Style: Lifetime UK, Ireland and Western Europe Maps
I've been using Garmin for years now and quite a lot of their models have come through my hands.
This is a newer model which is part of the updated "Essential Series". Don't expect a revolution in terms of features (still very much entry level for Sat Navigation), however you do get a bigger screen which is now a nice large 6 inches.

Software across all the models is the same, where they differ is in terms of features.

Quick summary on the main points of the 65LM

Pros:
+ Good value for a larger 6" screen with lifetime maps and updates
+ The 6" screen is quite sharp (800 x 480 pixels) and easy to read, it's ok even in bright light (they have improved a bit here)
+ You do get the "Trip planner" which is handy for longer multiple waypoint journeys (the super budget models lack this) and the trip log which shows the routes driven on the map
+ Option to expand memory via micro SD card
+ Speed limit warning, both visual and audible (you can turn the sound off if you wish some hate it) And safety camera alerts
+ Points of interest search option, tourist attractions, hotels, petrol stations, restaurants, shopping centres, simply enter the POI mode and you can select what you are looking for and it will show you a list of these and directly navigate you to them once selected.

A good satnav. Decent screen and secure mount. Easy to use. Clear on screen instructions whilst driving.

Devon maps need some attention as the pace of road building here is clearly outpacing the map providers attempts to keep their maps up to date.

The Gamin Express software is a bit hit and miss. I needed to do a serious tidy up of my Windows C: drive in order to do a map update as the software dumps huge temporary files on it (and doesn't tidy them up) even though you tick the button to only install the map to the device. I needed to free up about 7GB to do the map update, which is 2x the size of the actual map!

Make sure you order a 4GB microsd memory card to be able to update the W. Europe map, which almost fills the device.

On the plus side, the screen is good and the lifetime free maps and traffic are a real bonus. I stopped updating my old TomTom because the maps cost a fortune each time. It was cheaper to buy this Garmin than keep paying for updates to the TomTom. The Garmin software seems no worse than TomTom's so I guess that both manufacturers have some homework to do here.

This sat nav has changed my life. The features of showing speed, changes of speed limit, nearby cameras and estimated arrival time are particularly useful. It also shows things like nearby places to eat, which I hadn't expected. The only thing I would say is that the sucker-apparatus doesn't stick to any surface in my car, which is a bit frustrating, but I think that's more an issue with the interior of my car than the sat nav. Nothing a bit of bluetac couldn't fix.

Great simple sat nav. The unit is very easy to use and the screen is plenty big enough. You don't need to enter an exact address to navigate unlike other well known makes which is a real help, you can just go to a town or even to a set of coordinates. I really would not want any more features, they are just not worth it, this does everythung you would ever need in the normal world. It also syncs well with garmin connect on your pc .......good stuff at a sensible price

I bought my Nuvi 55LMT , with lifetime traffic updates,a few weeks ago. Recently, travelling home to Cumbria from Peterborough, it showed the best route as A1(M) north to Scotch Corner, then A66 to Cockermouth. However, just past York, (junction to north of 49) the A1(M) was closed. This was obviously a planned closure, a diversion fully signed. The Garmin obviously knew nothing about this closure and constantly tried to send me back to the A1(M). The diversion took me a long way east, up the A19, then joining the A66 at Middlesbrough. This diversion made the suggested route very much longer.
Then, the Garmin indicated the A66 was closed just east of Penrith and wanted to divert me down the A685 to the M6. However, there were no signs warning of a road closure and I sailed through to Penrith. Only to find, just east of Cockermouth, the A66 closed. Again, the Garmin was unaware of this and kept trying to get me back as quickly possible.
So, we eventually arrived home at 45mins later than predicted and very frustrated.
I contacted Garmin for an explanation but have just had standard answers suggesting I check for updates or reset the unit.
One of the reasons I bought this unit was for the traffic updates and, on the basis of my experience, they are a waste of money.
