Our take on the Garmin nüvi® 2475LT by Crutchfield's Dominic DeVito
International travel has gotten more sophisticated over the years, but there's still not much worse than getting lost in an area where you don't speak the language. The Garmin nüvi 2475LT portable navigator gives you detailed maps of most of Europe and the U.S., along with most of Canada, Mexico, and several Caribbean islands, making it ideal for transatlantic travel for business and pleasure alike. It also offers Bluetooth® connectivity for hands-free calling with your compatible phone. And its free traffic-information service keeps track of congestion in metropolitan areas, so you'll always find the quickest, most efficient route.
Innovative Garmin Guidance 2.0
Garmin didn't get to be a leader in the navigation industry by resting on their laurels. The nüvi 2475LT incorporates Garmin Guidance 2.0, a feature set that offers convenience for everyday travel. You can find and select businesses right on the map screen without having to go through time-wasting menus. Worried about losing your car in the lot at the mall? The navigator will help find it when you're done shopping.
More helpful features
Speed limit displays with visual warnings on major roads in both the U.S. and Europe help keep you in check. You'll see photoReal junction views that provide easy-to-read and realistic representations of complicated interchanges including signs so you can approach upcoming maneuvers with confidence. You'll also find a photo viewer, "Where Am I?" emergency aid, audiobook player, trip planner, and other helpful Garmin features.
Garmin 3D Traffic
The nüvi 2475LT features free lifetime traffic updates using Garmin's 3D Traffic service, which incorporates data from active devices on the road, historical traffic patterns, and other factors like construction, concerts, and sporting events to give you a comprehensive look at congestion in most metropolitan areas. Best of all, you won't have to pay a penny more for this service over the life of your nüvi.
Travel the globe with confidence
Finding a destination is easy and intuitive, and Garmin gives you 8 million searchable listings for everything from food to attractions. Want to remember a special spot that's not listed among the points of interest? Upload your own custom spots for future travels. The 4.3" screen makes the 2475LT perfect for viewing on the road but not too big for your pocket, and you can view it in display or portrait orientation, depending on your needs.
Text-to-speech voice prompts say street names at turns, and Lane Assist helps point the way through tricky maneuvers. In select instances, the screen will split automatically to give you a photoReal view of the junction so you'll have a clear picture of the next turn. When it's time to leave the highway, the navigator can give you all the options near the exit whether you're seeking food, gas, or a bed for the night.
Its very easy to use and with factory installed maps of Europe you can not beat it for the price and its a Garmin.

Map View Options: You can choose from a 3D map view or two 2D map views (Track Up or North Up) as you navigate to your destination.
Speed Limits: As you travel along a major road, the speed limit is displayed on the screen alongside of the vehicle's speed display. If you are exceeding the speed limit, the color of the vehicle speed indication changes to red. If the highway's posted speed limit has changed since the last map update, you can change the speed limit display on the unit.
Where Am I?: The "Where Am I?" feature gives you instant access to important information in case of an emergency. When you select "Where Am I?" from the menu, you get the coordinates (including elevation) of your current position, plus the nearest address and intersections. There are also buttons to help you locate the nearest hospitals, police stations, gas stations, and roadside assistance. You can also save the location for future reference.
Garmin Locate: To assist you in finding your parked vehicle, the Garmin Locate feature saves your location to memory when you remove the device from the windshield mounting cradle while the device is on. You can search for your vehicle's location using the Last Spot button in the menu.
Pedestrian Navigation: In addition to vehicle navigation, the nüvi 2475LT can also be useful when walking around town. If you have the optional cityXplorer maps loaded into the unit, the pedestrian navigation feature adds public transportation options as you travel on foot.

In addition, you can purchase icon and voice bundles with Star Wars (Yoda, Darth Vader) and Nickelodeon (SpongeBob SquarePants, Dora the Explorer) themes.
trafficTrends: When the trafficTrends feature is enabled, the nüvi 2475LT automatically records historic traffic data and uses that data to calculate more efficient routes. This information is sent to Garmin when you connect your device to myGarmin (your personal account site on the Garmin website) using your computer.

Playback controls include play, pause, fast forward, fast reverse, next chapter, and previous chapter.
Note: The nüvi 2475LT cannot play digital music files.
GPS Simulator: When indoors, you can activate the built-in GPS simulator and practice using the unit. This turns off the GPS receiver so it's not searching for satellites, saving battery power.
ecoRoute: The optional ecoRoute feature calculates the fuel economy and the fuel price of navigating to a destination, and offers tools for improving fuel efficiency. The ecoRoute application can be purchased from the Garmin Online Store.
