Edition: 4.3-Inch Base Model Verified Purchase
I have had Garmin, Tom Tom, Sony and Magellan GPS's over the last ten years. I have come back to Garmin for my last two because they have by far the best interface. My other Garmin is a 1690.

The maps that came with this GPS are up to date. A restaurant that opened within the last six months is on the list.

I have found the 4.3 inch screen size to be the optimal size. It has a nice size keyboard and amazing graphics. It feels 'right' on a car dashboard.

The two features I absolutely require are the speed limit on the screen and the lane guidance. This GPS has both. This is my first Garmin out of three that goes into a split screen mode and shows the interstate signage as you come upon an exit you will be taking on your route. Great feature!

The audio is crisp and clear. It has plenty of volume capacity.

When needed, this unit will recalculate the directions quickly. I should also mention that it is very quick to acquire the satellites.

The one thing that this GPS does not have is traffic. My last four GPS's have had traffic and I have found it to be of limited usefulness. More than 50% of the time, the traffic has cleared out and you are still being alerted. The alternate routes around the traffic jams tend to be somewhat dubious.

Finally, what a great price!!! Just a year ago, you would have paid double the price for a GPS with all of the features you get with the Garmin 40. It is an excellent buy!

First off, if you like bells and whistles in your GPS unit this is not for you, but if you want:
1. A very easy GPS to operate
2. A lightning fast satellite lock on
3. A bright easy to view screen in sunlight
4. A loud clear voice that will overcome road noise
5. A very nice lane assist feature

I've owned Tom Tom's, Mio's, Navigon's, and Magellan's but none had it all together like this nuvi 50lm has. The Tom Tom has a great lane assist feature but lousy voice and terrible pronunciation of names . The Magellan had great information but would badger you with information and has a so-so lane assist feature. This Garmin nuvi 50lm has both great audio instructions and a great lane assist feature, the best of both features I've seen in one GPS. This is a no frills unit like Blue Tooth, MP3 player, photo viewer and the such. Its very meat and potatoes and the menus are intuitively laid out and simple to understand. The only reason I said "near perfect" is I wish it had a "way point" provision but sadly its only programmable to one destination at a time and without way points. Overall I'm more pleased with this GPS than with any I've owned before, which have been numerous looking for a GPS that has what I want. This certainly fits the bill.

Quite by accident I found out you can put in one via point and here's how:
Select where you want to go and then press "GO" as you normally would.
Go back to the "Where To" and "View Map" screen. Program in a second destination and press "Go" again.
A screen will automatically pop up asking if you want this second destination to be your NEW DESTINATION or marked as a VIA POINT. Select "Via Point" and the GPS will take you to your destination by traveling past your via point.
I amend my title to "A PERFECT GPS". This GPS is amazing...Wish it came with a comprehensive instruction manual.

Edition: 4.3-Inch Base Model
I've had Garmins for the last 10 years. The first one, that I had for at least 5 years NEVER DIED (I got my hubby's newer one when he got a car with built in and I SOLD the old Garmin!). That one lasted at least 5 years or more as well, but the charging cable got wonky and by the time you replaced it -- it was time for a new one.
I LOVED my new GARMIN NUVI 40 with lifetime maps when I got it. For that whole MONTH. Then came the random day when it wanted me to recalibrate the screen for no reason and then ALL THE MAPS WERE GONE. GONE.
So I went online to try to figure out what happened. On the Garmin site, once you find the stuff you need, it tells you to register your Garmin. Well okay. But to do that YOU HAVE TO DOWNLOAD SOFTWARE TO REGISTER? Oh seriously? And then go through this whole install thing that keeps crashing? AND REBOOT the computer? I still haven't gotten it to work.
So I called GARMIN -- 30 MINUTES UNTIL SOMEONE ONE ANSWERED THE PHONE. And then he told me to get a "Standard USB Cable" so I could plug it in (it doesn't come with any cable, just a car charger). I went through a ton of cables before stumbling over an old one for a Disney Princess treasure chest that worked. FOR REAL GARMIN?
STILL CAN'T DO THE 20+ ARCANE BIZARRE SECRET HANDSHAKE steps to reinstall and unlock the bloody maps. (they include cutting and pasting things into a a "text document" seriously, I couldn't make this up. IT'S ONE MONTH OLD).

GARMIN SUCKS. Good luck.

All I wanted was a basic GPS for my work Truck, I was surprise to find out that this $95 was much better than just a "Basic GPS".

SPEED LIMIT: I'm constantly asking myself or passenger "What the speed limit here" but with the Nuvi 40 LM it has the speed Limit sign displayed which I have been watching it and it will change to the new speed limit within just a few feet of the road sign. I also like that it shows your actual speed you are traveling as well, your speed will turn to red if you are traveling above the speed limit. I WISH it would allow you to program in a 5 to 10 MPH buffer before it turned red.

LANE ASIST: When I bought the Nuvi 40 I did not care if it had Lane assist or not. But now I would say it is a must have. When you near an major intersection or exit it will give you a preview on half of the screen what the lanes will look like, example - your exit lane on the left, then 2 more lanes continuing strait and another lane exiting to the right. Sometimes it will give you a preview of what the actual street sign will look like. Lane assist is not on all or even most of the exits or intersection but it is on the Major ones.

MOUNTING: I mounted my GPS at the very top of the windshield, just to right of the rear view mirror. That way it blends in with mirror and black trim on top of windshield and is not very visible from the outside so not invite theft. I tucked the power cord under the front edge of the headliner so it is not seen at all. I ran a extra 12 volt power supply with a cigarette lighter socket up and behind the sunvisor, so it is not seen 95% of the time, but allows easy access if I need to remove the GPS.

POWER ON: The extra power socket I ran, I have it tied in so it power on/off with the key.
