# Username GPS model Pros Cons Rating
1 Garmin nuvi 2455LMT Live traffic updates are very accurate. Can be slow in locating satellites.
2 derzonj Garmin NUVI 2597 New device, so far very straightforward and easy to use. Particularly like the sleep feature, no more waiting for the thing to fire up. Took me a while to figure out un-mounting it from the dash holder, but now that I've got it figured, it comes off easy. 9
3 timothywarren13 Garmin Nuvi 154LMT Great for use in Europe, vizualization Voice direction and pronunciation isn't great 8
4 mprosenberg TomTom 2535 Very good. Good graphics. Accurate. Too many menus to add a POI on the fly. Poor battery life. Takes far too long to download updates. 9
5 glennostler Garmin Nuvi 1410 Does what it says on the tin.... Better graphics would be a help 6
6 leorobles Garmin Nuvi 2597lmt Start up is quick; telling which lane to be on when exiting a freeway; showing you a picture of your exit sign; free updates I don't like the fact that the auto zoom function really doesn't do anything when disabled. It zooms out too much but doesn't zoom back in where I would like it. Driving through a city and having it zoomed out is not a good thing. 8
7 malleecat garmin nuvi 2689lmt ability to install 3 party maps needs audiable alerts for over speeding, big let down 8
8 jelitch nuvi2595 It is viewable from anywhere in my truck When I adjust the GPS my right index finger sits right on the on/off button. 7
9 georgedaniel_20004 Garmin nuvi 2495 Realtime traffic
Voice control
Smartlink to Android
External aux connection not available 7
10 mabdelmoamen94 Tom Tom 4EF00 It gets me where I need to be the fastest way possible. Also it is very clear where I have to turn and merge. sometimes it takes long to find the best possible route when I plan faraway road trips. 7
11 colin.wiseguy XTRONS D712G Win 8 UI, Motorized 7 Touch Screen, External Storage, WiFi and 3G Capability Stock GPS Antenna could be better 7
12 vanlierde.dirk Nissan Connect Very good system, had VDO before, but Nissan Connect is better. No google in old Connect 8
13 TomTom Go Live 825 frequent updates
good live info
internet connections is slow when doing a local search 7
14 peteobyrne Garmin Nuvi 52 Good overall coverage. Cheap. Easy to follow. Some maps are definitely out of date and updated maps only come through infrequently. 6
15 isa_4 Garmin GPSMap78 Easy to use, has a Memory card for backup, good accuracy, portable. Touch screen would be awesome. 7
16 lastminmary TomTom225 & Nuvi 40 I find that the TomTom is easier to use then the Nuvi. Won't show custom poi file that I have put in the Nuvi TomTom is much easier to put poi files in 7
17 herveybay.qld Garmin 2597LMT Good clear sound quality Voice search results pronounce St. as Saint instead of street , e.g. Did you mean 123 Main Saint ? 6
18 iengle4 Garmin Zumo550, multiple Nuvi's Zumo, waterproof, M/C friendly screen visibility in sunlight 6
19 pavlo.deneka Garmin Nuvi 2558 This is perfect device for home No speed Cameras and Red light cameras 8
20 GDT-t Apple iPhone 5S Multiple applications onboard
Internet based maps
power terrible OEM map experience 4
21 lummis Garmin nuvi 2569LMT-D Only just purchased but lifetime maps and digital traffic sold it to me. Indicator in top left hand corner for next turning could be slightly larger. 7
22 DNX719VHD Garmin Kenwood DNX719vhd built in to the vw specific Kenwood 719vhd radio, works great, use it all the time. Beat my sisters device by 20 minutes at a recent family reunion where neither of us knew the way, Garmin ~40 mins, sisters route on another device ~60 minutes traffic warnings often a day late. Sittting in bumper to bumper, warning traffic ahead it says....No probs, not necessarily Garmins fault but I wish it would more proactively monitor the route it suggests, looking at the whole route instead of whats immediately ahead of you. (to be fair i am not sure any do this) But I do know others are way more on top of traffic and stuff... 8
23 travellingwilburys1 TomTom XXL Ease of use.
Very competitive pricing.
No verbal street names. 7
24 richardtyler11 TomTom GoLive 1005 Camper andd Caravan Very quick boot up time.

