Summary: Ordered for navigating around California and across the country. The navigation itself works without issue. Making detours are easy and quickly get you back on your route, although the traffic is not accurate . Now for the bad. The touchscreen is horrendous. More specifically, the on screen keyboard is almost unusable. When depressing a letter, the keyboard will show that key as being depressed, but when released, an adjacent letter or number will be entered.
Summary: The unit was working well until we had it 32 days and now it won't even come on. The seller will not accept the return so now we have to deal with Garmin - Customer No Service. What a pain. Next time I sould buy it at a retail store like Walmart that accepts returns.
There's better choices. Garmin could have done better!

Summary: Please note that the 2350 is an old model, and you might want to look at the current offerings. Hopefully Garmin improved things in the new models, and you can get more features for less money. This is my second Garmin GPS and my perception is that Garmin doesn't have their full attention on providing the customer with the best GPS unit. While I understand that every company has their eye on the bottom line, they must realize their products must satisfy the customer.
Summary: This was my first GPS device and it was a bitter disappointment. I have to say that I am one of those people who like to think for themselves and have opinions and preferences. If you are not like that, or if you are used to GPSs and know what to expect from them, this review probably will not be useful to you. If you use any contemporary electronic devices, like smart phones and tablets, then any GPS will seem like a stone-age device to you.
Summary: My brand-new Garmin 2350LMT rebooted randomly during use as soon as I got it. Each time it rebooted, it lost my navigation route and other data. Updating with the latest software did not help. Route calculation was at least three times slower than my 4-year-old Nuvi 200. I returned the product for a refund.
Summary: Nowhere on the package or in the literature am I able to contact the Manufacturer,am unable to register online and have no manual to find out how to use features.I had a cheaper Tom-Tom with better features,please let me know how to contact manufacturer or I must return product.
Summary: The downloadable life time maps feature is a total waste of money. Despite Garmin's claims to the contrary, the maps simply will not download with Windows 7. The problem is with the drivers which are apparently incompatible with Windows 7. Even with the help of Garmin tech support and the help of peers, the drivers simply do not download with Windows 7. This problem is not computer specific; three different computers running Windows 7 all had the same problem.
Summary: I loved my first Garmin (1300), so I had high expectations for my new one. I chose the 2350...and found that it has a big design flaw! The USB port is at the *bottom* of the device. So with gravity pulling down on the cord constantly, the cord kept pulling out! So the Garmin would never fully charge. Sadly, I had to return it! Bummer! ALSO -- I don't like that the lower right corner of the screen is hard-wired for your travel speed and the speed limit.
Summary: I like everything about this unit better than my old GPS units EXCEPT...... This one has advertizements and cupon offers that pop up in the middle of the screen and it appears that the only way to get them off so that you can see the map fully is to manually change the screen. If it werent for the commercials, this unit would rate 5 stars.
