Summary: I love this GPS and would never own a different brand - once you get used to this GPS you will never be without it on the road. The only thing I don't like is that when I bought mine - there was no unlimited map updates included for the purchase at that time - so that means every few years I have to pay extra for the newest map updates (not fair) especially that now when you buy a new trucker model Garmin GPS - it includes free lifetime map upgrades - and I must pay for...
Summary: the garmin wasn't brand new like I was told it had been registered since 2010 so I couldn't down load the maps with out paying 89.00 I have had it it a month and its not perfect but what is but it will do in a pinch wont be buying nothing electronic off ebay again
Summary: I brought the garmin gps because im a trucker thats delivers fuel additive to costco fuel stations and have to get routes and directions on my own .what i love about the nuvi t465 is the hazmat route and truck restriction route to assist you routeing to some stores located in some residence communitys.what i dont like about the nuvi t465 is that some highways are merged sometimes is not clear which highway to take which can cause you to get alittle fix on the nuvi gps...
Summary: This GPS is great for the RV owner. It can be programed with your RV's dimensions for avoidance of low clearances and sharp turns. It is a very good value for all that it can do. In the past we have been guided by our GPS systems onto dirt roads, under bridges with 12 foot clearances and into tight city roads. With this unit, these problems are eliminated. The only negative would be the small screen.
Summary: My hubby likes this GPS. He is a professional truck driver and so far has had no issues with not being able to get to locations. I did a lot of research prior to purchasing this product and this was my final choice. It was a little more expensive than other truck driver models out there but I didnt mind spending the money based on the consumer feedback.
Summary: The nuvi 465T does not come with an operating manual. It is not as easy to navigate compared to other trucking GPS units. It does Have some interesting features like posted speed limit, however the speed limit is for cars. does not show the speed limit for trucks, where split speeds are located, such as Tennessee and Michigan. The traffic alert is a nice function when you can get a transmission. It shows most aproaching weigh stations. It shows upcoming windy roads.
Until now Garmin nuvi 465T is the best for big rigs.

Summary: There are not too many GPS receivers available in the market specifically for eighteen wheelers . I used GPS receiver by worldnev, it got lots of issues including some serious wrong directions; of course awful for a big rig driver. Compared to that, Garmin nuvi 465T is far better in all respect. It allows specifying the height, length of the truck as a whole and accordingly avoids the low bridges and also having lots of other very vital options needed for big rigs.
Summary: I use nuvi 5000 for about 4 years now - LOVE IT... I'm starving to get something like 465 T but it is to small. If 465 T software was in nuvi 5000 I would buy it today with no hesitation. Although , there is few things where Garmin makes huge mistake... The amount of Favorites in nuvi 5000 is 3000. That's not enough. 465 has only 1000 - and that is RIDICULOUS.
