Without this GPS road trips would be a lot harder. I got this as a gift because I was still using maps for directions. This device allows me to focus more on the road and the voices I can download for it are amusing. The restaurant and gas location features make finding food and filling up a lot easier to find when I am away from home. I like how easy it is to use because I am not the best with electronic devices. I love the daylight and night options because it makes it easy to see the GPS regardless of what time of day I am traveling. The only thing I don't like about i is that the battery life is horrible. I would be uncomfortable traveling far unless I had my battery charger with me.