Seems to work as advertised by routing to avoid routes not suitable when towing a caravan

Very slow updates time. Although it shows which lane to be in when leaving a motorway or dual carriageway, it is slow to show the next turning and so often you end up in the wrong lane. Mapping in the main is very accurate but as with a number of GPSs (I have several), local knowledge shows much shorter routes in several instances than the SatNav plots 7
25 hmt rns510 flexibility and comfort maps are one year old 6
26 pepsimaxmjs Garmin Nuvi 2545LM Very good. Logical, fast screen response. Good mapping and traffic settings. Takes you down very narrow country roads too often... 7
27 amormortis garmin nuvi t660 good navigation, sometimes a few problems but very reliable. Sometimes it tries to take a route you would not want to because it's longer or a bigger hastle. 8
28 lowrider0308 Garmin Nuvi 1350LMT Lifetime traffic and maps was the best part of this gps. Not a lot of support from Garmin. 7
29 greenforest Garmin Large display, lane guidance Poor voice recognition 7
30 sampsonb Garmin Zumo 220 Great multi-purpose biker friendly GPS Touch Screen sensitivity, Lack of Dashboard customisation options 7
31 miles.nelson Garmin 2597 LMT Lifetime maps and photo realistic junctions Screen clarity is not as crisp as it could be 7
32 daveykarl HumminBird fishfinder 798 Great for the Kayak and boat Plastic shell cracks in heat 6
33 peter.kerney012 TomTom 2535 TM WTE Accurate maps, excellent plotting of fastest routes, clear vocal instructions, prompt notifications of alternate routes in case of traffic problems. Some knowledge of computer operations is a minimal requirement, as well as thorough reading of manual and other documentation provided with device before getting started. Some maintenance and updates cannot be done by self, but only with help of customer service. 7
34 paulmorris764 Garmin nuvi 50 Easy to set destination
User friendly
Simple to use
Unable to set way points Cannot set your own route 6
35 nakitechno Garmin Nuvi 1490, 50, 2597, 3595 Nuvi are versitile, easy to make maps for, solid GPS units As models develop it is frustrating that they loose functionality that you have used or developed in various bits of software 6
36 billd TomTom GO730 rugged - use it on motorcycle Only 50 waypoints maximum 7
37 jcleveland-80304 Parrot Asteroid Smart Great audio via cars built-in speaker system. Flexible, powerful system with many advanced features. Looks beautiful in cars dashboard. Takes time and effort to install and get fully operational. Parrot Asteroid store somewhat limited in add-on offerings. Garmin maps not available. 3
38 benboycott Kenwood DNX5220BT Style, ease of use, sound quality BT communication not 100% reliable 7
39 jonmy7 Garmin 660LM Robust, easy to use with gloves on, MP3 player, syncs with mobile (bluetooth). Good mounting brackets. Too many button pushes for some functions. Expensive. 7
40 mini_gint Garmin 3790T 3D maps is an added benefit when traveling in new areas to orient yourself. Junction view is also nice to minimize confusion on road trips. Sometimes seems like a slow processor that lags on map loading and route calculating. 7
41 theswervyist Navman Mio M400 Light and easy to use Not great battery life, probably due to my parents always plugging it in rather than the device itself though! 7
42 constantinprocaccio IOS Accurate enough for my daily commute If no internet, then nothing works 4
43 j_moreno694 nuvi 40 lmt Overall it is a very reliable unit, performs well. Not enough internal space for newer maps. 9
44 ac.miroslav Garmin CPT14 - Fiat Freemont Good coverage, speed alert, possible to upload POI no speed cameras, low voice level  
45 a.runeberg Kenwood DNX4210BT Autoradio with Garmin GPS No external SD Card slot 9
46 rmes Mercedes Comand Built-in, excellent ergonomics, great functionality in tunnels, includes three years of free map updates Updates are far and between, must pay for each update after third year 8
47 brett.druss Garmin Nuvi 200 Very reliable, low profile, great screen quality Cable is thick for device size, route recalculation could be quicker 7
48 brooklynmurk Garmin 3597 Amazing technology in a small package. Very versatile. Easy to use and navigate. Even though its a great unit that youŽll enjoy using IŽm not sure its worth the hefty asking price over less spendy garmin models so look for a deal before buying. 8
49 dick.tiernego TomTom / iPhone 4S simply the best. never misses to get me to my destination. not much to configure for the geeks. just comes as is. 7
50 antojohn Garmin Colorado Portable and does its job. No voice instructions. Small screen. 5
