Christmas 2009, I received a Garmin Nuvi from my wife. It has been a huge disappointment !! I have a long list of problems from it, including:
1. It takes too long to reactivate after being shut off.
2. It cannot find many addresses that we put in.
3. In Winnipeg, it could not find restaurants such as Olive Garden and the Keg or sporting good stores such as Cabela's.
4. In Great Falls MT, it had us turn the opposite direction for the Comfort Inn.
5. It could not find Cabela's in Spokane WA....a store that has been there for 5 years.
6. We were driving on a major divided freeway which did not show up at all on the GPS.
7. Poor volume control and mournful voice giving directions !!
Presently, I have set the new machine aside and put a private mapping software system in my old machine which brings back in line all western Canadian roads.
I wish Garmin would take a hard look at the accuracy and usability of their new Garmins.
The device is excellent on the road, very responsive. The FM traffic information also works but not entirely accurate. Google map on my BlackBerry shows more accurate traffic status.
I'll rate this device as 5 star if not because of its painful map upgrade.
I need download a 2gig file from their web site and it takes hours...that's not a big deal. Then I open the file and run it, it take forever to install the software into my computer. Moreover, the device got a very slow USB port so the file tranfer file from PC to GPS also takes forever. So you get 3 times of forever...just be alarted if you want to update the map. I didn't find much difference between the new map and the factory loaded file, I guess you better off and leave the orignal map there.
I can't help to notice another small problem as a designer - the surface of this devce is too smooth to hold. I already drop the device several times. Now since it's permenently stay on its car hold, I think it's fine now.
I had the updated OS version
I used this GPS to drive from Vancouver Airport using the fastest path feature and it leaded me to a 30 Km longer route, that most of it has limited speeds to 45 Km/Hr , there was many urban and streets that were not updated , there were many accidents in the way that had long traffic jam and the GPS was showing green Icon. in one of junctions it was not clear a bout the exit and it caused me to miss the exit and drive 40 Km with no exits , it was a bad experience in a very critical time that caused missing my appointment.
i used the shortest path feature , and it drove me to longer paths
it was directing me to drive in a wrong way in a one way street and i was a bout to get a ticket from the police officer.
all the above incidents were according the database and maps updates and has nothing to do with this specific model.
I found this GPS very very useful when it works as it supposed to.
the speakers for the phone are not that great quality, but it is better than nothing.
