My Garmin Pilot has the female voice, so is named Jill. While vacationing we used her to get us from Phoenix, AZ to the Grand Canyon then Las Vegas. With a lot of night driving, she made the trip comfortable and not so scary in the mountains. I use her all the time, locally and traveling to other cities. It's funny, now I ask for specific address to new location instead of visual keys (ie a restaurant, gas station, etc). Garmin also is capable of accepting downloads from Mapquest. I haven't personally done this yet but will for my next big trip. I drive an Altima and she fits perfectly in the space provided for their permanent GPS system. The viewer is big enough with no glare problems, and volume works just fine. Upgrading POI and maps took a little patience. The software took a while but it may have been my internet connection. Thanks Garmin, no more arguments with the boyfriend about asking for directions!!!!
