A great concept in its second generation
Pros: Awesome concept, great execution, seamless radio/GPS interface.
Cons: Legendary Garmin crappy GPS reception. Little memory for custom maps.
A good buy, and a good concept if it serves your needs. A separate purchase might be more practical for most. Read More at Epinions.com

One powerful tool
Pros: Loads of features, compact size, PC upgradeable maps, peer-to-peer positioning, battery life
Cons: Clumsy radio features, bulky 3rd battery location
If you are looking for the best marriage of GPS and radio tools created (to date), look no further. For just about $200, this GPS/radio is an incredible bargain. Read More at Epinions.com
