I received this GPS for Christmas when I was in College years ago when they were getting popular! I loved having it because I could go anywhere needed to freely without wasting ink and paper printing out directions from an online source. For the most part this Garmen GPS does what it is made to do! It finds routes, etc! However, finding your location once you turn it on takes forever - sometimes a good 15 minutes. I personally do not want to sit in my driveway for 15 minutes waiting for it to find where I am to give me my route. It takes much longer than other GPSs I've used. My husband has a TOM TOM and it doesn't take that long at all. The machine is also incredibly bulky compared to what you can buy now - they are slimmer and the screens are bigger. The directions we've been given from this machine have also been bad at times - taking us into dirt roads and people's driveways (in the middle of no where)!
