Leaving for Florida in a few weeks, neeed help due to navigational challenges. Tried a friends TomTom.....it was cofusing, difficult to understand and VERY frustrating. No one in our family liked it. Bought Garmin because I used my moms and like the easy set up and accuracy. Ready for travel.

This was our second Garmin, the first died 2 months after the warranty was up. Salesman talked us into this model. We took 2 trips, the first entrance onto the tollway had us looping an extra 2.5 miles. I caught the next 2 such looped calculations.
Trip #2; the directions took my wife pass the exit 2 times before exiting at it on the 3rd pass. Pass it south, loop 10 minutes in city traffic go back north 2 exits loop another 5 minutes, back south to the exit on the 3rd pass. 20 minute trip took 45 minutes and cost us gas. "Seriously Garmin" Glad there was a 14 return policy. 2 strikes and your out Garmin

Not as good as my last Garmin

Comments about Garmin nuvi 40LM Portable GPS:

This Garmin is directionally challenged. I don't know why, but this one has a hard time figuring out which road I am on; it frequently thinks I'm driving on a road parallel to the one where I am actually located, and it will take it several blocks or a few turns to figure out that I am not where it thinks I am. This is really confusing - I'll be happily driving along Main Street, say, and it thinks I am on Washington Avenue and starts telling me to turn left and then right to get onto Main Street. Very frustrating. Our prior Garmin didn't do this at all. I tried updating the software but that didn't help.

On the positive side, it takes much less time "acquiring satellites" than our previous Garmin did. The display is easy to use (intuitive) and somewhat easier to read than our older model.

solid, dependable Garmin

Comments about Garmin nuvi 40LM Portable GPS:

I got this as a replacement for a 6 year old Garmin nuvi 255w that had finally died. I worried that the smaller screen would be a problem, but I haven't noticed any difference in ability to navigate and see as much of the map as I need to. I really like the new (to me) lane assist function; when coming to an intersection with multiple lanes, the top left corner shows the number of lanes and highlights the one you should be in. I've noticed a few glitches in the system in that it occasionally doesn't notice when a road changes names without making a turn, and doesn't always find the most direct route, but my old Garmin had those same quirks and neither cause the directions to be wrong and result in getting lost. I have noticed with this one that it sometimes has difficulty pinpointing the target location once you're within a block of it, but by then you're in visual range of where you're going. I find the Garmin interface to be a very easy one to learn and use, and I'm very pleased with this model. It doesn't have a lot of bells and whistles, but it has everything you really need.

Working as expected

Comments about Garmin nuvi 40LM Portable GPS:

I am new to US and I don't have much knowledge of roads near my area so I was looking for GPS device.

I didn't find any difficulty in using this product. Right from day one, I am using this while commuting to local stores, office etc.. I actually went to JFK airport and didn't face any problem. On highway, it instructs much before the exit. It recalculates very fast. Also the language is very clear.

The only thing which I was not able to find is to delete the favorites. I actually added one address with wrong heading and I was not able to delete the same. Perhaps if I connect GPS to computer then I should be able to delete.

Overall I am happy with product.

Love this new Garmin Nuvi 499lm portable GPS. The price was great too. Only trouble I had was trying to get someone to help me as they are locked up and they didn't have enough staff. I had to wait more than 1/2 hour and several requests for help.

Not as expected

Comments about Garmin nuvi 40LM Portable GPS:

This was a replacement for another Garmin that just never located satellites anymore. It was about the same price but was missing features. There is no current time displayed, and most important it does not show if there were traffic delays ahead. I never realized how important that feature was, especially on highways :( Some other minor features were missing as well.
Guess I will just live with it for now.
