Summary: This is my third Garmin GPS and I like the functionalities. I bought this one because of an upcoming Europe trip. This GPS is supposed to have Europe map pre-loaded. It was not. Garmin Express on my computer showed that I needed to download the Europe map (> 4GB).
Summary: We are stationed in Italy. The Navy Lodge rents this out to help incoming personnel find their way around. Plus it tells you where the "safety cameras" in plenty of time to slow down! Would prefer a version with Lifetime maps, but then there are not too many new roads in Italy!!! :) Thanks Garmin.
Summary: We are an elderly but reasonably tech savy couple who purchased our Nuvi with European maps included. We traveled in Central Europe(Germany,Ceczh Republic, Austria, Italy and Swiztzerland) for 20 days in a rental car. We could not have survived without our Nuvi(stress relief).
Summary: My Garmin nüvi 2455LMT is a good little navigator that generally takes me where I want to go with good map legibility and generally reasonable routings. The 4.3" display is easy to read in most light conditions and I have used this successfully in both city and rural settings.
Unit works as expected, updating is another story and forget the pedestrian mode
21 June 2012
Summary: The unit seems to do what you would expect a gps to do, but there have been some problems with updating maps and software and the pedestrian mode is useless. First, I suggest anyone who purchases this unit download the complete manual from the Garmin website.
Summary: I've had this GPS for about a week and overall I'm happy. The display is nice and bright and easy to see in the sunlight. Using this device in portrait mode makes a lot of sense because you are typically more interested in what is in front of you rather than on the side of you.
Summary: I am very happy with this GPS unit - it bought it for a long holiday trip to replace my old Nuvi 650 and it was a good purchase. I have an Android phone with Google Maps Navigation, but I find the Nuvi to be much more convenient and usable in the car.
Summary: I'm certainly no techno expert but this GPS device got me to where I wanted to go and home again without a single missed or wrong turn. I used it for a 700 mile road trip in the Eastern US and never once did it give me any outdated or incorrect information.
