Summary: I own two of these, and they work awesome. They are easy to use, have different options to show you elevation, speed limit, miles to destination, time to destination, etc to adapt to your needs. The traffic updates are nice, allowing me to take an alternative route if needed saving me time.
Summary: I bought my first Nuvi about 10 years ago and, for the most part, loved it! Sure, there were times when it had me going in circles, or was a little slow to respond, but it helped me out of a lot of jams.
Garmin nuvi 2457LMT: A Very Good GPS at a Bargain Price

20 May 2014
Summary: I purchased the nuvi 2457LMT to use on long trips instead of my 5-year old nuvi 255W. My purchase price was under $120 and included life-time maps and traffic (LMT). The improvements in the 2457LMT over the older instrument that are important to me include: more satellite sensitivity, faster...
Summary: This display looked very nice and wasn't too different in how it navigated from a much older model we had. The traffic feature was great and worked like a charm. Unfortunately I could never see anything, because this unit must have been dysfunctional.
Summary: We just received this GPS a few days ago and have been playing with it so we could get used to the features before we go out of town next month. This was purchased to replace a 10 year old Garmin that was impossible to update so it was time for a new one.
Summary: The unit operates without flaws, but the configuration of the screen and commands gets a bit confusing. Was traveling out of state and had a hard time finding how to switch states, you would think this is automatic. A steeper learning curve ahead.
Summary: This is my 1st GPS and wanted something to help me thru new cities as I travel. Got lost a lot with paper maps and just had enough of it, so this is the one I got after reading a lot on GPS. Working around an airport I know the Garmin name and so this put me on to them.
