"Great GPS! Highly Recommended... Garmin Rocks!"4.0 starson by uneqstylez
Pros: Nice vibrant high quality screen. Fast acquisition of satillites = quick route calculation! Good quality sound. Easy to understand language options. Built-in Bluetooth and FM transmitter. Nice esthetics on this model.
Cons: A little pricey but well worth it if you can appreciate the extra features plus its a Garmin. Have to press a little harder on the screen to register a command compared to my older Garmin GPS (nuvi 350). Not a problem, just have to get used to it.
Summary: I don't usually write reviews but this site's star average rating was skewed negatively (IMHO) due to the sparse amount of quality reviewers. I have had a Garmin Nuvi GPS (nuvi 350) for a couple of years. I decided to upgrade to this unit in which I AM VERY PLEASED! Not only does this device acquire satillites faster than my old one, the screen resolution has also improved. This gives the unit a brighter and more vivid graphic display which enables the user to visualize the details better. The options are great and the points of interests are abundant. Further, I really like (as with my older GPS unit) the Text to Speech feature in that this unit says the street names and destinations. The bluetooth feature is great to pair up with your bluetooth enabled cell phone. I believe this unit has a lifetime FREE traffic updates (which I haven't used yet). Moreover, you can use the built-in transmitter to broadcast the directions over your car's FM stereo.
DON'T BELIEVE THE GARMIN HATERS ON THIS SITE... THIS UNIT IS AWESOME!
IF YOU WANT TO GET A GREAT GARMIN AT A LOWER PRICE, BUY THE GARIN 265. I BOUGHT IT FOR MY GIRLFRIEND AND IT ROCKS TOO! Low price + Text to Speech = GREAT BUY!
