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: 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: 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.
Summary: I originally purchased a Garmin 1350 for work, but I found this one and saw the features and decided to buy it on sale. Overall I'm very satisfied with this Gps. I'm going to break down my review into different sections. Consider this a cell phone without the phone calling abilities.
Summary: The Garmin nuvi 295W Automotive GPS Receiver is a good GPS at a good price ($98.00 including shipping) and has a lot of good gps features. I have used it several times and it is a good gps, being fair no gps is perfect and they all make mistakes.
Summary: I recently purchased the Garmin nuvi 295W for our frequent road trips. A few days after receiving the unit, we drove across Florida for a day trip and were amazed at the many features and the unit's accuracy, even on less traveled roads and streets.
Summary: I was intrigued by the combination of options that this GPS offered. Wi-Fi Internet access with a web browser, email and weather updates which are easily accessible while traveling, provided your stops have Wi-Fi access. Plus having a built-in 3MB camera couldn't hurt either.
Summary: Nice slimline GPS unit. I like everything about it. The audio could stand to be a little louder but everything else seems to work fine. Definitely a step up from my 200 unit. Dropped in my sim card with music on it and it's ready to go.
