The easy-to-use widescreen Nüvi 2300LM speaks street names and includes lifetime maps for the lower 48 states, Hawaii and Puerto Rico.

Includes Lifetime Map Updates

GPS Link...


Right out of the box, the nüvi 2300LM comes bundled with nüMaps Lifetime™. Which means you can download the newest map data when it becomes available — no monthly fees or maintenance costs — for the lifetime¹ of your device.

Turn-by-turn Directions

nüvi 2300LM 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.

Go Beyond Navigation

Also offered on nüvi 2300LM are standard nüvi features that go beyond navigation:

nüRoute™ Technology — trafficTrends™ and myTrends™ to better predict your estimated time of arrival and improve your routes
enhanced pedestrian navigation capabilities — pairs great with optional cityXplorer™ maps to navigate big cities
ecoRoute™ — a green feature that calculates a more fuel-efficient route and tracks fuel usage

“Where Am I?” emergency locator — get your exact latitude and longitude coordinates, the nearest address and intersection, and the closest hospitals, police stations, and fuel stations
anti-theft feature Garmin Lock™

microSD™ card slot
¹If you purchase a nüMaps Lifetime subscription (sold separately or bundled together with certain GPS models), you will receive up to 4 map data updates per year, when and as such updates are made available on Garmin’s website, for 1 compatible Garmin product until your product’s useful life expires or Garmin no longer receives map data from its third party supplier, whichever is shorter. A product’s “useful life” means the period during which the product (a) has sufficient memory capacity and other required technical capabilities to utilize current map data and (b) is capable of operating as intended without major repairs. A product will be deemed to be out of service and its useful life to be ended if no updates have been downloaded for such product for a period of 24 months or more. Unless otherwise stated, the updates you receive under the subscription will be updates to the same geographic map data originally included with your Garmin product when originally purchased. In some instances, your Garmin product might not have sufficient memory remaining for you to load an update to the map data, in which case you will need to either (a) select reduced map data coverage for your updates, or (b) purchase separately a microSD™/SD™ card (if and as applicable to your Garmin product) and load all or a portion of the map data coverage for your updates to the card and insert the card into the microSD/SD card slot contained in your Garmin product. If neither of the measures in (a) or (b) can be used to address your product’s lack of sufficient remaining memory, then Garmin may conclude that the “useful life” of your product has expired. Garmin may terminate your nüMaps Lifetime subscription at any time if you violate any of the terms of this agreement or your subscription. Your nüMaps Lifetime subscription may not be transferred to another Garmin product.

Not bad if you need one. Got the LM40 year before last on the Staples deal new for under $60. Lifetime map updates is definitely the way to go. Having said that, my son's HTC EVO 4G phone WITHOUT CELL SERVICE offers turn by turn directions and a 4.7 inch screen. It was $38. We haven't used it for that, but he selected it and it showed us at the correct location. Any of these phones should do turn by turn without cell service. You may have to buy some sort of program cheap on some of them, I haven't got into it. But I think GPS units will be gone in 5 years for the most part. And the ones built into cars for $1500 are completely ridiculous.

Big Lots (B&M) has a 5" for $79 and a 7" for $99 Magellan brand GPS with free map updates and free traffic. In my opinion, it's a better deal.

Comparing Garmins and Magellans is like comparing apples to oranges - different products and different customer support. I loved my first GPS and it was a Magellan, but I have moved on to Garmins, which I believe to be overall better units. But at $99, the 7-inch Magellan does look interesting.
