Avoid traffic tie-ups

To keep drivers moving, the nüvi 2545LMT includes subscription-free 3D traffic for the lifetime of the product.*

Delivered via traditional RDS-TMC, the service combines trafficTrends historic route data together with information on the current traffic situation to identify congestion and incidents on your planned journey. An astonishing 80 million sources are used to understand what’s happening on the roads, with comprehensive coverage of motorways and A roads across the UK and Europe. If there are queues, you’ll be offered an alternative route to avoid any delay.

* FREE lifetime traffic updates may not be transferred to another person or another Garmin product. Lifetime traffic extends for the useful life of your Garmin traffic receiver (as long as you own a compatible Garmin GPS) or as long as Garmin receives traffic data from its traffic supplier, whichever is shorter. Traffic content not available for all areas. See

I bought this as an upgrade for my Garmin 200W which I loved. I live in the North of Scotland and use my Sat Nav mainly for holidays. I wanted something with junction view and lane guidance because when you don't drive regularly on motorways some junctions can be quite daunting. Also I wanted the unlimited map updates because a real downsides in buying a Sat Nav is paying to keep the maps current. I've just returned from a trip to Glasgow so I've had a chance to try the various features so here's the review.
Firstly this unit DOES NOT have bluetooth or voice control. It does have a 5 inch screen, unlimited map updates, unlimited traffic, photoreal junction views, lane guidance, spoken street names and speed camera locations.
I had no problems updating the maps using the Garmin Lifetime Updater. The maps downloaded and installed reasonably quickly and with no problems. However the maps are still slightly out of date. The new Glasgow M74 motorway extension is still not included. This is where unlimited map updates are great, because I was keen to have this stretch of road included on the unit and I'd have been annoyed if I'd have to pay for this update at some point.
I have encountered problems updating the unit software using the Garmin Dashboard. Although I followed the instructions and I think the software updated, whenever I connect the unit the unit it flags the software as not being the most up to date version, but when I try updating again the same message still appears. I've had a look on the Garmin forums and I think this may be an issue with some series of units. The unit seems to operate regardless so it's not really an issue.
The 5 inch screen is clear, although in sunny conditions I did have to crank up the brightness.

I value other peoples product reviews as it helpful to me in making my mind up but when i see negative views it puts me off buying a product and this happened in this case, My Mio 4.3" was out of date and i read the Garmin reviews and some were discouraging and so i got another Mio but as that was faulty, soI looked around again. "Bit the bullet" and went for Garmin 2545LMT. So why the change of heart. 1. Map Updates are free. 2. Superb quality. 3. £30 back from Garmin. 4. 10% of other Garmin accesory (I got the camera update). 5 Garmin support. Initially I had a problem when faced with downloading the device software and map update alongside the map updater but quickly resolved it myself but i did ask the Garmin support team who gave an instant reply on what might have happened and a detailed resolution. The discount certainly helped sway my mind as i have only spent an extra £35 on a better satnav with free updates. But the satnav is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G. There are many different options to search for the best routes, i like the Where To where you set up your favourites like Banks, Attractions, Garages, Hospitals etc. The dashboard is also good as once the route is set, you can then modify the dashboard to include a trip computer and get trends of your driving. I have used it today for the first time on my local roads and it performed well. I will test it next week on my holidays and then i will update this review. But so far I think its superb. Down side wasnt the lack of the manual as downloading onto laptop is quick and far easier to read but the lack of a case to protect it and a ac charger would have been handy. I'm happy to say that my week on holiday and testing this satnav went very well.Read more ›

Like buying a printer satnavs are cheap to buy but expensive to maintain - with this model MAPS and TRAFFIC FOR LIFE cuts this cost without compromising on the quality of the product. Easy to set up and to use but it does take a long time to download maps initially. Very quick to find a new route if you inadvertantly take a wrong turn! As usual excellent service from Amazon

I've had several SatNavs over the years, and as my hardware running the excellent IGO8 was becoming less reliable, I decided to buy a new SatNav. I eventually decided on Garmin Nuvi after reading many reviews.

I've been using it for a couple of months and here's my view. I think I've included many things that I wanted to know but couldn't find out.

The initial connection to the PC for registration &c, was followed by a 2Gb+ update. Fortunately I have a speedy internet link, but it still took about 45 minutes. Beware if your link is not 8Mbit/s or faster.

No user manual was supplied. This is downloadable from Garmin.

Easy to fit to windscreen
Easy connection to and detection by PC.
Quick switch on and locking onto satellites.
Good menus for setting most straightforward destinations
Generally speedy and responsive.
Micro SD card slot.
Links to Garmin's "Base Camp" for personalising destinations and POIs, which appear under Favourites.
"Base Camp" easily imports locations from Google Earth.
The default view showing every single restaurant and other POIs can be switched off.
Voice reproduction of street names will make you laugh, e.g. Clydesdale becomes Clidd-is-dale, Mellington becomes Mu-ling-ton, &c.
Switching off the car's ignition switches off the device.
Battery life seems good.
Arrival time seems to become earlier during the journey, suggesting better than average progress.

Map display/route not as clear cut as it could be. A better colour scheme would help.
Auto zoom could be better, zooming in closer at junctions.
