Waste of money. My Toyota Prius came with a built-in GPS so I figured this book would clarify things for me, but it didn't. It addresses handheld GPS devices in general. It was no help to me at all. Meh!

First GPS worked, but not as well as newer ones. Still a very valid book to get the most from this type of gear.

Only for handheld GPS users, good read if you want to go beyond your GPS manual.
