5-0 out of 5 stars Truly amazing package!Try it for yourself
I have just used the product for 14 days.I can not describe how happy I am with the performance of this tiny little gadget.First of all, for all those people complaining about bluetooth or wi-fi connectivity, I think this pocket PC is more focused on being a GPS/Navigation system and all the additional stuff should be considered a bonus.Hands down, pricewise this is one of the top navigational systems out there.My brother bought the Microsoft Streets and Trips USB add-on which he attaches to his laptop, and I bought this Garmin unit.Trust me, this GPS is 10 times better, its all in one package, comes with EVERYTHING you would need to get set and get going.

Highlights:
-Points of interests: finds atms, movie theatres, restaurants (really really handy when you're out with family and need to drive to another restaurant)
-Integrated: comes with everything you need to be mobile; dashboard kit, windshield mount, desktop charger, etc
-great software: the MapSource is excellent.
-great design, good price compared to its GPS competition.
-voice prompts work great when you are driving and its a loud clear speaker voice telling you exactly where to turn.If you miss a turn, it automatically recalculates and tell you where to turn next.basically, its really really hard to get lost if you have this thing.This product will save you money and time if you are driving in inner-cities and have a hard time with directions (so true for me driving around NYC metro area especially long island)

If we were to compare it within the GPS/Navigation category, this product takes the hat, no doubt about it.Compared to the $700 magellan unit, this is slicker, easier to set up AND did i forget to mention its a full fledged pocket PC with MS Windows Mobile Edition OS.

Cons:
only comes with 64 mb of storage.Which isn't bad, and it will load up maps of almost an entire state.I live in Queens, and I'm able to load up NYC and half of long island for about 20 megs.So i guess its not really a con.

If you need an excellent GPS system, this is it.Just think of the pocket PC functions as a free additional bonus.

i have never written a review in my life but after using this product, I was so satisfied that I told all my friends to get it instead of getting a $2k navigational system installed and now i'm writing a review to tell others what they MUST try for themselves.

4-0 out of 5 stars First impression - mixed results
Setup was easy, I got the 1 gig SD card and loaded half the US, and still have 400 meg available for mp3, jpeg, other files.This is my first GPS, first PDA, and I've had it a week, so this is a preliminary review:

Pros:
pocket size
accessories all included
can see screen easily in daylight
PDA processor is fast
Voice recorder is cool
jacks for external antenna and speaker

Cons:
Long time to acquire satellites
Lost satellites several times
Manual is just ok
HAVE to buy the SD card ($100)

The speaker on the unit is not loud enough for navigation if there is any background noise, but the speaker on the power adapter is plenty good, plus there's an output jack for external speaker if needed.

I have a Toyota Tacoma truck, and lose signal a lot - may need the external antenna.If I put the unit all the way forward on the dash it acquires satellites in a minute, but on the windshield mount it can take 10 minutes.It also seems to take longer if the car is moving, so I just wait a minute before taking off.

The manual was aggravating - it comes with a quick setup guide that was easy and accurate, and an application guide for the navigator software, but the general instruction manual is on CD only - no paper copy!I had to print the 88-page pdf.

The unit froze once - had to reset, so I was glad to read the other reviews about the updates available from Garmin.

Screen resolution is half what other PDA's are, and I was concerned about that, but I really can't tell any difference - pictures look great, videos too, and the maps look like Magellan or any other.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great product!Almost a home run, but not quite...
I have had about a week to use the M5. My first impression is WOW.This IS my first GPS and also my first PDA, so take my review for what it's worth.I would love to give this product 5 stars, but I will get right to the point of why I can't do it.

CONS :
No 802.11b/g - Not a huge deal if you don't mind plugging a bluetooth USB adapter in your PC, but honestly it is a little annoying that I can't connect right up to my 802.11g network out of the box.There are SD/MMC 802.11b cards available that are a option, but I have not ordered one yet.

GPS non-responsive - (see *Edit* at bottom of this review) As one other reviewer also noted, I also had a GPS problem where it acted like it was looking for the satellites, but couldn't see any of them.This was outside, and not indoors.I pushed the reset button, and GPS fired up just fine.As with the other reviewer, I also haven't had this problem reoccur after about a week of using it.The initial problem was about an hour after I took it out of the box. Since then I have used it a good 20+ times without any problems.I will report back if this problem comes back!

