Dependable Navigational Guidance
I am a frequent traveler, blogger and a property dealer by profession. My job demands a lot of driving in order to meet new clients and to search new properties in remote locations. Finding the shortest route to new locations is sometimes a challenge and more so if you are not having a good navigator. Things become even more difficult when I have to direct the client to the same location. I also have to visit unknown locations in order to write my travel blog. Hence, I was looking for a really good GPS navigator which would act like a guiding star amidst the dense forests, lonely deserts, crowded streets and rugged mountains. I had one of the older versions from Garmin with a smaller screen and less features. Many of my colleagues and friends are already using advanced Garmin GPS units and post usage I can comment that buying the Nuvi 57LMT was a good decision.
