Excerpt: I bought this as a gift for my Mom. She is not the most tech savvy person in the world, and after a few quick lessons on how to use it, she navigated a several hour trip all on her own. She had no complaints with using the device nor did she get lost! In fact, she actually made it to her destination on time!
Pros: Accurate, Extensive Base Map, Intuitive Menu, Large Screen, Quick Navigation, Quick Signal, Reliable Reception, Simple Controls
Summary: I also have a Garmin Nuvi 265T and bought this as a back up. In fact, I like this one better than the 265T! All the chargers etc. that worked on my 265 works on this Nuvi 2250LT as well. I like the 3.5" square screen better than the widescreen ones, so I highly recommended this one.
Summary: Nice compact size! It does what it is supose to and the price is right. Got mine used for like $40! Did resurch and this fit the bill didn't need bluetooth but had everything else I was lookn for. That's all I have to say about that!
does what I need, but small screen needs bigger fonts

Summary: I bought this because my nuvi 250 had run out of room to receive map updates. I travel a lot for work, often to locations that google or mapquest can't easily find. I needed to be able to update the maps for all of North America and still retain my saved favorites. All the reviews I read pointed me to a larger unit but because I travel with it, I wanted the smallest one possible. Now I see why the larger units are better.
