Garmin nuvi 2475LT GPS receiver


In my review of the Garmin Nuvi 50 (Essential Series), I stated that Garmin's interface for its entry-level portable navigation devices hasn't changed much over the last decade. So color me surprised when, upon booting up the Garmin Nuvi 2495LMT, I was...

The Garmin Nuvi 2495LMT 's updated interface makes searching for destinations and navigation both faster and more precise. Garmin's truly hands-free voice command system is one of the best in the portable navigation business. Lifetime map and traffic...

The Bluetooth connection doesn't sync with a phone's address book. Slow map rendering hinders overall performance.

With its improved interface, the Garmin Nuvi 2495LMT (Advanced Series) is as easy to use as earlier models, while offering a good blend of advanced features at a reasonable price.

Garmin nuvi 2475LT


The Garmin nüvi 2475LT is the sole trans-Atlantic model in Garmin's 2012 nuvi Advanced series. One of the more significant refreshes in recent years, the Advanced series adds several new customization options, improved search functionality and Exit...

Preloaded maps of Europe and North America ; Strong customization options ; Exit services ; Lifetime traffic ; Excellent Bluetooth sound quality ; POIs can be displayed on the map ; Offers several choices of routes ; Extensive junction view and lane...

Traffic is ad-supported and is beginning to get more intrusive with coupon icons appearing on the map screen when moving ; No powered mount ; Slight lag in menu responsiveness

Highly recommended. Even with my love of powered mounts (missing here), the nuvi Advanced series rocks. New (and very useful) customization options, exit services and choices of routes will tempt many nuvi owners to upgrade. It looks like Garmin has...

Garmin nuvi 2475LT Automobile Portable GPS Navigator


Much more difficult to program and use than my earlier Nuvi 350..I would rather have the features of the 350 than the way this one works, but the maps and accuracy is great.Overall, I would give this product an 8 out of 10.

Accurate mapping and world wide maps

On off button is a little difficult and the way to save a current location is a little difficult.I also do not like when you arrive at address--it does not say arriving address on the right or left -it just says arriving and you have to look for it
