Live services

When you buy the nüLink! 2340, you receive your first year's subscription to nüLink! live services free of charge. Included in this package are some of the most useful real-time navigation aids on the market: 3D Traffic Live, online search via Google, five-day weather forecasts, Speedwatch safety camera reports, flight arrival times, parking availability and pricing information, and currency conversion charts. Some other apps, such as live fuel prices, are subject to a small monthly subscription.¹

Get traffic alerts

Garmin's best-ever traffic service, 3D Traffic Live, will transform your journeys and reduce much of the frustration caused by congestion and roadworks. 3D Traffic Live pulls together information from millions of live sources to update the sat nav every two-to-three minutes and suggest alternative routes to avoid tailbacks and bottlenecks. It analyses historic traffic trends, combines that with current data to keep track of gridlock, and predicts the volume of traffic according to the time of day, for example. To avoid jams, just tap the screen to take the system's recommended re-route and you'll be saving a heap of time and money.

See the traffic

But that's not all. Unique among sat navs, the nüLink! 2340 can actually display live images from traffic cameras to complement 3D Traffic Live. This means that, when it alerts you to traffic build-ups, you can look up our PhotoLive traffic images to see road conditions for yourself. Save your most-used cameras to the sat nav for ease of access, or check them before you set off. When you buy the nüLink! 2340, you receive a free 30-day trial of PhotoLive cameras, after which a small subscription is payable.

Top Customer Reviews

I have been a sat nav user since about the year 2000 when I had a Clarion hard disc system, then in about 2004/5 I upgraded to a Garmin street pilot 2610 with 2GB flash card and all European road maps. This system took us safely all the way to Kharkov in the east of Ukraine and many other west / east European adventures.

Recently when I was looking to update again I naturally looked at Garmin and Tom Tom as they are the 2 market leaders, I thought about changing to Tom Tom but was immediately put off by the very high level of unfavourable comments about the on line back up service.

Upon researching the Garmin range and picking out the NuLink 2340 as being the most suitable for my needs, I was even more surprised to read the amount negative comments from other people who had bought this system, looking at their comments a 2nd time it seemed as though quite a few of these commentors were new to sat navs.

Based upon my past extremely good experience of Garmin I decided to buy this unit, in the past few weeks I have been using the 2340 mainly for business use and I have to say it is a superb sat nav system, I would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone else.

My only niggle is unlike my old system where I could choose between 1) fastest route, 2) shortest distance, 3) off road - which I use frequently and 4) can't remember this one, each time I planned a new route, on the 2340 it remains in the main menu, I would have preferred to choose this option for each new route.

Best feature for me is the overall ease of use.

Very useful feature for me is the Google search option.

Took ages reading reviews of Garmin and TomTom before buying this sat nav a couple of months ago and it has been invaluable. I am hopeless at reading maps and this has transformed my journeys! The detour feature is helpful when there is a big queue on the motorway or a junction is closed and you have to find a new route. Took it to France for a week where it performed admirably. Very useful for finding a supermarket, restaurant, petrol etc. You still need to check on the map - once or twice the Garmin was confused by roads with hairpin bends in the mountains or took us on a silly route.

Some of the features are only available if you pay a subscription eg traffic cameras, petrol prices, but you need to check all that first on the Garmin website.

Overall a wonderful purchase that I wouldnt be without.

Since this review we have driven to Austria in 2012 through France, Germany, Luxembourg and we have never got lost or not arrived when and where we were supposed to. I think this is a fantastic sat nav.

Bought this for a few reasons as I already have a TomTom Go Live 1005 . First it gives me another sat nav for using on another vehicle . Secondly I read it uses google maps and is a lot better than TomTom for finding actual addresses plus has business addresses . Only just got it and set it up but it located my sister's address with no problem whereas on my TomTom it says number not found and you have to go by nearest number . Like many people looking more for bargains nowadays and not latest technology but still wanted Live services . This was a warehouse deal on an older model but looking good , I might go for the latest Garmin some time in the future if this proves better than my TomTom . Found touch screen a little bit hit and miss as sometimes you need to press harder/softer on screen to get a reaction and on screen keyboard the same . After having the TomTom 1005 I find the screen very small , that said I can remember 3.5 inch sat navs when they first came out . Every Tuesday I do deliveries in London and my TomTom gets utterly confused when you have to change route for any reason or there is traffic congestion . It will be interesting to see how the Garmin reacts to London traffic . Sorry it is not more detailed but only just got it . Definitely look at a Garmin or similar if your job etc. entails looking for addresses or business addresses . Had seen horror stories of how long this took to download maps etc. on first set up but I got through it in about 3 hours . Vaguely remember TomTom takes a time as well . This comes with Western European maps but when downloading it says unless I use SD card etc. it cannot do all the maps so I just went for UK and Ireland maps which it could handle without SD card .

I bought this satnav(actually it was the 2320 model but for the purpose of the review the difference between the two do not matter) as my current one's batter goes flat in no time and can hardly charge as I use it.
I got hooked up on the NuLink/Live features and it had good reviews, so I went for it.
I used it 1 day and returned it!
Why:
Main Problem: the spoken commands, will very, very often not announce that you need to make a turn at very last moment before the turn.
So the Sat nav will tell you: "In 300 yards turn left on Oxford rd". Then you drive and you expect some 10 yards before the turn to hear: "Turn Left", but that does not happen. To me this is a very fundamental flaw with how the spoken commands are designed. Basically if there is no other cross street before your next, it will announce the turn only once and way too early, so when the street comes you feel unsure if you should turn.

Problem 2: The computer generated voices/commands would sometimes split a command in 2 parts with large pause in the middle:
"Turn left on A5 and at the roundabout" + separate command 30 seconds later: "...take the second exit"

Problem 3: Route simulation is only at actual speed. Imagine trying to watch a simulation of a 2.5 hour journey!!!
Problem 4: Adjusting volume while driving (active navigation running) requires that you re-enter your destination. Annoying if a passenger does it for you, and really unsafe to require all those extra actions from the driver.

Problem 5: While driving on the M1, it told me to take an exit, just to make me rejoin the same M1 200 yards further down (It was one of those exits where it splits and one lane just stays parallel to the motorway and rejoins it.
