PROS:quick, accurate routing. smooth rendering. Nice information display on the map � street name, upcoming, etc. automatic alternative route, or manually touch the screen to create custom alternative route. autofill in search window. split view for highway ramps. Separate upcoming tab - turns, POIs, distance, etc.CONS:1. no traffic capability! this is a showstopper for me. i need my route to consider traffic, and i need to be able see on the map where congestion occurs. so, i returned the EX version for the LMT version.2. power supply hard-wired to an on old clunky cigarette lighter adapter. the year is 2018. get with the program garmin. at a minimum, provide a usb that plugs into a small lighter adapter.3. confusing menu drilldown. this should't be that hard, but garmin does their best to confuse the interface.4. granny features. i don't need to know i'm going 5MPH over the limit, and i can see with my own peepers that there's a curve coming up. I'm not blind, or should I say, sight-challenged.5. POI menu. Its senseless, as in, doesn't make sense. Allows me to shuffle POI types up and down. Who cares? And looks like I must have a minimum of 3 POIs, but i only want one.6. no storage case.7. poor documentation. you get an Ikea style sheet of icons. nothing more. first, you must plug it in and let the battery charge for at least an hour. you can't even turn it on until battery has charged. then, it displays the website address, and you must go to that address to start the update process. of course, you must plug the unit into your computer, but you can't do that with the provided power cord. you have to buy your own cord that has a usb. fortunately at least the update process works smoothly.
