Good item but greedy Garmin did not give life time map down load
The Garmin Nuvi 650 cost me over $400, it has worked well but For the amount of money you have to pay, it should have life time map down load.

Garmin nuvi 650 GPS
This is my second purchase of the Garmin 650. We wanted another in our second vehicle. I would highly recommend purchasing it if you can still get this model. It is no longer being made there are reconditioned ones readily available.
Pros: easy to use, fast loading, routing is accurate, numerous POI's (useful to get phone numbers on the road), tells you what road you are on and what road is coming up (very helpful if you are lost), take it on trips and enter your hotel address into favorites and you can forget about getting lost -- no map reading, --whenever you are ready to go back to the hotel go to favorites and get step by step instructions!
Cons: doesn't allow entering of multiple routing addresses for my weekly garage sale routing -- but that is a really minor issue
I have had other vehicle installed GPS units. The first GPS unit came in the vehicle we purchased and I looked at it as something "fun" to have. GPS units are more than fun to me now -- they are very useful and now required. I purchased our first Garmin 650 for our second car and so we had access in that vehicle and we could take it on vacation when we had a rental vehicle. Wow what a difference the Garmin 650 is from the vehicle GPS! The Garmin 650 is more accurate and easier to use than any of the vehicle units I have/had. The wide screen makes if very easy to see as you are driving and navigating.
I liked the Garmin 650 GS so much that we purchased the second unit for a vehicle that already has GPS installed because the Garmin 650 is far superior to the vehicle unit! I highly recommend that you buy this model, you won't be disappointed!Read full review

Garmin nuvi650 GPS
We've had our GPS for about a month and we love it! It was ready to go right out of the box although we did get a free upgrade to 2009 maps so we downloaded those. We recently got back from vacation and it was wonderful. It was totally accurate the entire time, not a single misdirection. In fact it said we would arrive home at 6:34 and we pulled in our driveway at exactly 6:34. The screen size is what first drew us to this model as well as the price. You'll want to pick a GPS that speaks the street names. This was especially helpful. The prompts are well enough in advance to give you time to change lanes if necessary. The screen is bright enough to be seen in bright sunlight, no shadows, no glare. Also, the driver as well as the passenger have perfect view of the screen. The touch screen is very easy to use, just sensitive enough. We did a lot of research before we made our purchase and the Garmin was highly rated. We are not dissappointed. Very easy to use, very accurate, easy to navigate through the screens of instructions....If you take a wrong turn it recalculates quickly and you are back on track. I highly recommened the Garmin.Read full review

I bought the nuvi 650 for a vacation in Orlando Florida,but I can't use it. The nuvi 650 didn't show me the road when I enter and address,it said Map block and a lot of things more. In Orlando I bring it to a Electronic Store and they said I have to download the Map and is more Expensive than if you bought another model with the Map included. Now I don't know what to do with this Garmin nuvi 650
