1.0 out of 5 stars Works perfectly with one major flaw Dec 12 2010
By Michael
I recently purchased this product. It works wonderfully and is an excellent Garmin product. However, this particular item does not come shipped with Canadian maps and therefore is relatively useless to Canadian residents. The product contains maps of USA only.

Keep this in mind when considering purchasing this item.

1.0 out of 5 stars Inconvient Dec 28 2010
By Joanne
There should of been some indication from Amazon that this GPS has no Canadian maps. When I called Garimen they were shocked that Amazon."CA" was even selling it.

I returned it as it was of no use to me.

1.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't work in Canada without additional costs Dec 28 2010
Please add something to the title to indicate that this GPS does not contain Canadian maps. Its in description but easy to miss. Can't use this product in Canada unless I'm willing to BUY Canadian maps which basically doubles the price. Buyer beware!

1.0 out of 5 stars No Canada maps Dec 28 2010
By user659
Verified Purchase
The unit may be fine but I naturally assumed that when amazon.ca was selling it, it would have
the Canadian Maps included. It didn't. You have to pay another $60 to download them.

1.0 out of 5 stars WTF? Dec 28 2010
By Clint
Hope you're not Canadian if you buy this because there's no Canadian maps on it. So I have to spend an extra $60+ to buy the map I thought it came with. If I knew it didn't come with the only map I wanted then I wouldn't have bought it.

1.0 out of 5 stars US maps only
Great price but it comes loaded with US maps only which is not much good here, in Canada. You can add maps but it's cheaper to just buy one that is preloaded with Canadian maps.
