- Good points:
- Having had another make of sat nav before we find this a pleasure to use. Spoken instructions are incredibly accurate and street recognition very helpful. Lane recognition makes difficult situations very easy and takes the stress out of navigation. We love it.

Also known as: Garmin Nuvi 2340Satellite Navigation Buyers Guide
Simple to use, the compact nüvi 2340 sat nav packs high-end navigation features into an entry-level sat nav. It comes with Lane Assist with PhotoReal™ Junction View, speaks street names and has preloaded maps for Western Europe (24 countries). myTrends™ learns and predicts your favourite routes based on time of day and your location and ecoRoute™ helps calculate the most fuel-efficient route to your destination.
Experience nüRoute™ Technology with myTrends
With myTrends advanced routing capabilities, nüvi 2340 learns your driving habits and recognises your favourite destinations to predict where you’re going. This saves you time manually activating a route on repeat journeys and refines your route-planning based on previous trips. So whether you’re driving to and from work or to a regular weekly event, your nüvi 2340 sat nav will help you get there on time.
A Helping Hand on Unfamiliar Roads
nüvi 2340’s PhotoReal™ junction view provides a realistic reproduction of road signs and junctions along your route, with stunning landscape detail for exceptional clarity down to the exact trees and pylons! With Lane Assist, there’s no more guessing which lane you need to be in at upcoming exits and junctions, with arrows that indicate the proper lane for navigation. So there’s no need to panic, hesitate or make last-minute lane changes, even on unfamiliar routes.
Unique Speed Cameras
Garmin’s unique Cyclops™ speed cameras are built in, giving real-time, reliable and accurate alerts, overspeed warning and speed limit information as you approach one of hundreds of fixed, mobile, variable limit and temporary safety cameras. New or moved cameras are constantly tracked and the central database is updated by Cyclops daily. nüvi 2340 also contains speed limits for all major routes plus Garmin’s new speed limit reporting, which enables you to manually correct / update speed limit information and share any changes via USB.
Find Fuel-efficient Routes
nüvi 2340 saves you fuel and money with ecoRoute – Garmin’s innovative green feature that calculates the most fuel-efficient route, tracks fuel usage and more. You can choose to take the “less fuel” option as a routing preference and when selected, nüvi will determine if a more fuel efficient route exists based upon road speed data and vehicle acceleration data. ecoRoute helps you develop more efficient driving habits, calculates trip cost and enables accurate expense reporting too.
Complete Door-to-Door Navigation
With its pedestrian navigation capabilities and sleek and compact design, nüvi 2340 is the perfect travel companion in and out of the car. Download optional cityXplorer content and navigate new cities like a local. Garmin’s enhanced pedestrian mode gives you directions for walking including footpaths and shortcuts through parks – places you wouldn’t be accessing while in your car. It also tells you where to catch trains, buses and tubes (dependent on the city) and how long it will take to reach your destination. cityXplorer even contains public transport timetables to ensure you arrive at the station on time and help avoid long waits (dependent on the city).
Get Turn-by-Turn Directions
nüvi 2340 has an intuitive interface that greets you with two simple questions: “Where To?” and “View Map.” Touch the colour screen to easily look up addresses and services and get voice-prompted, turn-by-turn directions with spoken street names for extra route awareness with no need to look at the sat nav screen. Garmin’s new Trip Planner feature provides a multi-route preview so you can visually compare the available routes before selecting your preferred journey.
It comes preloaded with City Navigator® NT street maps for Western Europe (24 countries), preloaded points of interest (POIs) and speed limits for most major roads. Its digital elevation maps show you shaded contours at higher zoom levels, giving you a big picture of the surrounding terrain. With 2340’s enhanced user interface, you can slide your finger to conveniently scroll between screens. You also can upload custom points of interest (POIs). And with HotFix® satellite prediction, nüvi calculates your position faster to get you there quicker.
Where am I?
The Where am I? emergency locator is a safety feature that can be very helpful if you break down or need a local service urgently. Simply tap the car icon on the map screen to get your exact coordinates, address and junction, contact details for vehicle recovery services and directions to your nearest hospitals, police and petrol stations.
Go Beyond Navigation
Navigation is just the beginning. nüvi 2340 features many travel tools, including JPEG picture viewer, world travel clock with time zones, currency converter, measurement converter, calculator and more. With photo navigation, you can download location-tagged pictures from Garmin Connect™ Photos and navigate straight to the scene – ideal for getting to places which don’t have addresses and landmarks or recreating a memorable holiday or road trip. Download custom voices and vehicles absolutely free from our Garmin Extras collection and enhance your travel experience with optional plug-in microSD™ cards for interactive tour guides and details of and directions to reviewed and rated destinations.
