Summary: 6-25-14 -- My Garmin Nuvi 40 came with minimal instructions, and the online manual was no help at all. (Customer answers were more helpful.) Once you get into the unit, the setup is very user-friendly, but getting there was no fun. (1) How do you charge the unit?

Summary: My wife and I resisted getting a satnav for many years as we're quite competent with maps and a Google print can always be taken along for the detail. However, we'd borrowed a Tom-Tom on a couple of occasions and been quite impressed.
Summary: I have had this for approximately 3 weeks. The peculiar and unnatural pronunciation of names such as Reading and Malmesbury makes it appear amateurish, and it could be confusing in an unfamiliar part of the country, or to someone for whom English is not their first language.
