Product Details
Garmin nuvi 260 GPS with Free Dash Mount and Free Shipping
Arrive on time and in style when you bring the ultra-cool nüvi 260 GPS navigator along for the ride. The nüvi 260 is attractively priced and simple to use. Plus, this sleek navigator comes with turn-by-turn voice directions that announce the name of streets as you navigate, so you can keep your eyes on the road. With nüvi 260, you're just a few screen taps away from anywhere.

nüvi 260 comes ready to go right out of the box with preloaded City Navigator NT street maps, including a hefty points of interest (POIs) database with hotels, restaurants, fuel, ATMs and more. It even announces the name of exits and streets so you never have to take your eyes off the road. 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, 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.

Like the rest of the nüvi 200-series, nüvi 260 sports a sleek, slim design and fits comfortably in your pocket or purse. Its rechargeable lithium-ion battery makes it convenient for navigation by car or foot. But navigation is just the beginning. nüvi 260 includes many travel tools including JPEG picture viewer, world travel clock with time zones, currency converter, measurement converter, calculator and more. It also comes with Garmin Lock, an anti-theft feature, and is compatible with the free Garmin Garage where you can download custom vehicles that show your location on the map. Enhance your travel experience with optional plug-in SD cards such as Garmin Travel Guides for detailed data on attractions.

My wife and I recently drove from Ann Arbor, MI to the Washington D.C. area. We purchased the Garmin nuvi 260 a few weeks prior specifically for the trip. It was a great travel guide, as we used it to locate hotels in order to call in advance and price shop. Not only was it a good locater, but also saved us some money! There were a few construction detours along the way, but we never worried because of the quick recalculation of the route. Our only complaint is that once we got into Washington D.C., "Louise", the name we gave to the voice of the Garmin, seemed to be a bit confused. It is a rather congested city with road criss-crossing in every direction, and a few times we were instructed to turn and when we did, "Louise" began recalculating as if we had made a wrong turn. She got us close to our destination nonetheless, and we would have never made it that far if it weren't for her. All in all a great product and we will not be taking road trips without our travel companion "Louise".

              I purchased this for myself as everyone else in our family has one. However, after I received mine everyone else liked it so much they were constantly borrowing it from me. Therefore, I purchased another, thinking that I would have it for myself, but now they are borrowing it too. This shows me that it is really user friendly.

                We used it on our recent trip to the Creation Museum in Petersburg, KY and then on to Indianapolis to our hotel, restaurants, Children's Museum, and Indy Zoo. It found all those places and took us right to them. The only thing we noticed that it did wrong was that it said our destination was on the right or left when it was on the opposite side.

                  This product is so easy to use and follow. We have wanted to buy a GPS for a long time and when Meijer has a recent sale we deceided now was the best time. Its been so useful that we now wish we has purchased one years ago. Its really great and we would recommend one for everyone and anyone who gets lost as we do when out of town
