Garmin nüvi 40

 

Garmin's new 2012 line of GPS devices leads off with what the manufacturer calls its "Essential" series of entry-level navigation devices. By "Essential," Garmin means everything you need to get from point Alpha to Bravo. Things that you need include...

The Garmin Nuvi 50 features a large screen and an easy-to-use and easy-to-understand interface. Text-to-speech-spoken street names and colorful maps also aid user friendliness.

Text and graphics appear pixelated upon closer inspection. The dashboard mounting disc and USB sync cable are not included in the box.

Garmin's formula for entry-level GPS devices doesn't change much with the new Nuvi 50, but small tweaks, a lower price, and a massive screen enhance value.

Garmin GPS a winner

 

Love it. It's easy to use, easy to mount on the dash, and easy to hide when not in use. Overall, a really good purchase. With the updateable feature, we'll be "good to go" for years.

just great

 

Easy, straightforward user interface. Works very well. I don't know if this is the norm with gps units, but it constantly adjusted the route when I chose to go a different way instead of making me go back to the predetermined route. Excellent.

Terrific GPS!!!

 

We love our Garmin Nuvi 40LM! Our previous model didn't speak street names and didn't have map updates without having to pay for them.
