Garmin Nuvi 2545LMT,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Garmin nuvi 2545LMT 5" Sat Nav with UK and Western Europe Maps, Free Lifetime Map Updates and Free Lifetime Traffic Alerts (Electronics)
Firstly well done to Amazon for good price and usual speedy delivery.
Well made, good to look at and tactile. Finds satellites quickly and retains strong signal. Plots routes within seconds and updates quickly if you deviative off route. Clear sound and display. Finds traffic info easily and also spots and warns you of approaching traffic cameras. Quick to download software updates. Battery charges quickly and seems to be long lasting.
No user manual included, you have to download it, but they do send you the Quick Start Guide in 12 languages.
Updating new maps takes ages. Also if you are short on memory on your hard drive the update aborts after youve been downloading over an hour. Top tip is therefore make sure youve got plenty of hard drive space before you start updating.
Overall pleased with my purchase.
I have now had this sat nav a couple of months and used it extensively. Still rate it as 4 stars however what I have learned is that you cannot follow it without thinking for yourself. I recently had to travel back from Wimbledon to home and assumed it would route me M25 and M1. However it took me through the centre of London at rush hour. I put this down as something as a learning curve for myself. ( It is the shortest route.)
This is my first sat nav and I expect more experienced users would not have fallen into this trap.
