Excerpt: I’ve only owned 2 GPS devices in my day, and I was satisfied with both of them. But the ones I had were older models, and I felt like I needed to be updated with the newer GPS devices. Because day after day technology is moving forward, and I …
Excerpt: I got the Garmin Nuvi 295W GPS a while ago as a birthday gift. Finally, I was about to join the group of Americans that would never touch a map as long as I live. Of course, I was thrilled but I first sighed a sigh of apprehension. I …
Summary: The Garmin nuvi 295W is a nuvifone but without the phone so the same accessories work with it. It has GPS, maps and navigation, lots of information about urban points of interest from ATMs to parking garages, plus wi-fi for web-browsing and email as well as music and widgets.
Summary: The Garmin Nuvi 295W is a mid-range navigator with built-in wireless. It features the well-known and reliable Garmin navigation with the added benefit of a slightly updated UI. The icons for navigation within the UI are easier to see and access and are accessed through a touch screen scroll screen...
Summary: I purchased this because of the features, I love all the things it can do. Now for the bad, can't hear it at highway speeds, display could be a little larger, takes forever to acquire satellites sometimes. I wish Garmin would come out with a new improved version then I would buy another one.
Summary: WOW!! The Nuvi 295W is defiantly a one of a kind GPS with its available option to connect to WIFI and with its Google search made finding spots very simple and fun. With the power of Google in the palms of your hand makes this GPS so much more useful. Absolutely love this Garmin creation!
I got this for the WiFi, but screen is hard to utilize. GPS is typical.

Summary: Voice clarity isn't great. Touch keys are small & you often enter the wrong letter/number. The WiFi is a great feature, however tough to use the keys. The pre-programmed city & street names make entering addresses a cinch. Small size has good & bad points. Easy to read, hard to enter onto.
Summary: I bought this unit when Amazon had it on special last year. This unit was to be a backup to my Garmin 1490t. I also wanted to geotag a few photos to send back home while on our Florida vacation. It does everything I expected. When the unit is removed from the cradle, it marks the last position.
Summary: Only problem is that it does not say the street names. Tthe unit will say "turn right" and not turn right on Industrial Drive". Another thing is that this unit does not give traffic updates. It is very basic. Other than that, the screen is easy to see and the GPS voice is clear.
