Summary: This unit was great - up until the time it failed. Not only did it fail, but it was non-repairable. And my significant investment in lifetime maps went right down the drain with it. The only bright spot is that Garmin gave me a discount on a new one. 2965LMT...which I love.
Summary: Tiene un gran problema con los detalles del mapa, y que en las opciones de detalles solo da opcion alta, esta opcion no permite ver todos los detalles de las vias y edificaciones mientras se conduce gran problema de esta unidad....
Summary: At the time of this writing, this device has a customer rating on Amazon of only 3 stars, so I doubt anyone would buy this piece of junk. It did not work well from the beginning. I mistakenly thought that when the manufacturer upgraded the software, that would help. After the so-called software upgrade, the device routed me in crazy ways - causing a dangerous situation.
Summary: I have always loved the hardware vs TomTom but this Garmin falls far short of what a GPS should offer - ease of finding a place or an address. Three examples: 1) Staying on vacation nr Boston and wanting to find a parking lot in Salem to see the witches. Search for points of interest, near a different city ... sounds good so far. Enter Salem and get back 19 pages with every Salem across the USA in a random order. No way to sort, filter, ....

Pros: Pretty colors! Truely no positive points. The maps Got me to Starbucks, but, when I pulled in front of it told me "make a U Turn and go 1.1 miles". It was purchased thru DELL and when I was etting it up Garmin listed my brand new GPS "discontinued"!
Cons: finally got the vehicle on the roadway after 2-3 hours of American Tech Support and a map upgrade, how does Google show which room I'm in and Garmin doesn't have the development (8 years old) and street that have here is the natives?

Pros: When the product does work, it is fairly accurate.
Cons: When 1st bought had to return 2 DOA units. Constantly search for satellite, doesn't matter if in the city or burbs. Touch sensitivity N/G. Speaker quality poor. Graphics are just OK, @ heavy intersections confusing. Battery poor/has to be plugged in.
Pros: ?Free Traffic Updates ?Fast Satellite Acquisition ?Fast Routing Engine ?Fast Rerouting ?Multi Destination Trip Planner ?Where did I park feature ?Aesthetically Pleasing ?Packed with MISC Features ?I love the aftermarket silicone dash mount
Cons: ?Unintelligent Routing Engine often needlessly takes you out of the way ?Many False traffic warnings ?No Quick Mute Feature ?inconsistent Chime or notice to turn ?Poor Multi-destination routing
