Customer Rating: Summary: Great navigational tool. Comment: If all you are looking for is a navigational tool, this is your unit. For me, this unit delivered everything I needed. I already had an I-Pod, a PDA, and all of the other handy dandy gadgets out there. I did not need a GPS unit to blue tooth, do books on tape, or any of the other non-essential options with the more expensive units. As far as the navigation goes, it delivers. I have even tested the ETA's, distance, speed, etc.. when bored with kids on long journeys and this unit is pretty precise. It is definitely worth the money, I totally recommend it. Customer Rating: Summary: Love my GARMIN NUVI 260 !!! Comment: I just recently purchased my GARMIN NUVI 260 GPS system and I love it!!
I have never owned a GPS system before, and never even had any intentions of buying one. I am not really a "gadget" type of person. I am pretty darn novice when it comes to all the technological devices etc. But, I read a litte about GPS systems, saw that they are now affordable, played with them in the store, and bought one. Now, I LOVE IT!!
The GARMIN NUVI 260 is so easy to use, right out of the box!! I just charged it using my car and the included cord, and I was ready to go!!
I love the TEXT to VOICE feature, as you don't even have to look at the unit when you are driving. You just listen to the voice and it will take you right to where you are going!!
The bottomline is, if I can figure ot how to use t, anyone can!!
I purchased mine from AMERICAN ELECTRONICS in Oak Creek, WI. I worked on the purchase with Matt S., who is the manager of the Electronics Department there. Not only was the price excellent at AMERICAN, they were one of the only places in town that had actual stock on the product!!
Get a GARMIN NUVI 260 and you won't be sorry. Buy it AMERICAN ELECTRONICS in Oak Creek, WI and tell them that Brian sent you. You won't be sorry!! Customer Rating: Summary: I Love My Garmen GPS Comment: I have always been known as the one who can get lost in my own neighborhood. My family bought me this GPS for my birthday in November, and I have probably saved gallons of gas and hours of driving time by having Jill (my daughter named it that) direct me.
One day I needed to find a gas station quickly in an area I didn't know, and entered find fuel, and it immediately led me to the closest station.
It has shown me shorter ways to get to places I go frequently, and when I do something different than what it originally tells me to do it doesn't tell me how dumb I was!
It is easy to use. I had to call to find out how to get it to tell me the street names, but it was just how I had the language set. It's a great unit for most anyone, who doesn't need bluetooth or MP3 capibilities. Customer Rating: Summary: Great Product out of the box. Comment: This GPS is easy to use out of the box. Just plut it in to the charging cord and you can plot your first course. The spoken street names function is wonderful, particularly at intersections with multiple streets converging or on interstates with several exits very close in proximity. The first night I used it I was faced with a major accident that closed the interstate and it rerouted me several times and did so accurately. The screen can be seen clearly, even in bright and glaring light. Customer Rating: Summary: A four-plus with caveats Comment: First - Love my Nuvi. We have traveled everywhere with it and we now travel with confidence. The speech-to-text is essential, in my opinion, and the Nuvi does it well. Don't know how we got along without it.
Second - the caveat(s). Maps are slightly out of date in places as are the points of interest (which is a real bummer). The Nuvi takes awhile to link up. We loved it so much we bought a second one for our other car, though, and it crashed from the very beginning. Sent it back to Garmin and they sent a refurbished one that was worse than the first. Just got back another one today so we'll see how it goes. BUT - the service support at Garmin is very good. Nice, helpful people. Which is probably why - of all the GPS choices out there - I just bought a third Nuvi for my parents. It's good and it works (mostly).
