51 Garmin Nuivi 2595 Great navigation features Less than stellar voice recognition
7
52 dietrichroland Garmin Nuvi 2350 It has been a life save at times, it's usually quick to find places I need to go. The touchscreen could be better, sometimes it doesn't respond to my touches. 7
53 chris_in_exile Garmin Nuvi 2595 Doesn't crash and I like the display format POIs are buried deep in the menus 6
54 chen2601 Garmin Nuvi 1240 - reliable
- accurate
- easy to use
- no online traffic data 7
55 bernie.n.allen Garmin nuvi 760 Good Maps - lifetime European Map updates
Good size screen and very clear.
Has a transmitter for playing music and voice through radio.
Has Bluetooth for hands free mobile connection.
Maps are fairly standard (older GPS) No updates on the go - have to connect to a PC. Aerial for traffic attached to charging cable. Can be slow on start up Limited storage - needs additional memory card. 5
56 williamh Garmin 2797 LMT Very good Voice Commands Lack of Freeway signs during navigation 7
57 djdennyray Garmin nuvi65LMT Trip Planning!
Easy connection to windshield!
Ability to add files and icons.
Can't locate state roads, county roads or interstate highways in search engine without an address. (Very bad) No voice command. 7
58 lewis.terri Garmin 42LM Size is good for carrying around Maps have poi data - it is accessed when I do a POI lookup. Why can't the device use that data to show icons on the map? 7
59 cobish2 garmin nuvi 1200 3790t Portable, reliable, easy to use and quite cheap....
better, slim, ease of use,more utilities...
no lane assist lol very delicate do not drop!!! 6
60 Greg2561 Garmin Nuvi 2595 LMT Nuvi's have been the easiest to use for me. Used to have external antenna ports but now they don't. 8
61 chris.handyman.nz Garmin NAV4 BMW motorcycle specific GPS Cannot create custom POI's on the device Cannot manage POI's or alerts on the device Can be hard to read when mounted on motorcycle 6
62 deb.gar Garmin RV 760 LMT Overall Great - Love the 7 inch Screen, Smart phone Bluetooth for hands free and smart Apps, and built in POIs for RV Garmin Mapping Software - Base camp - its complicated 8
63 tom-GDT-GPS Garmin Montana 600 Rugged perfect for bikes Software a bit limited 7
64 bjambo Garmin GPS Map 62S & Nuvi 215W GPS Map 62S is very versatile as it can be used in a vehicle on 12Vdc or hand held running on internal AA batteries. It is also quite robust. The fluxgate compass is quite handy too. GPS Map 62S has a rubber encased case which tends to disintegrate. It also lacks a screen that is visible in bright sunlight. 6
65 ceco2884 garmin560lmt good device for truckers sometimes recalculates unnecessary deviations in the last minute  
66 adrianeli4 Garmin Nuvi 2689LMT Big screen, fast start, fast routing Voice command - for me it works one in about four tries, and I have to mute the radio. 7
67 osbornespain4 Garmin Nuvi 3760 Good clean design - great features Pedestrian battery life not very good. 7
68 reinhard.kunz Garmin Camper 760 LMT-D well built, good screen size. :) Garmin Express ( PC and Mac) still in infancy stage :( 7
69 scottph59 Garmin GPS 60Cx / Foretrex 301 I like the 60Cx due to the larger screen. I owned a Garmin Legend for many years and that screen was small and hard to read. Wanted the larger screen for Geocaching. Also use the Foretrex 301 when I fly and walk. It is a nice small unit and easy to use and send POI information. I have no remarks for weaknesses for either of these devices. The 60Cx was a big upgrade for me. 9
70 j.mckillop Garmin Nuvi 1390 I've been using this sat nav for some 3 years now and have had no issues. Also use as hands free for mobile. Cannot set vehicle to truck 6
71 jirton.gillard Garmin Nuvi 2508LMT-D Quick to lock-on to satellites. Good battery life when detached from charger. Free updates make it good value. (Initial impressions as have only had it for a few weeks) Not as easy to operate as my old Tomtom OneXL. Software does not allow you to operate it when connected to a PC. 6
72 nexxus007 GARMIN nuvi2455 - Live traffic
- Lifetime maps
- Lane assist
- Traffic should be more frequent - Device is a bit slow 7
73 buchanan72 Garmin nuvi 3597 Voice Command, easy to use.
