Good for the price

Emily, Amazon
24 February 2014
  • 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.

Basic GPS

Din, Amazon

  • Summary: It is very good value for money and easy of use , but it does not have many features which more expensive models have( Audio prompts of streets). It does take a while to relocate the address and there was times in which you follow the instructions and it has to recalculate again and again to get you...

Disapointing GPS navigation device

Simon Raban, Amazon
23 September 2009
  • Summary: After reading a lot of good feedback, I bought this device. It was very easy to use, but its voice navigation was terrible. It also lacked some basic features compared to Tom Tom. I returned the device and bought Tom Tom.

Good entry level GPS.

Ronald E. Long, Amazon
12 September 2009
  • Summary: A good basic GPS. Nothing fancy but should satisfy most needs. When my order was placed in August the Amazon price was $99.99 which I considered a good buy. Since then, the price today, 9/12/09, has risen to $199.99 which is no longer a good deal for this discontinued model.

I would expect more from a Garmin product.

Almost OK

RAH1, Amazon
19 April 2009
  • Summary: I bought this for use on my bicycle as I am inclined to make long excursions and get lost. I already have an older model, 350, which I use in my car and I like very much. I was looking for something around $100 and finally found this discontinued model at $130.

Great value at this point, but...

David Morrison, Amazon
25 October 2008
  • Summary: This is a great little GPS unit for $129, however I'm extremely frustrated with Amazon and how it communicates the latest mapping software on each device. How many sites do I have a research to figure out that in 2008, this NUVI 250 has 2006 mapping software?

Garmin Nuvi VS TomTom ONE

Friend of Bill W., Amazon
22 January 2008
  • Summary: I have owned a TomTom ONE, and this Nuvi 250, and I prefer the TomTom, however there are SOME features the Nuvi has which I would prefer. When you get to your destination, the Nuvi tells you it is on the "Left", or "Right".
