Really? I've had mine since they 1st came out and love it.
Miami is pretty congested and it works here, it can accept an external amp antenna for even better performance.
Upgraded to version 7 city select recently. Ebay has good deals on refurbed ones with V7 maps and car kit.
I Even have it rigged for the bike but it's not waterproof. The other thing is that it needs external power to stay on constantly or it will go into stand by. No big deal cause it will come on for a turn but I rigged external power. It's in another thread around here- I'll look.
If I had to replace it, I'd get the pocket pc/ garmin m4, preloaded with detail maps, 3d or 2d maps, bigger icons for use with fingers.
Love the ability to drag the map and zoom quickly, easy to use....
I also have a garmin etrex vista cx (color) accepts micro cards for detail maps, waterproof but small. Does routing so it works fine.
Both happen to be real close to Ti color as well- happy coincidence.
