This has a crisp and colorful LCD screen and a USB jack or AC adapter for power.
It is Bluetooth capable and has a memory card slot for backing up data.
The system comes with a Cradle connector, a USB cable, USB jack, a 5V, DC (IN) jack and a Headphone jack. It has a built-in, rechargeable, Lithium-ion battery, and a small oval speaker for voice guidance.
The battery will stay charged for about three hours in stand-by mode, and about one or two hours when being used.
Getting started with the GPS setup was easy, and it has a decent user interface.
Connecting it to my Bluetooth phone was easy, and having the memory stick to back up data is a handy feature.
It is lightweight and the battery seems to hold its charge well. The screen is easy to wipe off and clean, but it seems to streak/smudge easily, as well.
Overall this is a very good system and for the most part, easy to use.
This product is pricey. At the time of purchase, this was the only GPS with Bluetooth capabilities (in my area). In addition, you do not get a free, first-time update. You have to pay for the updates and the price can range from sixty to a hundred dollars, or more.
