I've got the similar Nuvi 300, and recommend it...especially at this price :thumbsup:

The new v11 2009 Garmin maps are due out in the next few weeks, if you get one of these units and its still using the v10 maps you should be entitled to a free upgrade to the V11 maps. Hold onto your receipts if you are buying one of these in case they are needed later.
Some european units are already using the V11 maps on new Nuvis or ones that have been returned to Garmin for repair.
Nuvis are great units, worth paying a little extra for the accurate routing. HOT!

Excellent unit indeed. And a good price too. Other options are the 4.3" widescreen model (70% bigger screen - model 250W) available for £88 from tesco (£99.97 minus £9 voucher & £2.55 quidco, free del and clubcard points - what i bought yesterday to replace my i3) or i believe £70 (standard 250) instore at CPW.

I got one of these after it was on here last month. Absolutely no problems with it- very simple to use, and it comes with a Spitfire as your vehicle... ;)

The Nuvi 300 is £69.99 at amazon:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Garmin-Nuvi-300-UK-Mapping/dp/B000X3ZRSY/ref=acc_glance__ai_-2_1_tit

It says its 'newly overhauled'. Is this another word for refurbished?

Which one of these two models is the higher spec one?

if that is the case, then the Nuvi 300 is a bargain at that price. Does anyone know if the Garmins keep a history list of your previous locations? I hate having to select everything from the menu from scratch each time i want to use it. Its much easier on the tom toms where it saves your last selection on the menus, so things like previous city, postcode etc are already saved.

Not used the 300, but have used the i3, 200, 250 and 255. All of them saved your last maybe 20 under "recently found". Else you can store them in Favourites.

The 300 is an older model, 2006 i think, but is actually a higher spec model. Refurbed by Garmin means it will have the latest maps on, so a right bargain.

Note the following:

300 DOESNT have EU mapping (if it is useful or not to you?)
300 Has a slightly smaller screen
300 Doesnt have speed camera warning

300 DOES speak street names (2xx Dont)

Great price but the carfone warehouse prices are even cheaper still heat added for find

No need to repeat yourself. Care to share which website and post the link here for us all to see?
#17
Bear in mind this is a fairly old model - its been superceeded twice - the 255 replaced this and now the 260 replaces the 255.
#18
ok, I will give you the link, I dont mind sharing it, but I got accused of promoting my own site, and I dont have one.

it's powerstore.biz
#19
Yeah well that site looks well dodgy!

out of stock! plus site looks bit dodgy not one ive heard of, are they second hand? stolen? or something, so id pay a bit extra and buy it from amazon- for peace of mind- unless you've bought from them before, but even so says out of stock.
#21
Nver bought, was going to, but now you have worried me. Do you think it is stolen or something ?

They say opening sale, which explains not hearing about them. Spose I could pay on credit card, then I am protected.

Anyway, can't seem to buy anything until 30th, so suppose I wont know.

#22
mY brother says if you pay by credit card and not debit card you are protected. Anyone know anything about that ?
#23
Great Deal. Still prefer TomTom. Ordered one for my wife.
#24
I'm confused, what's the better sat nav the 300 or the 250?
#25
2 questions - does this have traffic alerts (free?)
Also would it be better value than a TomTom One V3 traffic for £100.

May be comparing apples and oranges, but thought if anyone knows, HUKD would!

Heat and rep for OP!

the 260 is not available in uk and anyway its just a 250 which directs you by street name instaed than turn left or right etc

Street name directions, or TTS, text to speech, is a very useful option though. I bought a newly overhauled Nuvi 350 for £100 from Amazon,and it guided me down to Portugal perfectly. It came with 2008 UK & Europe maps but these have now been updated to 2009, which you can download for free when you register the unit. Also in the "white box", sales patter for refurbished unit, were a mains charger and genuine Garmin leather case.

Not too sure if everyone feels the same though. I just thought this following review was very detailed and may be a person who wishes to buy this would need to be willing to accept most of the problems that are listed in the -VE section below. Source: http://www.reevoo.com/reviews/mpn/garmin/nuvi250w
Not too sure if it's good review site but 12 people found this review helpful..so :roll:

1. Small size. 2. Good GPS reception even in a Renault with the windscreen coating of Anti radiation. 3. Daylight visibility acceptable.

-VE
Where do I start? The Garmin Nuvi 250 is not fit for the purpose it was sold for. There are lots of reasons why you should not buy the Garmin Nuvi 250 but I'll list 12 to give you an idea. The TomTom and Miomaps GPS units are far better. 1. The unit performs particularly badly on roundabouts because it rarely gives adequate warning of the desired exit, which promotes poor signal and lane discipline. 2. Although the copyright on the opening screen says 2007, the maps actually date back to 2003 and don't have the newer roads. 3. The unit can only cope with one waypoint on the route, which is not easy to enter. 4. The unit does not calculate the fastest route when in "Fastest Route" mode. On one particularly journey I decided to take a different road and instantly saved 15 minutes off my calculated journey times. 5. The unit tries to take you through town centres instead of using the by-pass even in the so called "Fastest Route" mode. 6. The routes are labelled by road names, which is downright useless as road signs almost always use numbers. 7. The turn guidance tells you to turn 100m before the junction whatever the speed. On dual carriageways you'll miss your junction and in town you'll turn too early. 8. The route is highlighted by a fat arrow, which obscures junction detail. 9. The autozoom does not work correctly an often requires manual zooming to see enough of the road or enough detail. 10. It sometimes can't find large towns when entering a route because it cannot cope with alternate spelling e.g. St-Yrieix-la-Perche. 11. The female voice can be hard to understand and there are no alternatives supplied. 12. Power supply is connected through the rear rather than the side or underneath, which is harder to reach and means the unit won't lie flat.

Don't get me wrong people do love this product but I just think for another 20-30 squids you can get something without so many imperfections. :thumbsup:
