The Zumo is a nice GPS, but it has a few flaws, some very annoying and unacceptable on such an expensive device. These two are my pet peeves:
- It the unit can't find a street, it may be due to a simple typo. So, you go back to entering the name, but you have to start from scratch, because the 660 hasn't retained what you typed before. This is stupid. The cheapest smallest computer can do that.
- And the worst: The «Avoidances» and «Route preferences» options are general «Settings» from the «Tools» menu, but they should be offered as specific options to chose from every time you enter data to find a route. For example, sometimes, you want to avoid highways, sometimes you don't. One should not have to remember to first go and check the general settings when entering data. Today, going back home from errands in the suburbs, the 660 made me take numerous congested small streets and avenues, because I had forgotten to go and uncheck «Avoid highways» in the geneeral settings.
I have already voiced my discontent with Garmin, asking for a rectification in a future free downloadable software update. If you agree with me, please, make your voice heard as well with Garmin. Thanks.
