Not exactly user friendly and I’m 32. I grew up with computers; even built my own. I give it 3 stars because it works however with that being said, don’t bother hitting alternate route or avoid “X” road for so many miles because it will always tell you no route available. I also don’t care for it because it put me on “truck routes” in Tennessee and Kentucky yet the lane couldn’t even fit my damn truck. 55 mph road and I have to do 35 if I’m lucky because the roads were winding and hilly. Latitude and longitude works somewhat. Most of the time you’ll enter your coordinates but it will force you to use the one it wants you to use. Made me take a wrong turn just once so far. Make sure you power it off if your truck is off or in idle management because if you don’t it will constantly drain battery even if it says charging.
The major reason I give it 2 stars is because unlike other GPS’s like google for example, if you decide to not follow the route for whatever reason (road construction, rather take an interstate to avoid city traffic, etc...) it will constantly ask you to turn around instead of just updating to the way you clearly want to go. For example. Say you’re in IL headed to souix Falls ND. Say last minute you decide you don’t want to drive through Minneapolis so you take I-80 west instead. You could be all the way through 80 and on 29 N and will keep screaming at you to turn around so you can go through Minneapolis instead. Google would have just updated on the spot and had you stay on 80.
Onther reason is it won’t show you different routes you could take. Whatever your destination is, it will pick one fast or short route and that’s that. No if ands or buts about it. Google usually gives choices.
I realize this is not google. But I use hotspot on my phone to keep it up to date. I expect it to be able to auto update a route at the very least. All in all. It will serve its purpose but it’s not worth the money spent on it. Not one bit. My advice? Get a garmin. I can’t complain about my garmin.
