Excerpt: Garmin is a company located on 151st street, in Olathe Kansas. It stands as a shrine, overlooking a small shopping area, housing a Price Chopper and Knit-Wit Yarn Shop, among other stores. In Kansas City we are proud of Garmin. My Garmin Nuvi 300 was purchased just …
Excerpt: I am not exactly a fan of Sat Navs. I am my father's daughter and he firmly believes in 'following his nose' or if the worst comes to the worse, look at a map! I am the same! I had just about got my head round online route planners and then my husband declared he wanted to get a sat nav.
Excerpt: I just love this gps! it has a very clean design and its small so you can allways carry it in your bag. Before i buy it i've tryed a lots of gps, tomtom included, and this is the best for sure.
Pros: multifunctional, battery up to 8h, mp3 player
Cons: only 300Mb of free internal memory, u have to buy a memory card
Excerpt: Driving on the M6 towards Warwick, Nuvi sent me towards junction 4A instead of jundtion 4 which is easier and it kept on trying to make me turn round at the nest roundabout so as to get back to junction 4A take this junction after recalculating.
Excerpt: I bought one in Comet for £99.99. Pros.: It is light, descent design, easy to carry in pocket. Has strong signal and works even inside house. Cons.: Does not show car's current speed, distance to destination, PIO's along the road. The colour of the maps can not be changed.
Excerpt: I bought one of these a couple of months ago. I reserved it online and picked it up from Comets the following day(they offered an extra discount for doing this) and it told me they had it in stock and it was mine if I turned up and payed for it within 3 day's.
Excerpt: After much research I bought a Garmin Nuvi 300T from Amazon 5 weeks ago, at £169.99. I went for this one as I wanted the free traffic warning system, which is sent via a silent FM channel. So you can see delays and ask the Sat Nav to divert you.
Pros: Great little Sat Nav unit, clear and fast
Cons: Traffic unit doesn't work, software updater doesn't work, hard to get out of windscreen mount !
Good Sat Nav, naughty company to sell goods with known fault!

Excerpt: I’ve been borrowing my friends Tom Tom recently for long trips and found it so good that I decided to purchase my own Sat Nav. I began doing much online research to see which would be the best unit for me.
Excerpt: I bought this as a last minute item for £149 on my way to see relatives. The traffic and weather were both horrendous and I couldn't imagine trying to follow my routeplanner printout!! I got it out the box, plugged it in, attached it to the bracket and away I went.
