A Helping Hand on Unfamiliar Roads

nüvi 2440's PhotoReal junction view provides a realistic reproduction of road signs and junctions along your route, with stunning landscape detail for exceptional clarity down to the exact trees and pylons! With Lane Assist, there's no more guessing which lane you need to be in at upcoming exits and junctions, with arrows that indicate the proper lane for navigation.

See Even More

It's easy to see where you're going on nüvi 2440's 5-inch (12.7 cm) touchscreen display. View map detail, driving directions, photos and more in bright, brilliant colour. With its big, bold display, you won't miss a thing.

Plan Ahead

nüvi 2440 includes advanced navigation features to take the worry out of travelling. With route planning you can save 100 routes, specify via points and preview simulated turns on the large screen. In addition, nüvi 2440 automatically sorts multiple destinations to provide an efficient route for errands, deliveries or sales calls. A trip log provides an electronic bread crumb trail of up to 10,000 points, so you can see where you've been on the map.

Unique Speed Cameras

Garmin's unique Cyclops speed cameras are built in, giving real-time, reliable and accurate alerts, overspeed warning and speed limit information as you approach one of hundreds of fixed, mobile, variable limit and temporary safety cameras. New or moved cameras are constantly tracked and the central database is updated by Cyclops daily. nüvi 2440 also contains speed limits for all major routes plus Garmin's new speed limit reporting, which enables you to manually correct / update speed limit information and share any changes via USB.

Find Fuel-efficient Routes

nüvi 2440 saves you fuel and money with ecoRoute - Garmin's innovative green feature that calculates the most fuel-efficient route, tracks fuel usage and more. You can choose to take the "less fuel" option as a routing preference and when selected, nüvi will determine if a more fuel efficient route exists based upon road speed data and vehicle acceleration data. ecoRoute helps you develop more efficient driving habits, calculates trip cost and enables accurate expense reporting too.

Get Turn-by-Turn Directions

nüvi 2440 has an intuitive interface that greets you with two simple questions: "Where To?" and "View Map." Touch the super-wide colour screen to easily look up addresses and services and get voice-prompted, turn-by-turn directions with spoken street names for extra route awareness with no need to look at the sat nav screen. Garmin's new Trip Planner feature provides a multi-route preview so you can visually compare the available routes before selecting your preferred journey.

Navigation is just the beginning. nüvi 2440 features many travel tools, including JPEG picture viewer, world travel clock with time zones, currency converter, measurement converter, calculator and more.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Sat Nav 13 Nov 2011
    By John
    Model:nüvi 2440 - UK and Western Europe
    We bought this after talking to a few people and used it for the first time to travel from France down through Italy, across Scily and all over Malta. It did not falter once. It was in short the best sat nav I have used. Much better then my previous Tom Tom.

    5.0 out of 5 stars At Last - One That Is Really Good 4 July 2011
    By Kenny M
    Model:nüvi 2440 - UK and Western Europe|Verified Purchase
    I have tried several of the new Garmins but this one best fits the bill for me. It has most of the advanced SatNav features of the new range of Garmins at a reasonable price. However, note it doesn't have Traffic info (which can be added as an extra but which has its pit-falls anyway - see other reviews) and this means the power cable for in-car use is slimmer, neater and much less intrusive.
    This model works well and does not suffer from the somewhat quirky on/off switch of some of the other new models. It has the larger 5 inch screen and the one supplied to me by Amazon is free of the scratch marks and strange patterns that I noticed under the screen of some other new Garmins. Also, again unlike some others, it came free of any software issues which meant it connected to my PC first time and downloading updates has been straightforward.
    So, if you want a good all-round SatNav free of the frills of traffic info and live data (which you can get live from any smartphone without the same subscription fee), then this is definitely one you should seriously consider.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Effective system 25 Jun 2011
    By gt9971a
    Model:nüvi 2440 - UK and Western Europe|Verified Purchase
    Pros -

    1. Easy to use
    2. Good to use around London (haven't tried it beyond that but I imagine it's just as good)
    3. Bright screen with good instructions for navigation
    4. No software issues (yet); no resets so far after using for a month
    3. Seems to be build well

    Cons -

    1. Does not re-navigate fast enough -- can be a little annoying when you need to get your bearings fast enough
    2. May not provide the best route -- however this I've found to be a problem generally with most systems and even google maps. I still think you need to know your bearings by using a Collins map finder (very cheap and worth it in my opinion)
    3. Does not have options to avoid for e.g. "A routes" or something similar

    Overall, for the price I am very satisfied with the device. The fittings and look are very nice.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Good price and performance 17 Sep 2012
    Model:nüvi 2440 - UK and Western Europe|Verified Purchase
    I've got a 5 year old Garmin Nuvi that has given excellent service but has outdated maps now (and map upgrades are ridiculously expensive) so I bought this. It has European maps and its performance is A1, my elderly in-laws have been able to master it without problems.

    3.0 out of 5 stars Tends to take strange routes 12 Jan 2013
    By Comrie
    Model:nüvi 2440 - UK and Western Europe|Verified Purchase
    The device is relatively easy to use. The suction cup that affixes the stand for the device will not stay adhered to a smmoth plastic dashboard and fall off at most inconvenient times.
    The problem we have had is the device sets out routes that take you on all manner of small B and unclassified roads when a good and faster route using "A" and other main roads is available. It appears it selects a route a drunken crow would fly, but not of much use for a car. In Hampshire it took us in circles looking for a B road and we resorted to a simple AA map to get us to our destination. It would be helpful if the device gave you a clear picture of the route it proposes before setting off.

    Having used a Tom Tom before, I am tempted to give the Garmin away and buy another Tom Tom

    5.0 out of 5 stars Best trip investment I ever made 15 July 2012
    Model:nüvi 2440 - UK and Western Europe|Verified Purchase
    Garmin SatNav was accurate, easy to use, and made my travels a delight. What the Amazon description didn't tell me was that the Garmin included the power cord to the car lighter and the windscreen mount. So no additional accessories needed to be purchased.

    3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing 13 Jun 2012
    Model:nüvi 2440 - UK and Western Europe|Verified Purchase
    I bought this to replace an old Tom Tom. I was surprised how easier the Tom Tom was to use than this model. The information on the screen is limited and you have to choose between options instead of having them all. The instructions can be very late leaving little time to respond.The major problem I have is the inability to recognise some post codes. I have even gone to the trouble of putting these into my old sat nav and with this, it was fine.
    I was hoping that after 6 years since I bought the previos one, performance would have improved

    4.0 out of 5 stars Simple to use 14 May 2012
    Model:nüvi 2440 - UK and Western Europe|Verified Purchase
    My prior satnav experience was limited to 5 days visiting 15 different addresses in France with a TomTom and it simplified the process enormously. This Garmin was the best price bargain at under £100 and seems to work very well, easy to programme, easy to charge and a pleasure to follow the vocal instructions. The screen mount is excellent and very easy to use since one doesn't have to connect/disconnect the power cable.
    I am very pleased with the purchase.
