The Garmin Nuvi 250 is an entry-level GPS receiver released in mid-2007. Designed as a low-cost alternative to its predecessor, late 2005’s $1000 Nuvi 350. While not as fully featured as the Nuvi 350, this GPS does include the essentials for the average driver’s traveling needs. The Nuvi 250 comes preloaded with maps for North America, including the United States, Canada and Mexico. Additional maps may be loaded to the device via SD Card or USB. This GPS also features voice prompts (“turn left in 500 ft.”), but does not feature spoken street names like in most higher-end receivers. With the ability to save 500 favorite locations as well as custom points of interest, most drivers looking for an entry-level GPS should find Garmin’s Nuvi 250 more than adequate.
