Garmin 260W GPS system

This is my second Garmin gps system. The model 260W is wide screen 4.3″ display. Easy to read map. I can read the screen better than my Tomtom710. On and off button is slide; unlike the tomtom710 that stuck often(push in)-when it does not booth I have to reset it. I enjoy this one because it speaks street name(turn right on Main Street). My old garmin 200W does not; I often turn too soon or too late because of that! “where am I” feature is nice, I can save the location so I can re-visit. It does take me where I wanted to go plus the price is right.

This gps 260 w is amazing. the screen automatically adjusts to either day, dusk, or night; when it has recalculate, its incredibly fast; it has options for driving, walking, or if your flying an airplane; it says street names and gives directions in plenty of time; it allows one to zoom in so it shows even the little side streets; and it has so many other features… This gps is amazing. It is the first one i have ever had and is so easy operate straight out of the box. If I would have known having one was this great (especially this one in particular), I would have gotten it years ago and saved so much on gas and wasted time.

This Garmin 260w works very well I have had no problems with it. Thanks Amazon for your fast delivery and handling of this purchase. I have used the GPS several times. It works great.It is really good for expressway traffic when exits and turns come up quick. I like the wider 4.3″ screen.

Garmin has been known as a tool maker Global Positioning System (GPS), as well as the Asus which sounded louder in the PC industry. But in the event they declare CommunicAsia 2009 in collaboration with the launch of their GPS phones.

For this one matter, Asus clearly entrust to the partner, Garmin. Beyond providing digital map users are, in the second GPS device is also capable of making a sound to remind user to take the next step.

There was also a feature ‘Where am I? ” is able to show the way for users who are lost. Enough with one click, a place where you are when it will be tracked and displayed on the phone screen Asus concoction.

Even so, a collection of maps on this phone would need to be updated because not all the state maps are provided. What is certain maps fixed phones tailored to the region it was sold. If you then want to be updated can be done via the Garmin website. Unfortunately not free, there is the cost that accompanies it.
