Summary: Being new in US I needed something to start with for ease of my job and easy commuting. Garmin Nuvi 250 is a nice pocket size device with a 3.5" screen, and very easy use of programming. I found it handy, easy to use and easy to feed in the desired location. I suggests names after just typing the initial two letters and you get a choice to select your desired city and streets, that is all and go. I found it convinient at a good bargain at its price.
Summary: I just wanted to get an inexpensive GPS for occasional driving to new places. I thought this one would come with the charger, but it doesn't. You have to charge it before you turn it on, so I had to order a charger. It's okay for the price I guess.
Summary: This site came with a chat feature and they even helped to get the right garmin for me even when what I had originally looked at was more money. Can't do better than that.Wow- glad to see that there are still companies like this.
Summary: great product for the money. I used it to go to the drag race's in Ennis Texas right after I bought it and it worked perfect. It tells where certain places to eat were we were looking for and even our motel where we stayed, I gave it to my niece and bought another one just like it for my personal use.
Rather small screen, but like it better than Magellan

Summary: Works fantastic. I have a Magellan and it sometimes heads me in wrong direction. This one has never failed to give correct directions. Near Washington, DC, I was looking for a certain restaurant and it kept sending me around the block. I finally realized it was correct, because the restaurant was in a mall. Tall buildings may be your only problem as with any other GPS.
Summary: Purchase this device several years ago for my wife, and she is still using it today. Garmin is an excellent company, and their products are reliable with good customer service. Would highly recommend purchasing this device or any Garmin GPS unit.
