I've had it for a couple of days. I've noticed that it seems to route a bit smarter than v6, at least between my house and work. Also comparing the maps in v7 vs. v6 in many areas that I knew weren't quite right in v6 now look right (parts of Elk River and Chisago City).

I've found it to be a bit more spotty re the p.o.i than I was hoping. For example, I didn't double check when not momentarily stopped at a traffic light, but fwiw I only saw the Bloomington REI listed; the Roseville REI was absent. I've noticed a few funny things like that. But obviously it's great to have the updates even if they're not perfect. I'm glad the maps aren't way bigger than v6. I feared I wouldn't be able to load a large enough area since v7 came on a dvd instead of 2CDs as v6 did.

Yeah, poi coverage has always been spotty but it has saved my butt on numerous occasions. "Find food!"

Yeah, but at least we always have a backup -- let's just hope we don't DNF all the caches on any particular day -- find a cache eat a pretzel!
