To me, a 4.3' is more than good enough and it is more portable than a 5' in your pocket. Trust me, I have been using the 2465 frequently since I bought it despite also having the 3790 and 765 and it is excellent! It's satellite log on is second to none, which even the top end 3790 cannot compete.
haha thank you

you are right i am going to buy it for the purpose of driving around in the US - if i am only going to drive locally i will get the 2465 local model for sure, but there are no free US maps like malsingmaps that I know of, so if I buy the SG model then I have to pay for another US map, but if I buy the US model I can still at least use it in SG later, even if got no JCV or LA... I find in SG, no lane assist still not so troublesome, even if I miss the turning, how hard is it to drive on a bit and then U turn to come back, or take next exit? usually not a big problem, and I am already familiar with most places.

i think fast satellite connection very important, i remember one time I sit in the car rental lot under hot sun (in summer!!!) waiting a loooooong time for the gps to acquire so I can drive out... not good! so now I am hoping for fast satellite acquisition. the Amazon reviews don't seem to talk about this so was just checking, if the "hardware" is basically the same between the US 2450/2460, and the SG/MY 2465, then that is the right model for me :-)

Yeah, I think the 2465 and other 2xxx models all belong to the latest 2xxx series. Well, since u need to have the US map, by all means go ahead with a US version device. Like what you said, JCV and LA is not so critical in Sg. I rarely use them too. Fret not, future release of the MSM v5.xx map will slowly incorporate the JCV and LA. Best of all, the JCV and LA for this map will display in all devices regardless of version as long as the model supports it.

There is another feature for Nuvi 2465 that I forgot to mention.
If you would always like to look for different routing option, you could do this:

1) Go to the "Tools" -> "Settings", select "Navigation"
Image

2) Select "Car"
Image

3) Select "nuRoute"
Image

4) Select "Calculation Mode"
Image

5) Select "Prompted"
Image

Now, back to main menu and make a destination point for navigation.

You will then presented with 1st option of routing overview -Faster Time (route line in blue)
Image

Pressing on the arrow button beside, you will be seeing 2nd option - Shorter Distance - route line in green
Image

Next, Cost Saving routing option in yellow color, if you have setup the ecoroute properly.
Image

Make your choice \:D/

Does the unit lag when it calculates the "prompted" routing?

The unit seems to take forever to calculate the three different routes.

The 1st time I tried it, the calculation seems slow. But when I restart and repeat, it seems pretty fast in calculation. Perhaps it was memory issues after a lot of simulation.

to all sifus...i've loaded 2 additional maps MSM NT5.15 and Indonesian Navigasi into my SD card. I have renamed 1 of the *.img files since we cannot 2 same files exist.

When i checked in Mymap. I can see only 1 map (the one that i retained the name). any workaround so that i can view all my loaded maps? Thanks in advance

In the SD card, place MSM in the Garmin folder. Filename of the map must be "gmapsupp.img". In the Garmin folder, create a JCV folder for the JCV file.

For other maps, create a Map folder in the root of SD Card and place them there. Filename can be anything.
