Customer Reviews

Works great for Nuvi 6504
This mount works great for my Nuvi 650. I had my old GPS stolen because I stupidly left it in the car exposed when I parked my car. Now with this mount, I just put the mount underneath my seat whenever I park and take my gPS with me. This thing is easily removable and it’s remains really really stable when you drive given its weight and design. The mount doesn’t shift or move at all and is a great alternative to windshield mounts because it’s easily removable and does not leave a mark. Highly recommended for Garmin GPS for safety reasons

Works great, stable mount5
I got this to mount my Garmin StreetPilot c550 GPS on my car dashboard and it works great!

Works Great!5
This product rocks! After having the suction cup melt to the windshield I hesitate in buying a new one. This is a little bulkier but it does not move even when taking tight turns. I would recommend this product for anyone who has space on the dashboard.

Editorial Reviews Garmin nüvi 260 3.5-Inch Portable GPS Navigator

Amazon.com Product Description
Garmin’s nüvi 260 combines the thin profile and attractive price point of other nüvi 200-series GPS with directions in real street names. As with all nüvis, you get Garmin reliability, the fast satellite lock of a high-sensitivity integrated receiver, a slim, pocket-sized navigator with a gorgeous display, detailed NAVTEQ maps that lets you search by name for more than 6 million points of interest like stores, restaurants or hospitals, and an easy, intuitive interface.

Which nüvi is Best for You?: Click here to see a quick, simple comparison of features for all Garmin nuvi GPS navigators.

The nüvi 260 comes preloaded with maps for U.S., Hawaii, and Puerto Rico, and features an ultra-slim design.

Text-To-Speech
The text-to-speech feature of the nüvi 260 means that device automatically calls out street names (saying “turn right on Main Street” instead of “turn right in 200 feet.”). This feature lets drivers keep their eyes on the road while navigating through busy traffic and tricky roadways.

Smart, Powerful Design
The nüvi 260W is built with a high-sensitivity GPS receiver for extreme accuracy, as well as an SD card slot for storing your media and additional navigation tools, and a USB interface for loading data. All this is wrapped up in a package that measures 4.8 x 2.9 x 0.8 inches (W x H x D) and weighs just 6.6 ounces. The nüvi display is touchscreen-enabled, making it a cinch to control the device with your fingertips. A rechargeable lithium-ion battery provides up to five hours of battery life depending on use.

Garmin Lock
Garmin’s patent pending theft prevention system that disables the unit from performing any functions until the user types in a specific 4-digit PIN or takes the unit to a predetermined secure location

Navigate with Ease
The nüvi 260 comes ready to go right out of the box with preloaded City Navigator NT street maps, including a hefty POI database with hotels, restaurants, fuel, ATMs and more. Simply touch the color screen to enter a destination, and nüvi takes you there with 2D or 3D maps and turn-by-turn voice directions. In addition, the nüvi 260 accepts custom points of interest (POIs), such as school zones and safety cameras and lets you set proximity alerts to warn you of upcoming POIs.

Important note about map updates: Due to our high volume of sales, almost every Garmin portable GPS navigator sold by Amazon.com will come with the most recent map version. If you ever do need a map update, you can purchase one from Amazon.com at our Garmin Store.

Easy To Use Interface
Garmin’s interface is a key to their success and one of the things that makes their devices such a pleasure to use. Simple controls and sub-screens make it easy to enter or search for destinations and get data about your trip.

Beyond Navigation

Garmin has also added the ability for customers to add custom points of interest (POI’s) from third parties such as school zones and safety cameras.

Like all nüvis, the 260 supports configurable vehicle icons. These fun, customized car-shaped icons come in a variety of colors to add a personal touch to your vehicle’s position on the map.

With this GPS system on board you’ll be prepared to steer clear of traffic with the integrated FM TMC traffic receiver.

Customer Reviews Garmin nuvi 650

Worth it5
I love this device, very user friendly and i can’t find any negative about it. Great price when I bought it and two thumbs up!

Very good but not great4
I bought the 650 for my mother after owning the 660 for about a year. I found I didn’t use the Bluetooth or FM transmitter features at all and figured she wouldn’t either. I find the navigation to be very good but less accurate than the Magellan NeverLost systems I’ve used in rental cars. The Nuvi frequently wants to route me off the highway and thru towns that I know will be much slower. Also, it doesn’t take into account traffic lights and stop signs, so you can’t trust the estimated arrival time it displays.

I use it in the car and on planes to listen to podcasts I’ve downloaded to it, so the dual use is especially wonderful. I found the photo viewer quite poor in that it doesn’t reliably display the pictures full-screen. Also annoying is the warning screen that pops up every time you turn the unit on, whether or not you’re moving. No other type of electronic device warns you not to use it while you’re driving; it’s just stupid, clumsy blather.

Another poor design aspect is the fact that when you lock the interface to avoid accidental touches, the Nuvi displays a static message that it’s locked–even when you are navigating. Instead, it should just display the navigation or audio controls with the screen darkened to save battery life. There are plenty of times that I would be happy to use the thing in darkened and locked mode but the display is useless. Last, the Nuvi should still work while it’s charging or connected by USB like a cell phone does, but instead it displays a static image.

Great GPS; very User-friendly; good battery life5
Purchased this GPS about two months ago and have taken it on several trips. It picks up satellite signal much better than my previous GPS. It is very easy to use and self explanatory. The battery life seems to be very adequate. I have already found a few businesses that no longer exist that are listed. It would be nice if you had a free update for one year. This GPS is small enough to carry in your pocket if needed.

Customer Reviews c340 Garmin GPS

TOM TOM Affordable GPS4
I only rated it 4 stars because it doesn’t announce the street names. They are printed on the screen as you pass them however. You will need to update this unit if you buy it new. There are a few streets here in Houston that deviate a little from the map, but you can make corrections as you go. I wanted a unit that was user friendly (it didn’t take a geek to use it)and was affordable. There are better units out there with all the bells and whistles, but be prepared to pay for them. This one is fantastic in bang for the buck and cheaper than most and my directionally challenged family members can work it with no problem at all. Features like widescreen, etc might be nice for some, but for me I just wanted to be reminded when to turn and directed to my selected location at under $175 it has no equal; if price is $199 or more there are some other units to consider.

Used Everyday for Business5
I bought this item for use in my business having liked it while working part time for another company.Taking customer calls on the go and then navigating to there residence has not been a problem.It very rarely cannot find an address.And when it can’t I assume its due to a neede down load map yearly update.I would highly recommend the Tom Tom One to any one needing a GPS for Business or pleasure.

TomTom5
We just finished a 2,000 trip and Tom Tom was really helpful. Don’t leave home without one!

All of the 700-series navigators also feature a rich array of features including spoken directions in real street names, MP3 player and photo viewer, and an FM transmitter that will play voice prompts, MP3s, audio books, and more, directly through your vehicle’s stereo system.

Which n?vi is Best for You?: Click here to see a quick, simple comparison of features for all Garmin nuvi GPS navigators

New Features — Where Am I? Where’s My Car?
The n?vi 700 series is the first to answer two common questions: “Where am I?” and “Where’s my car?”

