    Useful GPS Tool

    In purchasing the Garmin - Drive 61, I really noticed that this product is very user-friendly and easy to follow directions. The voice activation is clear and not annoying like some GPS's that are on the market. I also like the fact that the display screen is large enough but does not take up a great deal of space on my window when driving. In addition, the maps are easy to follow and I never had an issue with directions when using this GPS by Garmin. I also appreciate the pictures of the street signs which makes locating where you are going easier. Would highly recommend to others.

    Excellent Graphics, but not so intuitive

    This Garmin GPS is fast to plan, or replan; and it is so easily readable, but it takes more keystrokes to program than my old, no longer supported, Tom Tom. And the Garmin display does not have current time, nor total distance to destination. Maybe I can adjust settings to include those values; I think they're "nice to have"s. Not a "deal breaker", but definitely a little disappointing.

    Bought this GPS to replace an old TomTom that my wife uses. This is definitely much quicker at calculating and finding a signal/location. A little disappointed I didn't see that the traffic cable wasn't included. The connection to the phone works but is a bit tricky. I ended up buying the power cable instead of sending this back.

    I was not satisfied with this GPS. I returned it. I think I did not like it because I was familiar with the TomTom GPS. The first time I tried using it, I took me though town on narrow little streets that I would not normally drive on. Also the route it took me on was way out of the way. Personally, I did not like it.

    We needed a new GPS and purchased this because of the screen size. The traffic updates are a joke. You need to connect to your phone or purchase an additional power cord for $70.00.
