ANSWER: "Preloaded GPS" often refers to the memory of a GPS device (either built in flash memory or a removable memory card) having maps for a given country or region. For example a North American preloaded GPS device likely has maps for Canada, USA and Mexico. It is up to the company creating the GPS device ultimately, and do a bit of research for a GPS device's choice of maps before deciding on a unit. A GPS web forum or the manufacturer's website would be excellent resources to help ensure you get what you are looking for out of your GPS purchase.

Is the Garman i3 a good or bad GPS?

I have the garman iQue. I love this gps system. Works great. They have a cradle/charger accessory for your vehicle. Screen is bright. The only downside to this unit is the battery life when not in the cradle. You could solve this with an accessory battery pack if you wanted to use the unit hunting, hiking etc. I've used this garmin for 3 years with no problems other than an occasional reset. I have the Garmin i5 which is the same as the i3 ecept the maps come preloaded. It is an excellent GPS, that I highly recommend.
