A mixed blessing

Milo of Croton, Amazon
23 November 2010
  • Summary: The new feature of having the street named rather than just "Turn Left" is very nice but I found real problems when driving in the Upstate of South Carolina. A lot of verified addresses can not be entered.

It was really off

Cindy Lou Who "Cindy", Amazon
18 November 2010
  • Summary: This unit was off by 300 feet at times. And it could not even find my address at home. Got it so I could travel by myself and not worry, but this is not going to work.

Good no frills GPS

Sara, Amazon
13 November 2010
  • Summary: This product came ready to go right out of the box. Just plugged it in, had to wait about 2 minutes for it to acquire satellites for the first time and it was ready to direct me to any location. The maps are easy to read and so far completely accurate (I've had it for about a month).

For the price, you can't go wrong!

Brian Harrington, Amazon
6 November 2010
  • Summary: I'm a pilot and I entrust my navigation to Garmin, specifically a GNS430, which is about $10,000 installed. This little guy is great for getting around in the car. I had a Garmin C340 until not too long ago, however, some thief thought it was better that he had it than me.

Junk

Twowheelz, Amazon
17 September 2010
  • Summary: Broke after 7 months of use. Garmin offered no help. Every time we call the wait time is 90 to 120 minutes. Who in their right mind is going to put up with that?! It means one of two things, either they don't have enough customer service reps or their products are junk.

Worthless due to "Acquiring Satellites"

T. O'Neill, Amazon
27 June 2010
  • Summary: I bought this in January of 2010. From the start, we had problems with it sometimes taking upwards of 30 minutes to acquire a satellite. This is not an issue of the GPS being in my car with no south facing view.

Very nice unit. Garmin 260W

M. Neeley, Amazon
12 March 2010
  • Summary: This is the 3rd GPS unit that I have owned. My first was an older Garmin model. My second was another brand. I decided to buy the Garmin 260W because I liked the first Garmin better than the other brand.

Great Entry Level GPS

Full Cleveland, Amazon
2 March 2010
  • Summary: I have the same attitude toward GPS systems as I do for cell phones. I'm pretty much a low end, infrequent user who every once in a while finds these gadgets useful. To me, simplicity, price and reliability are what counts, not a raft of deluxe features. This Garmin delivers at this level.

Love this Garmin GPS

Dennis J. Morgan, Amazon
9 January 2010
  • Summary: I bought this for my wife for the Orlando area. Our first chance to use it was for a vist to our daughter in San Francisco. We used it to take us from San Jose airport to her home, it worked perfectly and was extremely user friendly.