At any time, with a single tap of the screen, drivers can display their exact latitude and longitude coordinates, the nearest address and intersection, and the closest hospitals, police stations and gas stations. And to help drivers find their car in an unfamiliar spot or vast parking lot, all n?vi 700s automatically mark the position in which they were last removed from the mount.

New Features — Multi-Destination Routing
This lets you enter several spots into the device (day care – supermarket-cleaners – office – day care, for example) and it will plot the fastest route. And once you’ve found the best router, the “Route Planning” feature lets you save up to 10 different routes, Garmin touts the feature for providing, “the most efficient route for errands, deliveries and sales calls.” The feature also makes this an instant essential accessory for anyone who shops garage sales (you know what we’re talking about).

A trip log provides an electronic bread crumb trail of up to 10,000 points, so you can see where you’ve been on the map.

See Better, See More
The super-bright, 4.3-inch (diagonal) touchscreen display gives is anti-glare for ease of viewing during the day and automatically changes its color profile for easy viewing at night or in dim light. It offers 2d or 3D perspective views.

The widescreen format gives you 70% more actual screen area than a 3.5-inch screen. Primarily this translates into a better view of the area through which you are driving. This is especially useful in showing you what parks, restaurants, ATM, gas stations, etc. are nearby, or in letting you know whether a detour is a good idea. Also, the device itself is larger, meaning controls on the screen are more widely spaced and somewhat easier to push.

First Rate Map Data
All n?vi 700s come preloaded with highly detailed City Navigator NT road maps for the entire United States, Canada, and Puerto Rico. This map database features nearly six million points of interest (POIs), including hotels, restaurants, gas stations, ATMs, and attractions. Garmin gets its map data from NAVTEQ, a world leader in premium-quality mapping.

Important note about map updates: Due to our high volume of sales, almost every Garmin portable GPS navigator sold by Amazon.com will come with the most recent map version. If you ever do need a map update, you can purchase one from Amazon.com at our Garmin Store.

Hands-Free Calling
In more and more places, it is becoming illegal to use cell phones while driving without a hands-free kit. WIth Bluetooth capability, microphone and speaker, you can match your n?vi to any bluetooth-capable phone to make hands-free mobile phone calls. Simply dial the phone number with the n?vi’s touch screen keypad to make a call on a compatible phone. To answer an incoming call, just tap the screen and speak into the built-in microphone. Making and taking calls on the road has never been easier, or safer. In addition, Garmin makes it a breeze to look-up and dial numbers from your personalized phone book or even tap into your cell phone’s call history log.

Integrated FM Traffic Receiver

Steer clear of traffic with an integrated FM traffic receiver designed to receive alerts from TMC Clear Channel about traffic tie-ups and road construction that might lie ahead on your route. All you have to do is simply touch the screen to view traffic details and you’ll be ready to detour around any problem area. And if you end up missing a turn, or you’re forced into a detour that is not relayed through the traffic receiver, the n?vi’s sophisticated automatic routing will get you back on track in no time.
In most areas, TMC Clear Channel traffic broadcasts are continuous — there’s no waiting for scheduled traffic news updates or random alerts. Because traffic broadcasts are received via a “silent” FM data channel, you can still listen to music or news programming on your car radio without interference from incoming FM traffic data transmissions.A 3-month subscription to TMC Clear Channel’s Total Traffic Network is included with purchase of this device. For more information on subscription fees, coverage in individual cities, and traffic data networks in the United Kingdom and Europe, check the Garmin website.

The flip-up antenna includes an MCX-type connector for connecting the unit to an external GPS antenna. Meanwhile, a powerful built-in speaker resides on the back of device. A built-in lithium ion battery will give you for to eight hours of battery life, depending on use. In addition to an AC charger, the unit also ships with a 12-volt power adapter for vehicle charging, as well as a windshield suction cup mount.

Fortunately, Garmin has made it easy to interface with the n?vi 350’s 700 megabytes of onboard memory, thanks to “plug-and-play” USB mass storage support. Just plug the device into your computer’s USB port and you’ve got instantaneous access to all the audio books, music, photos, supplemental maps and other data on the n?vi 350’s internal and SD card memory.

Navigation
The n?vi 350 is first and foremost a personal GPS device. Wherever you go — in your car or on foot– the device offers extremely accurate position data, thanks to a high-sensitivity integrated GPS receiver by SiRF and WAAS-enabled, 12-satellite reception. Combined with detailed maps of the U.S., Canada and Puerto Rico the n?vi 350 provides automatic routing, turn-by-turn voice directions, and touchscreen control– making it easy to find your way anywhere. Plus, the unique “text-to-speech” feature calls out turns by street name, and you can choose from either 2D or 3D mapping perspectives when you’re viewing your route on the display. Additionally, the n?vi 350 is compatible with Garmin’s GTM 10 FM TMC traffic receiver*, which allows users to avoid traffic tie-ups by simply pushing a button that will calculate a new route.

As mentioned, the n?vi 350 comes packed with mapping data for North America, but you can can also load up your custom points of interest. Set up proximity alerts for school zones, safety cameras, and more using Garmin’s free POI (points of interest) loader program (available from garmin.com).

Important note about map updates: Due to our high volume of sales, almost every Garmin portable GPS navigator sold by Amazon.com will come with the most recent map version. If you ever do need a map update, you can purchase one from Amazon.com at our Garmin Store.

Tools for the Journey
Navigation is just part of the journey, and the n?vi 350 is one of the first devices to recognize that. The built-in “Travel Kit” offers an MP3 player, an audio book player from Audible.com, a jpeg-format picture viewer, a world travel clock with time zones, a currency converter, a measurement converter, and a calculator.

In addition to the included travel tools, additional software add-ons are available, such as the Garmin Language Guide, with data provided by Oxford University Press. This software suite contains a multilingual word bank, phrase bank, and five bilingual dictionaries. The multilingual word bank and phrase bank supports nine languages and dialects, including American English, British English, French, German, Italian, Brazilian Portuguese, European Portuguese, European Spanish, and Latin American Spanish. Now you can look up and translate more than 17,000 words or 20,000 phrases per language — right in the palm of your hand. Through the unit’s text-to-speech interface, users can get a spoken pronunciation of each entry in the word bank, along with gender and part of speech information.

Another useful add-on software package, the Garmin Travel Guide, is loaded with information provided by Marco Polo. These guides put in-depth travel information such as reviews and recommendations for restaurants, tourist attractions, and more at your fingertips. The software allows you to navigate to an address or search points of interest– places like hotels, restaurants, shopping, and tourist attractions. The n?vi 350 automatically calculates the fastest route and provides voice-prompted turn-by-turn directions along the way. The unit also audibly announces the name of upcoming streets– letting you keep your eyes on the road while navigating through busy traffic and tricky roadways. And if you stray off course, the n?vi 350 automatically calculates the quickest way to get back on track.

Customer Reviews Garmin nuvi 650

Worth it5
I love this device, very user friendly and i can’t find any negative about it. Great price when I bought it and two thumbs up!

Very good but not great4
I bought the 650 for my mother after owning the 660 for about a year. I found I didn’t use the Bluetooth or FM transmitter features at all and figured she wouldn’t either. I find the navigation to be very good but less accurate than the Magellan NeverLost systems I’ve used in rental cars. The Nuvi frequently wants to route me off the highway and thru towns that I know will be much slower. Also, it doesn’t take into account traffic lights and stop signs, so you can’t trust the estimated arrival time it displays.

