I have owned a Garmin before and was very happy with it but I gave it to my sister and needed a replacement. I bought this one on sale on Black Friday and am happy with it so far. The small size can be a little challenging at times. The keyboard is reduced to a chart in alphabetical order since it is not wide enough for a normal keyboard format. It slows me down when typing in addresses, but I'm sure I'll get used to it. It is also hard to read the next direction when it is a longer description, because the font gets so tiny. It is much easier to read if you go to the step by step list of directions, but I imagine it could be tough when trying to follow along quickly and you can't read the exit number. I was glad it came with lifetime maps and a usb cord! Overall, I would say this is a good GPS if you cannot afford the more expensive models, because it will definitely get you where you need to go. If there is not much difference in price or you are willing to upgrade, I prefer the wider screen for a more user friendly experience.

A simple no-frills GPS that is very portable

I am very happy with the Garmin 30LM. It is lightweight, small, very portable. Yet, it has all the basic features you would want in a GPS. You can take it right out of the box, set the language to what you want, plug it into your car cigarette lighter to start it charging, and immediately start using it to navigate with. But, you probably want to customize the settings to your personal preferences. It has a lot of options for doing that. And it has free lifetime map updates. So, you probably want to connect it to your computer with the included USB cable and use the free software on the Garmin website to register your GPS, update it's software, and update it's map file. Although it does not have a specific "pedestrian mode", I plan to carry it with me to navigate as I walk to unfamiliar places. It is small and lightweight. The keyboard on it has all the alphabet on one screen, and numbers and symbols on the next screen. I had no trouble with typing on it accurately. It is exactly what I wanted in a simple, no extra frills, GPS.

I bought the 30 lm in order to get the lifetime maps. I have the 40 (which does not not lifetime maps and is beginning to fail). I find out that the 30 lm does not have the same software as the 40. The 30lm : 1.does not have the qwerty keyboard but the keys run from a-z and it is hard to find the right key since I am used to qwerty. 2. when giving voice directions does not name the street/freeway that you are on, nor does it name the street on which you are to turn. It simply says make a right in 100 yards, then turn right when approaching the corner. 3. if you get off course it does not say "recalculating" to indicate that you have gone off course but simply gives a new direction. THis can be very confusing when you have the last set of directions in mind and it gives new conflicting directions. 4. There is no indication in the descriptions of the product that they have made those changes, especially not naming the streets. I very much like and am used to the other version of software. The images on the handset appear to be the same but I seldom look at the handset but use the voice directions. The manuals are the same for the 30 40 and 50 models but the software is different and there is no indication of that in the manual.

I was looking for a GPS that was small enough to fit in the space available on the dashboard for a GPS in my 2007 Subaru rather than order one. The Garmin nuvi 30LM 3.5" portable was just the ticket. It is small enough to hold in your hand and fits in the space on the dash to store it. The nuvi tells you step by step ahead of time when to turn and what street you are one before the time to turn. It seems to have accurate streets and highways so far. It is very easy to use, gives you all your attractions, gas stations and points of interest. The price was only $69.99 + tax and free shipping with life time maps. I love how easy it is to use and its compact size. I am very satisfied with this product. Overall it is a great buy for the money.

I got the Garmin nuvi 30LM to replace our old Garmin that we've had for years. So far, it's not as user friendly as the old one, the voice doesn't speak as clearly when driving as the other one (in my opinion) and MOST IMPORTANTLY no joke it wanted me to make 4 lefts and 4 rights to get to a place that was just 3 blocks down and on the right hand side of the road!! And that was not the first time it has done crazy stuff like that. I've looked down and the directions it had will have disappeared and all the sudden we're taking a different road...I find this thing to be very frustrating. I'm very glad I'm using this around town and not out traveling where I have no clue where I'm at. I'd have to pray to the heavens that Siri could save me, because I don't think this could help me find my way out of a wet paper bag!
