Looks good. The current one we have is the 2465LM which has given me excellent service. My son does not like the Garmin interface, so I am not sure he will update it. I must say, I was surprised to see the Ganges Barrage route linking Kanpur - Lucknow on his MMI maps. I am not sure whether it is the preferred route or not, since I still have to figure out the MMI navigation.

The 2567LM is 17900 list, so should be be in the 15-16k range on Amazon.

Cross-posting, but does anyone have experience with Android based GPS devices like the one below?

Google Maps is better at finding remote places, and OpenstreetsMap on the Garmin can provide the navigation afterwards.

Here's a video that explains nicely how this can be done: https://www.youtube.com/watch?annota...&v=VMv0yK7XCrY

Hope this helps. Cheers
Superb video. I completed all the steps and exported to my Garmin WT 265 device, but when I switched it on, I could not find that route anywhere. It does figure in my memory drive on the device, when I search after connecting to a laptop.

Any clues? Further, I don't see an 'app' icon on my device, though the video shows it. Also, I'd like you to know that my India maps are on the SD card in the device. The main drive has the US maps that came with it.

My take would still be the same Garmin 25XX series. If you buy the LM* version in India, you get free map updates.
