Garmin nuvi 250W Portable GPS navigation w/ Wide 4.3" Color Display

Condition: Brand new, USA Warranty
the nuvi 250W delivers directions on the go, wherever life takes you, nuvi 250W 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, e.t.c.

Garmin International has announced that nuMaps Guarantee is now available. This program allows a customer who purchases a new nuvi or zumo GPS device to update the unit map free of charge if both of the following conditions exist:

1. The customer registers the new unit here within 60 days of the unit's first use.
2. A newer map becomes available within 60 days after the unit has been activated.

With its easy-to-use touchscreen, preloaded maps of North America or Europe and widescreen display, the affordable nuvi 250W delivers directions on the go - wherever life takes you. For an additional cost savings, check out nuvi 200W which offers less map coverage at a lower price.

With nuvi 250W's widescreen display, you'll always get the big picture. View map detail, driving directions, photos and more in bright, brilliant color. Its sunlight-readable, antiglare, landscape, 4.3-inch display with white backlight is easy to read - from any direction.

Navigate with Ease
nuvi 250W 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. Simply touch the color screen to enter a destination, and nuvi takes you there with 2D or 3D maps and turn-by-turn voice directions. In addition, nuvi 250W 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.

Take It With You

Like the rest of the nuvi 200-series, nuvi 250W 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.
