Fast delivery , great product and a great price. I am so happy that I am not trying to use my cell phone as a GPS anymore. One of the great features I did not know about surprised me yesterday. The Garmin started beeping. When I looked at the Nuvi I realized there was an upcoming school zone and I was being alerted. Great Feature.

Upgraded my Garmin
By Donald E. Fulton
I've been using a Garmin navigator in my car for years, but decided to upgrade to new Garmin technology since the 65LM (reconditioned) with its 6" screen was less than one hundred dollars. The unit arrived in perfect condition with all cables. My old 4" screen was useless, the new 6" screen is much better, the voice is better, satellite acquision is faster. I especially like having the arrival time in the lower right hand corner (this can be changed). Also nice is hitting the upper left corner allows the complete route to the destination to be shown. The 65LM fit on my old Garmin beanbag mount.
One annoyance that still exists is if skip a turn, you get an nearly endless series of spoken messages to take the next turn, however, at least the annoying "recalculating" is largely gone. I wish there was a mute function to stop this, but alas the only way I see to do it is hit the power button to put the unit asleep. However, the endless "recalculating"
I've been playing with options. I started with restaurants, gas stations, etc displayed on screen all the time, but soon found the screen was so cluttered (at least near a city) that I couldn't see the route, so I turned this off. I experimented with 'North UP', but found on a quick glance I could not tell which way the car was pointing because the on screen car symbol is too symmetrical, so I am back to Track Up.
One continuing annoyance is that Recently found list fills up too easily with junk addresses. I gather from the online manual there is a way to delete an individual entry, but it is not intuitive, and I haven't yet been able to do this. There's lots of spare memory, so downloaded the online manual (.pdf) onto the LM65. Unfortunately .pdf files are not supported, and I don't see anyway to access the manual.
(update) For a long time I used the 'Recently found' list for my addresses, but this list has gradually filled up with junk, so I put a lot of time into trying to delete individually entries. By fooling around I was able to delete one or two, but I couldn't delete a lot of them and in doing this I inadvertently added new addresses making the problem worse. .
I've now given up trying to use the 'Recently found' list, but I have a work around. Pull your address from the 'Saved' list.The advantage of the 'Saved' list over the 'Recently found' list is that it will have far less junk, because it will only have address that you (not Garmin) have specifically saved. To populate my Saved list, which was empty, I called up the addresses in 'Recently found' that I wanted to keep and individually Saved them. ("i" leads to Save button.) I then deleted all the entries in the 'Recently found' list. New addresses will automatically be entered by Garmin into the 'Recently found' list, so periodically those I want to keep I can easily move into my 'Saved' list.

Garmon 6 inch is big hit.
Nothing negative at all! I had one that was about 5 years old and there were 4 or 5 things that I wished they would improve upon and it's like Garman read my mind. Everything is perfect with this one. I especially like the larger screen, school zone warnings, easy labeling sites, and split screen at exits.
