    HI Airblaancer:

    Have not used Viago but have used plenty of other NAVI apps incl. Garmin's own. None come close to a real Garmin unit.

    Viago app = only $1.99

    iphone6 + service = arm and a leg

    Yup . I'm liking my Garmin.

    What a strange statement :confused:

    If you have a smartphone , then there no extra cost
    If you buy the downloadable maps there no service charge ($20 for North America, $20 for Europe)

    Take your Garmin to Europe and try use it for the day walking around , you will be getting Víago pretty quickly

    Garmin will only last about 3 hours on battery, which will not get you to far , and their Euro maps are close to $100 to download

    You have to get the right tool for the right job :D

    My old nav was a garmin , so for $1.99 it a great deal.
    To get live traffic it is $20, which I do not have, not much traffic where I am :D

    If you do not want a lot of screens on your dash , it works
    I have used this in Europe in the cities and have alleys for streets and always found my way out :p

    I own a Garmin nuvi 2555LMT and I like it. My stepmom has one, as well - but we have learned not to leave the cord plugged in while you are not using it - bouncing on the plug is a quick way to break it.

    So, I bought a nuvi 65LM (with lifetime maps) and I am giving my 2555 to her. Transferring my saved places was a little frustrating, but it worked - and I transferred her's to my old unit. $119 at Costco, and 6" screen - so far so good!

    I recently bought a Garmin nuvi 57LM from Amazon. The lower right region of its touch screen didn't respond. A replacement is supposedly on the way.
