Best GPS So Far

Pros: superb voice command system
"So far, this is the best GPS I have ever owned; and I have owned a lot of them, including the models 350, 265T, 1490T, 2460LMT and I have tried the 765T and the 3590LMT. First, it does not have the glare of the glass screen of the much more expensive 3590LMT. When doing searches or screen updates, it is almost as fast as the 3590LMT, and much faster than most other GPS's. Besides the lifetime updates to traffic and maps, it has a superb voice command system, even better than the system in the 2460LMT. It also has an excellent system for avoiding certain areas or streets."

An Excellent Garmin

"The latest 2012 model with great features. This is the "proper" size screen for most cars, making it much easier to see while driving."

Bluetooth flaw

Pros: very good features
Cons: bluetooth connection problems
"I was very pleased with unit for about three weeks BUT then it lost the Bluetooth pairing. I tried re pairing but pairing would go through a sequence of connecting and then immediately disconnecting, I hooked it up to the computer which helped for a few minutes but then reverted to the same problem. I googled the problem and found it to be quite common. No solution was found.
I will return it and get a different model.

Very good

Pros: quick start-up
Cons: bluetooth. when dialing don't hear ringtones, and barely hear person on other side of the line.
"For the same price as 2460LMT has less features, but unlike 2460LMT it's working.
When turning engine off, it doesn't shut down, but hibernates, thus when next time turning engine on, it just wakes up with all maps loaded.

Very satisfied

Pros: large screen, suggests alternate route in heavy traffic
"Happy with Garmin, the large screen is great. The split screen that shows the proper lane on highways was very helpful. Traffic information was current and very accurate."

Mine only lasts a week

"I was about to write a good review due to the initial good experience with the product, but unfortunately that doesn't last very long. Once I received the unit, I updated the system software and map, paired it up with my cell phone, and played with various routing options and things worked well in general. However, during our family trip to Ottawa, it died suddenly without warning symptoms even as it has been constantly charging in the car, about a week after I received it. I understand that this could be purely bad luck but Garmin definitely needs to do a better job on quality control. I have no other choice but to return it to Costco."

Turned into a brick

"Went completely dead after about 60 days. I'm guessing that the battery shorted out, because the unit started to heat up after it died and after it was disconnected from power. I'm going to order another one (Costco was quick to refund the amount when I returned it to the store), but if it fails again, that will tell all of us something."

ok, but missing a feature

"I live in Canada, where the speed limit indicator, seldom comes on (like the states) anyhow, some models, 2460 & any 3000 series have speed limit indicator on all the time...where you can set it & it remembers. I thought this had it & it does not. Other than that, all works fine"

Map is not up-to-date

"I like the split screen on lane guidance. However, the map does not have the road where I go to work for last 5 years. My old GPS from another brand would recognize that road. I returned it."
