"Everything I needed"4.0 starson by DonClark92586
Pros: Memory resident maps require no data connection as my smartphone did. WiFi is great for street address and telephone number lookups, and local weather. Email works fine too. Camera is good enough to photograph an accident. No monthly fees- I like it!
Cons: Bigger screen would be nice, but I know from my 4.3 smartphone that websurfing is an illusion anyway. They only work "well" for retreiving the few small bits of data I mentioned, uless you "zoom" and "scroll" for days. Bluetooth would have been nice.
Summary: Nice device for us prepaid cell users who don't want to pay a monthly fee for the cellular data connection as a smart phone requires (I sold my HTC G3 smartphone). As with any WiFi device, you need a WiFi connection to get your email, the local weather, and the phone number and address lookups from the internet. But you can get that connection if you stop at any coffee house while you are out on the road, or your friends house, whatever. Most of the other apps, even on an iphone are junk. You would go blind trying to read a book on any smartphone. And the leveling app- Who the heck uses that anyway? I think the Garmin 295W has the few apps that are useful, and leaves out the gimics. And an SD card to expand memory at my will? Sweet. I wish ipod would adopt the SD card slot!
