Bluetooth hands-free calling
Spoken street names Commonly referred to as "Text-to-Speech," this helpful feature is the ability to pronounce proper street names. For example, a system with this feature would say, "Turn right on Truman Avenue" rather than, "Turn right in 500 feet." Spoken street names allows the driver to confirm directions with street signs without looking at the screen.
A good GPS but will confuse someone that doesn't realize the GPS is giving incorrect directions due to highway changes that aren't known to the device's onboard map. This justifies a map update but there are none for this device. Their website only offers a $99 update for European maps and none for the US. Odd thing is the European map can only be downloaded in the US or CA. ??!?? That's your lifetime map, the one that came with the GPS.

Sometimes Lags is an understatement
Easy To Set Up
Lags Even When Typing
Short Battery Life
Bought this for my wife. We used it for one day. The lag is very frustrating, both my wife and I hated it! We are taking it back after one day.
