"The Garmin Nuvi 260 offers drivers and travelers a more budget-friendly version of the popular portable navigation devices and includes text-to-speech, but we think the price is still slightly high for what you get."

I love this! used it to get around san fransico.
I love it and definetly recommend it! I decided to buy it
because of my poor maping skills and i love to
travel so its hard for me to get around with no knowledge of cities.
but the garmin nuvi makes it easy for me to travel to places i want
to go. and see the great landmarks that the city has to offer,
and with points of intrest i can easily find anything that i want to do.
gas stations, malls, etc..
i love this is priceless to me. and it is soooo easy and compact to
use my mother can even use it. It automatically recalculate in case of a wrong turn. love it and recommend!
This is a cost-effective GPS that speaks road names, not just turns.
Its accurate and works as great as other Garmin products that are just slightly more expensive, such as, Street pilot C580. Well, it doesn't hate the bluetooth and some other excessive features, but I personally never needs those.
However, once in a while, it has problem with "losing satellite" and it just stops at where it was (my GPS is always placed on my front wind shield so it's certainly exposed while I'm driving). It sometimes goes on for a while before it comes back up. The good thing is it doesn't happen that often. I'm sure it does happen to other GPS as well.
Overall, this it's great!! I love it
The gps system works great,easy to use and update, lots of cool little features, looks brand new, and i got it at a great price! Was better than i expected. Thanks best buy outlet!
I bought the Garmin nüvi 260 Automotive GPS Receiver three weeks ago and was immediately impressed with the number of features available on this GPS Receiver . The GPS size is perfect for carrying in a pocket and the battery has a pretty good lifespan of roughly 4 hours. Overall, I'd recommend the GPS if you're on a budget
NOT BAD BUT I WISH IT HAD BLUETOOTH. IT WORKS GREAT AND I HAVE HAD ONE OF CHEVY'S GPS SYSTEMS IN MY CAR AND I HAVE REALLY THOUGHT ABOUT PUCHING IT JUST TO MAKE IT WORK CORRECTLY. I KNOW IT WONT HELP BUT I HAVE THOUGHT ABOUT IT. THE 260 WORKS GREAT AND YOU CAN DOWNLOAD YOUR UPDATES FOR FREE GREAT. I THOUGHT NOT LIKE THE OTHER ONE I HAVE IT COST YOU $200 EVERY YEAR SO NOT ANY MORE FROM THE OTHER GUY. I GIVE GARMIN 5 OUT OF 5 STARS
