great. This unit has a voice command and I like it. Say "OK" and it will listen to what you want to do. If you say "OK Garmin - go to 123 Main St", it will plot the course for you. It links to your phone. You can make calls, get calls, and it shows you any notifications you receive.
👤The navigation is fine. My wife and I gave up on the voice recognition because it was a joke. The unit refused to speak with one of the voices due to a corrupt voice file, but no error message was shown, it just didn't work. I was expecting better.
👤I had trouble setting it up. The touch screen is too sensitive and I have trouble changing modes because I got too close to the system. Even though the map software is up to date, I have had addresses that I couldn't enter.
👤So far, so good. Doesn't know fire numbers for addresses. The display and features are beautiful.
👤This is a very good gps and having a voice assistant like Amazon'sAlexa along with some of my favorite apps is a huge plus. The battery life is the only issue. When you consider that metro area trips can take a long time to go one way, it is a short amount of time. You have to keep it plugged in to charge almost all the time because the battery will drain in less than an hour.
👤The improvement over my previous device was great. The unit looks brand new to me. It automatically connects to my home internet whenever I pull into the garage, so I can check for and install updates before shutting off. The old days of attaching the gps to a PC have been greatly improved. It was great to work on several long trips and daily use around town. Very pleased with this unit.
👤The product seems to work for most of the time. Lexi is activated when I listen to the radio.
Detailed map updates of the United States and Canada are included in the easy-to-use 5”GPS navigator. Simple on-screen menus and maps. Road trip ready with The HISTORY Network of notable sites. Voice-activated and ability to pair with a compatible phone for hands-free calls. The HISTORY network of notable historic sites, a U.S. national parks directory, and millions of Foursquare points of interest are all included. There is a bundle included. The DriveSmart 52 has a vehicle mount, power cable, Documentation, and a hard EVA case.
👤I like the drive 52. Our new car doesn't have a navigation system and I used to use Onstar. I downloaded the instructions from the internet and found them very user friendly. I had several questions about the unit and they were answered quickly. I would definitely recommend this company. I received Prime service from Amazon within a week.
👤If you want to use a gps device, you should get this one. I had this up and running in no time at all. The map updates are easy, unlike my previous Magellan that took hours. I love it and will stay with it.
👤This is the new unit that died. This one is easy to use and works well. The lifetime map updates are a major benefit. The software and maps were updated. It took a while but it was easy. I can't get the route shaping feature to work correctly, that's one of the two downsides that I see at the moment. It adds loops and segments to the route when I try to get it to use a particular street. I didn't have this feature on my original unit so I'm used to not having it. I miss having interesting voices to choose from. There are only two American English voices. It's a good deal for the cost compared to the more expensive units.
👤The newer Garmin can be used with car play or an auto. I bought this as a backup, and it has map updates. It does what I wanted it to do.
👤This is the second device I have purchased. The first one died a long time ago. The case contained 2cables. One cable connected it to a computer. The other cable is for a cigarette lighter in a car, but the other end is too wide to fit the gps device. There was no A/C plug in cord. There is no way to charge the device or keep it running.
👤After the first use of this gps unit, I felt like I was in a bad place. It doesn't do a good job at voice recognition, it's not modeled for normal everyday speech. You can't search for a simple name and city with a search engine, you only get the results you want. This isn't the unit I need, it's a different one.
👤After updating maps and copying locations from my old device, the new gps wouldn't power on and was returned. This is a common problem according to reviews.
👤This was a smaller navigation device. I bought this. The larger screen was a plus. The road layout is correct. It works better than the GM product in my car. I will no longer use that one. I know I can rely on this one.
Know your surroundings. Road trips have gotten better with the help of TripAdvisor. Friendly guidance from a navigation device. You can find where you need to go. There are more to see and do with the service.
👤I would recommend buying this gps, but there are a few pros and cons. You will have to use a computer and internet to update the maps on the gps. The update only took 35 minutes to download and use. It may take longer, but how often are you going to update a gps? For most people, it's twice a year. Even though the listing says it is new, my gps came in a like new condition, as shown in the pictures I attached to the review. In the worst case scenario, you can easily return your gps. You should use a car charging station or a power adapter to power the gps. You can't charge using a computer since it's only for data sync. You can't use a cheap 5W power adapter, so make sure you use the correct method. The gps should be unplugged for 1-2 hours. It took me about an hour to charge using the power adapter I bought separately. The bundle includes a vehicle power cable, a shortusb cable, and a quick start manual. Unless you want a more portable solution, this is a good buy.
👤They claim that it works out of the box. It definitely does. 5 year old maps. They expect you to download the updates in order to install them on your PC. The map download takes 3.5 hours to download. You would think that when they refresh these junk devices that they would install the latest maps so that customers could plug and play instead of spending their day updating maps. The battery still reads nearly dead after 3.5 hours of being plugged in and charged. They sent me a battery that can't be charged. So little for refurbished! I don't think you should buy this product. You will have better luck if you buy a used one from a guy on the internet. If I'm going to be charged $85 for this product, the least they could do is send me what they promise which should include updated maps and a functional battery. They didn't give me a base for the mount, the little circular thing you stick to the window. I have to put the cup on the window so it won't fall down.
