    Comments about Goodyear Goodyear GY120 Rugged 3.5" Auto GPS Navigation Unit:

    I love technology and I am knowledgeable towards GPS devices. I have wanted my own GPS unit for over a year, but never really settled on which features I would like. Unexpectedly, my teenage daughter gave me the GY-120 as a Christmas gift. Frankly, due to its low price, I would not have ever given this unit a glance, but now I proudly recommend it to friends.

    The GY-120 has basic features, rugged design, and I have found it to be very accurate. The spoken directions are clear and “next turn” is displayed in advance. Points Of Interests (POI) appear on the map as you are driving. You can also go to the menu and pull up specific types of POI for a given area. The menu is very easy to navigate, even for someone with big fingers, like me!

    The “Spell Ahead” feature is useful in helping you to quickly enter destinations or locations. As you type, using the on-screed keyboard, names appear and you can select a word or continue typing. My only grip here is when using the backspace button, which sometimes causes the unit to jump out of the current menu. As minor as it is, that is the only annoyance that I have noticed while operating the unit.

    The device can be set for different travel modes, which are Car, Walk and Bike. These are useful in calculating speed and estimated time of arrival. This is also helpful when the device create routes/reroutes, for instance, when walking; one-way streets are not considered an issue.

    I was pleasantly surprised when I used this unit for the first time. After setting the region, time, and date, it was ready for usage! I have used it in the city and on rural routes. This unit navigates well under any conditions. Knowing the area as well I do, I force the unit to reroute several times and it did so flawlessly and quickly. Trust me, this makes a difference when you miss a turn in a high traffic area. I will admit that I encounter a newly developed residential area that was not available on the unit. Nevertheless, I cannot complain about that, because the area is not on my most current map either. New areas are always in development and the maps are updated accordingly.

    To sum things up, if you are looking for an accurate, basic, easy to use, affordably priced GPS unit, then the GY-120 makes an excellent choice. However, if you demand more features like Bluetooth, Voice Recognition, Road Hazard Warnings, and the likes- then this is not for you.

    I'm a salesman always on the road.This GOODYEAR GPS works great! That Instant re-routing feature helps me save lots of time, whenever I make an error and dont follow the directions. The predictive text feature quickly enters new locations. I would recommend this model brand to anyone that wants a GPS! No problems at all. I am very satisfied!!!
