GET LOST. . .or DON'T !
Pros: Easy setup, seamless PDA integration, Bluetooth, small receiver, excellent battery charge time, clean functional GUI,
Cons: Maps are not 100% accurate, sometimes it resets my TREO 650
A reliable GPS navigation package with Bluetooth connectivity to PDA. Perfect for managing a modern-day mobile sales team/territory. Would be perfect if I could edit/update maps. Read More at Epinions.com

I Love This Product... sort of.
Pros: Great rerouting features, intuitive interface
Cons: LAME "fastest route" calculations
Buy this product but be sure bring along your usual maps and always look at the route it calculates to make sure that it makes sense. Read More at Epinions.com

Works well, but with SEVERELY OUTDATED maps
Pros: Easy to install, works well.
Cons: Outdated maps. It seems there's no history of "map update" on their site.

Great, if it has the correct address for your destination
Pros: Gets you where you need to go, if it has the correct address.
Cons: Frequently has incorrect address and takes you away from your destination
My final recommendation is to steer clear of this product. It has too many incorrect points of interest and cannot be relied upon for anything. Read More at Epinions.com