I use it in the car and on planes to listen to podcasts I’ve downloaded to it, so the dual use is especially wonderful. I found the photo viewer quite poor in that it doesn’t reliably display the pictures full-screen. Also annoying is the warning screen that pops up every time you turn the unit on, whether or not you’re moving. No other type of electronic device warns you not to use it while you’re driving; it’s just stupid, clumsy blather.

Another poor design aspect is the fact that when you lock the interface to avoid accidental touches, the Nuvi displays a static message that it’s locked–even when you are navigating. Instead, it should just display the navigation or audio controls with the screen darkened to save battery life. There are plenty of times that I would be happy to use the thing in darkened and locked mode but the display is useless. Last, the Nuvi should still work while it’s charging or connected by USB like a cell phone does, but instead it displays a static image.

Great GPS; very User-friendly; good battery life5
Purchased this GPS about two months ago and have taken it on several trips. It picks up satellite signal much better than my previous GPS. It is very easy to use and self explanatory. The battery life seems to be very adequate. I have already found a few businesses that no longer exist that are listed. It would be nice if you had a free update for one year. This GPS is small enough to carry in your pocket if needed.

Customer Reviews c340 Garmin GPS

TOM TOM Affordable GPS4
I only rated it 4 stars because it doesn’t announce the street names. They are printed on the screen as you pass them however. You will need to update this unit if you buy it new. There are a few streets here in Houston that deviate a little from the map, but you can make corrections as you go. I wanted a unit that was user friendly (it didn’t take a geek to use it)and was affordable. There are better units out there with all the bells and whistles, but be prepared to pay for them. This one is fantastic in bang for the buck and cheaper than most and my directionally challenged family members can work it with no problem at all. Features like widescreen, etc might be nice for some, but for me I just wanted to be reminded when to turn and directed to my selected location at under $175 it has no equal; if price is $199 or more there are some other units to consider.

Used Everyday for Business5
I bought this item for use in my business having liked it while working part time for another company.Taking customer calls on the go and then navigating to there residence has not been a problem.It very rarely cannot find an address.And when it can’t I assume its due to a neede down load map yearly update.I would highly recommend the Tom Tom One to any one needing a GPS for Business or pleasure.

TomTom5
We just finished a 2,000 trip and Tom Tom was really helpful. Don’t leave home without one!

Which n?vi is Best for You?: Click here to see a quick, simple comparison of features for all Garmin nuvi GPS navigators

New Features — Where Am I? Where’s My Car?
The n?vi 700 series is the first to answer two common questions: “Where am I?” and “Where’s my car?”

At any time, with a single tap of the screen, drivers can display their exact latitude and longitude coordinates, the nearest address and intersection, and the closest hospitals, police stations and gas stations. And to help drivers find their car in an unfamiliar spot or vast parking lot, all n?vi 700s automatically mark the position in which they were last removed from the mount.

New Features — Multi-Destination Routing
This lets you enter several spots into the device (day care – supermarket-cleaners – office – day care, for example) and it will plot the fastest route. And once you’ve found the best router, the “Route Planning” feature lets you save up to 10 different routes, Garmin touts the feature for providing, “the most efficient route for errands, deliveries and sales calls.” The feature also makes this an instant essential accessory for anyone who shops garage sales (you know what we’re talking about).

A trip log provides an electronic bread crumb trail of up to 10,000 points, so you can see where you’ve been on the map.

See Better, See More
The super-bright, 4.3-inch (diagonal) touchscreen display gives is anti-glare for ease of viewing during the day and automatically changes its color profile for easy viewing at night or in dim light. It offers 2d or 3D perspective views.

The widescreen format gives you 70% more actual screen area than a 3.5-inch screen. Primarily this translates into a better view of the area through which you are driving. This is especially useful in showing you what parks, restaurants, ATM, gas stations, etc. are nearby, or in letting you know whether a detour is a good idea. Also, the device itself is larger, meaning controls on the screen are more widely spaced and somewhat easier to push.

First Rate Map Data
All n?vi 700s come preloaded with highly detailed City Navigator NT road maps for the entire United States, Canada, and Puerto Rico. This map database features nearly six million points of interest (POIs), including hotels, restaurants, gas stations, ATMs, and attractions. Garmin gets its map data from NAVTEQ, a world leader in premium-quality mapping.

Important note about map updates: Due to our high volume of sales, almost every Garmin portable GPS navigator sold by Amazon.com will come with the most recent map version. If you ever do need a map update, you can purchase one from Amazon.com at our Garmin Store.

Hands-Free Calling
In more and more places, it is becoming illegal to use cell phones while driving without a hands-free kit. WIth Bluetooth capability, microphone and speaker, you can match your n?vi to any bluetooth-capable phone to make hands-free mobile phone calls. Simply dial the phone number with the n?vi’s touch screen keypad to make a call on a compatible phone. To answer an incoming call, just tap the screen and speak into the built-in microphone. Making and taking calls on the road has never been easier, or safer. In addition, Garmin makes it a breeze to look-up and dial numbers from your personalized phone book or even tap into your cell phone’s call history log.

Integrated FM Traffic Receiver

Steer clear of traffic with an integrated FM traffic receiver designed to receive alerts from TMC Clear Channel about traffic tie-ups and road construction that might lie ahead on your route. All you have to do is simply touch the screen to view traffic details and you’ll be ready to detour around any problem area. And if you end up missing a turn, or you’re forced into a detour that is not relayed through the traffic receiver, the n?vi’s sophisticated automatic routing will get you back on track in no time.
In most areas, TMC Clear Channel traffic broadcasts are continuous — there’s no waiting for scheduled traffic news updates or random alerts. Because traffic broadcasts are received via a “silent” FM data channel, you can still listen to music or news programming on your car radio without interference from incoming FM traffic data transmissions.A 3-month subscription to TMC Clear Channel’s Total Traffic Network is included with purchase of this device. For more information on subscription fees, coverage in individual cities, and traffic data networks in the United Kingdom and Europe, check the Garmin website.


Garmin Lock

Garmin’s patent pending theft prevention system that disables the unit from performing any functions until the user types in a specific 4-digit PIN or takes the unit to a predetermined secure location

Easy To Use Interface
Garmin’s interface is a key to their success and one of the things that makes their devices such a pleasure to use. Simple controls and sub-screens make it easy to enter or search for destinations and get data about your trip.

Customer Reviews Garmin n?vi 650

Worth it5
I love this device, very user friendly and i can’t find any negative about it. Great price when I bought it and two thumbs up!

Very good but not great4
I bought the 650 for my mother after owning the 660 for about a year. I found I didn’t use the Bluetooth or FM transmitter features at all and figured she wouldn’t either. I find the navigation to be very good but less accurate than the Magellan NeverLost systems I’ve used in rental cars. The Nuvi frequently wants to route me off the highway and thru towns that I know will be much slower. Also, it doesn’t take into account traffic lights and stop signs, so you can’t trust the estimated arrival time it displays.

