I suspect that Garmin relies on a central database for maps, attractions, etc. etc. As with previous models, it is always outdated.
The interface is not very intuitive.
Updating maps is not free for a lifetime. Updating software has resulted in maps for Ontario, Canada, being locked and inaccessible
It is is so slow to indicate directions that they are not displayed until after making a turn. An earlier model was faster and more accurate.
There has to be a fully functional and reliable GPS system available somewhere!!.
Ilike this garmin , but the traffic is not accurate ,bluetooth doesn't work in everyphone ,and when it works caller id and phone book sometime it works sometime not .
speed limit indicator don't work in canada ,where i live .
ihave it for one month so far everything working fine .except what i mention above.
i hope garmin solve these probleme .
light and good size.
good volume level.
sufficient information of food/hotel/attractions.
