Summary: I've owned Lowrance aviation gps units, so I already knew they build high quality units, with lots of features, at prices much lower than Garmin units. Lowrance is definitely not a no name nav sysgem, as they pretty own the marine matket..
Summary: Pros: Cost -- I could have spent twice as much for a better unit but this meets my needs just fine. Size -- Small size fits fine over one of my A/C vents. Much better than using the included suction window/dashboard mount. Memory -- I purchased a low cost 2GB SD memory - works just fine as a backup.
Summary: I have not had much experience with automotive gps, but the Lowrance brand is great for marine. The 250c loaded up great and I had no setup difficulties with it. The one odd thing was that it was preset on locked mode, so that if you were moving and it locked on to the sats, you could not access...
Summary: I picked up this GPS because I had trips coming up to Atlanta and Chicago. I had always heard that Atlanta is difficult to navigate because there are a million streets named "Peachtree" so I wanted something to help me get around, especially since I had never been there.
Summary: I've been using the 250c for about 2 months now and overall I'm happy with it. Generally it gives directions that will get you where you are going, but sometimes it is not the most direct route (for routes I know).
Summary: This is a great product , the only bad thing that i didn't like about was that it's just a pain to cancel your route destination, and you don't see the streets name while your driving. It feels like you are driving in the desert.
Summary: It takes hell of a time to locate the position initially.It takes about 7-10 mins of time. But once done, GPS works fine. Also the turn by turn navigation is sometimes not that quick.Initially we thought that the GPS Stand cannot bend as there were no instructions in the leaflets / instruction guide...
Summary: For the price it does a great job. There's not a lot of poi that I look for , but if you put in an address it gets you there. I used it from NY to SC and around Columbia and it has done a really good job. If I had $800 to spend then that would be a different opinion. Best bang for the buck.
Summary: I bought this unit to use on trips where we get a rental car. I discovered that the car rental companies charge up to $11/day to rent them. In the past, this was still considerably cheaper than buying one but with the advent of inexpensive units like the i250C, I decided the tide had turned and it...

Summary: Purchase the iWay 250c for my 15 days vacation to Orlando and did not regret it. My options at the time was to rent a vehicle with a navigation system at a cost of $10.00 per day or buy one which I would not be able to use in my country ( I am from Trinidad W.I.).
