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.

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.

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.

Works great for my needs

 

It doesn't have the calculator and some other features my nuvi 205 had. But I didn't really use them anyway. I mainly like the lifetime map upates and street name being spoken the best. I paid less for this than Garmin wanted for an update on my 205.
