Buying Garmin? Caveat Emptor

By pj from Georgia on 09/22/2008


Cons:

Short Battery Life, Unreliable

Describe Yourself:

Enthusiast

Pros:

Compact, Easy To Set Up

Boating

How are you with directions:

Great W/directions

Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

If you're buying this unit, be aware that in 3 or 4 years, Garmin will cease to offer even simple repairs or service. Also understand that you are buying into a system and that charts will cost an additional $350 per region and can only be obtained from Garmin.I found this unit to be unreliable. It quit on me 80 miles from shore. When contacted, Garmin suggested that I download a "patch" for bad software. No one had endeavored to contact me despite the fact that the unit was registered and the had my email address.Garmin is living on past success, look elsewhere.