I use it in the car and on planes to listen to podcasts I’ve downloaded to it, so the dual use is especially wonderful. I found the photo viewer quite poor in that it doesn’t reliably display the pictures full-screen. Also annoying is the warning screen that pops up every time you turn the unit on, whether or not you’re moving. No other type of electronic device warns you not to use it while you’re driving; it’s just stupid, clumsy blather.

Another poor design aspect is the fact that when you lock the interface to avoid accidental touches, the Nuvi displays a static message that it’s locked–even when you are navigating. Instead, it should just display the navigation or audio controls with the screen darkened to save battery life. There are plenty of times that I would be happy to use the thing in darkened and locked mode but the display is useless. Last, the Nuvi should still work while it’s charging or connected by USB like a cell phone does, but instead it displays a static image.

Great GPS; very User-friendly; good battery life5
Purchased this GPS about two months ago and have taken it on several trips. It picks up satellite signal much better than my previous GPS. It is very easy to use and self explanatory. The battery life seems to be very adequate. I have already found a few businesses that no longer exist that are listed. It would be nice if you had a free update for one year. This GPS is small enough to carry in your pocket if needed.

Customer Reviews c340 Garmin GPS

TOM TOM Affordable GPS4
I only rated it 4 stars because it doesn’t announce the street names. They are printed on the screen as you pass them however. You will need to update this unit if you buy it new. There are a few streets here in Houston that deviate a little from the map, but you can make corrections as you go. I wanted a unit that was user friendly (it didn’t take a geek to use it)and was affordable. There are better units out there with all the bells and whistles, but be prepared to pay for them. This one is fantastic in bang for the buck and cheaper than most and my directionally challenged family members can work it with no problem at all. Features like widescreen, etc might be nice for some, but for me I just wanted to be reminded when to turn and directed to my selected location at under $175 it has no equal; if price is $199 or more there are some other units to consider.

Used Everyday for Business5
I bought this item for use in my business having liked it while working part time for another company.Taking customer calls on the go and then navigating to there residence has not been a problem.It very rarely cannot find an address.And when it can’t I assume its due to a neede down load map yearly update.I would highly recommend the Tom Tom One to any one needing a GPS for Business or pleasure.

TomTom5
We just finished a 2,000 trip and Tom Tom was really helpful. Don’t leave home without one!

All of the 700-series navigators also feature a rich array of features including spoken directions in real street names, MP3 player and photo viewer, and an FM transmitter that will play voice prompts, MP3s, audio books, and more, directly through your vehicle’s stereo system. The n?vi 760 and 770 add integrated traffic receivers and Bluetooth capability for hands-free calling. The n?vi 770 adds maps for Europe. The n?vi 780 adds enhanced MSN direct content capability..

Which n?vi is Best for You?: Click here to see a quick, simple comparison of features for all Garmin nuvi GPS navigators

New Features — Where Am I? Where’s My Car?
The n?vi 700 series is the first to answer two common questions: “Where am I?” and “Where’s my car?”

At any time, with a single tap of the screen, drivers can display their exact latitude and longitude coordinates, the nearest address and intersection, and the closest hospitals, police stations and gas stations. And to help drivers find their car in an unfamiliar spot or vast parking lot, all n?vi 700s automatically mark the position in which they were last removed from the mount.

New Features — Multi-Destination Routing
This lets you enter several spots into the device (day care – supermarket-cleaners – office – day care, for example) and it will plot the fastest route. And once you’ve found the best router, the “Route Planning” feature lets you save up to 10 different routes, Garmin touts the feature for providing, “the most efficient route for errands, deliveries and sales calls.” The feature also makes this an instant essential accessory for anyone who shops garage sales (you know what we’re talking about).

A trip log provides an electronic bread crumb trail of up to 10,000 points, so you can see where you’ve been on the map.

See Better, See More
The super-bright, 4.3-inch (diagonal) touchscreen display gives is anti-glare for ease of viewing during the day and automatically changes its color profile for easy viewing at night or in dim light. It offers 2d or 3D perspective views.

The widescreen format gives you 70% more actual screen area than a 3.5-inch screen. Primarily this translates into a better view of the area through which you are driving. This is especially useful in showing you what parks, restaurants, ATM, gas stations, etc. are nearby, or in letting you know whether a detour is a good idea. Also, the device itself is larger, meaning controls on the screen are more widely spaced and somewhat easier to push.

First Rate Map Data
All n?vi 700s come preloaded with highly detailed City Navigator NT road maps for the entire United States, Canada, and Puerto Rico. This map database features nearly six million points of interest (POIs), including hotels, restaurants, gas stations, ATMs, and attractions. Garmin gets its map data from NAVTEQ, a world leader in premium-quality mapping.

Important note about map updates: Due to our high volume of sales, almost every Garmin portable GPS navigator sold by Amazon.com will come with the most recent map version. If you ever do need a map update, you can purchase one from Amazon.com at our Garmin Store.

Hands-Free Calling
In more and more places, it is becoming illegal to use cell phones while driving without a hands-free kit. WIth Bluetooth capability, microphone and speaker, you can match your n?vi to any bluetooth-capable phone to make hands-free mobile phone calls. Simply dial the phone number with the n?vi’s touch screen keypad to make a call on a compatible phone. To answer an incoming call, just tap the screen and speak into the built-in microphone. Making and taking calls on the road has never been easier, or safer. In addition, Garmin makes it a breeze to look-up and dial numbers from your personalized phone book or even tap into your cell phone’s call history log.

Integrated FM Traffic Receiver

Steer clear of traffic with an integrated FM traffic receiver designed to receive alerts from TMC Clear Channel about traffic tie-ups and road construction that might lie ahead on your route. All you have to do is simply touch the screen to view traffic details and you’ll be ready to detour around any problem area. And if you end up missing a turn, or you’re forced into a detour that is not relayed through the traffic receiver, the n?vi’s sophisticated automatic routing will get you back on track in no time.
In most areas, TMC Clear Channel traffic broadcasts are continuous — there’s no waiting for scheduled traffic news updates or random alerts. Because traffic broadcasts are received via a “silent” FM data channel, you can still listen to music or news programming on your car radio without interference from incoming FM traffic data transmissions.A 3-month subscription to TMC Clear Channel’s Total Traffic Network is included with purchase of this device. For more information on subscription fees, coverage in individual cities, and traffic data networks in the United Kingdom and Europe, check the Garmin website.


Garmin Lock

Garmin’s patent pending theft prevention system that disables the unit from performing any functions until the user types in a specific 4-digit PIN or takes the unit to a predetermined secure location

Easy To Use Interface
Garmin’s interface is a key to their success and one of the things that makes their devices such a pleasure to use. Simple controls and sub-screens make it easy to enter or search for destinations and get data about your trip.

What if one device could help you navigate anywhere in the U.S. and Canada, while offering travel tips, storing your favorite tunes and photos, providing translation assistance, and more? That device is here, and it’s not much bigger than a deck of cards. The Garmin n?vi 350 is set to revolutionize what we expect from a GPS navigation device, or from any device for that matter.

