Mike Mulligan, August 19, 2008 I was just in NYC, and added North America City Navigator to my 76
CSx ... Mostly it was fine, as far as finding your way, except that
it couldn't FIND any of the major attractions, like the Empire State
Building?? When I came home, and searched the same on MapSource, it
worked fine ... Who knows why?
Darrell, July 31, 2008 I believe the Garmin GPS systems are good systems, but the maps are
way out to lunch (at least when it comes to Canada). I just drove
through New Brunswick and the bulk of the highway was not even known
to the Garmin map, even though the map inside Garmin is supposedly the
2008 version, and the highway in New Brunswick - Canada has been there
for a few years now. There were many shops that it didn't know about
too. I needed a coffee and punched in "Tim Hortons". The nearest
Tim's was 63 km away according to the Garmin, yet I found one only a
couple of streets away from my current location. I asked the clerk if
they just opened up and she said, "No, we've been here for more than
10 years." So although I did get some good use out of the device, I
believe a lot of improvements can be made to ensure people are on the
right roads, and to ensure the database is updated with all food
chains and stores in the cities. I'm not sure why some are there, and
some aren't. It is a big problem when traveling and you don't know
where anything is. So if any of you are counting on your GPS to do
this, you may just want to ask a local resident where things are.
That's what we always used to do, and as it turns out it is still the
most reliable form of finding things.
OlafP, July 6, 2008 I bought this DVD because I wanted to upgrade my Garmin navigation because of a planned holiday trip. The coverage in Nova Scotia and New Brunswick is pretty bad. Highways that are here for 3+ years are not in the maps, making your GPS device sending you off the highway to secondary road. Even shopping areas which have been around for some time (e.g. Dartmouth crossing in Nova Scotia) is still listed in the maps as an open space. Very disappointing !!