The leather flip case(?) - It is a little lame, and offers no protection except for maybe screen...and even that's a stretch.

PROS -
Wow, I opened the box, and it was very complete. A nice windshield suction mount, cig adapter with speaker and the other 'standard' PDA items (cradle, USB cable, travel A/C adapter, etc).

It's a nice size, not to bulky.The battery seems to perform as expected.I don't have any exact #'s, but from what I could tell it was at least 4 hours with some GPS usage.

One thing I would like to comment on is the 'cost'.A lot of reviews elsewhere talked about how expensive this device is.Yes, it's not cheap, but try buying a comparable PDA and a GPS add-on. You'll be close to, if not higher than what you would pay for this fully integrated PDA/GPS.

I have taken one trip (74 miles each way).It did a pretty good job getting me to the destination.I did notice that it was a little slow to recalculate the route if you miss a turn (5-10 seconds on average). Not a huge deal, but could be a problem in inner-city driving. It also did a random "Make U-Turn" in the intersection I was turning at. I believe the intersection came up later than the GPS/mapping software was expecting. The estimated time of arrival is nice, and right on target!

GPS performance : The GPS picks up the satellites fine in my car.My house (2 story) it's fine on the second floor, but the first floor it does not pick up the satellites unless I move over to a window.

Storage - I don't own a memory card yet, but even with the built-in memory I was able to get most of middle-TN and North Atlanta.I hear a 2GB memory card will hold all of the US, and 1GB will hold over half the US.I would say that is about right.

That's about all I can think of at this time. I will report back in a few weeks with an update.At this point I am very pleased.

Edit 4/28/05 - I did have one additional lockup of the unit that required a 'reset', so I went to the Garmin website and found out that there was a new firmware revision. I loaded the firmware and so far the unit seems to be performing perfectly.So, for those who are having GPS lockup problems, download the firmware revision.Garmin states that the firmware fixes several lockup issues.

5-0 out of 5 stars A killer product
The Garmin ique m5 pocketpc/gps is a gadget lover's dream come
true. The price of a decent pocket pc from dell or hp would
easily run to $500. For $100 more than the price of a standard
pocket pc you get a WAAS enabled gps with bluetooth support.

The bundled software includes garmin map software for entire
united states and Microsoft outlook 2002.
Setup was easy. I was able to install the Map source software
without any problems. Garmin provides a usb based sync cable and
cradle. Since i own a Garmin GPSMap 60CS the user interface was
comfortable.


The automount is a second cradle which mounts on the windshield
via a suction cup. The suction cup mechanism was very sturdy and
stayed on for months without coming off. I did not find any problems with the mount unlike one previous reviewer.

Driving directions are provided via an external speaker
attached to the car charger. Sound was loud and clear.
The m5 has a built in speaker which has decent drive.
The battery looks to be of a replacable type. The device
comes with one slot for SD card. Onboard memory is around 60MB.
For $100 you could adda 1GB SD card and have the entire US maps loaded.

The map visibility depends a lot on the make of your car andthe angle of the windshield mount.
The map was clearly visible during daytime and nighttime.
I drive an Acura.The screen realestate is bigger than the Quest product. Outlook adresses, notes etc can be synched easily.


Entering addresses was a breeze using the stylus. The maps and
routing worked fine 98% of the time. Once in a while i had lost
satellite reception and had to reset the device. I think most of
these problems will be patched when Garmin comes out with a software update.

Couple of caveats...

The User interface is functional but lack friendliness.
Lots of concepts...like POI, Address, Locations which confuse the
user. This sofware needs to be reviewed by some usability
experts. Garmin folks ...are you listening...take a look at
IPod, google maps etc... complicated software but simpler interface.

The map sofware takes up 3GB on my HD. Think this is due to
incompatible map formats with other garmin products (60CS).
May not be a problem if you do not own other garmin products.

Pricing: This device needs to be priced under $500

2-0 out of 5 stars Buy if you want to be on the bleeding edge
I like garmin products.Seems support for this one is a bit dicey.

Pro's - It's a garmin.Most of their products are great, and their mapping software is good.

