Took me to france (via tunnel) belgium,holland & back to london without a hitch. For unknown reasons it did not want to get me out of london. Bit of a pain on a very wet friday night.
Easy to use like the voice command clear maps & instructions. The instructions downloaded could be clearer but garmin helpline is very good.

It is easy to use, starts up quickly, is accurate, the screen is very clear and the spoken instructions are given in plenty of time and make perfect sense. It gives a good variety of options when travelling and the traffic updates are very good (we were alerted to a vehicle fire on the motorway up ahead, so were able to turn off and avoid a long delay). The maps load at a reasonable speed (not that this should be a problem, if it is, just leave to load when you go to bed, far more than enough time for this task to complete). The lifetime updates are a valuable asset. Likewise the traffic updates. There are many good features, all of which can be explored according to personal taste. My only criticism is the manual; the one provided with mine was a quick start up manual.
Does what it says in the publicity. Needs quite some time to update all the maps but there were no problems doing the upgrades. The lifetime map upgrades will be well worth having. Not yet used it on a long trip but my other garmin has been faultless at getting us to our destinations.
I bought it partly due to the garmin reputation, but largely due to the lifetime free map and traffic updates. These represent a considerable saving over time. I was not impressed however when having received a notification that a map update was available, i was unable to complete the update due to insufficient memory being available on the unit. I had to purchase a micro sd card before i could update the maps. It was however inconvenient and caused me unecessary delay in updating the unit. Garmin must be aware of this situation and could simply supply the unti complete with sd card and increase the price accordingly. But for this annoyance, i would certainly have given the unit at least four stars.
Garmin nuvi 2495LMT 4.3″ Sat Nav with UK and Full Europe Maps, Free Lifetime Map Updates, Free Lifetime Traffic Alerts and Bluetooth : Everything i wanted it to be. I agonised for while over which satnav to buy. I wanted bluetooth, i wanted subscription-free maps and traffic, eurpean cover and a gadget i could use as a mini armchair atlas for aimless ‘virtual’ wandering. It all comes in this bundle. I’m just back from bavaria where the machine was faultless in finding main routes and the most obscure back routes. I was amazed to realise that it tracked me off-road (slimline, in-pocket) whilst walking in the alps. Obviously it doesn’t show tracks but it showed my position, direction, etc – an extreme test of the ‘last parking spot’ facility – could be a life-saver. Great machine, well pleased with my purchase.
