The easy-to-use, widescreen nüvi 2300 speaks street names and includes maps for the lower 48 states, Hawaii and Puerto Rico. It features many superior functions such as turn-by-turn directions and pedestrian navigation. Besides, its nüRoute technology with trafficTrends historical traffic and myTrends predictive routing makes daily driving even easier.

  • newegg Get Turn-by-turn Directions nüvi 2300 has an intuitive interface that greets you with 2 simple questions: “Where To?” and “View Map.” Touch the color screen to easily look up addresses and services and get voice-prompted, turn-by-turn directions that speak street names to your destination. It comes preloaded with detailed City Navigator NT street maps for the continental U.S., Hawaii and Puerto Rico with nearly 6 million points of interest (POIs) including stores, restaurants, hotels, entertainment venues, gas stations, and ATMs, and speed limits for most major roads in the U.S. and Europe. And with HotFix satellite prediction, nüvi calculates your position faster to get you there quicker.
  • newegg Experience nüRoute Technology with trafficTrends and myTrends nüvi 2300 include trafficTrends and myTrends - no subscription necessary, no added costs, it just does it. With trafficTrends, your nüvi 2300 automatically learns daytime trends for traffic flow to improve your routes and better predict your estimated time of arrival based on time of day and day of week. With myTrends, when you save your regular destinations in your “Favorites,” your nüvi 2300 will, over time, begin to figure out where you’re going even without your telling it! It provides time of arrival and relevant traffic information. So whether you’re driving to and from work or a regularly scheduled weekly event, your nüvi 2300 will help you get there on time.
  • newegg Cities of the world, in the palm of your hand CityXplorer maps transform your navigator into your personal concierge, providing detailed roads and points of interest for automobile travel along with enhanced pedestrian navigation options to help you navigate the city’s public transit systems. Need to catch the bus or jump on the train ... or do both?
  • newegg Go beyond navigation Also offered on nüvi 2300 are standard nüvi features that go beyond navigation. nüvi 2300 saves you gas and money with ecoRoute — a green feature that calculates the most fuel-efficient route, tracks fuel usage and more. The nüvi 2300 includes many travel tools including JPEG picture viewer, world travel clock with time zones, currency converter, measurement converter, calculator and more. With its "Where Am I?" emergency locator, you always know your location - your exact latitude and longitude coordinates, the nearest address and intersection, and the closest hospitals, police stations and fuel stations. The nüvi 2300 also features Garmin Lock, an anti-theft feature, and is compatible with Garmin Garage where you can download custom voices and vehicles. Enhance your travel experience with optional plug-in microSD cards.

3 out of 5 eggsRubbish

Pros: Was a great little GPS that successfully navigated me from point A to B.

Cons: After about 2 months it asked for a firmware update, upon completing this update the GPS no longer turned on for more then a few seconds. I attempted a hard reset but now it doesn't turn on at all.

2 out of 5 eggsNice GPS.. Wrong Adapter

Pros: The GPS is great!

Cons: The GPS was shipped with the incorrect adapter.. I have read similar problems about garmin nuvi 3500 orders from Costco. Not really sure where the mix-up is.

2 out of 5 eggsstopped working within 3 weeks

Pros: Brand recognition and reasonable price, speaks street names, fairly decent screen size

Cons: all of sudden it displays the "FM Traffic provider database is missing. Go to www.garmin.com/webupdate" message (even though I did not buy the FM option and the unit was working well previously). Has 4 satellite signal bars, refuse to load map and refuse to help navigate me to my destination.

I have to initiate my Newegg 30 replacement thing.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: $20.00 off!

Cons: None yet. Thanks to the the other feedback comments, I knew exactly what to expect. Missing cable vs. $20.00 off promo code makes this a good deal imo.

Will leave another score in the future if I have any problems.

Other Thoughts: USB male A to male B micro cable is required for PC to nuvi communication - plugs directly into bottom of unit (I bought mine for $1.99 on an auction site prior to finding Newegg). USB male A to male mini cable works for PC charging ONLY - plugs into the back of vehicle mount.

Download and install latest Garmin USB drivers and Garmin Communicator Plugin. Nuvi updates available @ garmin/mydashboard. Recommend sexy Aussie gf Matilda voice. :)

SD card will require 2 folders. Garmin and POI - place POI inside Garmin folder. Unlocked IMG maps go in the Garmin folder, custom POI's go in POI folder.

Bought this to drive old folks to their appointments. Volunteering is good, and it's good for you!

3 out of 5 eggsCheap

Pros: Works fine as a GPS

Cons: As mentioned by others, the cable from the GPS to the PC is not provided. Also there is no headphone connector

Other Thoughts: I already owned a SteetPilot that I liked fine; but it is several years old and the cost to updates maps from Garmin is exorbitant. I was surprised at the lack of cables and carrying case, the Street pilot had both.

1 out of 5 eggskidding, right?

Pros: Dunno; cannot connect the device.

Cons: This is a joke, right? The unit requires a "mini" usb cable to connect to the computer. Guess what: it is not included in the box! No cable. You can buy one from them for $25 and wait another week for it to arrive. Every other bleeding device I have, uses a regular usb cable; not apparently this beauty.

Newegg is fine, but should have disclosed this tid bit.

Are these people serious?
