Summary: I moved to PA from Colorado and needed this truckers GPS to help me at my job. However, it simply does not work as advertised. It gives false alerts when your on a road that is ok for trucks but more importantly, it directs you onto illegal bridges and low tunnels just like the car GPS. Best advise, go with the high end car GPS and be careful.
Summary: We drive a 40' motor home thus the reason for wanting this particular GPS. On the first trip we stayed off course more than on course, the unit would sometimes make turns and navigate parallel with the correct road. Most of the time we could make corrections before we got into trouble, you can't turn these rigs around in tight places, I am sure the trucker that use this unit feel the same way.
Summary: Bought this for my husband he is a trucker and we thought it would do better have not had it 3 weeks and it has quit already once just went off and stayed off for hours , dont know what happened not walmarts fault though we just purchased it here ,I see where they say Garmin 465T is the best trucker GPS i dont know about that .Garmin has some issues to work out on this. Shows weigh stations when it wants to, as well as other issues.......
Summary: If you are buying this gps to be used in a truc,stop and save your money. I have had mine for about three months now and I can't count how many times it has tried to send me down weight limited roads, under low overpasses, onto length limited roads and through residential areas. Today in Holyoke, MA I was north bound on s. canal st at main st. The nuvi wanted me to continue north and a block ahead of me I could see an 11' 6" clearance sign and just past it a 10' sign.
Summary: I bought the 465T back in July and so far I give this unit a C for trucks. The truck routing of this GPS is just horrible at times. It has routed me down dark residential side streets with low tree branches, when there was actually a truck designated route available. On several other occasions it took me off a main interstate, to throw me on a secondary highway for no particular reason, only to end up on the same interstate again.
Summary: Used for 25 days and return it,. Need a strong speaker, bigger screen. Advised don't go away , you have to manually press ok. PA Turnpike (70 & 76) where they run together!! for this one are two roads,(1 next to the other). Not a problem in car mode. We still need Pause option on gps., We need to fuel, breaks, restrooms..etc. but gps keep....turn around , and you have to cancel o shut it off. Get the Street Pilot 7200 and happy with it.
Summary: This is my 4th Garmin GPS, and it rather falls short. Over all it appears to work quite well, though the major flaw is that it will turn itself OFF in some area's if u make a wrong turn. Rather like it get's confused and turns off to reset. I have had it do this 6 times in a row with out warning. It will start back up and sometime restart where u left off. The unit I have now is the 2nd 465T, so it is a flaw with the software not the hardware.
Summary: have to agree with above review. GPS functions great but just cannot hear ANY messages over the background noise while going down the road. also the truck specific poi are missing a lot of locations, at least around where i live. UPDATE:09/2009 4 stars not 2 old nuvi660 is about dead so decided to give nuvi465t another try. volume seems to be a little louder on this unit but still not as loud as the 660.
garmin nuvi 465t uno dei peggiori acquisti che ho fatto

Excerpt: il navigatore presenta notevoli difetti di navigazione non calcola con logica i percorsi, fa fare anche parecchia strada in più. molte strade con divieti per autocarri non le ha, mentre altre che non sono vietate per lui lo sono. tmc inservibile nel sens ...
Cons: costoso . non affidabile . quasi inservibile
