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 felt like I needed to be up to date. So I sold my older versions, and I was able to make a quick $300.00!
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 knew that I would spend the next day and a half setting up the piece of crap until I started screaming and losing by hair. However, as if by miracle, when I opened the box, it just sat there ready to be used.
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!
Summary: This is my first GPS and I am very happy with it. It's a very useful gadget. Has Wifi and a digital camera. It solves all my location problems. I can find whatever place I need (gas stations, restaurants, hospitals, etc) thanks to its pre loaded maps. Does not matter if I am in the car or walking. Works like a charm. Totally recommended. Pros: Size, portability, wifi, camera, price Cons: Just a little bigger screen would have been nice. Hope this helps.
Keep your phone but get this. Exceptional Value for the Almost All In One Gadget it is!!!

Summary: While not a beginner's GPS, this nüvi makes a fascinating gadget for the tech minded traveler. I'm new to GPS navigation but not gadgets. For what I paid as a Gold Box offering, this is one of the best gadgets I have ever acquired. Garmin nüvi 295W 3.5-Inch Widescreen Wi-Fi Portable GPS Navigator This device started life in the Halls of Garmin as a smartphone! Yes, it looks, feels and acts like the G60 nüvifone but without the GSM cellular transciever.
Amazing product. Strong Brand, very acceptable in Brz

Summary: I´m very satisfied with this product. The connection thru cam and gps coordinate is so useful to assign adresses. The Wi-fi is great on hotspot gas station and provide fast access to web to check emails. Great Item. Thin and small but does not make any problem to vision. I really recommend that.
5 Stars - For what it is, instead of what it's not!

Summary: Can't understand the negative reviews for the Nuvi 295w. It's not a 4.3 or 5 inch screen. It doesn't have lane assist or bluetooth or traffic. It won't be audible over your loud car radio. If you're expecting those features in a GPS, choose a high priced Nuvi model. But if you want a small, accurate, portable, text-to-speech GPS with some added bonus features, you can't beat this unit. I got this on Amazon's Deal of the Day and it was a steal.