Which n?vi is Best for You?: Click here to see a quick, simple comparison of features for all Garmin nuvi GPS navigators

garmin gps low pricesDesign Garmin GPS
With a total weight of 5.1 ounces and slim measurements of 3.87 x 2.91 x 0.87 inches (WxHxD), the n?vi 350 is just right for the pocket or purse. A bright, 64,000-color display dominates the front of the device and a resolution of 320 x 240 pixels means that there’s plenty of room for displaying map data and other elements of the device’s interface. An SD memory card slot is provided for expansion software, such as a points of interest database, media files and electronic guides (see below). The flip-up antenna includes an MCX-type connector for connecting the unit to an external GPS antenna. Meanwhile, a powerful built-in speaker resides on the back of device. A built-in lithium ion battery will give you for to eight hours of battery life, depending on use. In addition to an AC charger, the unit also ships with a 12-volt power adapter for vehicle charging, as well as a windshield suction cup mount.

Fortunately, Garmin has made it easy to interface with the n?vi 350’s 700 megabytes of onboard memory, thanks to “plug-and-play” USB mass storage support. Just plug the device into your computer’s USB port and you’ve got instantaneous access to all the audio books, music, photos, supplemental maps and other data on the n?vi 350’s internal and SD card memory.

Navigation
The n?vi 350 is first and foremost a personal GPS device. Wherever you go — in your car or on foot– the device offers extremely accurate position data, thanks to a high-sensitivity integrated GPS receiver by SiRF and WAAS-enabled, 12-satellite reception. Combined with detailed maps of the U.S., Canada and Puerto Rico the n?vi 350 provides automatic routing, turn-by-turn voice directions, and touchscreen control– making it easy to find your way anywhere. Plus, the unique “text-to-speech” feature calls out turns by street name, and you can choose from either 2D or 3D mapping perspectives when you’re viewing your route on the display. Additionally, the n?vi 350 is compatible with Garmin’s GTM 10 FM TMC traffic receiver*, which allows users to avoid traffic tie-ups by simply pushing a button that will calculate a new route.

As mentioned, the n?vi 350 comes packed with mapping data for North America, but you can can also load up your custom points of interest. Set up proximity alerts for school zones, safety cameras, and more using Garmin’s free POI (points of interest) loader program (available from garmin.com).

Important note about map updates: Due to our high volume of sales, almost every Garmin portable GPS navigator sold by Amazon.com will come with the most recent map version. If you ever do need a map update, you can purchase one from Amazon.com at our Garmin Store.

Tools for the Journey
Navigation is just part of the journey, and the n?vi 350 is one of the first devices to recognize that. The built-in “Travel Kit” offers an MP3 player, an audio book player from Audible.com, a jpeg-format picture viewer, a world travel clock with time zones, a currency converter, a measurement converter, and a calculator.

In addition to the included travel tools, additional software add-ons are available, such as the Garmin Language Guide, with data provided by Oxford University Press. This software suite contains a multilingual word bank, phrase bank, and five bilingual dictionaries. The multilingual word bank and phrase bank supports nine languages and dialects, including American English, British English, French, German, Italian, Brazilian Portuguese, European Portuguese, European Spanish, and Latin American Spanish. Now you can look up and translate more than 17,000 words or 20,000 phrases per language — right in the palm of your hand. Through the unit’s text-to-speech interface, users can get a spoken pronunciation of each entry in the word bank, along with gender and part of speech information.

Another useful add-on software package, the Garmin Travel Guide, is loaded with information provided by Marco Polo. These guides put in-depth travel information such as reviews and recommendations for restaurants, tourist attractions, and more at your fingertips. The software allows you to navigate to an address or search points of interest– places like hotels, restaurants, shopping, and tourist attractions. The n?vi 350 automatically calculates the fastest route and provides voice-prompted turn-by-turn directions along the way. The unit also audibly announces the name of upcoming streets– letting you keep your eyes on the road while navigating through busy traffic and tricky roadways. And if you stray off course, the n?vi 350 automatically calculates the quickest way to get back on track.

Also annoying is the warning screen that pops up every time you turn the unit on, whether or not you’re moving. No other type of electronic device warns you not to use it while you’re driving; it’s just stupid, clumsy blather.

Another poor design aspect is the fact that when you lock the interface to avoid accidental touches, the Nuvi displays a static message that it’s locked–even when you are navigating. Instead, it should just display the navigation or audio controls with the screen darkened to save battery life. There are plenty of times that I would be happy to use the thing in darkened and locked mode but the display is useless. Last, the Nuvi should still work while it’s charging or connected by USB like a cell phone does, but instead it displays a static image.

Great GPS; very User-friendly; good battery life5
Purchased this GPS about two months ago and have taken it on several trips. It picks up satellite signal much better than my previous GPS. It is very easy to use and self explanatory. The battery life seems to be very adequate. I have already found a few businesses that no longer exist that are listed. It would be nice if you had a free update for one year. This GPS is small enough to carry in your pocket if needed.

Customer Reviews c340 Garmin GPS

TOM TOM Affordable GPS4
I only rated it 4 stars because it doesn’t announce the street names. They are printed on the screen as you pass them however. You will need to update this unit if you buy it new. There are a few streets here in Houston that deviate a little from the map, but you can make corrections as you go. I wanted a unit that was user friendly (it didn’t take a geek to use it)and was affordable. There are better units out there with all the bells and whistles, but be prepared to pay for them. This one is fantastic in bang for the buck and cheaper than most and my directionally challenged family members can work it with no problem at all. Features like widescreen, etc might be nice for some, but for me I just wanted to be reminded when to turn and directed to my selected location at under $175 it has no equal; if price is $199 or more there are some other units to consider.

Used Everyday for Business5
I bought this item for use in my business having liked it while working part time for another company.Taking customer calls on the go and then navigating to there residence has not been a problem.It very rarely cannot find an address.And when it can’t I assume its due to a neede down load map yearly update.I would highly recommend the Tom Tom One to any one needing a GPS for Business or pleasure.

TomTom5
We just finished a 2,000 trip and Tom Tom was really helpful. Don’t leave home without one!

Amazon.com Product Description — January 8, 2008
Garmin’s n?vi 700 series brings two exciting new features — multi-destination routing and, “Where am I?/Where’s my car?” — to its popular pocket-sized GPS navigator lineup. As with all n?vis, you get Garmin reliability, the fast satellite lock of an integrated high-sensitivity receiver, a slim, pocket-sized design with a gorgeous display, an easy, intuitive interface, and detailed NAVTEQ maps for the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico with more than 6 million name-searchable points of interest. All of the 700-series navigators also feature a rich array of features including spoken directions in real street names, MP3 player and photo viewer, and an FM transmitter that will play voice prompts, MP3s, audio books, and more, directly through your vehicle’s stereo system. The n?vi 760 and 770 add integrated traffic receivers and Bluetooth capability for hands-free calling. The n?vi 770 adds maps for Europe. The n?vi 780 adds enhanced MSN direct content capability..

Which n?vi is Best for You?: Click here to see a quick, simple comparison of features for all Garmin nuvi GPS navigators

New Features — Where Am I? Where’s My Car?
The n?vi 700 series is the first to answer two common questions: “Where am I?” and “Where’s my car?”

At any time, with a single tap of the screen, drivers can display their exact latitude and longitude coordinates, the nearest address and intersection, and the closest hospitals, police stations and gas stations. And to help drivers find their car in an unfamiliar spot or vast parking lot, all n?vi 700s automatically mark the position in which they were last removed from the mount.

