I chose this GPS because it was the brand of one I had in the past, which was stolen from my car. I was frustrated not to see any set-up instructions, but figured it out. However, when it said that I needed direct sunlight to operate, I was even more frustrated. I frequently travel at night, plus, I wanted to put in addresses ahead of time, but couldn't do it from inside my home. When the temperature outside is 110 degrees, no one wants to go stand in the sun
I liked my old Tom Tom and this one had all the same easy to use features, however the mapping was out of date. On my first trip south on Indiana 31 to Indy, it could not find the exit. Once I got off it took me to the neighborhood, but not the exact house. The next trip it routed me to a closed road under construction. I drove further east and it got me to my destination. The next trip it took me south instead of north, got me on the interstate and proceeded to command me to turn right in 80 yards many times before it went dead. the two hour trip took me 3 hours. Someone is going to get a Tom Tom at Goodwill.
The battery drained faster than it charged so it would turn off en route. The time setting kept resetting and would not keep the correct time. They refunded me a portion of what I paid. I guess it costs a lot of money to document selling things to people that don't work. I would never buy from here again!
First, I was surprised at how old the technology was as evidenced by the "mini" USB charging connector vs micro or type C in common use today. The price point of nearly $50 was high for such old technology. Second, the unit did not work right out of the box. It came on but had no maps loaded onto it. When I tried to get online to load maps it refused to connect regardless of what I tried. The only positive thing I can say is that the outlet store issued and immediate refund with no hassle. That was a pleasant surprise.
