Product Details

Garmin Nuvi 260 GPS Navigation System - 0100062131

Bring the ultra-cool nüvi 260 along for the ride, and arrive on time and in style. Similar to nüvi 250, nüvi 260 is attractively-priced and simple to use. Plus, this sleek, slim navigator comes with turn-by-turn voice directions that announce the name of streets as you navigate, so you can keep your eyes on the road. With nüvi 260 you’re just a few screen taps away from anywhere.

Navigate With Ease
nüvi 260 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. It even announces the name of exits and streets so you never have to take your eyes off the road. Simply touch the color screen to enter a destination, and nüvi takes you there with 2D or 3D maps and turn-by-turn voice directions. In addition, nüvi 260 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 nüvi 200-series, nüvi 260 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. nüvi 260 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 configurable vehicle icons that let you select car-shaped graphics to 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 nüvi for your travel needs.

    Comments about Garmin Nuvi 260 GPS Navigation System:

    An excellent, intuitive device that is very straight forward. Took it out of the box, charged it up, and started to go! Volume is great and easy to hear. Would like different accents to choose from. Device gives good ETAs and the trip data is fun. There are sooo many POIs! It's hard to take your eyes off this beaut while driving, so resist the temptation!

      Nice maps with easy-to-use controls. Not fancy like the Garmin Quest, but it will be perfect for the people who just want to go from point A to point B. The text-to-speech function is key and is worth the extra money.

        Comments about Garmin Nuvi 260 GPS Navigation System:

        We bought the 260 because it was simple without the MP3 or bluetooth or much else. We just wanted a GPS program and not pay for the other 'useless' stuff.
        We are a duel language family, so the multilingual voices are great and very accurate too.
        Only reason I give it 4 instead of 5 stars is we really only tested it around town. We will give it a thorough test in May.

        Service and delivery comments:

        Delivery was 2 days....about 12 days quicker than promised!

        Pro-Small and easy to put in purse when leaving car. partitularly like the way Nuvi guides you to correct lane for oncoming turns.
        Con--Often chooses sub-optimal routes, but will probably get you there eventually. I don't like having to spell out destinations and wish for voice recognition.

          Very customizable. You can create/upload your own Points of Interests (POI). Garmin provides over 6 million out of the box. They created an E85 gas station POI file for Jay Leno that is downloadable. You can download different vehicle icons. You can purchase additional maps/accessories. I also have the carrying case and portable friction mount (weighted bean bag dash mount, not permanent).

          Service and delivery comments:

          Shipping was quick and free before Xmas. They also had the best price by far.

            Comments about Garmin Nuvi 260 GPS Navigation System:

            I bought this for my wife for Christmas and we've used it a great deal thus far. It's a nice unit, doesn't mispronounce street names, quickly finds the next best route if you miss a turn, has a good battery, excellent screen and it's easy to search for places you want to go if you don't know the address. I always thought these were toys but to be honest, I'd kind of like to get one for myself though I'm very good with directions. Every now and again it's taken 1-3 minutes to acquire a satellite, then worked perfectly afterwards, but those were snowy days so I don't hold it against the unit, 99% of the time it works better than advertised and is a genuine asset. I highly recommend the product to anyone looking for a compact, portable GPS system.
