Summary: This was a very nice GPS unit when I bought it in 2011. Nowadays it feels a bit dated. The Google Maps application on my iPhone does as good or better job in most cases, and is "free" (if you own a smart phone). Comparisons to the smartphone app: * The touch screen on the Garmin isn't nearly as responsive as the touch screens we've become accustomed to on our smart phones.
Summary: Love Garmin and have had several over the years. This model worked beautifully until yesterday. We did not drop it or abuse it in any fashion. It was installed on the front windshield during June - December. It abruptly lost power and refused to start back up. Tried it out in another car in case the cigarette lighter / power was at fault. No, the Garmin is truly dead. Very distressed. Going down from 5 stars to 3.
Great value for the money if loaded with current updated to get started.

Summary: I bought this product for unexpected travel. I was sold on the ideal of free life time map updates and of course the reputation of GARMIN being a top rated brand. However, I did not know the current updated map for the product was not on the device and has to be down loaded. Not all of us elder ones can afford a computer on a fixed income or have need of a computer daily.
Summary: THIS GPS HAS VERY GOOD FEATURES. THE ONLY PROBLEM I FIND WITH THIS UNIT IS, THE VOLUME IS WAY TOO LOW AN IT CAN NOT BE RAISED HIGH ENOUGH FOR USEAGE IN A NOISY AREA. I THINK THE SPEAKER SHOULD BE MOUNTED ON THE FRONT, NOT THE BACK.
Summary: I emailed Garmin the following: Problem Description: I have an average of 15 stops a day on my route and i want to put them in at the beginning. when I voice command it says add to current route or start new route. I say current route but after speaking 2 or 3 destinations it starts a new route and stops asking for current route option. I also cannot figure it out manually. Besides this, I love my Garmin. thanks!
Summary: I just received my Garmin 2360LMT GPS. I connected it to the computer with the micro-USB cable that was included. Later I took it on the road, only to find out that the wrong vehicle power cable has been included. The end that is supposed to fit into the Garmin, is clearly different than the end that fit into it for use with my computer. I am hoping to find a way to have that replaced and not have to return the Garmin as it seems like a good one, and I am traveling soon.
Summary: Well, I am not going to write volumes since other people have pretty much expressed a lot about it. I will say this is my first GPS and I LOVE having one. I go on numerous trips and often arrive late at night in big cities I am unfamiliar with. It has saved me on numerous occasions. If you ever even wondered if a GPS could help, trust me, IT WILL. However, my biggest gripe is the voice recognition. I feel I enunciate well and that my grammar is good.
Summary: This is a good GPS unit but the Lane Assist is disappointing. It pops up for 3-4 seconds and disappears. I wish it stayed up until one exits the interaction. In addition, it did not included the 3-D maps. Speed limit indicators is useless as there is no audible norification.
