Pros: Auto routing with software purchase, color screen, mobility!
Cons: No sexy english voice telling you where to turn...
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Again...if your going to get a GPS for the Jeep please make it at least a hand-held. Spend the money to get the mount and stick it on the dash and call it good. The thing is great its small enough to fit on the dash left of the steering wheel and doesn't interfere with my field of vision at all. Plus when I get to where I want to go or if I'm Geocaching I just take it with me when I leave the Jeep!
