Summary: I bought this for my daughter and ended up buying another for myself. This unit comes with the maps for the 48 states. Other models of the 1250 have maps also for Canada. The display is 3.5 inches which sounds small but in practice is great. Since you are usually listening to the directions more than looking at the screen, the smaller size is ok. It actually is advantageous since it blocks less of the windshield.
Summary: All the products I bought though Amazon.com has met or exceeded my espection especially the Telebrands Orgreenic 10 -piece set. I have already recommended it to my family and friends to purchase it. The Garmin nuvi Navigator has been very useful, however it did not have the latest uadate.
"WORTHLESS AWFUL PIECE OF GARBAGE" would be an understatement...

Summary: I bought this so I didn't need to continually rent one went I rent a car in Manhattan. I am familiar enough driving around NYC that I have mainly have been using this when I take weekend trips driving. Let's start with what is good about this device: nothing. Why is this an awful GPS? For starters the routes it chooses are absolutely awful.
Summary: OK, I bought this device at Best Buy because I needed one quickly. I think I will buy another one with Bluetooth to use in our 2006 Sonata that does not have Bluetooth. This is my second GPS and I decided to buy another one for the upgrade in features and instead of a $70 map update. My son uses the original just to navigate around the Twin Cities, MN to find new bars.
Summary: When I first purchased this product, it worked perfectly. After two years and countless updates, many problems now exist that weren't there before. Elevation numbers are randomly added as categories, the touch-sensitive screen jumps all over the place, and the battery life is almost nonexistent. I have emailed support more than once, and each time they tell me that an update will fix these problems, which none have!
This is a great product that we would recomend to anyone looking for One

Summary: never thought i needed a gps. now i wont be traveling without one.this garmin is great. my wife is afraid she has been replaced. it does get confused sometimes but we never argue with it.we just let it recalculate and move on.
Summary: Sometimes the device works and sometimes it wont, meaning that it is unable to load in times of need. Even in the middle of the city it only works half the time for some reason. When it does work, it is accurate and easy to navigate.
