"Lifetime Updates"? Nah.

Shopper, Amazon
21 March 2015
  • Summary: CAUTION - "Lifetime Updates?" Well, no. About 6 months ago, I started being unable to update my Nuvi 40LM. After many hours with tech support, and many hours on the computer trying to figure out the problem, I discovered that Garmin will not allow updates to a Windows XP machine.

  • Summary: I have used a previous Garmin nuvi several years very successfully, however the data had grown outdated and the price of an update approached the price of a new navigator so this seemed a good opportunity to update and upgrade at a reasonable price. Bad idea! I tried to enter my "Home" address.

JUNK

Craig "TX Aggie", Amazon
28 June 2014
  • Summary: This Garmin is the worst of four I have. It did not recognize locations that have been in my area for many decades. It made up streets that do not exist and never have been here. If you want to get lost and waste your money at the same time this is for you.

Worse routes ever

Merlin, Amazon

  • Summary: Picture this, I am trying to leave Long Island, NY to go to Washington, DC. Just got this technical marvel, plug it to my PC, update the firmware, all the maps, getting ready to go. I am not from the area so I decided to invest a few buck on a recognized brand.

  • Excerpt: Ordered it online and it was shipped to store. Picked it up without checking the box. When I got it home I noticed that the box had been opened before. The garmin was loose in the box. Tried to use it anyway but the thing was lost. Couldn't find anything. It had obviously been returned before.
  • Pros: None, None Of The Above
  • Cons: Buggy Software, Didn't Work
