Wide screen and easy to understand icons. Easy to set up. Screen suction holder is easy to fit and remove.
Maps badly out of date. Verbal instructions do not always match road. Does not always use the right road.
I have seen more of rural Perthshire than I really wanted since installing the Garmin n vi 610T. When set to "quickest" route it has taken me down roads that are little more than paved farm tracks, which are definitely not quick unless you want to risk meeting something head on. On several occasions The Garmin Nuvi 610T has misrouted because of changes in the road some of which have been in place for a number of years. I have also had the problem at a multiple offset junction where the instruction has not be given soon enough to make the turn, which is odd because it works fine on other offset junctions. Fortunately if you take a wrong turn it keeps recalculating until it gets you back on the right route. Radar warning info can be downloaded, free for 90 days, then for an annual fee. I use Garmin Sat Nav on a boat and have always found it to be excellent, although not intuitive to use from a users perspective, but I would definitely NOT recommend the Nuvi 610T.
