The Garmin Nuvi 250W has been one of the more popular GPS systems the past few years, but it's starting to show its age. GPS magazine was impressed with several aspects of the 250W, including its 4.3-inch widescreen display. However, that review is 3 years old. But users are still snapping up the Nuvi 250W. At Amazon, users give the 250W an average 4 star rating out of 5. Users praise the 250W for being easy to use due to its simple interface. Some Amazon users complain that the device can take a while to warm up and lock onto a signal, however.
The Nuvi 250W has a 4.3-inch widescreen display, which at the time it first appeared was quite an impressive feature. The 250W is a WAAS-enabled device with about 6 million points of interest, and comes preloaded with maps of the U.S. and Canada. It also includes an SD memory card slot.
The Garmin Nuvi 250W was an excellent GPS for a long time, but it's pricier than many other newer models (including models from Garmin) with more and better features. It's time to upgrade.
