All the way UK to Verona, 27 Feb. 2013
I bought a Garmin 2445 4.3 in Aug 2012 for a driving trip from SW UK to Verona, Italy thru France, Belgium, Germany & Austria with overnite stops in France, Germany and Austria. Pre-programmed all the stops before starting out with pin point accuracy using European postcodes which were all dead easy to find in the pre-loaded W European maps. The journey was a breeze with this device even taking me direct to my hotel in the historic centre of Verona thru a maze of narrow madieval streets. Couple of small critisms 1) Occassionally when navigating the maps disappear and I have to reboot the device. 2) Occassionally takes you down some very narrow lanes. On one occassion taking me off an A class road along what I can only describe as a rough farm track only to rejoin the A road about half a mile further on. 3) The traffic data is a bit rubbish but I suppose thats the limitation of the FM data. 4) Get the SDHC card as on one update all the maps wouldn't fit. 5) The lifetime map updates are excellent but watch out, you have to pay for safety camera updates. All in all though a definite must have.