New Features — Multi-Destination Routing
This lets you enter several spots into the device (day care – supermarket-cleaners – office – day care, for example) and it will plot the fastest route. And once you’ve found the best router, the “Route Planning” feature lets you save up to 10 different routes, Garmin touts the feature for providing, “the most efficient route for errands, deliveries and sales calls.” The feature also makes this an instant essential accessory for anyone who shops garage sales (you know what we’re talking about).

A trip log provides an electronic bread crumb trail of up to 10,000 points, so you can see where you’ve been on the map.

See Better, See More
The super-bright, 4.3-inch (diagonal) touchscreen display gives is anti-glare for ease of viewing during the day and automatically changes its color profile for easy viewing at night or in dim light. It offers 2d or 3D perspective views.

The widescreen format gives you 70% more actual screen area than a 3.5-inch screen. Primarily this translates into a better view of the area through which you are driving. This is especially useful in showing you what parks, restaurants, ATM, gas stations, etc. are nearby, or in letting you know whether a detour is a good idea. Also, the device itself is larger, meaning controls on the screen are more widely spaced and somewhat easier to push.

First Rate Map Data
All n?vi 700s come preloaded with highly detailed City Navigator NT road maps for the entire United States, Canada, and Puerto Rico. This map database features nearly six million points of interest (POIs), including hotels, restaurants, gas stations, ATMs, and attractions. Garmin gets its map data from NAVTEQ, a world leader in premium-quality mapping.

Important note about map updates: Due to our high volume of sales, almost every Garmin portable GPS navigator sold by Amazon.com will come with the most recent map version. If you ever do need a map update, you can purchase one from Amazon.com at our Garmin Store.

Hands-Free Calling
In more and more places, it is becoming illegal to use cell phones while driving without a hands-free kit. WIth Bluetooth capability, microphone and speaker, you can match your n?vi to any bluetooth-capable phone to make hands-free mobile phone calls. Simply dial the phone number with the n?vi’s touch screen keypad to make a call on a compatible phone. To answer an incoming call, just tap the screen and speak into the built-in microphone. Making and taking calls on the road has never been easier, or safer. In addition, Garmin makes it a breeze to look-up and dial numbers from your personalized phone book or even tap into your cell phone’s call history log.

Integrated FM Traffic Receiver

Steer clear of traffic with an integrated FM traffic receiver designed to receive alerts from TMC Clear Channel about traffic tie-ups and road construction that might lie ahead on your route. All you have to do is simply touch the screen to view traffic details and you’ll be ready to detour around any problem area. And if you end up missing a turn, or you’re forced into a detour that is not relayed through the traffic receiver, the n?vi’s sophisticated automatic routing will get you back on track in no time.
In most areas, TMC Clear Channel traffic broadcasts are continuous — there’s no waiting for scheduled traffic news updates or random alerts. Because traffic broadcasts are received via a “silent” FM data channel, you can still listen to music or news programming on your car radio without interference from incoming FM traffic data transmissions.

A 3-month subscription to TMC Clear Channel’s Total Traffic Network is included with purchase of this device. For more information on subscription fees, coverage in individual cities, and traffic data networks in the United Kingdom and Europe, check the Garmin website.


Garmin Lock

Garmin’s patent pending theft prevention system that disables the unit from performing any functions until the user types in a specific 4-digit PIN or takes the unit to a predetermined secure location

Easy To Use Interface
Garmin’s interface is a key to their success and one of the things that makes their devices such a pleasure to use. Simple controls and sub-screens make it easy to enter or search for destinations and get data about your trip.

Amazon.com Product Description
What if one device could help you navigate anywhere in the U.S. and Canada, while offering travel tips, storing your favorite tunes and photos, providing translation assistance, and more? That device is here, and it’s not much bigger than a deck of cards. The Garmin n?vi 350 is set to revolutionize what we expect from a GPS navigation device, or from any device for that matter.

Which n?vi is Best for You?: Click here to see a quick, simple comparison of features for all Garmin nuvi GPS navigators

garmin gps low pricesDesign Garmin GPS
With a total weight of 5.1 ounces and slim measurements of 3.87 x 2.91 x 0.87 inches (WxHxD), the n?vi 350 is just right for the pocket or purse. A bright, 64,000-color display dominates the front of the device and a resolution of 320 x 240 pixels means that there’s plenty of room for displaying map data and other elements of the device’s interface. An SD memory card slot is provided for expansion software, such as a points of interest database, media files and electronic guides (see below). The flip-up antenna includes an MCX-type connector for connecting the unit to an external GPS antenna. Meanwhile, a powerful built-in speaker resides on the back of device. A built-in lithium ion battery will give you for to eight hours of battery life, depending on use. In addition to an AC charger, the unit also ships with a 12-volt power adapter for vehicle charging, as well as a windshield suction cup mount.

Fortunately, Garmin has made it easy to interface with the n?vi 350’s 700 megabytes of onboard memory, thanks to “plug-and-play” USB mass storage support. Just plug the device into your computer’s USB port and you’ve got instantaneous access to all the audio books, music, photos, supplemental maps and other data on the n?vi 350’s internal and SD card memory.

Navigation
The n?vi 350 is first and foremost a personal GPS device. Wherever you go — in your car or on foot– the device offers extremely accurate position data, thanks to a high-sensitivity integrated GPS receiver by SiRF and WAAS-enabled, 12-satellite reception. Combined with detailed maps of the U.S., Canada and Puerto Rico the n?vi 350 provides automatic routing, turn-by-turn voice directions, and touchscreen control– making it easy to find your way anywhere. Plus, the unique “text-to-speech” feature calls out turns by street name, and you can choose from either 2D or 3D mapping perspectives when you’re viewing your route on the display. Additionally, the n?vi 350 is compatible with Garmin’s GTM 10 FM TMC traffic receiver*, which allows users to avoid traffic tie-ups by simply pushing a button that will calculate a new route.

As mentioned, the n?vi 350 comes packed with mapping data for North America, but you can can also load up your custom points of interest. Set up proximity alerts for school zones, safety cameras, and more using Garmin’s free POI (points of interest) loader program (available from garmin.com).

Important note about map updates: Due to our high volume of sales, almost every Garmin portable GPS navigator sold by Amazon.com will come with the most recent map version. If you ever do need a map update, you can purchase one from Amazon.com at our Garmin Store.

Tools for the Journey
Navigation is just part of the journey, and the n?vi 350 is one of the first devices to recognize that. The built-in “Travel Kit” offers an MP3 player, an audio book player from Audible.com, a jpeg-format picture viewer, a world travel clock with time zones, a currency converter, a measurement converter, and a calculator.

In addition to the included travel tools, additional software add-ons are available, such as the Garmin Language Guide, with data provided by Oxford University Press. This software suite contains a multilingual word bank, phrase bank, and five bilingual dictionaries. The multilingual word bank and phrase bank supports nine languages and dialects, including American English, British English, French, German, Italian, Brazilian Portuguese, European Portuguese, European Spanish, and Latin American Spanish. Now you can look up and translate more than 17,000 words or 20,000 phrases per language — right in the palm of your hand. Through the unit’s text-to-speech interface, users can get a spoken pronunciation of each entry in the word bank, along with gender and part of speech information.

