Garmin International has announced that nuMaps Guarantee is now available. This program allows a customer who purchases a new nuvi or zumo GPS device to update the unit map free of charge if both of the following conditions exist:
1. The customer registers the new unit here within 60 days of the unit's first use.
2. A newer map becomes available within 60 days after the unit has been activated.
For life on the go, nuvi 250 packs preloaded maps for North America or Europe and millions of destinations in a sleek, stylish navigator. For more mapping options, check out the transatlantic n?vi 270 or n?vi 200 with less map coverage at a lower price. Like the rest of the n?vi 200-series, nuvi 250 is affordably priced and simple to use.
Arrive In Style
Available in classic silver and now pink, there's a nuvi 250 for every taste. Go pink and accessorize your look with n?vi 250 and its matching case (sold separately). Smart and stylish, this pink n?vi is packed with detailed roads and points of interest. Take n?vi shopping and get turn-by-turn directions to the front door. It also fits neatly in your handbag. No matter the color, you'll always arrive fashionably early with n?vi.
Navigate With Ease
n?vi 250 comes ready to go right out of the box with preloaded City Navigator NT street maps, including a hefty points of interest (POIs) database with hotels, restaurants, fuel, ATMs and more. Simply touch the color screen to enter a destination, and n?vi takes you there with 2-D or 3-D maps and turn-by-turn voice directions. In addition, n?vi 250 accepts custom points of interest (POIs), such as school zones and safety cameras and lets you set proximity alerts to warn you of upcoming POIs.
Take It With You
Like the rest of the n?vi 200-series, nuvi 250 sports a sleek, slim design and fits comfortably in your pocket or purse. Its rechargeable lithium-ion battery makes it convenient for navigation by car or foot.
Go Beyond Navigation
Navigation is just the beginning. nuvi 250 includes many travel tools including JPEG picture viewer, world travel clock with time zones, currency converter, measurement converter, calculator and more. It also comes with Garmin Lock, an anti-theft feature, and is compatible with our free Garmin Garage where you can download custom vehicles that show your location on the map. Optional plug-in SD cards let you add additional features. Purchase Garmin Travel Guides for detailed data on attractions and our SaversGuide? for information on nearby merchants offering discounts to customize n?vi for your travel needs.
