Summary: Replaced a tomtom one ( 7-8 years old). Plus points: Light and relatively easy to use battery holds charge for a very long time in sleep mode camera alert works well stores/petrol locator excellent link to computer easy Negative points: screen not very clear navigation is poor, tries to take...
Summary: Very pleased with the sat nav. I like the videos that are displayed at major junction and find them very helpful. I also like the fact that if you deviate from a route you do not get a woman screaming at you to do a u-turn, it just quietly recalculates the route.
Summary: This one is not only well priced for the technology, but including the map and traffic updates free for life is very welcome. I have seen what some other companies charge for such upgrades. Very worth considering, covers a huge area so few people would need anything more.
Summary: I purchased the Nuvi 2445LMT in March 2013. Had it 2 weeks and whilst in the middle of a busy city the screen just went blank and would not come back on. I sent it back and received a replacement one - same thing happened again only this time screen went blank then came back on, went blank again and...
Summary: Useful in this country but couldn't do without in France! converted speed into mph and showed seed limits also dangerous road areas (speed cameras without the illegal warning) if you drive abroad buy one
Summary: I have never used one before and have rarely seen one in action, but found the feedback it gives intriguing, even fun. I would recommend using it on well-known runs to get to know anomalies of the system. I have only just started using this Garmin but would recommend it to any 'first timers'.
Very good, a great improvement on our original one.

Summary: Bought this to replace an old Garmin Nuvi that kept giving up the ghost. Familiar enough to make it easy to get working but so much faster, like the split screen too. Packing awful though, the outer wrapping not sealed so we were lucky it arrived.
Summary: As a satnav, this unit does it's job well. Route planning is competent (by which I mean it goes the way I wanted to go in the first place) and timings are generous (by which I mean I don't have to drive like a madman to achieve the predicted arrival time).
Excellent sat nav, let down slightly by sound quality

Summary: My old Nuvi 205 having finally refused to load, I decided it was time to update with this Garmin 2445. It was a very good choice. There are a lot of improvements when comparing the 2445 with the 205. The screen contains much more detail and there are more street names and numbers.
