Customer Reviews of Garmin nuvi 2300LM 4.3" GPS Navigation with Lifetime Maps
The Garmin Nuvi 2300 series (I have the 2350LMT as well) is a great product that is intuitive and very functional. The maps are amazingly accurate and updated even in rural areas. Build quality is there and a child can operate it. Will purchase a newer version of the same when the time comes.
Got it works perfect. No complaints
Pros: the feature I like in this than my previous Garmin GPS in thin and wider screen and Trip Planner. The maps are not that good. I live in Roanoke, and when I look for Sams club it shows me a way, entirely different route.There is no SAMS Club at all even in the direction the GPS is directing to go. Cannot trust this so much.
The item was as listed, in new condition and delivered with no problem. Love it.
The product works great.
I can't believe how consumer friendly this gps unit is. The first time I used it, the performance was greater than I expected. I'm not the most computer savvy person I know so I was sure I would have a hard time with it, but I didn't have any trouble at all. I got where I wanted to go and home again without getting lost and for me with my sense of direction that is amazing!
Another solid offering, this is my third Garmin purchase and happy with all three. Only wish the maps had more detail
This GPS is as my rating, good value, good performance, ease of use, and very satistifed with my purchse.
It runs fast and correctly. I'm satisfied with it. There are amounts of addresses in it, which are useful to me.
Quick response to hook up question.6/27/2012
Had a problem with the connection for the car. They replied on the next business day that the new system plugs into the mount and not the GPS unit as before

Great GPS and Great price!5/23/2012
Good product value, good delivery time even for budget shipping! I would do business with them as this item was an exceptional value. If you're looking for a GPS, ensure to buy one with lifetime map updates or you'll end up buying the GPS again after the third map update.
New, works great, lifetime map updates.
My second Garmin5/1/2012
I love it as much as my old one. Lifetime maps are the best deal out there.
Great product for the price4/23/2012
Have been using this product or about 2 weeks and it has been very helpful to me as I am prone to getting lost. The only issue I had was with it recognizing a street that easily popped up on my Google maps. I had to search for the street by only putting part of the street name and looking it up versus putting the whole name for the GPS to find it. Otherwise great product for a the value.
Woke up Sunday morning to find I was missing a passenger door window, and my garmin 1450, while I had to wait until Monday for the glass repair shop to open, I was able to act immediatly on replacing my GPS. While this new 2300LM is a tiny bit smaller than the 1450, it is still pleanty big enough. I already like the spoken street name feature. I've also already taken advantage to the included lifetme maps, updating to the newest available.
Great GPS for price3/28/2012
Works great....but allow time for map upgrade software to load to your PC and then GPS. It is a simple process...just takes some time to load. GPS works great....no issues at all and is simple to navigate.
The lifetime map updates sounds like a great feature. Maps can be updated four times a year and the access using the web page was easy. But I have to wonder what Garmin considers "useful life" of the device. But even if they are only available for three years, then it is still cheaper than buying the maps. The conditions of lifetime traffic updates are definitely not what I expected.
I bought the Garmin as a gift for my wife and was thrilled about the lifetime updates for traffic and maps. Setup and navigation is good. We like the big screen and the way the information is provided. The lifetime map updates sounds like a great feature. Maps can be updated four times a year and the access using the web page was easy. But I have to wonder what Garmin considers "useful life" of the device. But even if they are only available for three years, then it is still cheaper than buying the maps. The conditions of lifetime traffic updates are definitely not what I expected and the reason that I am thinking of returning the device. The ads that finance the lifetime traffic pop up on the screen and disrupt the navigation. This is obnoxious! This should be mentioned in the product description! I couldn't even find information about the ad financed traffic on the Garmin web page!
