    I need something fairly basic for UK car driving to replace my old and knackerd nuvi 1490 which has served me well for a goodly few years.

    The 2517LM seems to fit at a good price, no frills and lifetime maps so a likley contender.

    What I can't find on either the Garmin website or any review websites is confirmation that it will accept co-ord input in all 3 formats.

    I know that's become fairly standard these days but I just want to see it in print before I dig out my plastic.

    Anyone prepared to guarantee it has what I'm after? :) :)......... or just maybe point me towards a link that says what I want to see.

    Not an absolute guarantee but the wording in the user manual is the same as that in the manual for my 2569LMT and that allows both datum and coordinate formats to be changed (including 3 digital formats).

    Just checked the 2569. Formats supported are Gaus-Boaga West, h ddd.ddddd, h ddd mm.mmm, h ddd mm ss.s, MGRS, Swedish Grid RT-90, Swedish rid SWEREF 99TM, US National Grid and UTM.

    It's the same on the Camper 760 LMT-D so I would guess it is standard across the range.

    Thanks Graham - I was pretty sure that feature was there but couldn't see it described as I was expecting to see it.
    I do tend to make snap decisions to buy things only then to find out............. so this time I though I'd ask around.
