Comments: Let me preface this with, My last Treadmill was a Runners world Best Buy-EVO. Very nice machine..owned for 7 years. When I saw this machine..I knew it was time for a upgrade. Basically I paid the same price as I did 7 years ago..but boy..what an improvement in technology. The Decline..works perfect. Drawing routes is fun, and well..motivating. Cons: AFter 12 or so miles on the Treadmill..the mapping program tends to freak out..and reboot itself. While the workout doesn't end..you can see that the software is a little memory hog..and wants to "refresh". After a few moments (minute maybe) the software gathers itself..and then starts working normally showing you views of the desired map. This is annoying..but probably doesn't effect the average runner, who may only do 4-6 miles at a time. I routinely run 20 miles on the mill..and well..the longer the distance..the more the software acts up.
