We have GPS built into our vehicle, but it is very difficult to negotiate, so we bought the Garmin and use it every day, for we love to explore our city.

I'm the worst city driver ever.This product has found addresses without fail.I love the way it finds restaurants in citys and gives you directions and distance to all of them that are close to your hotel.

Comments about Garmin Garmin nuvi 850, Portable GPS Car Navigator with 4.3" WideScreen LCD, Speech Recognition & Preloaded City Navigator NT for North America:

Doesn't come with mapping software DVDs. Must be purchased from Garmin for [$] in order to use Mapsource software and upload routes, waypoints etc. Once that was purchased it easily updated all of the info from my 2610 to the Nuvi. Could use map scale and choice of info on the screen as in the older models. Overall a very accurate unit.
