Overview

Simple navigation at an affordable price — that's nüvi 250. This entry-level personal travel assistant comes with preloaded maps for all of Europe. For added flexibility, choose nüvi 270 with preloaded maps for both Europe and North America, or save more with nüvi 200 which offers regional map coverage at a lower price. Like all nüvi 200-series members, the 250 features an easy-to-use colourful touchscreen and ultra-slim design — perfect for everyday navigation.

Arrive In Style

Available in classic silver and now pink, there's a nüvi 200 for every taste. Go pink and accessorize your look with nüvi 250 and its matching case. Smart and stylish, this pink nüvi will guide you with turn-by-turn directions to your favourite boutique or restaurant and fits neatly in your handbag. No matter the colour, the portable, good-looking nüvi looks great on the dash and will show you a good time.

Navigate With Ease

nüvi 250 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. Simply touch the colour screen to enter a destination, and nüvi takes you there with 2D or 3D maps and turn-by-turn voice directions. In addition, nüvi 250 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.

Go Beyond Navigation

Navigation is just the beginning. nüvi 250 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 for travel guides provide detailed data for area attractions, so you can customise nüvi for your travel needs.
