Summary: I bought my 250 just before we left on a month long trip through the southern US. It performed well. I loved the small size and portability. It was amazingly sensitive and able to pick up satellites even on the ground floor of a two story house. If you are in an off map location like a parking lot, be sure to drive a short distance so that the GPS can determine where you are before you make any turns. I ended up spending 5 minutes getting back on route.
Summary: Easy to use. Helps find our way when traveling. I love that it talks to you so you don't have to look at it while driving. Tells you before its time to turn. So you know ahead of time. Great price an well worth it.
Summary: I ordered the Garmin nuvi for traveling mostly, but instead, have used it extensively while house hunting. I can't imagine trying to search out the properties that I wanted to see without it! It is so easy to use, I simply put in the state and address that I want to find, and hit "go". The turn by turn guide is amazing, and has been accurate 100% of the time so far.
Summary: This Gps is a great item at a good price!! This thing can get you anywhere you want to go at a touch of a button!! These things are amazing on how they work and know where your at at times!! These are great for road trips or anywhere you may want to go!! I highly reccomend one of these for anyone that may need one!! The gps can track any food places and even give you detour around any wrecks or anything that may happen.
Summary: This unit is fast operating and simple to use with a solid quick mount and car charger included. Everything you need to guide you anywhere is in the box. I've been using portable gps units for about 10 years now and this Nuvi 205W is totally amazing for the low price. Forget about all of those traffic warning fm features and other similar junk. This model is a steal and works great!
Pros: Acquires Satellites Quickly, Compact, Easy Menus, Easy To Read, Easy To Set Up, Large Screen, Reliable Performance
Summary: After taking a double vacation with my parents/husband, I saw the frustration in my father's eyes as he tried to navigate Houston without a GPS (they were still using Mapquest paper). I decided to purchase a Garmin GPS for them because my hubby and I have one. They haven't received it yet, but I'm going to surprise them soon! This gps is easy to use and learn shortcuts to.
Summary: This gps is exactly whatI need. It has great clarity, big screen, lots of storage for keeping directions. The only thing it doesn't do is when you reach a street where you will be making a turn, it just says, turn right or left. It does not verbally say the name of the street you are turning on. It does, however, display the name of the street across the top of the screen and keeps you informed as to how far away the turn will be.
Summary: I bought the product as a gift for a friend and found it to be very competitively priced on ebay. I have a Garmi 650 and love it. The only problem I've had with my Garmin Nuvi is that sometimes it takes awhile to find the satellites and sometimes it takes me around in a circle.
Summary: I bought this because I have begun to travel more recently, and some of the places are otherwise hard to find. The nuvi 250W gives clear directions especially inside a city (I live out in the country and even our nearest town is so snall that it is very hard to get lost) Good choce for a first-time user.
Summary: I find this to be a very straight forward GPS system to use. I purchased on before I drove from St. Louis to visit my Grandmother in the mountains of NC and I never got lost once. The GPS even found my favorite BBQ place in a tiny town in Kentucky! It is very easy to use and someone who has never used the unit before should have no trouble using the Garmin. When I first got mine, I opened up the box and handed it to my sister and with in 1 min.
