I personally have loved this product. While on the road, this device accurately responds on every turn. The map, though not as big as I would I have liked it still offers readability in sunlight while a pleasant-sounding voice provides easy to understand instructions. The StreetPilot i3 is a good choice for first-time GPS buyers looking to get accurate directions while on the go. I would definitely recommend this product (read more)

Waste of time and money, it may be cheap but you get what you pay for, the wheel that you rotate to go up and down, has a PLASTIC cog on the inside and over time the teath on the cog become worn as they are Plastic!this makes the cursor not move or move in the wrong direction, very frustrating a cheaply made load of low grade plastic, save your money and put it towards a more capable satnav.

I've commented on another reviewers with regards to this i3 but in general you'll find it a tedious thing to use. Journey route is crazy most of the time so get as close to your destination as you can before listening to the directions. only recognises 5 digit post code so not accurate just on that alone, maps aren't up to date even after recieving an update disc from garmin free of charge which is very goods service, tho it came all the way from america and took 6 weeks! Lol. I take it... (read more)

I bought this cheap Garmin Streetpilot GPS as a shared gift between the people in my house. I didn't have much in the way of savings at the time I bought this as you can tell by the price of the model.
The Streetpilot i3 comes in a small box and seems far too small when you remove it from its packaging to be a good unit. It seemed to be complete truth that this unit was rubbish when I tried it for the first time on the night I got the unit. Why? It gave directions like this: "In point 3... (read more)

I bought a Garmin Streetpilot i3 in August 2006. Whilst it worked it was brilliant, but 6 months later it started nagging me about updating the map, which I ignored, since from year to year, not that much changes where I live. From then on it stopped "recognizing" the destinations I entered, making it practically useless. So to keep it working you have to pay $80 (USD) every year to update the map. Not a fact that was drawn to my attention anywhere, in the print nor by the seller. (read more)

The Garmin Streetpilot i3 is great value for money and pretty well always gets you where you want to go, no dead ends or wrong ways encountered yet.

If you want a Sat Nav and don't want to pay an arm and a leg this Garmin Streetpilot i3 is ideal. It is dead easy to use, usually gets you to your destination with no problems, though it has confused me with odd directions once!
I have had speed trap warnings downloaded on mine, it warns as you approach a camera, then warns you again if you are going over the limit. Very useful!
The instructions are clearly spoken in your chosen language, the map is small but easily visible in day or... (read more)

I think this Garmin StreetPilot i3 GPS Receiver is an excellent little gem! It was only £130, a third of the price of most Sat Navs. I take it everywhere and it's so small I can fit it in my bag, so I do not risk having it stolen from my car. Sadly you can't download celebrity voices like the TomTom but I think you would get fed-up of Sven guiding you to Wembely after a while!! It's great! I would recommend it to anyone! (read more)