CUBE will ring if you press find and use the app to show last known location on a map. If you leave something behind, there is a separation alarm. Free lifetime map updates and Live traffic are included with the 5.0” truck navigator. Alert for upcoming Bridge heights, weight limits, and custom truck route for the size and weight of your truck. The display resolution is 480 x272. There is an easy break plan with notifications for breaks and road signs to suggest nearby restaurants. Truck stops by brand and amenities are included in the truck and trailer services directory. Control dzl with your voice, and enjoy built-in wi-fi and hands-free calling. This device is compatible with Windows and Mac OS X.
👤I dislike this device. Disappointed with the navigation. 1. The designated Class truck routes are not shown. 2. It doesn't show the bridge heights. I need these two items in my gps device. The information is on my maps. The reviews of the gps manufacturers were not as good as the reviews of the other manufacturers, and I believe that the information and technology is not available with any gps manufacturers. The database will be very successful if a product is created with it. The fit and finish is what I like. Thank you, but you are disappointed.
👤The features are great, the display is great, and the main part is great. The navigation on garmins is terrible. It will usually bring you a longer way even with the shortest route applied. In truck mode, even with the size of the vehicle entered, it brings you down a lot of dead end roads. There is no need to purchase a separate unit for the better maps. This may be the case in Maine and New Hampshire, but not in other states.
👤The gps works well. I like that you can set it up for doubles and triples, I also like that it works better with my phone, and that it's easy to use with my phone. So far, it is very accurate.
👤This is a good tool for drivers. I was going to be delayed by 2 hours in Idaho due to construction. I was routed around it. It will warn you about accidents, construction, objects in the road, and other things that have been reported to it. The speed limits in Montana are not correct. It shows 70mph for back highways and 65 for freeways, but it has a state border off by about 4 miles. It needs some map updates. It will show you the weather in your route. A gps is not a rule. Use common sense and always read highway signs.
👤I would like to see a version of the maps for commercial trucks. The only way I could use a gps device was with my phone. The product does not recognize new roads or buildings. There is nothing in the new warehouses according to Garmin. That's where the maps come in. In Phoenix AZ, a new stretch of loop 202 going south is open since December, but not for Garmin. I wanted to get on I55 North from Damen Ave but my new $300 gps said "No trucks", which is not true. The navigation system should be less than $75. It is important for Garmin to keep its maps up to date. I spent $300 and updated my maps to be able to find a warehouse that was built more than a year ago. I'm planning to return the gps because it's not very accurate. I'll check out a Rand Mcnally, hopefully it's better than the other one.
👤This gps has gotten me in trouble with taking me down places. If I worked days I would be screwed at times from using this gps sent me down roads with cars parked on both side in residential areas.
The navigator is easy to use. Menus and maps are easy to see. Notable historic sites and the U S National parks directory are included in the history database. The driver is helpful. Pre-made street maps for the U S and Canada were included in the map updates. Lifetime Map Upgrades are free. The Quick Start Manual was included.
👤I knew I was going to get a new product when I ordered this unit. They are new to me. Once they are proven to function for a few days, they will probably last a decade or more, or they will last until the new technology makes this unit boring. My cars have in-dash gps systems, but I use a different system when I go out. It works for me because I use the program. It's easy to plan a trip on my computer, and I like to save maps. I have a refurbished Nuvi 55. This is an old model. I bought this unit because it was cheap. I wanted to make my driving experience better. I like my new car. For the next 10 years, I will enjoy my new gps. It's a good thing. I don't use my real home address as "My Home" on my gps in case someone takes it. They will have my home address if they know I am not at home. I live at the nearest fire station address.
👤The gps works well. I just took it out of the box and plugged it in. I have never used a better gps device.
👤The box had a manual, a power cord that is long enough, and aGPS. As I am one of those who takes the manual and tosses it out the window, I put it on my weighted mount, plugged it in, and it already had enough satellites to function. I set a location and did a basic configuration. Initially it only showed the road name, but as I turned the numbers started to show up. I noticed that I had enabled a tracking function so I could see where I was. When I hit my first destination, I plugged my home address in and wanted to add Wal-mart to the trip, but I didn't know how to navigate the GUI yet. It was a done deal when I figured out how to do a multistop trip and I was at Wal-mart. The overall size of this gps is what I like the most. It is light and compact, and it was easy to put on my device pad for my dashboard. The photos show that it fits nicely on a pad for a 7" gps. The GUI is very confusing for an average user who doesn't know how to use it, unless you use the arrows on the left side of the screen, or have a very steady finger, and the legacyusb port is the biggest downfall of this gps. I like this gps because it serves its purpose, it is easy to use, and it is a referb so it won't end up as scrap. It was worth the money personally. I had to do a factory reset on the gps to fix some of the issues. It requires you to manually add your own route to circumvent the issue of it preferring major roads over anything else.
👤The Drive 52 unit is a replacement for the 1350 unit. I'd had Nuvi for a long time. This model is a big improvement, and it's smarter than the old one, and it's easy to use. A display with information can be tailored for your needs. Very nice.
