Comment:
One of my main reasons for getting a GPS unit was the handsfree mobile phone capability. Unfortunately, This GPS unit does not connect to my Smartphone (Samasung SGH-T959 Vibrant). When I purchased it, there was no notice given that the unit only works with selected mobile phones. Worse is that it took some time and a call to the support line to find this out as it would sometimes connect and then would not.<br /><br />Also, the method of entering an address has been changed and is very cumbersome. It assumes that you are looking for an address nearby and the way to enter the correct city and state is not obvious.<br /><br />I am also very disaapointed with Garmin. The two units I had before this one both failed within 6 months of purchase.
How long have you owned it:
One-to-three months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
