Reviews around buy (5.00 of 5)

  • We purchased this Garmin at Best Buy to replace an old one with a bad battery while we were on a trip fully expecting to be able to purchase another Waalace and Grommit voice for it
  • I’ve recently bought one directly from Best Buy and it works well.
  • For the first one, the identical model, it was a mistake to buy it at Best Buy.
  • I had read that the batteries don't last, but it turned out to be the cable, not covered by warranty but only $13 at Best Buy
  • I would highly recommend this version, it was $99, that was less than in stores like Best Buy.

Reviews around size (5.00 of 5)

  • The larger size is nice but not necessarily good when traveling.
  • Overall, I will still use this unit for all my long trips due to the nice sized map, clear directions, the ability to start a new navigation while driving, and the above mentioned items.
  • The screen is a decent size, and I like that it shows decent images of exits to get of as well, especially since sometimes directions that the GPS repeats can be difficult to understand when driving, so being able to glance at the image briefly is helpful.
  • I like the larger size of this gps over my older nuvi 205w.
  • I like the size of the screen and how easy it is to type in information, the touch screen works great, much better than my old GPS.

Reviews around unit (3.88 of 5)

  • It might very well be a great unit, but like I said,"Mine didn't perform well.
  • And the process of registering the unit was a nightmare, in fact, I've tried every way I can think of and it is still not done.
  • My old unit died, liked the Garmin with lifetime maps, bought this one
  • really enjoy this unit its very accurate to with in a few feet
  • I think my unit was defective, so the problems I experienced may not apply to all of this model.

Reviews around map (3.81 of 5)

  • their maps are UNABLE to distinguish between roads and ATV trails
  • I've had the old nuvi 255 and it worked great but did not come with free map
  • I got it for the free life time maps, but the garmin i bought in 2007 for $100 was much better
  • I purchased it because it comes with free map updates for a reasonable price.
  • Navigation instructions are clear and the map looks intuitive (I hate the map on my older Michelin which displays a divided road as two thin separate roads in parallel and there is a huge space between them )

Reviews around screen (3.68 of 5)

  • Otherwise this one has maps that pop up in a split screen and other features I haven't tapped into yet.
  • I also wish the screen was bright for night time use like my old one did.
  • The tiny, complex screen easily washes out in bright light
  • The screen is hard to touch just right, and the order of information to input isn’t doesn’t flow well
  • Inaccurate and slow touch screen (when compared to an older garmin)

Reviews around road (2.41 of 5)

  • It guided me on unfamiliar roads like a champ, changed route when I changed direction & only lost signal once when I was literally in a long underground tunnel, resumed right back up when the tunnel ended.
  • The traffic info came i handy as it would let you know if there was an accident or roadwork ahead causing delays.
  • Further, the device does not update your current location on the map as fast as it should be, which gives a chance for missing a turn or an exit
  • I also like the fact it gets me out of large, confusing parking lots and get me on the right road
  • My elderly aunt wanted this brand, and it is NOT user friendly, doesn't offer bypass routes, and simply didn't work as it said

Reviews around battery (2.26 of 5)

  • I had no such problem, the battery works as it should and lasts a very long time (haven't tested it to see exactly how long, one of these days I will try just to see), although obviously if you're going on a long trip it's probably better to just keep it plugged in if you can
  • second one i received with a dead battery ---- am returning it for refund --- beginning to wonder about the quality of the new garmins
  • The battery drains down pretty fast, and I have to plug it in all the time I'm using it.
  • I dont really need the traffic notification, but having the map pulled up and encountering a problem, does afford an on-the-fly alternative route option to go around it.
  • The traffic info came i handy as it would let you know if there was an accident or roadwork ahead causing delays.

Reviews around letter (1.54 of 5)

  • I get annoyed because of the constant errors, and then when you go to hit the X to erase the wrong letter, the go key is right under
  • After about the 25th time hitting backspace because it punched the wrong letter in I'd had enough
  • Very difficult to get the correct letter -- it seems to always select a letter next to the one I want, and it's not because I have fat fingers
  • Letters are hard to get used to always pressing wrong letters

Reviews around cord (1.00 of 5)

  • I received the 1st one on June 1st and within days it was telling me that I had the wrong cord
  • I'm pretty sure that I was given the wrong cord because my GPS won't connect to traffic
  • Very poor design; you MUST use the special cord that comes with this unit, as it does not work with a standard 5vdc USB cord.
  • Garmin is propagating a serious flaw in its embedded software, after a "lifetime" update you go back to your car and find "incompatible power cord" and so now your traffic no longer works, whereas, five minutes before, before the SW update, the traffic was working fine.

Reviews around model numb (1.00 of 5)

  • I would have no idea what the model and model number were.
  • I purchased most certainly does NOT have the model number nor the serial number anywhere on the OUTSIDE of the unit.
  • And what kind of morons do not imprint the model number or the serial number on the unit?
  • So, if it fails and you have not registered the unit with Garmin nor noted the model number and S/N somewhere, you are stuck with zero product support.
