Summary: Odd navigation quirks, will often take me on completely different routes to and from a destination. Will insist on getting on the interstate in the middle of rush hour traffic just to go one mile then back off on the next exit. Can take odd routes to avoid left turns, sometimes adding 1-2 miles to the route just to avoid an easy left turn at a traffic light.
Summary: I'll give it a two because it might be very good when it works. Mine did not. Discovered after the ordeal of installing their sub-par Garmin Express software that takes forever to load, obstructs internet access on the machine it's installed on, and doesn't recognize the device when plugged in. Screw it, my GPS on my phone works just fine, I'll stick with that.
4 stars only because I was disappointed with the 'Traffic' feature

Summary: 4 stars only because I was disappointed with the 'Traffic' feature. Wish I hadn't bothered with that. Not as useful as I had thought. We haven't used it that much yet but it seems to be working as it is supposed to work. Time will tell. I wish I had gotten the 52LM or the 55LM instead.
Summary: This is an easy to use, and very accurate GPS which gives you tips, directions etc. before you have to react to stay on the correct road, lane etc. I really like the Free Lifetime Map Update feature. I had an older Garmin GPS which was lost in an auto fire. From my experience with it, choosing another Garmin was only way to go.
