Good Size and Interface


Good value for money if you do not require some of the additional features such as speech recognition, Bluetooth or a high contrast screen. Good response and intuitive interface makes finding locations a snap.

Excellent GPS


As a route salesman, my GPS is a valuable tool. The Nuvi 65LM handles all of my routing needs and the large screen makes mapping to my next location easy to view. A great product!

Best value for this type GPS


I reviewed all the info on gps systems and found this the best value for the money. I purchased a nuvi 2595 for my wife a couple of years ago and she loves it. So when I needed a new gps for my truck it was a know brainer. Larger screen and better...

Over all a good GPS


Bought this for my Dad, liked that it had a large screen and the volume goes up quite loud. Does a good job but would work a little better for older folks if the Saved routes icon was a bit larger.
