Dissatisfied

By Fuzzy John from Howell, NJ on 11/26/2008


Pros:

Quick Gps Fix, Nice Screen

Cons:

Software Updates, Speed, Did Not Meet Expectations

Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

The screen is beautiful. It uses small fonts but they are clearly readable at doy or night. The unit gets a quick GPS fix after being turned on. The power switch is in an inconvenient location which requires you to remove the unit from its windshield mount if you forgot to turn on the "Mains". Once running, the position indicated on the display lags compared with the actual position. The lag seems to increase with speed. At 50 mph the lag is about a little more than 1 city block (2 to 3 seconds). This lag make it very easy for you to miss turns. There are a couple of software updates but they and what they do is somewhat confusing. Customer Support did not clarify. I installed one of the updates, which seemed to be the latest one. This brought to life a major shortcoming: all my favorites were erased. There was no warning when I applied the update that this may happen. This GPS has no way of saving your favorites. I had to spend a few hours re-entering them. After I applied the update the software version indicated by the GPS unit changed but it was not the version indicated at the Panasonic site where I downloaded the update. The lag indicated above is still present. The quality and level of the sound when using a bluetooth cell phone is below expectations.

Pros:

Easy To Use, Convenient

Inaccurate Map, Expensive, Poor Documentation

An a little bit difficult usage and inaccurate software characterize the product. He works slowly. Can be seen, and audible.

Driving will never be the same !

By dododo from Almelo, Netherlands, EUROPE. on 11/02/2008


Pros:

Exceeded Expectations, Easy To Use, Multi-tasking Functionality, Handsfree-phone-use

Cons:

Map-updates Not Available

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I now have almost a year of experience with Panasonics CN-GP50TC and I'm very satisfied with its capabilities. Nevertheless I'm still awaiting its FIRST update in MAPS, because I live in the proximity of a motorway which is not shown on my *STRADA*. Yet it's the best navigator, with good speedcam-detection, with traffic-updates and reroutings and with a handsfree-fuction for my mobile phone (KRZR-K1). Updates for software are OK when you follow the directions of the PDF-manual strictly. I'm no computer-wizzard, and yet the software updates run smoothly. All-in-all a certain and positive recommandation !! dododo / NL / Europe.

Strada GPS

By Miles from Undisclosed on 10/20/2008


Pros:

Save Current Position

Cons:

Did Not Meet Expectations, Difficult To Use

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I recently used the Strada on a trip to Mountain View, CA. It did not seem to have any many points of interest in its database. On another search, I had to expand the area of search several times so it could find the San Jose International Airport. The touch screen is not as sensitive or responsive as I would like, but overall I would suggest that this is an okay GPS. I do like the feature that allows me to save the current position, that was great, although sometimes it would not let me do that. This great feature is hidden a couple of menus in. The computerized voice is.. well, a computerized voice, really mangling some words. I received a major discount when purchasing this GPS because I bought a new Panasonic Viera TV, but I wouldn't have paid full price for it knowing what I know now....