Another useful add-on software package, the Garmin Travel Guide, is loaded with information provided by Marco Polo. These guides put in-depth travel information such as reviews and recommendations for restaurants, tourist attractions, and more at your fingertips. The software allows you to navigate to an address or search points of interest– places like hotels, restaurants, shopping, and tourist attractions. The n?vi 350 automatically calculates the fastest route and provides voice-prompted turn-by-turn directions along the way. The unit also audibly announces the name of upcoming streets– letting you keep your eyes on the road while navigating through busy traffic and tricky roadways. And if you stray off course, the n?vi 350 automatically calculates the quickest way to get back on track.

Customer Reviews Garmin n?vi 650

Worth it5
I love this device, very user friendly and i can’t find any negative about it. Great price when I bought it and two thumbs up!

Very good but not great4
I bought the 650 for my mother after owning the 660 for about a year. I found I didn’t use the Bluetooth or FM transmitter features at all and figured she wouldn’t either. I find the navigation to be very good but less accurate than the Magellan NeverLost systems I’ve used in rental cars. The Nuvi frequently wants to route me off the highway and thru towns that I know will be much slower. Also, it doesn’t take into account traffic lights and stop signs, so you can’t trust the estimated arrival time it displays.

I use it in the car and on planes to listen to podcasts I’ve downloaded to it, so the dual use is especially wonderful. I found the photo viewer quite poor in that it doesn’t reliably display the pictures full-screen. Also annoying is the warning screen that pops up every time you turn the unit on, whether or not you’re moving. No other type of electronic device warns you not to use it while you’re driving; it’s just stupid, clumsy blather.

Another poor design aspect is the fact that when you lock the interface to avoid accidental touches, the Nuvi displays a static message that it’s locked–even when you are navigating. Instead, it should just display the navigation or audio controls with the screen darkened to save battery life. There are plenty of times that I would be happy to use the thing in darkened and locked mode but the display is useless. Last, the Nuvi should still work while it’s charging or connected by USB like a cell phone does, but instead it displays a static image.

Great GPS; very User-friendly; good battery life5
Purchased this GPS about two months ago and have taken it on several trips. It picks up satellite signal much better than my previous GPS. It is very easy to use and self explanatory. The battery life seems to be very adequate. I have already found a few businesses that no longer exist that are listed. It would be nice if you had a free update for one year. This GPS is small enough to carry in your pocket if needed.

Customer Reviews c340 Garmin GPS

TOM TOM Affordable GPS4
I only rated it 4 stars because it doesn’t announce the street names. They are printed on the screen as you pass them however. You will need to update this unit if you buy it new. There are a few streets here in Houston that deviate a little from the map, but you can make corrections as you go. I wanted a unit that was user friendly (it didn’t take a geek to use it)and was affordable. There are better units out there with all the bells and whistles, but be prepared to pay for them. This one is fantastic in bang for the buck and cheaper than most and my directionally challenged family members can work it with no problem at all. Features like widescreen, etc might be nice for some, but for me I just wanted to be reminded when to turn and directed to my selected location at under $175 it has no equal; if price is $199 or more there are some other units to consider.

Used Everyday for Business5
I bought this item for use in my business having liked it while working part time for another company.Taking customer calls on the go and then navigating to there residence has not been a problem.It very rarely cannot find an address.And when it can’t I assume its due to a neede down load map yearly update.I would highly recommend the Tom Tom One to any one needing a GPS for Business or pleasure.

We just finished a 2,000 trip and Tom Tom was really helpful. Don’t leave home without one!

Amazon.com Product Description — January 8, 2008
Garmin’s n?vi 700 series brings two exciting new features — multi-destination routing and, “Where am I?/Where’s my car?” — to its popular pocket-sized GPS navigator lineup. As with all n?vis, you get Garmin reliability, the fast satellite lock of an integrated high-sensitivity receiver, a slim, pocket-sized design with a gorgeous display, an easy, intuitive interface, and detailed NAVTEQ maps for the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico with more than 6 million name-searchable points of interest. All of the 700-series navigators also feature a rich array of features including spoken directions in real street names, MP3 player and photo viewer, and an FM transmitter that will play voice prompts, MP3s, audio books, and more, directly through your vehicle’s stereo system. The n?vi 760 and 770 add integrated traffic receivers and Bluetooth capability for hands-free calling. The n?vi 770 adds maps for Europe. The n?vi 780 adds enhanced MSN direct content capability..

Which n?vi is Best for You?: Click here to see a quick, simple comparison of features for all Garmin nuvi GPS navigators

New Features — Where Am I? Where’s My Car?
The n?vi 700 series is the first to answer two common questions: “Where am I?” and “Where’s my car?”

At any time, with a single tap of the screen, drivers can display their exact latitude and longitude coordinates, the nearest address and intersection, and the closest hospitals, police stations and gas stations. And to help drivers find their car in an unfamiliar spot or vast parking lot, all n?vi 700s automatically mark the position in which they were last removed from the mount.

New Features — Multi-Destination Routing
This lets you enter several spots into the device (day care – supermarket-cleaners – office – day care, for example) and it will plot the fastest route. And once you’ve found the best router, the “Route Planning” feature lets you save up to 10 different routes, Garmin touts the feature for providing, “the most efficient route for errands, deliveries and sales calls.” The feature also makes this an instant essential accessory for anyone who shops garage sales (you know what we’re talking about).

A trip log provides an electronic bread crumb trail of up to 10,000 points, so you can see where you’ve been on the map.

See Better, See More
The super-bright, 4.3-inch (diagonal) touchscreen display gives is anti-glare for ease of viewing during the day and automatically changes its color profile for easy viewing at night or in dim light. It offers 2d or 3D perspective views.

The widescreen format gives you 70% more actual screen area than a 3.5-inch screen. Primarily this translates into a better view of the area through which you are driving. This is especially useful in showing you what parks, restaurants, ATM, gas stations, etc. are nearby, or in letting you know whether a detour is a good idea. Also, the device itself is larger, meaning controls on the screen are more widely spaced and somewhat easier to push.

First Rate Map Data
All n?vi 700s come preloaded with highly detailed City Navigator NT road maps for the entire United States, Canada, and Puerto Rico. This map database features nearly six million points of interest (POIs), including hotels, restaurants, gas stations, ATMs, and attractions. Garmin gets its map data from NAVTEQ, a world leader in premium-quality mapping.

Important note about map updates: Due to our high volume of sales, almost every Garmin portable GPS navigator sold by Amazon.com will come with the most recent map version. If you ever do need a map update, you can purchase one from Amazon.com at our Garmin Store.

Hands-Free Calling
In more and more places, it is becoming illegal to use cell phones while driving without a hands-free kit. WIth Bluetooth capability, microphone and speaker, you can match your n?vi to any bluetooth-capable phone to make hands-free mobile phone calls. Simply dial the phone number with the n?vi’s touch screen keypad to make a call on a compatible phone. To answer an incoming call, just tap the screen and speak into the built-in microphone. Making and taking calls on the road has never been easier, or safer. In addition, Garmin makes it a breeze to look-up and dial numbers from your personalized phone book or even tap into your cell phone’s call history log.

