Love my Garmin and have no idea how I lived without it before! I received the Garmin as a gift because my husband told me that I got lost too often when I went out town so it was a much needed present. I cannot say enough good things about my GPS and it's features. I find that the Garmin is very user friendly and easy to navigate through. A few great features about this particular model is that it says street names when turning instead of just using turn in 800 ft, it has options to choose food, gas, banking, entertainment, parking, and several other features. This model also has a MP3 built in so I can download songs to listen too. I have found that the directions are typically spot on and easy to follow and understand. I love the interactive map and being able to see what roads and streets are coming up or on my way of travel. One thing that I wish was different about Garmin not the GPS is that you didn't have to buy the updated maps each year, as they cost about a fourth of what I paid for the GPS. Overall I love my Garmin and no longer feel lost and helpless on the road!
