Oh, and which POIs feature corporate logos seems to be solely related to which ones are available to Garmin; it has nothing to do with zoom levels.

While you cannot customize which POIs to display on the 3D moving map, it’s a different subject when you go into browse map mode. There are a few things to note here: First seen on the dezl trucker series, and similar to Magellan’s Exit POIs, this is another new feature that I think people will find very helpful indeed.

There you can drill down through many categories, as you can see below. So much so that it will undoubtedly end up as one of the buttons on my map screen. Recent nuvis had deep menu options that were painful to access.

The advantage here is an almost instantaneous power on from sleep mode. BTW, see the menu icon (three horizontal lines) in the lower right portion of the nuvi screen above?

To fully shut down the device, hold the power button down for three seconds. The icons on the right side of the map screen are termed map buttons. You can tap that to bring up all twelve of the items available for the map buttons, so it’s easy to reach the other nine. You can choose to display any or all of the following on the map: Traffic, Trip log and Places along the road.

Much of this section was covered in my first looks post. You can have up to three of the following: Traffic, Mute, Stop, Phone, Detour, Exit services, Where am I? Enabling the latter will display points of interest (POIs).

One exception is at the end of the “Map changes” section, where I discuss browsing the map for POIs; the other is the final section, “Menu improvements.” There are eight different dashboards available on the 2455LMT. In the screenshot below, you can see that more information appears on the screen if you tap a POI icon.

The Garmjn nuvi 2455LMT is a relatively low-end model in Garmin’s 2012 nuvi Advanced series line, but don’t let that fool you – the 2455LMT is packed with features.

One of the more significant refreshes in recent years, the Advanced series adds several new customization options, improved search functionality and Exit Services.
