Summary: I used to have the Garmin 40LM and upgraded to this model once the 40LM pooped out on me (but I did send it to Garmin and got a free refurbished unit). But anyhow this 2455 is a nice step up over the 40. Love the traffic, even though it can be, well, off sometimes, but then other times its spot on in showing what is up ahead. With any GPS unit, it does take me the most pointless way at times, but honestly, on the whole for the average user, totally worth it.
Summary: My wife and I purchased this unit due to the updatable maps and the Canada database. At 2:30am during our trip we needed to go to a hospital for an emergency. We simply searched for Hospitals, found the closest one and were on our way im very little time! We owned the unit for 8 days at the time we needed to do this. Easy to start, easy to search, easy to follow and the maps were up to date!

Summary: I like the product and it helps me to find what I want. I only faced one hard time for having Middle East and North Africa Maps through the site to match the product number but I will do it ASAP. Thank you for this chance.
Summary: Thief stole my previous Garmin. (That taught me to not leave tell-tale marks on the windshield even if you hide the GPS on the floor. I got a beanbag mount this time; a bit clumsy-looking but easy to move and more importantly, stash out of sight.) This was closest replacement after 3 years. Wasn't sure for first week or so but grew to love it. Take your time adjusting to new elements. The standard must-have items are still there.
Summary: My original GPS was a Garmin Street Pilot. It looked like a tiny tube TV and had a robot living inside it. Or so the voice would make you believe. It was helpful in getting to where I needed to go but was a bulky little sucker and the map was old. Next I moved to a Tom Tom to see what they had. It seemed fine but the touchscreen was awful. A few months using it and I hated it. Once it started to guiding me to incorrect destinations it was time for it to go.
I blame myself for accidentally not getting a Satellite linked constant traffic and construction update model but this is A++++!

Summary: This unit is really great for all the features except that I meant to get a unit that had a similar model and the satellite traffic rerouting, etc... . This one is easy to use. When it is recalculating if I take a different route where I know the area (Such as departing from my home,) it does not make the annoying "Recalculating" electronic voice. It recalculates silently.
Summary: The title says it all. I have been having trouble with directions ever since I began driving. Not being confident in where I am going for years now has also left me with a lost confidence in driving. The idea of driving anywhere that I haven't been a million times made me so anxious, that I would avoid it at all costs.
