Switches from Counrty to Country easly, just returned from Switzerland and France, reasonable value you get what you pay for

Not accurate, notifies after event, voice names not pronouunced in language of country, french should be french not english accent, trip route not the best, but gets you near there. size of screen not as advertised a bit smaller

Garmin nüvi 2545LMT

 

Some good features, eg where am I, estimated time of arrival.

Preferences not so good, i want to indicate if I prefer motorway or not, avoid certain places. Mapping is suspect, tried taking me down a road in France that was restricted exit. Too many white roads that were v narrow. Does not show the road you are...

Good large display, easy to read. The lane change option is very useful especially in busy area's. A good buy, at least so far although I haven't used it very much yet.

So far, none.
