GPS's UI is still quite miles better than any of those free offerings on phones.
I used to always use my 2450LM until I got a iPhone 5 and the app Waze. It is a must especially in the DC metropolitan area. Simply ridiculous how accurate traffic reporting is on Waze... and it's a free app too!
After reading through the various comments and reviews, it seems the ad issue has been addressed with the latest software update (at least, that's what most are saying). Nonetheless, now that this has dropped another $10 to $100, I'm going to jump on this. My father uses a GPS regularly (until it broke, hence why I'm getting a new one) as he is always driving to different customer's houses and sites as part of his job. While he could be using his phone (which only has a 3.8" screen), a stand alone GPS is much more convenient for someone who uses it heavily.
Someone on here said latest traffic update models are way more accurate than the older ones and as a result, their prices are around $200. Garmin try to sell out older models like this for cheap. I don't know it this was true.
I have 2 Garmin GPS, one is factory refurb. The other one, which I bought it brand new, connects to satellites much faster than the refurb. This is important to me. Maybe it's just me but if I have to buy a GPS again, I only buy brand new.
I bought this one off Craigslist brand new in sealed box for $65 three weeks ago. Although I didn't try the traffic yet but bought after reading amazon reviews that with latest software updates, the ads are no longer an issue.
To me this is the best LMT (not just LM) option for the price of around 100.
I've got a 265WT and discovered that if you zoom out (-) waaay up, the display changes to a contour map and shows the river valleys and stuff. I wasn't expecting it - it's the coolest thing about the garmin. Don't know if magellan or the others do that but Garmin sure does.
It is the way to drive on long trips - cooler than shit.