Integrated FM Traffic Receiver

Steer clear of traffic with an integrated FM traffic receiver designed to receive alerts from TMC Clear Channel about traffic tie-ups and road construction that might lie ahead on your route. All you have to do is simply touch the screen to view traffic details and you’ll be ready to detour around any problem area. And if you end up missing a turn, or you’re forced into a detour that is not relayed through the traffic receiver, the n?vi’s sophisticated automatic routing will get you back on track in no time.
In most areas, TMC Clear Channel traffic broadcasts are continuous — there’s no waiting for scheduled traffic news updates or random alerts. Because traffic broadcasts are received via a “silent” FM data channel, you can still listen to music or news programming on your car radio without interference from incoming FM traffic data transmissions.A 3-month subscription to TMC Clear Channel’s Total Traffic Network is included with purchase of this device. For more information on subscription fees, coverage in individual cities, and traffic data networks in the United Kingdom and Europe, check the Garmin website.


Garmin Lock

Garmin’s patent pending theft prevention system that disables the unit from performing any functions until the user types in a specific 4-digit PIN or takes the unit to a predetermined secure location

Easy To Use Interface
Garmin’s interface is a key to their success and one of the things that makes their devices such a pleasure to use. Simple controls and sub-screens make it easy to enter or search for destinations and get data about your trip.

Amazon.com Product Description
What if one device could help you navigate anywhere in the U.S. and Canada, while offering travel tips, storing your favorite tunes and photos, providing translation assistance, and more? That device is here, and it’s not much bigger than a deck of cards. The Garmin n?vi 350 is set to revolutionize what we expect from a GPS navigation device, or from any device for that matter.

Which n?vi is Best for You?: Click here to see a quick, simple comparison of features for all Garmin nuvi GPS navigators

garmin gps low pricesDesign Garmin GPS
With a total weight of 5.1 ounces and slim measurements of 3.87 x 2.91 x 0.87 inches (WxHxD), the n?vi 350 is just right for the pocket or purse. A bright, 64,000-color display dominates the front of the device and a resolution of 320 x 240 pixels means that there’s plenty of room for displaying map data and other elements of the device’s interface. An SD memory card slot is provided for expansion software, such as a points of interest database, media files and electronic guides (see below). The flip-up antenna includes an MCX-type connector for connecting the unit to an external GPS antenna. Meanwhile, a powerful built-in speaker resides on the back of device. A built-in lithium ion battery will give you for to eight hours of battery life, depending on use. In addition to an AC charger, the unit also ships with a 12-volt power adapter for vehicle charging, as well as a windshield suction cup mount.

Fortunately, Garmin has made it easy to interface with the n?vi 350’s 700 megabytes of onboard memory, thanks to “plug-and-play” USB mass storage support. Just plug the device into your computer’s USB port and you’ve got instantaneous access to all the audio books, music, photos, supplemental maps and other data on the n?vi 350’s internal and SD card memory.

Navigation
The n?vi 350 is first and foremost a personal GPS device. Wherever you go — in your car or on foot– the device offers extremely accurate position data, thanks to a high-sensitivity integrated GPS receiver by SiRF and WAAS-enabled, 12-satellite reception. Combined with detailed maps of the U.S., Canada and Puerto Rico the n?vi 350 provides automatic routing, turn-by-turn voice directions, and touchscreen control– making it easy to find your way anywhere. Plus, the unique “text-to-speech” feature calls out turns by street name, and you can choose from either 2D or 3D mapping perspectives when you’re viewing your route on the display. Additionally, the n?vi 350 is compatible with Garmin’s GTM 10 FM TMC traffic receiver*, which allows users to avoid traffic tie-ups by simply pushing a button that will calculate a new route.

As mentioned, the n?vi 350 comes packed with mapping data for North America, but you can can also load up your custom points of interest. Set up proximity alerts for school zones, safety cameras, and more using Garmin’s free POI (points of interest) loader program (available from garmin.com).

Important note about map updates: Due to our high volume of sales, almost every Garmin portable GPS navigator sold by Amazon.com will come with the most recent map version. If you ever do need a map update, you can purchase one from Amazon.com at our Garmin Store.

Tools for the Journey
Navigation is just part of the journey, and the n?vi 350 is one of the first devices to recognize that. The built-in “Travel Kit” offers an MP3 player, an audio book player from Audible.com, a jpeg-format picture viewer, a world travel clock with time zones, a currency converter, a measurement converter, and a calculator.

In addition to the included travel tools, additional software add-ons are available, such as the Garmin Language Guide, with data provided by Oxford University Press. This software suite contains a multilingual word bank, phrase bank, and five bilingual dictionaries. The multilingual word bank and phrase bank supports nine languages and dialects, including American English, British English, French, German, Italian, Brazilian Portuguese, European Portuguese, European Spanish, and Latin American Spanish. Now you can look up and translate more than 17,000 words or 20,000 phrases per language — right in the palm of your hand. Through the unit’s text-to-speech interface, users can get a spoken pronunciation of each entry in the word bank, along with gender and part of speech information.

Another useful add-on software package, the Garmin Travel Guide, is loaded with information provided by Marco Polo. These guides put in-depth travel information such as reviews and recommendations for restaurants, tourist attractions, and more at your fingertips. The software allows you to navigate to an address or search points of interest– places like hotels, restaurants, shopping, and tourist attractions. The n?vi 350 automatically calculates the fastest route and provides voice-prompted turn-by-turn directions along the way. The unit also audibly announces the name of upcoming streets– letting you keep your eyes on the road while navigating through busy traffic and tricky roadways. And if you stray off course, the n?vi 350 automatically calculates the quickest way to get back on track.

Customer Reviews Garmin nüvi 650

Worth it5
I love this device, very user friendly and i can’t find any negative about it. Great price when I bought it and two thumbs up!

Very good but not great4
I bought the 650 for my mother after owning the 660 for about a year. I found I didn’t use the Bluetooth or FM transmitter features at all and figured she wouldn’t either. I find the navigation to be very good but less accurate than the Magellan NeverLost systems I’ve used in rental cars. The Nuvi frequently wants to route me off the highway and thru towns that I know will be much slower. Also, it doesn’t take into account traffic lights and stop signs, so you can’t trust the estimated arrival time it displays.

I use it in the car and on planes to listen to podcasts I’ve downloaded to it, so the dual use is especially wonderful. I found the photo viewer quite poor in that it doesn’t reliably display the pictures full-screen. Also annoying is the warning screen that pops up every time you turn the unit on, whether or not you’re moving. No other type of electronic device warns you not to use it while you’re driving; it’s just stupid, clumsy blather.

Another poor design aspect is the fact that when you lock the interface to avoid accidental touches, the Nuvi displays a static message that it’s locked–even when you are navigating. Instead, it should just display the navigation or audio controls with the screen darkened to save battery life. There are plenty of times that I would be happy to use the thing in darkened and locked mode but the display is useless. Last, the Nuvi should still work while it’s charging or connected by USB like a cell phone does, but instead it displays a static image.

Great GPS; very User-friendly; good battery life5
Purchased this GPS about two months ago and have taken it on several trips. It picks up satellite signal much better than my previous GPS. It is very easy to use and self explanatory. The battery life seems to be very adequate. I have already found a few businesses that no longer exist that are listed. It would be nice if you had a free update for one year. This GPS is small enough to carry in your pocket if needed.
