Definitely worth the money, but a few problems
Pros: It is a wonderful tool to maneuver through congested cities.
Cons: New streets not updated enough and rural areas sketchy.
It's worth the money despite the minor frustrations. Even though the directions may be off sometimes, it's great peace of mind to know you aren't truly lost. Read More at Epinions.com
