Nuvi 260w

Discussion in 'Garmin' started by Timothy J. Trace, May 20, 2008.

  1. Hi --

    I'm considering replacing my SP2610 with a Nuvi 260W, mostly because I
    like the 3D views in the Nuvi.

    The 2610 was a very expensive model in its day - which was, what, all
    of about 2.5 years ago? Am I going to lose anything in the
    transition?

    ....besides the external antenna port? Will the Nuvi be able to hold
    onto the birds when I plug it into the wife's 2001 Chevy minivan with
    the metallic windshield tint?

    Thanks for chiming in...if you choose to :)

    Best regards,

    Tim ==

    For the record, my Nuvi 350, despite its high-sensitivity receiver, could
    not pick up any satellites while inside a several year old Toyota Avalon.
    Therefore it is possible there are vehicles that may give one of these
    things trouble.