Con's - Bluetooth.Doesn't appear it works with much.Garmin tech support admits it doesn't work with any keyboard or headset.They don't admit to what it DOES work with.Seems they are relying on users to discover that.Documentation can be a bit sketchy too.Again, relying on users to find and report the bugs.If want to pay a lot for bleeding edge technology, this is it. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Idaho - Plenty of Detail
.
A lot of people have been complaining about the lack of detail on MapSource. Well, I've got a different story to tell.

MapSource Topo covers the entire USA in 3 CDs (West, East, AK/HI). When running the program, go to Edit/Preferences and move the "Map Detail" bar from middle to high. Dirt roads, trails, streams, lakes, and all contour lines are displayed. I live in Idaho and was able to evaluate the trails in Idaho. You can print maps with MapSource too. The software does say that the scale is like the 1:100000 USGS maps; maybe some folks didn't realize what this meant before they bought it. Learn the USGS scales before you buy and then you won't be surprised.

If you want a step-by-step map, then buy the USGS 1:24000 series paper maps. However, MapSource is sufficient; it would be senseless to attempt a scale as large as 1:24000 on a small screen device such as a GPS. If you want 1:24000 maps, get National Geographic's Topo Series for your state...it's great!!! It also allows you to export waypoints and routes to your Garmin. It just won't load the actual map...only MapSource can do that.

Also, I've read the raving reviews about Maptech. What most people don't tell you is that Maptech and MapSource serve different purposes. MapSource is made by Garmin and can load tracks/waypoints/routes AND the actual map to your Garmin. Maptech can NOT load a map into your Garmin; Maptech is only good for loading waypoints/routes and then you have to PRINT the map. Instead of Maptech, get the National Geographic Topo map for your state; its less expensive and is quality stuff; it's the best for printed maps.

And one last thing... There are settings within the Garmin that determine how much detail a user will see. If these settings are turned to normal or medium, then don't expect to see the details (with or without MapSource).

I rate MapSource as 5 stars (best) because it delivers exactly what it promised. I'm very happy I made this purchase. Happy hiking...

3-0 out of 5 stars Garmin MapSource vs. Map Tech
I spent three hours online comparing different software for my Garmin E-Trex Vista, using my favorite little Northern Minnesota lake as my destination. I checked the difference between Garmin Mapsource Topo and Recreational, and found little difference. Sure they showed the lake, with pointy shorelines, and one big hill. It was kinda cool. Then I discovered Map Tech!!! The difference was breath-taking! Every little hill, a swamp, the reeds by the shore, and every subtle curve of the shoreline was shown in amazing detail! Instead of spending [$$] on the Garmin, and only being mildly excited, I spent an extra [$$], and got a map that gave me the confidence and peace-of-mind to explore all those unknown woods around the lake, with the full confidence of knowing every inch of the terrain. But only if you PRINT them. I was dissapointed that you can't load the maps into the Garmin Vista, only waypoints. So now all I can do is mark the trail the map so clearly shows on the computer, as waypoints against a blank field on the GPS. The only thing it didn't show, was the dirt road that led to the lake, which was an official Dept. of Natural Resources boat launch. Go to Maptech.com, and check out your favorite area for yourself.
If you want to load maps, then go hiking, MapSourse is best. If you want to plan a hike on the computer first, Maptech is best. (Haven't checked Nat'l Geographic).

2-0 out of 5 stars Disappointing
Note: This product includes an ancient version of Garmin's MapSource program. You will want to download an update from the Garmin Web site. A patch to the base map is also available there.

Even with these updates, the product is disappointing. There is very little detail. In the areas I examined, hiking trails were completely absent, and even major fire and logging roads were missing. Roads are shown in populated areas, but road names are not available. Newer roads are missing. Portions of the map appear to be at least 10 years out of date.

The density of contour lines is linked to the map scale and cannot be controlled independently. At high zoom factors, the number of contour lines is (barely) adequate, but at low zoom factors there are too few. Because of this, it is impossible to view major topographical features. The Colorado Rockies, for example, are completely invisible because at the scale necessary to see them in their entirety, the contour lines are gone. Even smaller features, such as a mountain 20 miles away, cannot be easily visualized. Without the aid of a GPS receiver, these maps would not be adequate for backcountry hiking.

