Question Garmin nüvi 250W - Anyone have it? - December 26, 2008, 07:20 AM

Does anyone have a Garmin nüvi 250W? I'm thinking about getting one with my AMEX points so I'll actually be able to find my way around Nova.

Just wondering if you like yours, if you have one.

they're all about the same...if you've used one then you get the idea...some features that I like are POI display on the map, audible street names, and to be able to pick waypoints along a route...I have a garmin (cuz of the hype) and I hate the sat coverage sometimes...doesn't seem to keep up while driving in dense areas (city, trees) etc...

I bought one for jtatooz last year. She uses it all the time. I guess her only complaint is the map updates but that doesn't happen very often.


God Speed Jeff! You'll never be forgotten.

I got a Garmin nuvi 200 series for X-Mas this year! I've been playing with it for the past two days and I have no complaints! Garmin is way better that Magellan.

Garmin is awesome...Dodge got me one since I can't read a map for crap. And this thing is awesome, heck we convinced my parents to get one. They are enjoying the ease of the Garmin, still working on getting it right but mostly no complaints.

Grab a ram mount for it. If it's a hard drive model it won't like the bike too much so hopefully you bought a service plan! Easy enough to make it waterproof. Take one zip lock bag, and some stick on velcro. If woman don't find you handsome, they should at least find you handy.

Putting a nuvi on a bike is asking for trouble unless you dont plan on being in the rain...ever. It is not waterproof at all. Get the zumo point blank.

Both are good GPS's but only the Zumo is WP.

I've had a Garmin Nuvi 770 for about 3 months now. No complaints at all. I love the thing and it always comes in handy. The 200 series should be good enough cuz they're all similar. The 700 series just has a bunch of useless extra features.

I figure it will be in my pocket or in my trunk most of the time, I wouldn't have too much faith in a mount anyways... I just want one so I can ride all day then when I wanna head home have it point me in the right direction. I plan to do a lot more long rides this summer than I have previously, so I figure its a decent investment. It has Solid State Memory so no hard drive Failures from bumps anyways. If you go fast enough, it wont get wet... Or I can at least play it like that.

I only had to pay $3.11 because I had enough Amex points to cover the rest.

Just don't take it on days it's calling for rain and you'll be covered!
