Lousy Algorithm

Ken O., Amazon
6 September 2014
  • Summary: Direction algorithm in this GPS is atrocious. Needed to catch a flight & return a rental car in JFK in 4 hours from Newark. Against all logic, this GPS takes me through Lincoln Tunnel and Time Square at closing time on a week day.

Didn't work

Mombatt, Staples
13 February 2014
  • Summary: 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.

  • Summary: We were going to a frequently visited local spot and decided to try out the Garmin 40LM GPS. We were travelling on a local road and know directions well (50 yrs) and Garmin said to turn right on route 417 west.

This is a CRAP! No Better Than a Free GPS APP.

Luling Zhang, Amazon
28 September 2013
  • Summary: The reason I need a GPS because the FREE GPS APP in iphone can't guide me to my destination. This Garmin GPS unit sells for $140, but it only performance $10 better than a free APP.

GPS shouldn't have these type problems

rjm, Staples
19 July 2013
  • Summary: I was a TomTom user for a number of years, so am familiar with GPS usage. This one has, on at least four occassions, sent me in totally wrong, without question, directions in the 8-10 times I have used it after recent purchase.

Near useless.

C Babe, Amazon
7 July 2013
  • Summary: Pros... well I like the picture in picture screen that shows you what the exit looks like is cool. Cons - product unreliable. Product keeps resetting itself and re asking to hit the agree button. Some days it happens once on the drive home, some days 5 times.

RJM, Staples
20 June 2013
  • Summary: Note: 2012 Garmin 40LM Would give nonsense directions on 3of 5 times using it. Once it told me go .2 miles "off Road" when I was on route 322. It told me after a few hundred feet to do a "U Turn" which I did.

I hate it!

Livery lady, Staples
14 June 2013
  • Summary: I am a livery driver - this is my third Garmin (they only last about a year!). I hate it....it gives directions that send me all over the place to get from one point to a short distance away. Also doesn't say "recalculating" so I know I've taken a wrong turn. I brought it back!
