I drive a truck for a living, & so use it daily,even though it is set for truck route, it tries to route me through suburbs, has me turn down roads and then tells me to make a U-turn,(my truck is 70' long) & no matter what the destination is, everytime its a clock wise destination, or it sends you on a circle dest; mine is a 465t garmin

Comment:
I've had this gps for over 1 1/2 years.I do housecalls mostly to rural counties and very rarely I can say it has been accurate. I have to take written directions with me because I cannot rely on it many times. It also underestimates the driving times and is slow to warn of traffic problems. I purchased a map update hoping it would be better but it has been just as disappointing. <br /><br />Display is excellent and street names are well pronounced. I took it on vacation in Puerto Rico and it was very good overall although the traffic feature was not available. It has only crashed once.<br /><br />This is my second Garmin gps but I think I will try a different brand next time for my work.

Worked great but just stopped shortly after one year, like the motherboard fried or something. Not satisfied. Learn from me.
