A useful tool that I would use but not totally rely on.
10 February 2014
Summary: I travel a lot for my job. For areas that I am unfamiliar with I will be relying on this unit to get to my destination. I have experimented locally to see if the unit will take me to destinations that I know and it sometimes goes to an alternate longer route? I cannot compare it to other units because this is the first GPS unit that I have purchased. Maybe I have to change some settings on the unit to get to the shortest route?
Summary: This is the best GPS model that Garmin ever made. The 2460 LMT is loaded with features not found on newer models. After this model they stared watering down the features that are offered per individual model. The only way this model could have been improved is by making it available in a 6 inch screen. This is my third 2460LMT due to the first two being stolen out of my vehicle.
Summary: I have had six Garmin gps's and I consider this the best yet. I even like it better than my 7" 2797 Garmin, which I like very much. The main reason that I like the 2460, (of which I have two), is that it has a redlight camera detector and it beeps when you are approaching one. This will save you more than the cost of the gps if it prevents you from getting a ticket. The 2797 does not have this, but you can get it for and additional fee.
Summary: This is our first GPS and we did a significant amount of comparing prior to purchase. My folks had tried a few different GPS units so their input was greatly appreciated. They started out with an annoying device they referred to as "Lu Lu" and moved into a TomTom. They liked the TomTom but after trying a Garmin they said they liked that the best. It seemed like a good starting point so with tips in hand, we gave this one a try.
Summary: The car charger provided in the package has a regular USB connector while the device has a mini USB. I had to return it to store. The funny thing is the refund is $3 less than I paid! For this purchase I lost $6 including shipping. Is this something you expect from buying a refurbished product? However I really liked the lifetime map and traffic features so I placed another order for the same. Hopefully this time Walmart can get it right!
Summary: About 3 months ago I decided to try a refurbished unit From Garmin through walmart. This was the best GPS I have ever owned and is still functioning excellent. With the cable hook up going into the mounting bracket instead of the GPS itself, I decided to get another one for my other car. A month ago I ordered anther 2460 LMT refurbished. It did not work right out of the box. Only screen I could get to was United States.
Summary: GARMIN 2460LMT (refurb) I had an entry-level Garmin for about 4-5 years before I ordered this one. I liked that this one had the lifetime maps, the larger screen, and that the price of this model was only $25-30 more than just a map update for my little rope-start GPS unit (Garmin's map updates are way too expensive).
Summary: Have used this on my first major trip to Florida. So far works as advertised. Haven't tried voice commands yet. Quickly recalculates if I go a different way than it recommends. Have not used traffic as most of my driving is in a rural area. Quite anxious to try the sorting of 10 destinations into the most efficient routes.
Summary: This GPS has a lots of features for not a lot of money (reburbished). The voice command, speak street names, lifetime maps & and traffic, big screen, lane view, etc are all very helpful. I just bought a Hybrid car and there's a way to put the cost of gas per gallon bought and the mpg of the car which then calculates how much was spent for each trip. It's also bluetooth so you could make a hands free call through the GPS. Like I said, lots of features!
