OK - being completely without a sense of direction, and getting tired of getting lost going to a business dinner, meeting, cool new restaurant, sports bar, etc. in our new town, I’m pulling the trigger on a new GPS.
I have a $300 gift card to Best Buy (the result of a complaint letter I wrote to Best Buy) and have decided on the Garmin Nuvi 350. Tough choice, and I’d like bluetooth, but the “must haves” are spoken instructions, good maps, lots of POIs, ability to update POIs, easy to read screen. And price has to be pretty close to $300 and need to be able to get it from BB since that’s where I’ve got the gift card.
Some basic questions:
I see that you can download POIs from third parties for the Nuvi 350, and the download sites claim more POIs than what comes standard with the unit. Does Garmin make updated POIs available? And what happens when I d/l POIs from a 3rd party and there are now two POIs in the unit for the same location?
How is BB’s price match policy? I see they have the 350 at $399, while I see Walmart and Target both (online) have it for closer to $300, and Amazon has it for around $300.
