Summary: The Garmin 2496LMT is an outstanding product and well worth the price. The aspect of the product I like the most is that it gets you to your final destination in an efficient manner and doesn't have you going down every side street like gps devices I have had before.
Summary: Took my first long trip into unknown territory with the product and it performed well. I'm still learning the features, most notably I haven't figured out how to access/use the traffic information. I haven't figured out how to cancel an intermediate stop along my main route without cancelling the main route too. I don't know if there is a way. Voice interface is very handy to use, both before departing and especially while driving.
Summary: Easy to use, I really like the voice command feature. The Bluetooth is my only complaint so far, I have not been able to find a way of increasing the volume of the phone feature, and it does not have sufficient volume to talk comfortably. We will be using it for a 1800 mile trip next week, so I will be better able to evaluate it after the trip.
