Garmin Nuvi 295W – GPS Navigator or Alternative for Smart-phone
Do you simply love the features of a smart-phone, but can’t afford one? Do you own one, but don’t want to get bound to a contractual or monthly data plan of a smart-phone? Imagine, how can you have access to all the features of such a gadget without actually having one? Well, Garmin has launched Nuvi 295W as a blessing in disguise.
It is indeed a GPS navigator, but the device has an array of features apt for replacing a smart-phone. Nuvi 295W appears to be a clone of Garminfone by the look-and-feel of it. This thin portable device, next in the Nuvi series, promises to change a traveler’s life with its 3.5 inch touch-screen and features such as text-to-speech.
W for Wi-fi
Garmin has introduced Wi-fi as a pleasant surprise to its new GPS unit. You can browse the web, read e-mails, check mail attachments, upload geo-tagged photos, and search through the Google Local Search by hoofing up the device to a hotspot.
Garmin Nuvi 295W enables one-touch navigation between your e-mails, local search results and address book (of up to 5,000 contacts). You can even ask your friend to upload the pictures of a route on the web for auto-locating later.
The ability of this gadget to switch between landscape and portrait mode facilitates you to view the maps with ease and interact with the device conveniently.
Follow the Spoken Directions
The intuitive interface with simple menus and familiar icons of this navigator makes it a comfortable drive in the town. With a quick tap you can look-up addresses and get voice-prompted for turn-by-turn instructions to one of those 6 million points-of-interest or to remind about speed limits on major road.
- Through Gamin Locate you can mark your car’s parking location.
- Shoot the route or destination with 3Mp auto-focus camera.

- A calculator, calendar, stop watch, time zone enabled world clock, weather forecast, currency converter, the list of features is endless!
