Garmin nuvi 255W And Peace of Mind

Driving alone in a strange city and getting lost can be time consuming and frustrating.  It can also be dangerous.  The Garmin does more than direct you to your destination; it provides peace of mind.

Driving alone and in unfamiliar territory is something done by millions of people every week.  Getting lost in unfamiliar surroundings is also not uncommon; however, some of us have a knack for getting lost in the worst possible areas.  As a female driving alone in San Antonio, Texas, I found myself in a part of town that looked like a movie set for a gang fight.  Stopping at a corner convenience store for directions seemed to be the only option.  As I walked back to the car, I observed several young men leaning against the front of the car.  I smiled and tried to “show no fear” although they probably heard my heart thumping.  They snarled in return but jumped away from the car.  When I checked into the hotel, I mentioned the experience to the desk clerk and was told “you’re one lucky lady”.  When I saw the local morning paper, the headlines reported a “gang related” murder directly across the street from the corner convenience store that provided directions!  I knew two things: I have a guardian angel and I needed a Garmin.

After some research, I found the Garmin nuvi 255W.  It is more than just a navigation system.  It has features that make it extremely helpful.  The touch screen is easy to use and connection to satellites is lightening fast.  It has a Photo Navigator that lets you upload geo-coded photos from a phone, camera or photo site and then navigate to the location.  The 4.3 inch display screen is clear, bright and easy to read.  In the upper corner of the screen, it shows the posted speed limit for major roads.  It has memory slots to add maps and travel guides.  Another very helpful feature is the ability to send addresses from Google Maps or Map Quest directly to the Garmin.  You simply connect the Garmin to your computer using the USB port.

The Garmin is portable which means you can easily carry it in your purse or pocket.  It can be used in a car or when you’re walking.  My previous navigation system was in the dash of my Eddie Bauer Expedition.  When I changed cars, the navigation system was gone.   With the portable GarminFind Article, it stays with you.  Having a Garmin nuvi 255W by my side is not a luxury.  It really is a matter of safety and there is no price tag on peace of mind.