The hype for this product claims that it is "comparable to USGS 1:100,000 scale maps". This is utter nonsense. As I write this, I am comparing just such a USGS map with the MapSource display of the same area. There is no comparison. To say that the USGS map blows MapSource away would be an understatement. Don't leave home without a paper map!

2-0 out of 5 stars Know what you're buying/ use the right tool for the job
I would just like to make a few comments about some of the reviews posted on this page concerning Mapsource's Topo USA software.

A number of reviewers have complained that this software is problematic or not accurate for cities or roads or neighborhoods. Well, while that may be the case, this product seems designed for the outdoors. It is intended to aid in navigating across wilderness areas (terrestrial and aquatic), not necessarily through the streets of downtown LA or any other city however large or small. Mapsource happens to sell a Metroguide product that is intended to serve city/road-navigation needs.

Yes, I will admit that the product description listed on this page talks about highways and roads and churches and other "non-wilderness" items and might be slightly misleading, but reviewing the entire product description I think you will see that the main emphasis is on wilderness travel.

Using this Mapsource Topo product for a purpose for which it was not specifically designed and then complaining about its lackluster performance is not really fair or accurate. You wouldn't use a toothbrush to brush your hair (although some might; I'm not passing judgement here) and it seems just as incorrect to use this product for urban needs. So if you have a StreetPilot or use your Garmin GPS for road/city navigation, check out the MetroGuide software and see if it suits your needs a little better.

Final point concerns the fact this product's maps are on the 1:100,000 scale. Be sure you know what this level of detail (or lack of detail as this case may be) means. I do not know what the contour interval of this scale map is, but the 1:63,360 scale maps are 100 feet (I believe). The 1:100,000 would have a larger contour interval and therefore, certain hills and ravines or valleys (depending on how big or small) might not show up on the map; they might be "hidden" between the contour intervals. Other software packages offer better mapping capabilities and easier user interface, but the one big drawback is that the topo maps generated by those programs cannot be downloaded into Garmin units; only MapSource topo maps can be downloaded.

I'm certainly not saying this product is error or problem free. Far from it. But the reviews should be as fair and accurate as possible so that other potential buyers can make well-informed decisions.

1-0 out of 5 stars Don't Waste Your Money!
To bad there wasn't a choice to give this 0 stars. Mapsource maps aren't good enough to deserve 1 star. I spent over a thousand bucks on a Garmin StreetPilot and the Mapsource unlock keys. The StreetPilot would be a great investment if it used maps other than those ones produced by Mapsource. If I use my StreetPilot as the gps receiver and hook it up to my laptop and run Microsoft's MapPoint, I get much more detailed maps and better accuracy. If Garmin wanted to improve their product, they'd leave the hardware alone and ditch Mapsource. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Good alternative to All-in-one GPS units
I've been using a Garmin StreetPilot III for 3 years now, for those unfamilar with it, its a all-in-one GPS unit with auto-routing feature and voice prompt.Its a good trusty device, highly rugged and I credit much of my career success in Silicon Valley to it.

What prompted me to start sourcing for another GPS device is due to the airport hassle we experience these days.I work for the Sales department of a security company and that means frequent travel these days.The StreetPilot III is an excellent device but its a little bulky to fit into my notebook bag.

Hence enter the Garmin GPS 10.I got mine for $209 from Digitally Unique, they're slow on shipping but the price was good.Get the Deluxe package and not the receiver only one, the Garmin software and maps are worth the money.

In comparison with the older StreetPilot, advantages are:
1.Small, light and easily fit into your pocket or laptop bag, easier when passing through airport security.

2.Integrated magnetic mount allows for mounting outside the rental car, a good solution in case you rented a car with heatsheild on the windscreen that can block GPS signal.

3.Waterproof, so you can still mount the device outside the car in adverse weather condition.

4.Software provided for both PocketPC and Windows OS (Mac / Linux users are out of luck here).Most business travellers like myself typically carry a PDA and for sure has a notebook.In case your PDA fails, you'll still have GPS capability using your notebook.

5.Enhanced software features includes:
- More customization options
- Cool transparent setting for indicators and prompts
- Elevation indicator, nice feature when travelling
- Easier filter for Waypoints and POI (Points of Interest)

6.Uses standard SD or Compact flash memory cards supported by your PDA instead of the proprietary flash memory cards from Garmin.Get the Viking 512mb SD card available from Amazon here with rebate, goes nicely if your PDA has a SD slot.

