Summary: The Garmin Nuvi 260 offers drivers and travelers a more budget-friendly version of the popular portable navigation devices and includes text-to-speech, but we think the price is still slightly high for what you get.
Pros: The Garmin Nuvi 260 boasts a compact design and is easy to use. It offers accurate directions and some nice tools for the traveler. The Nuvi 260's text-to-speech reads street and POI names aloud.
Cons: Though the Nuvi 260 is more affordable than other models in the series, we wish the price was slightly lower based on the included feature set.
Excerpt: I currently own both a Nuvi 250 and a 260, both of which are excellent and wonderful devices, and the most useful new feature that the 260 has and the 250 doesnâ€™t have is the text to speech feature. This means that the gps system actually says the street name or exit at which you must turn.
Excerpt: The Garmin nuvi 260 is the nicest of Garmin’s budget-line nuvi 200 series. This is a basic, no frills unit, but it has Garmin’s intuitive interface and something the other 200 series units don’t have — the ability to call out street names. That way you’ll get “drive one-half mile, then turn left on Oak Street,” instead of just “drive one-half mile, then turn left.” Other than that, it’s identical to the nuvi 250 .
Excerpt: Il navigatore Garmin nuvi 260 , ultimo nato della casa, riprende nel design e nella maggior parte delle caratteristiche gli altri modelli della gamma Garmin Nuvi 200 , ma se ne distingue soprattutto per il supporto voce con sintesi vocale. Per il resto le caratteristiche restano identiche a quelle della serie da cui proviene, quindi schermo da 3,5 pollici con risoluzione 320x240 pixel, mappe prevaricate di tutti i paesi europei, slot per schede di memoria SD,...
Pros: Batteria di lunga durata, Mappe 2D e 3D, Schermo da 3,5 pollici
