I was so excited to get my GPS. I had been wanting and needing one for a long time now. This unit has good and bad qualities as I'm sure they all do. In the end it always gets me where I need to go, so it absolutly serves its purpose. Price was a key factor when making my decision and it is an affordable choice especially for those of you who are looking to have a gps for those once in awhile times. Lets me honest there is nothing worse then being lost and having to ask for directions or try and read a map. There are two things i do not like about this system. one is the volume, even when I have the volume turned all the way up I have to turn the radio down to hear what the directions are. My second complaint is that it does not have an option to save the route. Other then these two things I love my GPS and sometimes wonder how I ever got anywhere without it.

What you say is useful but a bit more detail might be helpful. Cost, size,choice of voices, easy of loading maps, accuracy of routes etc
