Summary: I tried using this right out of the box but it wouldn't acquire the signal from the GPS satellite. I updated the software from Garmin's website and it worked right away. It gives excellent directions and the interface is easy to use. I was skeptical because this is an older unit and this is the first GPS navigation device I have bought, but this is great!
Summary: We love our Garmin. I learned to use one from a friend who had one, and saw another one when we traveled with friends, and so we jotted down the model number and bought the same model from amazon.com and it is alot of fun to use, watching the little car going over bridges, etc., and when you see things on the screen coming up, and look out the car window, there they are. And you can see every street coming up, in advance.
Summary: It was a replacement for my portable 260W which was lost/stolen. To begin with the Model Numbers were very confusing to me and I couldn't find any details of the different models from the Garmin's Website. The seller had inserted a note stating that I could download the instructions for use from the Garmin's website which was not of any help to me. It so happened that I had the instruction manual of the lost/stolen model and that was of great help.
One of the best electronics devices that I've ever bought.
