Locates satelites very quickly
Good battery life
Good at finding places
Easy to use
Voice quality is average.
I bought a Garmin Nuvi 250 for my second car, and I think this is one of the best sat navs out, garmin are a quality make and I have tried a couple now [on lone]. Much better than my RAC 200, and some big name brands I have used. The Nuvi locates satelities very fast, even in the middle of my house and is very accurate to. Good battery life 3+ hours. Good routing, never had any trouble getting places or finding them in the search. Unit is well built. Is easy to use, and has a nice clear screen.
Only problem I feel is the voice quality is very average.
A great unit better than my RAC 200 which has done me no wrong, but the garmin units are better than cheaper not so well known brands. I also feel Garmin make a better product than the other big brands [TomTom, Navman]. I honestly feel I will be only buying Garmin sat navs from now on.
