View Full Version : Anyone using the GPS feature with the Eclipse 5000 and 7000?

I ordered the 5000 today but not really because of the GPS. Tonight I was thinking about if I want to add that on later for the $200 it costs then it kind of dawned on me.... what for :crap: It will show you where you are on planet Earth but it isn't like some of the nicer GPS setups like Mercedes, Alpine, etc... has where it talks and gives you directions plus all the shops and stuff. Just curious if anyone has it and likes what it does.

Supposedly you load the MAP, and it does point to point without the GPS (so if you have a route that has like 10 points (1. Get on Interstate 5 2. Exit on 3rd street, make a left..... etc.) you have to click a button to tell it you are on Interstate 5, and then when you exit on 3rd, you have to tell it you have exited by hitting whatever key to tell it next and so on). With the GPS, it knows where you are on the map supposedly and automatically tells you to turn and stuff like that. You do have to load your MAPs in from the Iserve website, but it could be worse.
