Garmin Nuvi 260W: 90% Great.

The Garmin Nuvi 260W Navigation Device has been my first experience with a touch screen navigation system. All in all I would have to say my Garmin use has been almost entirely positive, and if I were a teacher I would give the product an A-.

Tom Tom

I bought the Tom Tom Go 510 about a year ago. I'm in the real estate business and I can't imagine working without one.

Review of Garmin Out of the Box

So my dear sweet wife gave me a Garmin StreePilot c330 for Christmas (we sometimes bicker about directions in the car, so there is some controversy who needs this gift more, but that is neither here nor there). I wanted to challenge myself to see how quickly I could get it working…
