This unit functions well, but you still need to keep an eye on the map a little. This only because it wants to be as accurate with the streets as possible. Ex: while entering the 610 S ramp, it said "Enter 290 ramp south". While this is technically correct (that ramp actually comes from 290 and goes to 610), all the other street signage only mentions 610 S! I understand this kind of issues easier than my wife, but she would be confused. Nevertheless, it got me out of some situations easier and faster than if I would not have it. Overall, I shoped around a little and I found this a good buy for the price.
