Garmin nuvi 40LM

 

The Garmin nüvi 40LM is a 4.3” navigator in Garmin's new 2012 Essential series. The models in this series are meant to be basic navigators at a budget price, lower than what we've previously seen for Garmin entry-level models. Nevertheless, they do...

No powered mount ; Cannot add a traffic receiver ; Can only hide Trip Log; cannot clear it without resorting to a hard reset ; Only includes maps of 48 states (although a version that adds Alaska, Hawaii and Canada is also available)

Highly recommended. This is without a doubt the best entry level navigator Garmin has ever released. It has a generous 4.3” wide screen along with features previously restricted to mid-range units. You can't hardly go wrong with this one.

Useless! Get something else or use a phone

 

The touchscreen works well

And you're gonna need it, because it doesn't have voice recognition for spoken destinations. I knew about that, but thought that it wouldn't be that much of problem, until I found myself having to pull over somewhere to type in a new destination. Get...

Men never ask for directions!

 

I never ask for directions and when things go wrong, the wife lets me know. With this she can enter the information and keep her entertained. Should of bought one a long time ago.

My First GPS

 

It was fully charged right out of the box. Easy to link and set up with my PC. Maps updated readily, but it seems to keep wanting to do an update that doesn\'t seem to exist. Works fine otherwise. This was my first GPS, and am satisfied with the price...

No Better Than 5-Year Old Nuvi 350

 

We bought the Garmin Nuvi 40LM as an update to a still-usable Nuvi 350 whose maps were woefully out of date. Buying a new GPS was only slightly more expensive than purchasing a map update from Garmin for the old unit. The Nuvi 40LM works about as well...

Good upgrade from nuvi 205

 

After reading all the reviews, I was a bit worried when I got the nuvi 40LM as a gift. But after a test run home & a trip to Baltimore, MD, it got my to the desired destination without any major problems. Good GPS for the first time buyer, or someone...

Large screen ; Bright screen ; Clear voice directions ; Split screen at major intersections

Battery live can be a bit longer ; Screen sometimes is slow to refresh ; Question it's logic on the routes is sends me on ; Touchpad doesn't always work on the first try

Works just fine

 

I\'ve used this product for only a few days; so far it\'s great. However, my only previous GPS experience is with a very old (10+ years old) unit, so I may be easily impressed. The only minor weakness I see is that the electronic voice is sometimes not...
