The Pros:GPS gives reliable directions, can be counted on to get you where you're going. IPod integration is great, provides a nice interface. Large and clear display that's not too hard to see during the day.
The Cons:No expansion option for adding Bluetooth. Map updates aren't supported on this unit. Touchscreen is slow to respond, sometimes need to hit something a few times.
