Summary: I've used several gps units over the years, and the best have been refurbished Garmins. Seems like they iron out most of the kinks when they re-do them, and this one's no exception. The only real issue is the lag time of the map and street names changing as you drive.
Summary: I've had this unit for slightly less than 5 months and can say, while slick, it's less than perfect. While it is reliable most of the time, that I love being able to talk to it whilst cruising down the highway and it worked like a champ during my recent trip to Alaska, it does have a few issues.
More memory and voice command make this a reasonable improvement

Summary: In 2013, I bought the Nuvi 50LMT. It bricked out and could not be used. I tried a second unit which could not update the US maps due to lack of memory in the unit. Luckily I was able to return both units. In 2014, I decided to try this unit.
Summary: i love everything about this unit but, i would like to hear a little more volume. if you're driving with the radio on, it's hard to hear what's coming up. everything else seems to be well thought out.
Summary: Pros: voice commands, lifetime maps, traffic updates, bluetooth sync with phone Cons: no navigation to phone contacts, bluetooth app extras cost money, proprietary cable. should have just been usb Model Number: Garmin nuvi 2495LMTHD (note the "HD") I purchased this for my Lotus Esprit since it only...
Summary: I really love all of the features on this Garmin, but as a previous owner of a Garmin, I have a few little gripes with this model. I'd still buy it again, but that being said, if you are exceeding the speed limit, your current speed changes the color red, which at night, is muddy, and difficult to...
Summary: Overall the 2495 is a very good unit. It replaced a Garmin GPS V portable unit. The speed of satellite acquisition has improved, along with speed of display updating. Have the traffic updates has been nice during rush hour commutes.
Great product...but for some reason it died early :(

Summary: I had been using this Garmin product for the last 8 months and had absolutely loved it! It was a dream to use - simply put - it was perfect. I had purchased the Italy/Greece sim card for it and it was performing fantastically (except for a few little glitches in the pronunciation of the...

Summary: Very pleased. I use it for finding everything while traveling. It helps me find nearest gas in strange towns. Helps me find things to do.... Zoo, parks, hotels, libraries and much more. Traded a Magellan for this. Not disappointed. 4 stars because I haven't made time to master update.
