Excellent Device If You Don't Upgrade Map, Jan. 29 2010
When I bought the device it was out of stock on Amazon. But Amazon did a good a job to fill my order quickly.
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.