overall very good
has no over speed alarm, and can't view your route in text. 7
74 e.polstra4 Garmin Nuvi 2548 LTM D Digital Radio recieven (DAB) is Good
The color of the navigation maps 6
75 boselecta321 GARMIN NUVI 3598 Very stylish good UI Voice commands a bit hit and miss 7
76 glennwongtc Garmin nuvi 2455LMT Live traffic updates are very accurate. Can be slow in locating satellites. 7
77 derzonj Garmin NUVI 2597 New device, so far very straightforward and easy to use. Particularly like the sleep feature, no more waiting for the thing to fire up. Took me a while to figure out un-mounting it from the dash holder, but now that I've got it figured, it comes off easy. 9
78 timothywarren13 Garmin Nuvi 154LMT Great for use in Europe, vizualization Voice direction and pronunciation isn't great 8
79 peterfdavies4 Garmin Can use non-standard maps. Difficulty running in car with non-Garmin USB cable when original cable damaged 8
80 glennostler Garmin Nuvi 1410 Does what it says on the tin.... Better graphics would be a help 6
81 leorobles Garmin Nuvi 2597lmt Start up is quick; telling which lane to be on when exiting a freeway; showing you a picture of your exit sign; free updates I don't like the fact that the auto zoom function really doesn't do anything when disabled. It zooms out too much but doesn't zoom back in where I would like it. Driving through a city and having it zoomed out is not a good thing. 8
82 malleecat garmin nuvi 2689lmt ability to install 3 party maps needs audiable alerts for over speeding, big let down 8
83 notbhavn Garmin Continual aftermarket support Maps are very very expensive. 6
84 georgedaniel_20004 Garmin nuvi 2495 Realtime traffic
Voice control
Smartlink to Android
External aux connection not available 7
85 peteobyrne Garmin Nuvi 52 Good overall coverage. Cheap. Easy to follow. Some maps are definitely out of date and updated maps only come through infrequently. 6
86 isa_4 Garmin GPSMap78 Easy to use, has a Memory card for backup, good accuracy, portable. Touch screen would be awesome. 7
87 herveybay.qld Garmin 2597LMT Good clear sound quality Voice search results pronounce St. as Saint instead of street , e.g. Did you mean 123 Main Saint ? 6
88 iengle4 Garmin Zumo550, multiple Nuvi's Zumo, waterproof, M/C friendly screen visibility in sunlight 6
89 pavlo.deneka Garmin This is perfect device for home No speed Cameras and Red light cameras 9
90 lummis Garmin nuvi 2569LMT-D Only just purchased but lifetime maps and digital traffic sold it to me. Indicator in top left hand corner for next turning could be slightly larger. 7
91 DNX719VHD Garmin Kenwood DNX719vhd built in to the vw specific Kenwood 719vhd radio, works great, use it all the time. Beat my sisters device by 20 minutes at a recent family reunion where neither of us knew the way, Garmin ~40 mins, sisters route on another device ~60 minutes traffic warnings often a day late. Sittting in bumper to bumper, warning traffic ahead it says....No probs, not necessarily Garmins fault but I wish it would more proactively monitor the route it suggests, looking at the whole route instead of whats immediately ahead of you. (to be fair i am not sure any do this) But I do know others are way more on top of traffic and stuff... 8
92 pepsimaxmjs Garmin Nuvi 2545LM Very good. Logical, fast screen response. Good mapping and traffic settings. Takes you down very narrow country roads too often... 7
93 amormortis garmin nuvi t660 good navigation, sometimes a few problems but very reliable. Sometimes it tries to take a route you would not want to because it's longer or a bigger hastle. 8
94 lowrider0308 Garmin Nuvi 1350LMT Lifetime traffic and maps was the best part of this gps. Not a lot of support from Garmin. 7
95 greenforest Garmin Large display, lane guidance Poor voice recognition 7
96 sampsonb Garmin Zumo 220 Great multi-purpose biker friendly GPS Touch Screen sensitivity, Lack of Dashboard customisation options 7
97 miles.nelson Garmin 2597 LMT Lifetime maps and photo realistic junctions Screen clarity is not as crisp as it could be 7
98 paulmorris764 Garmin nuvi 50 Easy to set destination
User friendly
Simple to use
Unable to set way points Cannot set your own route 6
99 nakitechno Garmin Nuvi 1490, 50, 2597, 3595 Nuvi are versitile, easy to make maps for, solid GPS units As models develop it is frustrating that they loose functionality that you have used or developed in various bits of software 6
100 jonmy7 Garmin 660LM Robust, easy to use with gloves on, MP3 player, syncs with mobile (bluetooth). Good mounting brackets. Too many button pushes for some functions. Expensive. 7
