I've had mine since middle of August. I'll starte with the issues. In that time I've experienced the glitches mentioned elsewhere, but not enough to give up on it. I had 2 hard resets with data loss (static electricity I now realize), many soft resets with no data loss (mostly when syncing), a few times the speaker noise problem (soft reset fixed), and short battery life when power isn't nearby. That's most of the bad, and most of this is fixed with v2 of the software now available on Garmins downloads site. Since the sw upgrade to v2, no hard or soft resets, no lost communications on syncs anymore. I've loaded many new applets and none of them have given me any problems. Be SURE not to use any that aren't specific for OS5! What's great? - the screen is better than anything i've seen, more bright, more resolution, and is worth the tradeoff in battery life - the speed, fast processor to speed autorouting makes it fast for everything else, too - the integration...
I installed the software per the user's guide and used it on the first day I got it (12/23/03). My wife was driving and I was reading about it in the car. I had the GPS on and was amazed at how the map moved (Track up mode) as we moved. It was accurate re: driving speed, location, odometer, etc. Then I tried the Que Route mode and tried reaching a destination. The thing kept saying "Off Route, recalculating" over, and over, and over again. I was pissed! Then I read some reviews and learned that I had to go to the Garmin website ([...]) to download "release 2" and "release 2 patch 1." After following the detailed instructions and re-trying the Que route, the navigation was perfect. No problems whatsoever. The unit is occasionally inaccurate as to street addresses, and is better with known intersections (gets you there within 10 feet accuracy). Some street addresses were right on the money, but others were a few houses off. Overall, however, it's...
I have been awaiting the release of this unit for a long time. I even sold my Streetpilot III to buy this so that I could integrate my PDA with GPS. You have heard all the positives, here are my list of negatives: 1. The biggest disappointment is that there are a LOT of addresses that cannot be found by a simple search. I have not been able to find some very popular roads. Yet, when you zoom in on that road manually, there it is, name and all. That is bad, bad, bad. That MUST be fixed on this unit. With my job, there are many times I go to an address or street I have never been to before, so I cannot manually go there by the map. I need the unit to find it for me and send me there. 2.You have to use your fingernail to open the GPS antenna. The hole is too small to even use my pinky to open it. 3. The stylus is very hard to remove. I have to pry it out with my fingernails, as well. 4. In many instances, you have to save a POI or address that you enter as a waypoint...
