Maps are great, hope you never need to update it.

  • Summary: It works great, love the features. What I hate is it's failure to update. It tells me over and over that it needs to update, but when I plug into the Garmin site and use the program, it fails to do so. I have seen this complaint from many other people as well.

Simple, yet reliable source of navigation

  • Summary: We purchased this GPS navigator when I didn't have a smartphone, as I'm horrible with directions and notorious for getting lost. It appears like the product has since been discontinued by the manufacturer. This nav is pretty basic, moderate-sized, and easy to use.

Ships in demo mode - no instructions

  • Summary: I've never been impressed by Garmin's product documentation but now they've just given up completely. There's no documentation for this GPS system other than some extremely small HTML pages built into the product that simply state the obvious for the most part.

  • 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?

Garmin GPS, nuvi 40

That Delaware Guy, Amazon
16 June 2012
  • Summary: Bought this based on friend's recommendations for Garmin products; the lower priced unit for a 2nd car. Does not have the features of a comparatively priced Magellan 2035. It's adequate but you better know where you're going as it guides you well off the beaten path to eventually find your...
