General Comments
I've had Garmin Quest for about a year now (always wanted one..) I have to say I've only used it about 10 times but put it like this, I've thrown all my maps away. It's extremely good - I had to drive to the middle of nowhere (well, almost) last weekend with a mate in the car and he was gobsmacked at how well it picked the route and guided us right to the door. I've even used it on my motorcycle (twice - with RAM mount) and it was even more useful given that it's far harder to mapread on a bike.

Compared to the built in (manufactured) one in my Mazda it's far quicker and more accurate IMO.

My only gripe is not being able to input a postcode ot search for an address on the unit itself - you can do it on the PC software and download it, but I dont like the PC software, it's awkward, clumsy and not intuitive at all - far far easier to use the unit for everything (in fact I've only ever hooked it up to the PC once...that was enough)