7.The GPS 10 turns on automatically if it detects power from the 12v cigarette lighter adaptor.


Disadvantages compared to StreetPilot III:
1.This could be related to my choice of PDA, I'm using a Dell Axim X5 PocketPC 2003. This PDA does not have an integrated Bluetooth so I use a Anycom Bluetooth CF card.Whenever I turn off the PDA and back on again, I need to re-connect the Bluetooth serial connection.Then I have to stop the Garmin nRoute software from searching the serial port, then reconnect again.A bit of a hassle compared to the StreetPilot III where you simply turn it on.

2.Routing algorithm not as good as StreetPilot III.The Pocket PC based routing logic seems to be slightly inferior to the one based on SP III (Palm OS based).

3.Depending on your PDA, the screen could be very difficult to read in the car.The Dell Axim X5 does not do well despite its transreflective LCD.The SP 3 on the other hand is clearly visible under all sorts of condition.Recommend you buy a PDA with a very bright screen.

4.PDA dependent.The SP 3 is a integrated device and is very rugged, sitting in direct sunlight for 2 years before I finally managed to buy a townhouse with a garage last year.The PDA however, is flimsy in comparison.I would not thing the Dell Axim will hold up being in sunlight all the time for 2 years.

5.Mounting a hassle.For a semi permanent mount in a car, you'll have to buy a mount either from Seidio or Arkon.However, those mounts are mainly for the PDA and you'll have to mount the GPS 10 seperately.


Recommendation:
1.If you do not travel by air frequently but is looking for a GPS device for use in your car, go with one of those all-in-one devices such as the older Garmin 2610/2620 or the newer Garmin c320/c330.They're much easier to use and mount, and are easier to see in your car.

2.For frequent travellers by air, get this Garmin GPS 10 and a good PDA.This combo is a lot more portable and works even if you end up renting a car with heatshield on the windscreen.Also, in case the PDA fails, you'll have your notebook to fall back on.

3.If you decide on the Garmin GPS 10, get a PDA that has the fastest possible processor. The latest Intel XScale running at 624Mhz is a good choice.My Axim X5 running 416Mhz though usable, I sometimes felt a faster processor would be nice when I'm planning a trip and markign waypoints on the PDA. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars "Must Have" for the iQue 3600
The navigation capabilities of the iQue 3600 are fantastic. One really must have this Auto Navigation Kit in order to take full advantage of the unit.

"Friction Mount" in this case means that the unit is attached to a bean-bag base with high-friction rubber underneath so it doesn't slide around your dashboard.

5-0 out of 5 stars Absolute Must
It stays put, it charges, and in New York city it's absolutely indispensable for getting good reception on the run.

4-0 out of 5 stars Works Great
Aside from a major collision, it will stay where you put it. Only problem is viewing the screen up on top of the dash. Too much glare, except at night. Am thinking of an external antenna, but that's another 60 to 90 bucks. Otherwise, wonderful.

5-0 out of 5 stars You really do need this if you have the IQue 3600
The friction mount makes it easy to use my IQue in the car. It keeps the screen in easy view, and the speaker on the plug makes it easy to hear the turn by turn directions. I am very glad I invested in the auto navigation kit.

It does work best on a flat dash board. The dash in our suburban slopes away toward the windshield, so you have to turn the GPS sideways to keep the antenna from hitting the windshield. My sedan has a flatter dash and it works perfectly.

You will be able to locate the unit pretty much any place on the dash where you can stand a coke can.

3-0 out of 5 stars Good product, but not slip-proof
You might get the impression from reading the other reviews here that this device never loses its grip even under off-roard conditions. Sorry to say but this isn't true. At least on my sloping dash, I have had to place it on top of one of those "sticky pads" to get it to stay in place at all. And it still isn't really that secure. As others have said here, it would be hard to live without now. The unit is very flexible in positioning the iQue for best visibility, and the charging cable/speaker is great, though a bit bulky around the power plug. Still, until something better comes along this is probably your best choice. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Works great, some idiosyncracies
You might be asking yourself, should I get the City Select Europe or the City Navigator Europe for about twice the price? I can't answer the question for you but I can say that I just returned from a 3 week trip where we drove all over Switzerland and France (including Paris) using City Select Europe and I'm glad I made the purchase.

