1.0 out of 5 stars Features are very good. Reliability poor, 11 Mar. 2013

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Garmin nuvi 2445LMT 4.3" Sat Nav with UK and Western Europe Maps, Free Lifetime Map Updates and Free Lifetime Traffic Alerts (discontinued by manufacturer) (Electronics)
Bought in mid December 2012. When received it was set to a demonstration mod. Needed Garmin to clear this problem, then multiple difficulties updating the maps and software. Now have a recurring problem with the unit switching off with no apparent reason. To my knowledge 4 of these 2445lm have suffered this problem and to date no solution forthcoming from GARMIN. I have had a Garmin Nuvi 360 for many years and been very pleased with it, no switch off has ever been apparent hence my decision to buy the 2445lm.

I bought garmin nuvi 2445LM WE, last month- not a month old, used about 8 times. Put it on charge for a journey, came to use it - wouldnt switch on. written to Garmin 2 days ago email. No acknowledgement or response to date. Very disappointed as bought this to replace my excellent 5 year old garmin which never let me down

I am having the same problem. I bought my first one in March 2013 and I am now in the process of returning my 3rd satnav. Garmin insist there is no problem with this model but I think 3 satnavs with the same problem is too much of a coincidence. Unfortunately they will not update, only do like for like, or refund me as I bought mine from Amazon. Advice to anyone if problems with the first one - get a refund!
