haha thank youRedstorm wrote: Unless you are going to be stationed in the US for a long period of time and intend to migrate there, it is wiser to get the 2465 as you will be using it more frequently here and can benefit from the JCV and LA provided by the CN and MSM NT maps. 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.
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 :-)
