Garmin Nuvi 250W GPS
This is an excellent product at an excellent price. My internet search showed the list price at $349.00 and while this unit is refurbished by Garmin, it is in perfect new condition with new packaging an a one year warranty from Garmin. Everything is identical to making a purchase at a typical retailer except the price. The Nuvi 250W is extremely simple to use. I was up and running with it instantly ~ even without the "quick start" manual. It gives accurate directions with street names in the text and "turn right/left in ### of feet" audio commands. The graphics are vivid and easy to view. The wide screen is a plus and worth the small extra cost, in my opinion. It is perfect for travelers as it is portable and will locate restaurants, hotels, transit, shopping (etc.) by category or by entering specific locales. For greater flexability, I recommend an AC home charger as the charger that it comes with is a car charger. I am extremely pleased with my purchase.

Pretty good for my first GPS
This model was my first entry into the GPS world. I was pleasantly surprised by the interface which made entering in addresses or even finding generic locations like "nearby Chinese restaurants" mindlessly easy. I'd call this an ideal GPS in the $150-200 range.
I do have a couple knocks on this product though. Firstly, the map doesn't give directions to residential areas well, with their snaking roads and cul-de-sacs, and I tested mine in suburban Kansas City. Secondly, the GPS doesn't ship with two crucial items for non-techies; an installation CD and a USB cable to connect to your computer. Upgrading the map took forever and was a very buggy process that a non-techie might not get through since software needed to be downloaded from the internet.

Your darn tootin the car payment is late. I am not gonna pay it either. I recall bringing it in to have a slave cylinder placed in it, NOT ONCE but twice. The first one was shot, as you already knew, I am sure. The second one I should not have even been charged for because your men put an old one in it to begin with. I didn't say anything. I was trying to keep the peace. So we brought it in a week later for yet another one and was told I wouldn't be charged for it, Yet I was. I was also told that it was new. Was it? NO it was not. Is this what Christians do to anyone let alone a fellow Christian? No they do not. You cannot continue to cheat people Steve. You cheat anyone who crosses your path. I owe $80.00 on the car, Yet you owe me gas money for running from my home all the way to Maysville to get your pizzas you just had to have , when my back was out mind you. Even tho you had others there that could have gone to Maysville to get it instead of me. You also owe me money from what I paid for both the first and the second slave cylinders being put in. At this time the car is not in my possession, it has not been for two months now. It has not ran for two months due to your lack of honesty. It is sitting at my cousins home whom is an Attorney, he has also came up with more than enough people to go in on the lawsuit with me. If you would like to contact him I will be happy to give you his email address.
We can do this one of two ways, You sign the lien over and send me the money that is owed to me, Or you wait for a sepina that will be sent to you. I have also been working on a class action law suit against Mason County Auto Sales for several reasons. I believe it is within your best interest to go with the first choice. I have spoken with other patrons who all agree that the Class Action Suit would be the best thing for all of us to do If I do not receive the money back for BOTH slave cylinders, and the gas money and the 2 hour pay that is owed to me within 5 days which I believe will possibly be the only way you will keep your business afloat., I will assume you have gone with the second and most destructive choice you could make for yourself and your business.

It's a great product...enough said. It's lightweight, large touchscreen, and is aesthetically pleasing...plus, it does everything it says it does. The Nuvi 250W is a great asset to anyone who wants to get around without getting lost. Garmin has great customer service and reliability.

Garmin Nuvi 250W : Functional and easy to use
I have used my Garmin 250W for about a week and I think it is a GREAT entry level unit. The widescreen boasts great brightness and easy to read streets.
Speaker is very loud and clear (though I usually keep it muted) and very easy to find directions anywhere you want.
It lacks some of the higher end features like bluetooth and voice to text, but for the price it is a very clean functional unit.
The Garmin suction cup is very robust and has not fallen, even during hard cornering.
