Summary: I am geographically challenged and I even got lost following my older Garmin GPS! I am so glad my old one broke, so that I could upgrade to the Garmin nuvi 2457LMT 4.3-inch GPS! I like being told to turn "at the stop sign" or at the "gas station on the right." It's like having a friend next to you giving you directions! I wish that I had this GPS for the past 5 years...it would have saved me a lot of time that I spent getting lost! I recommend it highly!

Summary: After a true test while visiting Los Angeles... * Loved the quick recalibration whenever you veered off course. * Hated that you there is no option to use street names only rather than landmarks. * Missed the alternate routes that my 1450 suggested when travel time was impacted. They were not necessarily perfect every time but I appreciated the suggestions. I had to replace my 1450 because the response time when typing or searching was painfully slow as the unit aged.
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. Maybe I was expecting some wonderful, technological advances with this newer, improved model, so I am disappointed that that is not the case.
Summary: I upgraded to this GPS after seeing/playing with it in Bestbuy. Best decision ever!! The directions are clearer than ever, today when I was using it, it actually said "in a quarter mile turn right, right before the deli with the blue awning" and every turn after that seemed to have some sort of landmark too (ex: traffic light, gas station, etc). It even told me which lane to stay in! I love it! The other thing I really like about it, is the custom avoidance.
Summary: My last Garmin Nuvi finally bit the dust after several years. This one was easier to set up, is faster/easier to program, more intuitive to use and gives far better information. Highly recommended.
Garmin nuvi 2457LMT: A Very Good GPS at a Bargain Price

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 boot-up, brighter screen, lane guidance, the elimination of the "Recalculating" announcement every time you deviate from a chosen route (even at some highway rest stops), and an...
Summary: It is everything I wanted in a GPS. It is very user friendly and the split screen views makes it very easy to follow. The set up ensures that you get where you need to go and don't miss your exits!
Summary: Recommended by a friend so ordered. Only used twice so far, and loved it. Very accurate, easy to see, voice pitch just right for me. Maps are great, easy to setup and operate. Would recommend to anyone.
Summary: Just acquired an additional car and went through the agony of deciding which Garmin GPS to purchase. The amount of negative write ups on all possibilities almost stopped this purchase. I finally decided on this unit due to the fact that the positives out weighed the negatives. It came yesterday and so far the negatives are just plain wrong! This unit works exactly as it should and has lots of incremental improvements over my old GPS.
