Good product! Very good value at a reasonable price!

Summary: Bought unit because using GPS to find a location is the easiest route to go.It works well but is initially slow in locating a satellite. Easy to use once you're familiar with functions. Overall its a decent product at a reasonable price.
Summary: I love the Garmin Nuvi compared to my old Magellan. The voice (who sounds a lot like Jane Seymour..."turn right in .5 miles, go home, and watch Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman...) is very easy to understand. It is very responsive, giving ques at just the right moments. The display is very nice, with even complex interstate loops easy to see at a glance, making driving in a strange place as easy as if you lived there. Even an older person can use this with ease.
This piece of technology has been my lifesaver and it's super easy to use!

Excerpt: I would highly recommend this product. I've traveled across the country with it and was able to locate lodging, food, and places we wanted to visit without needing a computer or internet access. It's durable, affordable, and overall, effective!
Pros: affordable, accurate, helpful
Cons: takes awhile to acquire satellites when setting route
Summary: This GPS system is fantastic! This is quick, accurate and very user friendly. I love how it tells me the time I will arrive, and not how many minutes till I arrive. Other systems may have more bells and whistles, but this has everything you need and is so easy to navigate.
Garmin is always best GPS I have ever have had since 2008.

Summary: Garmin is always best GPS I have ever have had since 2008. The only thing made me angry - very limited software upgrade option. I trust the hardware is almost the same for most of Garmin GPS, so, new software option like 3-D building view must be available for earlier model for affordable price or free of charge.
Summary: Me and my Garmin nuvi 260 are inseparable, and I don't know how I did without it...oh...wait...I do know...I got lost all the time. I got a great price on ebay and it functions perfectly. It has all the features I was looking for, but most importantly it speaks aloud the directions. It also has points of interest stored so that I can access more popular locations.
Summary: I like my Garmin. I used to use my phone but it was difficult to see while driving. I also like that you can customize it with different voices, etc with free software that you get from Garmin..
Summary: The slim, lightweight compactness of this Garmi GPS Model 260 is great. It does not cover your view when driving. The voice is clear and concsise as is the visual video. When off target the recaluclation is rapid. Most of all the Model 260 is very very EZ to use and gets the job done. ETA and Milage is an added plus as are the "points of interests" and "places to eat". Garmin is the way to go..
