Don't Pay for Advertising,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Garmin nüvi 2455LMT 4.3-Inch Portable GPS Navigator with Lifetime Map & Traffic Updates (Electronics)
This is my first GPS device and I am very happy with its operation. However, I must agree with the many reviews about how annoying it is to have to advertising that I paid for. I paid extra to get the lifetime maps and traffic updates. I DID NOT PAY EXTRA for advertising. The only way to dismiss them is to click on them while driving and dismiss them and hope they don't come back too often. You better believe that Garmin will have a lawsuit on their hands if I have an accident while trying to dismiss the annoying ads. Further, based on another review, Garmin offers a solution to pay another $70 to prevent the ads. WRONG. I wish I could give a 5 star rating, but based on the ads, I must give a single star.

the problem with your lawsuit will be the disclaimer you have to acknowledge on the power up that says you will not use this product while the vehicle is in motion.

The consumer has to use the GPS while the car is in motion. Why would Garmin throw advertising on the unit, while driving? To distract my driving attention? I'm going to join the lawsuit party, needed be. For now, this GPS is out of my consideration list (I was about to purchase it, but thanks to Tim Bedow, I will not!). Marketing is taking over our lives... everywhere you look, you see advertisments. I'm sick and tired of them. Now - we got this on the GPSs too? Garmin's Senior Management has to be fired (otherwise, the company can file for bankruptcy; I can see this coming)!!!
