Just got a 2610 and did a trip with it to Orlando in the car. Unit worked pretty much flawlessly. I was impressed with all it did for me. Getting off route and re-calculating is wonderful. We had to get off the highway hust east of Orlando and go surface streets to avoid a jam, but She got us to where we were supposed to be right on time!

Overall impression - Great unit, very easy to use!

Thanks Ron Bien & LuckyWilber.

Chef, now that is a new name for "Bitching Betty". LOL's Sounds like you have gotten yourself a very useful "toy" GPS unit. The more you use it and get comfortable with it the more benefits you will find owning it.

Yeah, my wife marvels in that will listen to her over the wife......well duh!

I can piss off BB in that she has to recalculate several times... :?

On my 2720 she sounds very exasperated when she recalculates....almost as she going to come out and say, "fine, do it your damm self".... :x :x :x

I love it.. :lol:

When I read the initial post, I had the same reaction as KYBLUE, except that she sounds more and more exasperated each time I make her recalculate.

The voice also reminded me of a thought I had when the Japanese cars first added voice alerts to their cars. If they had a sense of humor, they would have used the volice of Tokyo Rose!

Yea, I know what you mean. She can get to you. The unit needs a pause button to push when you get off the Interstate. I did put the British version on because she isn't as offensive as the American one. Or at least that's the way I hear it.
