Comment:
The problem with this unit is systemmic with Garmin, namely antiquated software. I use the gas prices feature a lot and this unit insists on pointing me to gas stations 5 miles behind me even when I am on a designated route. No trip planner capability. No waypoints. The weather radar is very useful. The stacked and nested user interface is frustrating and non-intuitive. I'm looking for another GPS.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
