Spotlight customer reviews:
Customer Rating: Summary: PRICE?????? Comment: I think it's high time Garmin really started to re-visit their pricing strategy. I went through numerous versions of Garmin products this week in so many shops and understood I clear notion - They are OVER-PRICED, period and basically "milking" the consumers.
An year back, Garmin was the way to go, too few alternatives, etc. Today, we're inundated with options and much, much cheaper flavors are available offering SAME and MUCH enhanced set of features and options.
The 2 reasons why it's still selling ? People are USED TO Garmin, they had trusted it, it's good and realiable. I agree ABSOLUTELY to that. So, they want to buy the 2nd. Garmin, 3rd., 4th. As it is most widely used, we tend to receive from our well-wishers the known statement - "You want a GPS, go for Garmin, I have it, it's damn good"... Agreed. But, the core question - at what cost!!???
The 2nd. reason is the user interface, definitely very welcomed and nice. But these days there are numerous who are actively coming up the curve and there (in terms of usability) and with MORE features. Thus, again, it's just vanilla HISTORICAL and HYPE. What's Garmin doing ???? Keeping the price same, basically milking customers. Why?
It uses Navteq. It's software (mapping) is an ALREADY developed product, now only enhancements are done. If an alternative company gives Navteq maps at a much lesser price, Garmin definitely can too. What they are doing instead, is adding a PREMIUM PROFIT on top of it.
It's I think important for all to start seriously look at alternatives prior to purchasing this product.
I am PURPOSELY not stating ANY alternatives, since it would mean I am marketing them... just look around. You'll find many. At this price, one can get a 4.3" + traffic + bluetooth + case + charger + maps (DVD)!! Customer Rating: Summary: Nuvi 650 Comment: Technology is amazing. Very intuitive to operate-if you can do simple windows stuff, you can do this! Customer Rating: Summary: Exceptional littel device Comment: Bought this istead of the 750. Wanted voice to speak street names. It's extremely compact. I have a built in state of the art navi in my AcuraTl, but this one is almost as good. I bought it for the portability. It's extremely accurate, and would highly recommend it for anyone that wants a real quality system. Customer Rating: Summary: Garmin nuvi 650 GPS Comment: Great product. Helped keep peace in the car during a trip from SF to Grand Caynon. Easy to use and great features. Already recommended to several friends. Only con is need to check the route as we ended up on back roads for 15 miles when we could going down another couple of freeway exits and caught a multi-lane highway. Customer Rating: Summary: Garmin Nuvi 650 Comment: I rated the Nuvi 650 as 3 stars because it should display more information on screen.
Direction isn't displayed when in the "goto" mode. I would also like to see an altitude function. It comes on automatically when the car is started. I don't always want it on so it should require a manual startup. There should be a way to alter the route other than just "fastest" or "shortest". We don't always want the route it chooses. Photos display very slow. Would like to see optional zip code entry in addition to state, city when searching for addresses.
Otherwise a very good product. I like the Streetpilot 7200 if you have the room. It's big.
