Summary: Garmin often takes you on extra long routes. This is done to pass by businesses that buy locations in their database. Also, the lifetime update is a joke. It takes too long and I had to limit my geographic area for it to load. It is a good product and I have used Garmin for years.
Summary: Very good! Easier to view than previous models we've had. Very helpful on the road but these devices always seem to catch the glare of the sun and become hard to see. The updates aren't all that great; it must be hard to keep up with all the highway and by-pass changes. Another bothersome thing: instead of replacing a restaurant that has gone out of business, it might list a new business at that same address...and still keep the old one in addition.
Summary: Got this to give as a gift. He wanted this specific Garmin 2350LMT which is more expensive than my budget. I like to save money and being refurbished didn't worry me. Normally refurbished units are checked to make sure they work properly before they are repackaged. I was wrong with this one. Unit came on but when you touch the screen it doesn't go to where you pressed. He is going to have to return it so guess we didn't get a good deal after all.
Summary: This is my 3rd Garmin and my best so far. I owned the 200W nuvi, my 1st purchase which I liked a lot. When it died, my needs were still basic, so I purchased its successor, the 255W. I hated it from day one. It took forever to "acquire satellites" and sometimes couldn't even find its location! Didn't work well in bad weather. Gave turn directions too late, so that I was constantly turning around. I rarely used it. Maybe it was lemon?