I loaded my 2610 (North America basemap) with a good portion of eastern Europe before I departed. Once there, I was surprised how quickly the GPS acquired satelites and provided position and directional information. The GPS did a fine job of directing us from the airport to our hotel, from the hotel to sights in the area, to our hotel in Paris, to side trips to Dijon and Basil, etc. Worked equally well in cities and between cities.

The only problems I found, and these are not major ones IMHO, are:
* Once the GPS told us to take exit 46. But the exits have no numbers!
* Several times the GPS told us to take an exit using a description that was not on the exit.
In both cases, the audible directions ("in 2 kilometers exit right") and maps (showing the turn) were correct.

So what's the difference between City Select and City Navigator for Europe other than the price? I contacted Garmin, they say that "City Navigator handles rotaries (roundabouts) better". I did not see any problems with roundabouts during my trip.

I suspect that the City Navigator has more points of interest loaded, but I don't know this for a fact. Bottom line, I would recommend City Select Europe to anyone with a 2610 needing to travel in and around the countries it covers. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Good data for SE Asia
I used the database on my Garmin 76S in Thailand, Vietnam & Laos and found that the data was quite accurate. It even has many of the old Lao 'Lima Site' airfields!

3-0 out of 5 stars OK but no cigar
I bought this to use with my Garmin eMap. For the USA the detail level is the same as came preinstalled on the unit--major highways. I've used it in London, Cambridge, Paris, Tokyo and Munich. There isn't really enough detail to find your way around any of these cities but it is useful for e.g. finding your way from suburb to suburb. The River Cam wasn't very close to where the map had it so it helps to use one's eyes. The maps are dated. We are developing a site in the high Andes near San Pedro de Atacama for the ALMA telescope--the map of that region did not show the Jama Road from Calama to Salta Argentina, a major international route (admittedly less than a decade old--but paved!).

Amazon.com Product Description

The MapSource MetroGuide U.S.A. CD-ROM contains the electronic equivalent of several paper maps and represents the same information found on MetroGuide cartridges. MetroGuide U.S.A. includes trip and waypoint management functions that allow you to transfer waypoints, routes, and tracks between your PC and nearly all Garmin GPS units while viewing detailed maps on your PC screen.

With a map-download-compatible Garmin GPS, MetroGuide U.S.A. allows you to load map detail, addresses, business listings, and points of interest from any region in the continental United States, Alaska, and Hawaii. You can transfer MetroGuide U.S.A. data from a personal computer to your GPS unit or to a blank or preprogrammed data cartridge (compatible with StreetPilot III).

You'll see details such as the locations of restaurants, banks, gas stations, and tourist attractions, plus much more. In addition, you can use your GPS to look up street addresses and points of interest, then navigate to them with the help of onscreen arrows and street-level detail. You'll be able to drive to any city address in the large database using an electronic map that shows street-level detail.

Note on compatibility: The trip and waypoint management functions of this product work with nearly all Garmin GPS units, excluding the GPS 100 family and panel-mount aviation units. Specifically, the map download features of this product work with the eTrex Legend, eTrex Vista, eMap, GPS V, StreetPilot, StreetPilot ColorMap, StreetPilot III, and GPSMAP 76, 176, 182, 188, 232, 238, 295, 2006, and 2010. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Don't go for a holiday without this!
I'm using this with a Garmin eTrex Vista. Been quite useful so far, especially just to keep track of where you are (just about every road, big and small, in the US is in the map) or when you're in a new place and you just want to find the closest Italian restaurant with the GPS of yours. (Of course it probably only works with selected Garmin GPSs)

Maps in this CD are about 2 or 3 years old so some new roads will probably be missing. Each city map takes about 7Mb and with the eTrex's serial connection to the PC, it takes ages to upload.

Once you finally get over the uploading time, its a bliss. Like you're in control of everything.

4-0 out of 5 stars Best maps for Garmin GPS
Note that although v5 is now out, it's really more of a map data vendor change than an "update". The interface is identical, and much of the map data is, too. The main differences will be in Alaska and Hawaii. You can use the map viewer at Garmin's web site to check out what the v5 maps look like.

