Ease of Use

Works great....but allow time for map upgrade software to load to your PC and then GPS. It is a simple process...just takes some time to load. GPS works issues at all and is simple to navigate.

Solid device

on 2/22/2012

I bought the Garmin as a gift for my wife and was thrilled about the lifetime updates for traffic and maps. Setup and navigation is good. We like the big screen and the way the information is provided. The lifetime map updates sounds like a great feature. Maps can be updated four times a year and the access using the web page was easy. But I have to wonder what Garmin considers "useful life" of the device. But even if they are only available for three years, then it is still cheaper than buying the maps. The conditions of lifetime traffic updates are definitely not what I expected and the reason that I am thinking of returning the device. The ads that finance the lifetime traffic pop up on the screen and disrupt the navigation. This is obnoxious! This should be mentioned in the product description! I couldn't even find information about the ad financed traffic on the Garmin web page!
