GARMIN 60LMTHD

 

I was ask to report on the 60LMTHD. It is great GPS. What I liked about it that when driving through Houston, Samantha gave great direction. She let me know when to change lane and which lane for me to get in. I also like how you can change the dashboard to what you like. When I came to a red light, she told me which way to turn and what lane I needed to be in to make my turn. Even my wife liked the GPS. She would listen to Samantha and she made sure I was obeying Samantha since I had my eyes on the traffic. This is the best Gps that I have ever own. You can do so many things with this one. It will ding for the upcoming speed zone. will ding if you go over the speed limit. which I like because I am always going over. This will also keep you alert. Let you know what is ahead. This gps will let you program it to what your need are. There are more stuff to play around with which I haven't had time to do. With this one I will never miss a turn.

I Second Everything

that rthibodaux said above. I've had mine for about 2 months now, and I absolutely love it. The 6 inch screen is large enough to see at a glance, it is bright enough for these old eyes, and loud enough for these hearing disabled ears. I have not had the opportunity te test the traffic yet. The map came with the small Junction View, so I need to get the larger one, along with the latest map. Love the dings for school speed zones, and RR crossings. I took out the voice alert on my POI files for RR crossings. I mentioned a while back that the voice recognition works about 50-60% of the time. Addresses are the worst. It will recognize spoken places about 90-95% of the time. Like rthibodaux said, lots more bells and whistles to play with. More later.

I wear hearing aids, If I am going slow I can understand what Samantha is saying, but at highway speed it is kind of hard, that is why my wife sits up front with me. Samantha said all the address clearly, had no problem understanding her. She alerts you at about .8 of a mile if you have to make a turn and again at .5 of a mile, so you have lots of time to get in the correct lane. I can't say enough about the gps. Garmin has a winner on this one.

So Samantha works for you when idling down the street.

I wonder of one of the other voices may work for you at highway speeds rolleyes :

Sounds Great

I think I would love the lane changes to be spoken. I have to look on my GPS to see what land to tell my husband to get in. Also, a ding when the speed changes sounds nice too.
Sounds Great. Thanks for the reports.

It also dings when you are approaching a speed limit sign letting you know what the speed limit will be.
