Voted 3/5

This is an over all good GPS. When I bought it about 4 years ago, it was still somewhat new on the market.I am rating it a three star because of several reason's.first their are newer model's on the market that are smaller with a with much more advanced feutures and storage compasity.Second, I have at late been having problem's with the unit shutting off just after starting it, even after replacing the battrie's.I have only had this problem for the last year. At the time that I purchased this GPS I would have rated it with five star's.
