Small but nevertheless? Navigation systems are with 3.5-inch display in the industry as an endangered species – too fast it has become accustomed to the much more eye-friendly screens of 4.3-inch class. But is there still a chance – the little and she exploited 2240 LT with the new, 149 Euro expensive Nuvi Garmin.

Towards big brother 2360, Garmin has slimmed down the functions only a little, principally the smaller device offers the same features.

Good handling

The user interface has the manufacturer nuvi 2240 well adapted to the Garmin screen – only four icons per screen will be displayed, which greatly improves the overview. Only at the destination entry is necessarily something close, but here too you can easily work with the device.

The hardware is small and lightweight, the TMC receiver integrated into the cable – you can run the Garmin nuvi 2240 so on foot. For this purpose, a pedestrian mode is integrated, at an additional cost, there’s the City Explorer maps that include also the public transport.

To join the little things such as calculator, phrase book or image viewer. A Bluetooth hands-free system does not exist – but what you but also can’t expect at a price of 149 euros.

On the way liked the simplicity of the Garmin nuvi 2240 went to work. Goals were quickly typed, the Garmin was afloat, and the map display offered a good overview in spite of the small display. Only upon closer inspection showed a certain fuzziness in playback, but at normal sitting distance readability posed no problem.

Less sure the acoustic guidance that something lame comes over and puts the driver rather sleep than motivated was the Garmin nuvi 2240.

One of the best 3.5 inch Navis

In route calculation the Garmin can not access-dependent data on time of day, there is not even a traffic forecast. Inner-city routes were something awkward to the part, but the system does not chose bigger mistakes or long detours. The dam bypass can be the Garmin of nuvi 2240 only the traditional TMC use what is at least a certain degree of security.

Bottom line, the Garmin is Nuvi 2240 LT of one of best Navis with 3.5 inch display – and 149 Euro this still very inexpensive. Easy to take.
