I just used this GPS on a 5,000 mile trip through eastern Canada and the United States and have very mixed feelings about it. When it is working it is a marvellous device; the lane indicator function is especially valuable. The screen is clear and it is relatively easy to program. The estimated time of arrival was usually pretty accurate. The problem is that this Nuvi did not always work well. It turned itself off frequently for no particular reason. There were whole days when it could not locate a satellite. Sometimes the directions were to places I had never requested and sometimes (particularly when starting a trip) the directions were not the most efficient. Some of the sites under "shopping" no longer existed. The end result of all this is that I was always suspicious of the directions I was given and the trip, as a result, was more stressful than it should have been.
