Very Slow Connection

  • Summary: this product takes forever to connect to a satellite. I am thinking of returning it. It is very unpredictable and if you are in a hurry forget about using it at all.

extremely slow satellite

Summer Runestad, Amazon
1 November 2008
  • Summary: I owned this product for 6 months and although it usually got me from point A to point B it took forever to get satellite reception, which means you are either driving around lost or have to sit in your car for 5-10 minutes until you get a signal for it to calculate the route.

My GPS is trying to kill me.

N. Bruce, Amazon
1 November 2008
  • Summary: I bought this when I moved to San Francisco 3 weeks ago, and at least for SF the Garmin is more than a little buggy. Since SF has several overpasses and freeways over streets, the Garmin has trouble when I go up an on-ramp and often glitches, suddenly thinking I'm on the road below.

  • Summary: Have tried to upgrade the maps on MULTIPLE units for family and have run into a different, serious problem in each case; once the update server was unavailable / overloaded for over a week (begging the question why when I purchase a DVD there should be a dependency on their server at all), and once...

Slow acquiring saatellite signal & clumsy User Interface

sunfish, Amazon
1 November 2008
  • Summary: Takes up to 3 minutes to acquire a signal even under clear sky. Sometimes navigation locks up for no reason. I do not like the user interface because once you are deep in the menu you have to back out one step at a time.

Nuvi 250W takes a long time acquiring a satellite

S. J. Moisan, Amazon
4 February 2008
  • Summary: I would not recommend the Nuvi 250W. I purchased two of these from Amazon and I have been disappointed. They take a long time to acquire a satellite signal. When I was in San Jose it took 5-10 minutes to acquire a signal. I was already to my destination by the time I got a signal.
