A great little gadget!,
This review is from: Garmin Nuvi 2240 3.5" Sat Nav with UK and Western Europe Maps (24 Countries) (Electronics)
Actually bought this sat nav + Garmin City Navigator North America NT 2011 Map Update Micro/SD Card for a probably (but, hopefully not!) one off trip to Florida with the family in April 2011. The idea was to get a reasonably priced sat nav for home/european use and to adapt it for use in the US. The cost of hiring a sat nav with your hire car/van in the US is almost the same cost and you have nothing to show for it when your finished. So, we thought it was a good idea.
I have to say that it was/is a dream to use in both the UK and the US. Another reviewer mentioned the way road numbers are, as it were, spoken in full eg. A123 would be given as "A one hundred and twenty three" but, you soon get used to it. Apart from that and bearing in mind that it is priced towards the 'lower end' of the sat nav market it does exactly what was expected in that it gets you from A to B - no problem. If you miss a turn then it quickly "re-calculates" you back on track. OK, the display is not the all singing and dancing with trees and road signs like some 'top end' sat navs but hey, what are you supposed to be doing here, driving a vehicle or watching the tele? Oh, and try downloading exact location co-ordinates from the Satellite Signals website to get spot on locations.
