This review is from: Garmin Nuvi 2340 4.3" Sat Nav with UK and Western Europe Maps (Electronics)
I bought this Garmin expecting to receive Live Traffic updates along with some good GPS Navigation features. All at a price under £150.00 ? Couldn't have worked, but I only realise it now.
Not brought from Amazon as I managed to get a better price elsewhere due to gift vouchers etc otherwise Amazon would not have been beaten on the price.
I didn't get the chance to test out the Live Traffic feature really, but seeing from what it was able to do even inside, I think the Live Link worked out of the box. I managed to get the Traffic Cameras also working. Weather conditions at the destination address all loading up just
So far so good.
But this had to go back as the fundamental feature i.e. navigation is very very poor. I ran a route demo of a few routes I was very well versed with. The worst thing is that the map disappears from the screen all together several times. At least that's what I saw happening in the demo. And it appeared even worse in 2D mode.
If you want to add more information on the map i.e. ETA, EDA etc ... about 20% of the horizontal resolution gets used up !!! Why not simply use smaller font and have the info delivered in a row near the bottom of the screen horizontally ?
Anyways, this was not for me even with all the extra cool features. If the very basic function does not work well, it is of no use to me.
