This is my third sat nav in the last 7 years, my first was one of the orginial Garmin Street Pilots which while basic was a good little unit, and my second was a top of the range Tom Tom which was the 940 live. I want to say how happy I am to come back to Garmin and although I have only owned the 2460LT for a few weeks I much prefer it over the Tom Tom which took an age to get a fix on the satellites and had a habit of switching itself off and on again. The Garmin however is very quick to find satellites, So far the voice regonizition has worked perfectly everytime I have used it, The mapping is clear and I am impressed with the 'photo real' junctions, the unit has also been very quick in re-routing when I have intentionally strayed off route. The unit, on the whole has been quick to alert me to speed cameras although it did fail to regonise a set of average speed cameras at a set of roadworks on the M1 which surprised me. As I say I have only had the 2460LT for about two weeks but I have already used it several times and apart from missing the roadwork speed cameras on one occasion it has behaved perfectly. The traffic service may not be quite as 'modern' as Tom Tom's live service and you have to stick the FM ariel to your windscreen but I have found it to be less temprimental to the Tom Tom system so far and of course there are no nasty subscriptions for the traffic service.Finally I have read a few reviews on the net where people are saying it took them a few hours on doing the first software update, I did my first update and it only took a couple of minutes so maybe I was lucky in recieving a unit that was pretty much up to date out of the box. Anyway,to summerize I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the Garmin 2460LT to anyone looking for an easy to use feature packed Sat Nav whether its your first sat nav or you've owned many before.
