Summary: its a good gps for the money. remember to update. we went on vacation and some addresses were not coming through, but we had our phones and google is awesome with navigation. that sure came in handy in nyc!! google gives alternate routes when traffic is afoot.
Summary: Just got home from a trip to and through the the Denver Co area with lots of confusing roads. This garmin nuvi 44lm worked well in almost all situations with the exception of a couple of times when it couldn't seem to load information quickly enough. BUT, we would have been completely lost and frustrated had we not had it with us. I would purchase again and I would recommend to a friend.
Summary: Works quite well. Only issue is the instruction might say take highway X North when the exit says Highway x North and South. When you are on the exit ramp it will tell you to take Highway x south which means you have to change lanes quickly.
Summary: This is my 4th Garmin. They get better with every new product release. I have had one stolen and lost another. The one feature that is missing on the new units is the security code. The older units could be set up so you had to enter a 4 digits password to use the unit. They don't offer that feature anymore. I liked that feature and wish they would put it on all units that is why it gets 4 stars.
Summary: This replaced a pretty old model Garmin GPS and I know wish I had not waited so long to move up! This GPS is very easy to use and fit perfectly with the dashboard base we already had. I like the new (to me) feature that shows upcoming turning lane sets and which "arrows" are the correct lanes to be in. This is a very good basic GPS.
Summary: Used the gps successfully in a city unknown to me. I found the easy to set up and understand operating procedures. The touch screen sensitivity needs work. I found the icons at the bottom of the screen difficult requiring several attempts to activate due to the plastic frame around the unit. However aside from this problem the unit performed well giving accurate information.
