Works OK for me
Travelling around Australia I found the maps generally accurate. Display is easy to read under all light conditions and windscreen mount is effective. Free lifetime updates via Garmin Express works fine on my windows laptop. Doesn't offer a choice of routes - only most direct or fastest, which I find a drawback. Otherwise nothing to complain about.
how hot or cold
It,s ok for the money, for occasional use. Misses shortest way and sends you on a longer road. But what puzzles me is... In settings, Temperature ??? F or C ok, but what is this: Temperature Water ?????? No temperature is shown. Can someone enlighten me ? The Garmin COLORADO displays the temperature. Thanks.
Voice volume is good and map is ok too.
This TEMPERATURE WATER puzzles me...
Garmin Nuvi 40
I have tried to routes since Christmas, and both are longer and do not follow the main roads to reach the destination. Supposedly Auatralian choice of voice, but if you can put up with Kiwi "ixits" you will be OK. Watch the kids don't end up with 'over the ditch' accents for your local roads though!
God clear map
Kiwi instead of Australian accent. Does not seem to be able to calculate shortest routes using main roads.
Garmin Nuvi 30, 3.5 GPS
Great. Easy to use. Tells you when you are speeding. Gets totally lost occasionally. Doesn't have an overall map so that you see which direction you are going, which is a worry. You may have typed in the wrong address. Also doesn't show the total kilometer reading to your destination.
Doesn't give overall map of direction you are planning to travel. Doesn't give total kilometers to travel.
Hard to do better for the money.
My introduction to GPS's.
For someone who doesn't need or want all the bells and whistles this little unit does the job.
No need to worry about going the wrong way as it soon pulls me back on track.
Speed camera location alerts have probably saved me a coupla times as I didn't even realise they were located at some pedestrian crossings here in Adelaide.
For $88 on special with lifelong free map updates you couldn't go wrong.
Free lifelong map updates.
Verbal overspeed alerts have been left off the latest model.
Questions & Answers
Does it have bluetooth for hands free phone
what maps and able to be upgraded
Doesn't Garmin have much support? I noticed all the Navman queries were responded to by Navman support staff, whereas I don't see any Garmin staff responses to the Garmin queries. This is worrying.... may help me in deciding my next gps I think.
