Summary: I bought this unit with intent to use it for its truck features, mind you I also have the nuvi 855. I am glad I did not sell my 855. There is so much worng with the 465. 1) It could not take the full map update because of lack of memory. 2)The touch interface is garbage when you press a specific letter the letter to the right is whats selected.
Updated review April 2014. Latest unit updates dangerous for trucks.

Summary: I've traveled the USA for many years. When I use any GPS, I know to double check the route. Pick your favorite paper or electronic map and it will have flaws. It doesn't matter who puts the map or mapping software out. Count on errors. Having said that, I have used a couple of Tom-Tom car GPS units, which I consider useless, and a Garmin car GPS unit. Before that I used a laptop along with Delorme Street Atlas and their plug-in GPS unit.
Summary: I got this GPS in December.very happy when I got this product.I am a truck driver and i used this product every day ,driving local in Chicago area. A lot of miscalculations from this product. Here are some.55 north or south get on ramp (171 -ARCHER AVE.)the gps is telling me that the road in restricted for trucks,then is telling me to do a lot of U turns because IT doesn't see the address ,and i'm right there in front of the company.speed limit is posted always for cars...
Summary: I was very excited to receive my GPS. It seemed to work fine for the first part of my trip. Then it started to flash and fade. It finally went out. Since I am a truck driver, I depend on the GPS to help me find pick ups and deliveries. I get home every 5-6 weeks and it is taking me a long time to go through the exchange process with Garmin. I will not buy another product from this person.
Summary: We really wanted this GPS to be accurate. We tried it on surrounding interstates, residential areas, roads with low clearance's, fuel stops, local attractions, and places to eat. It helped to have previously owned a GPS that had a Bus setting. We were using our SUV with the Truck Setting. We put in the exact measurements of our motorhome/Bus.
Summary: Ease of use is good!! But, I was going south on I-94 in Chicago & it told me to exit the highway then get back on at the same exit (more than once on the wide side of the turn so it would not have even saved feet). I pulled up to a left turn in Reno then it told me to go the long way around the block back to where I was & go straight??? You only get 1 update so don't buy an old used one. My Sprint phone works way better & I need smaller grains of salt!!
I don`t like this gps at all it loooks broken sometimes

Summary: This unit was purchased from Amazon and filled by J&R. First of all the purchase and delivery went fine, BUT since 2/2010 have had to have 2 relacements and now the 3rd unit has died. J&R asked asked for a review, but when it was negative they didn't post it on their website. I have no problems with the features or functionality of the device, I have another 2yr old Garmin I keep having to go back to.