Also, MetroGuide v5 can only be used to create routes on a PC. You cannot use its maps to create routes on a StreetPilot or other GPS that does its own routes. You can use the City Select CDs to do this.

Finally, if you're wondering what the difference between this and Roads & Recreation, that is intended for older and low memory (1MB or less) units. If you have 8MB or more, get MetroGuide.

1-0 out of 5 stars Stop! Get the new version five!
Version five is out, just ordered and got version four -- ouch!

2-0 out of 5 stars It'd be nice if the maps were updated in the near future.
I got this for my eTrex Legend. Like the other reviewers have said, the maps are pretty badly out of date. If you're in a relatively new area, don't expect this CD to have any streets listed.

If you are navigating in an established area that's been around for more than three or four years, you'll find the maps to be pretty helpful. They are very detailed, and I've found that even if a restaurant isn't properly located on the map, the marker is usually within walking distance of where it should be. Note though, that because this map data is rapidly aging, a lot of these restaurants have gone out of business and no longer exist.

I live in Los Angeles, and the area is so big that Garmin split it up into two maps on this CD. One covers just about everything west of the 710 freeway, and another covers everything from the 710 east out to Palm Desert and Orange County. The problem is that these two maps are like 7 megs EACH.

If you live in the Los Angeles area and require full coverage, the 8 MB of the eTrex Legend just isn't enough to hold it all at once. That's not a big deal for me, but it would have been nice to know that beforehand.

If you have a need for coverage of the entire LA/OC area, you'd be much better off with an eTrex Vista which has 24 megs of memory (and costs more than twice as much as the Legend!)

3-0 out of 5 stars Works Great on My Garmin
Much has been written in these Amazon.com reviews about the problems with this product. And, I find it hard to disagree with much of what has been said. However, when I load it into my GPS Map 76S it is a beautiful thing. It looks better on the GPS than on the computer. I also like the ability to build, and save, routes on my computer and then load them in the GPS as needed. It is much easier to use a full computer screen and a mouse to click the waypoints, rather than using the much smaller GPS screen and controls. Probably my biggest gripe is the pre-defined areas that can be loaded to the GPS. One corner of New York City is on the New Jersey map. So to get the as small part of the western side of the Island of Matthatten, you have to use valuable memory loading the top half of New Jersey. MapSource is not as nice a map as my DeLorme, which I use all the time on my computer. However, this is the only game in town for use with the Garmin GPS. If you want a map to use on your computer get DeLorme or the Microsoft product, both of which are cheaper that MapSource. If you have a Garmin GPS this is a product, despite some flaws, does work very well. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Not bad
The detail in this product is not bad. The point of the product is for offshore navaids. It is of limited detail for inland regions. Other MapSource software are better for that. The trip and waypoint management functions are great. It is fun to transfer your tracks to the PC to see where you have been. If you are considering buying this, be sure to check out Garmin's online MapSource Map Viewer on the cartography page of their website. It shows the detail in the product. It can help you determine if the software is right for you. I would recommend their GPSMAP 76 unit without hesitation. It is great GPS unit!

2-0 out of 5 stars Kind of disappoinitng
After using Garmin's US Roads and Recreation software, I expected more from this one than I got. Quite a bit of the information is already available in Roads and Rec., and U. S. waterways doesn't have that much more. It misses many boat launch sites in CT, doesn't show many other features as described in the earlier review, and doesn't show major marine features such as natural and artificial reefs. I think Garmin coud have done a much better job with the space on the CD.

4-0 out of 5 stars Improved Map detail, good route creation, and track review
If you have an eTrex product (I have a Vista) the MapSouce tool adds a very nice PC based route and waypoint creation and editing, upload/download, tool. Perhaps the coolest MapSource feature is the ability to capture the track data from your GPS for review, saving, and even printing the actual track maps for your log book.

The shoreline, park, roadway maps, and waterway points of interest are much better than the default data in the Garmin GPS when purchased and make this software and data worth having.

Don't however, expect this database to replace an actual chart, a real chart is essential for any navigation because this data DOES NOT include ferry routes, cable crossings, marinas, depth soundings, or even all of the boat launch ramps.

A particular site to check is Garmin.com for a bulletin they have with a data upgrade for some east coast data that is was in error. ... Read more
