2 out of 5 stars   Good value multi-functional GPS w/ bug
By Big Alan (Salem, VA) March 30, 2011
Review submitted for Garmin nuvi 295W Wi-Fi Portable GPS Navigator (GRNUVI295W)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Fast satellite search, Easy email setup, Good Value, Easy WiFi setup
Cons: Lockup during AC charging, Poor Battery Life, Firmware defect
Other Comments: I updated the firmware and the Map the first day I received this GPS. At this price, this GPS has enough functions like GPS, 3-MP Camera, Wi-Fi, Email, weather, etc. Pretty cool. Two big issues. 1) battery life is really poor. You need to recharge it every 2-3 days, even if you don't use it. 2) when I use a standard AC charger to charge this unit, it locks up in 15 minutes. Power key does not work, so I have to take out the battery and put it back in to unlock. Solution: Turn off the unit during charge when using AC charger. You can still see the animated battery icon during the charge, and it won't stop! So remember to unplug the AC charger. Just another firmware bug.

4 out of 5 stars   Nice multifunctional GPS with good value
By Jason (Salem, VA) March 21, 2011
Review submitted for Garmin nuvi 295W Wi-Fi Portable GPS Navigator (GRNUVI295W)
Pros: Easy wifi connection, Simple Email setup, Precise, Excellent Value, Multifunctional GPS
Cons: Lockup using AC charger
Other Comments: Compared with my nuvi200w, this 295W searches satellites much faster and more accurate. Email and wifi setup is easy, but screen resolution for web browser is not high enough, but for this price [$], I cannot expect more.One major problem, if you use standard AC USB adapter to charge this GPS, after 10-15 minutes it will lock up by itself. You cannot turn it off. You have to take out the battery and put it back in. I updated the firmware but it doesn't help.

5 out of 5 stars   Best GPS bang for the buck.
By J.R. (Crystal River, FL.) March 14, 2011
Review submitted for Garmin nuvi 295W Wi-Fi Portable GPS Navigator (GRNUVI295W)
Verified Purchaser
Pros:
Cons:
Other Comments: I wanted to replace my 5 year old Garmin. I paid less than a 1/3 of my original Garmin and got a portable GPS, camera, music player, and internet access. When I switch the thing to pedestrian mode I can even use it in my airplane. I also love the small cell phone size, which allows me more placement options in my small Honda Fit. Gotta luv it.

By Arn (Upstate, NY) March 14, 2011
Review submitted for Garmin nuvi 295W Wi-Fi Portable GPS Navigator (GRNUVI295W)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Good Camera, GPS is convenient, Language selection
Cons: Low audio, Wifi hot spots poor, Email difficult
Other Comments: Prime use as a GPS, convenient to use as a portable. Audio is low, but I bought an external spreaker to use in noisy situations. Not happy with the WIFI. Have tried it in several hot spots, so far, not able to use email or use the browser. Weather service is OK.

5 out of 5 stars   Perfect Second GPS
By Hilltop (Buffalo, NY) March 06, 2011
Review submitted for Garmin nuvi 295W Wi-Fi Portable GPS Navigator (GRNUVI295W)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Great for Traveling, Camera is handy, Web Browser, Compact Size, Can Check Email
Cons: Small screen size
Other Comments: This is my second 295W, I thought I had lost my first one on a trip, but found it after I had purchase the replacement. With the Wi-Fi, you can check email without taking your laptop with you and costs far less than having a smartphone. Having a camera in the unit increases the utility.This unit is a cross of a handheld unit and Auto model, which makes it great for frequent travelers. If you just want something for your car, I would recommend something with a larger screen, but at [$], its hard to beat

4 out of 5 stars   A very hapy customer
By Travelling Typhoon (Seattle, WA) October 27, 2010
Review submitted for Garmin nuvi 295W Wi-Fi Portable GPS Navigator (GRNUVI295W)
Verified Purchaser
Pros:
Cons:
Other Comments: I am very happy with the device itself. The only problem is the suction cup (that's why I gave only 4-stars,) [...] and an additional 8GB sd card which made the system perfect.The device looks much more expensive, like a [$] nokia phone. In addition to its looks... MP3 player, wireless (email), and camera proved useful.I made a 10-hour trip to Canada and this was my best friend with MP3 player and amazingly clear directions.
