Summary: This is a very good basic GPS system, it is accurate, good signal strenght, could be better but is OK, I bought it as second hand item so the price was the best, it gives value to your money. Reliable and easy to use.
Summary: I think it's a good gps unit for the car. It's simple to put in the address and overall easy to use. It tells you when a turn is coming with the arrow pointing on the street. It does not speak the street name. It reroutes quickly if you miss a turn. I prefer the map of the Nuvi 200w over my 255w.
Summary: The only negative thing about these units, is the way it tells you directions. At first you will miss turns and be in the wrong place, it takes a little getting used to. That is the only flaw to this unit.
Summary: This is an older model Garmin. I also have a TomTom 130 3rd edition, which I have been using for a couple of years. I got the nuvi because the Tomtom does not announce the name of the street coming up -- and the nuvi doesn't do it orally either, but it does post the name at the top of the screen,...
Summary: Overall Four Stars - I purchased this unit because I was going on a trip up north and do not like to drive in unfamiliar locations. This kind of activity is kept to a minimum, which is why I bought this lower priced GPS unit.
Summary: I have used this unit when I was in a new town. It is great for finding stores and resturants. The directions are sometimes roundabout and it doesnt know about new freeways that have reciently opened . It would be nice if Garmin would offer updated SD chip maps yearly at a reasonable price.
