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 lifetime traffic capability is built into the power cable. By the time I realized that traffic function wasn't working, it was already past the 30 day return period and neither Amazon or Garmin would do anything, other than suggest I buy the appropriate cable (for $80, almost the cost of entire device).
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.
Summary: Sadly, this Nuvi has lost many useful features and is ergonomically inferior to earlier models. I bought it instead of spending nearly $100 to update the maps for my Garmin Nuvi 265WT so I would have a "new" unit with lifetime maps. This turned out to be a less useable unit than the older one in at least 7 ways. 1. When approaching some intersections the screen splits.
Summary: I had a Nuvi 350 that would either need its maps upgraded at a price for the second time, or I could just buy a new Nuvi. I loved the 350, although it was slow on startup to get a fix. So, researched and bought a Nuvi 2360LMT, which was a current model at the time. After a year of use, this thing is just problem plagued. There's a 25% chance that it will connect to my Bluetooth phone. What I mean is that I sometimes have to reboot the Garmin four times for it to connect.
Very difficult update map and poor customer service

Summary: After I received the 2350LMT, I registered on the Garmin website and tried to update the map. I spent several days to download the map, but it does not work. I sent email to customer service to get a help. the help from the customer service does not help at all. I called to the customer service center. I had to wait 20-30min to talk with a representative. But he also could not help at all. He said to me that he handles so many customers every day.
Summary: I bought this to replace my old Nuvi 260, 3.5" screen. There were three reasons I chose 2350LMT among others 1. MyTrends 2. Show actual junction view 3. Real Time Traffic After about 2 month use, however, none of them seems work as I expected. If I knew, I did not pay extra for those features. 1. MyTrends I use the unit to go to my office every day, with "MyTrends" option ON, but still does not remember my route. I am not sure what "MyTrends" does. 2.
Summary: Had I known the limitations of this device I would have invested in better maps. I wanted this device for long trips through unfamiliar urban areas. Features like "lane view", trip planning and route selection all seemed to meet my requirements. What I actually got: "Lane View" only worked in New Mexico! Ever been to NM? Traffic is light. So now let's choose between the fastest, shortest or most economical routes.
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.
