Garmin has added a great addition to its 200 series gps navigation devices with the garmin nÃ¼vi 260W 4.3-inch widescreen portable GPS navigator device.
The nuvi 260w features the new ultra slim design and comes pre-loaded with maps for the continental united states, hawaii, puerto rico, AK and Canada.
If you where frustrated in the past with the small screen, then you will love the 4.3 inch backlit widescreen. This screen offers 70% more actual screen area than the 3.5 inch screen which will give you a better view of the area you are driving through. This is very helpful because it can now show you parks, restaurants, gas stations and many other places that are nearby and it can also let you know if taking that detour is a good idea. One last thing about the 4.3 inch widescreen, is that the controls on the screen are spaced out more, which makes it easier to push the buttons. Especially when your pushing the buttons and trying to drive at the same time.
This nuvi 260w also has a great feature called text to speech. With this technology the nuvi gps device automatically calls out the street names, which allows the driver to pay attention to the road instead of the gps device when driving. A great feature that will get you to your destination quickly and safely.
If you simply want to get from point A to point B in a reliable and efficient manor then the garmin 260w is the gps device to look at. The nÃ¼vi 260W gives consumers the most sought-after navigation features, while eliminating many of the premium add-ons. All nuvi gps devices come with garmin reliability and fast satellite lock.
