Like it a lot. I do believe it needs to be updated out of the box. Speed limits and truck restricted roads not up to date. Also it will try to make you take unnecessary turns.

Great so far, however, it doesn't have a option to choose "shortest distance"...in my job as a flatbed towtruck operator, I need to find the shortest route. I love the size of the screen, everything is easily seen on the screen and easy to read. Some of the directions given by the "voice" are a little lagged and I've missed turns due to it, but most of the time they are enough in advance to follow. A little more direction on setup would be nice, I've fortunetly found the options not explained in the tutorial by accident, which came in handy after I found them. The Voice Command option works great, except when operating a loud vehicle, (most of the trucks I work in are diesel and are VERY loud in the cab) does'nt work at all. You actually have to "yell" to get it to recognize the command, and then have to call out to it multiple times for it to actually recognize what your actually saying. It takes less time to stop and input everything by touchscreen. One of the nice options is the bluetooth...use it quite often, but again, have to be at a stop for my call to be heard due to "cab noise". I would give this 5 stars if the little things were fixed that I need in the use of my trade.

Got here early has faults but only those made by the programmers when they were repairing the bridge over the Missouri river it said the whole I 80 was out to trucks at 40 tons I rely on the maps and use it as an aid the map in it is really good and you can slide across the whole country with all the towns listed easily just remember its an aid doesn't replace the brain

IMPRESSIVE.
I AM SO GLAD I DID NOT HEED THE NEGATIVE REVIEWS... I needed a truck oriented GPS for the commercial vehicle I periodically drive for work and I 'he-hawed' for the longest time whether to buy this unit based on the negative reviews and NOT my previous experience with Garmin.

I own 2 other Garmins (nuvi 465 4.3in (purchased Oct. 2011) and the nuvi 2757 LM 7 in (purchased Jan. 2014).). The 2757 LM does not have a truck mode but the 465 does. The 2757 LM is an excellent unit and the ONLY reason I purchased this one is for the truck mode. I dropped the 465 a few times (clumsy me, LOL) and it seems to have caused the display to malfunction or I would be still using it in truck mode.
I plugged this unit in and was amazed at the graphics and navigation. No errors thus far. It looks even better than the 2757. I live on Long Island, in NY and travel from the Hamptons to Somers, NY, and this unit serves me well. I like the simplicity in this unit.

Maybe the professional truckers are expecting more than this unit can offer so they bash it. For what they want they may need a more advanced & more expensive unit. This unit is a great basic unit.

No five stars because the traffic function did not pick up any traffic signals during my frequent driving (in car mode) between Long Island and NYC. That is my only disappointment.

If you are looking for a basic unit to help you stay off parkways because you drive a commercial vehicle, this is your unit. Hmmm, one ticket for being in the wrong place with commercial plates would pay for this unit...LOL

In the US ... Brilliant device to have ... Outside the US (Europe) causes problems
Mainly because of the non-English location names, no search, the European maps stored on the external memory card are not recognized or updated

Love it! I drive a truck for a living and the truck route guide is dead on! Wish I had bought one years ago.
