Home Discussion Discuss: Factors responsible for GPS signal errors

    that it would take about 10 minutes to get a liaotcon/signal when turning it on after travelling great distances and found this to be true. I did find the same problem as other people- some of the newer roads were not on the map. But I still never got lost and that was great. You can save your hotel as a favorite address and never lose your way home. It was also great for finding gas stations, amusement parks, restaurants, etc. My 9 year old son loves to watch it and tell me what streets we have to turn on. I always know where I am, how far I have to go to the next turn, how far I have to go in my trip and what time I am expected to be there. Barring any traffic problems, I have found it to be very accurate. I shopped around at various stores testing out similar Garmin and Magellen models and kept coming back to this one. My husband is a skeptic and does not read directions. I showed him how to use this in 10 minutes. Now he uses it for his own trips (when I am not using it of course.) The portability makes it easy to take from one car to another. I bought a medium sized camera bag to store the unit in. I just detach the entire unit from the windshield and put it in the camera bag (still attached to the windshield mount.) This makes it easy to carry in and out of my house (I was told to avoid extreme temperatures to prevent damage to the LCD screen.) It also gives me the ability to put the bag in my trunk when leaving my car while in the city. I have been using this unit daily since I got it for Christmas (4 months ago). I have found the windshield mount to be quite easy, convenient and stable. On only 2 occassions, the unit could not locate an address, one of which was a 10 year old house, and had to use MapQuest as back up. Overall, I think this unit is great and have recommended it to many people. I can't imagine how I did this job without this unit! This is mandatory equipment for anyone who spends a lot of time on the road.
