My Garmin is a 250 (not the wide one) I like it because it fits easily into my pocket for city walking (it gives pedestrian directions also). I also have downloaded family photos and all my fav places to visit in different countries. If you are looking at the must have, I would suggest one with bluetooth if your car does not have a hands free kit. Make sure it has coverage of UK Ireland and Europe. I see some Sat Navs are selling with only UK and Ireland.Can I ask a basic question about choice of Sat Navs; there seems to be an enormous range of machines available, but what features are a 'must have' and which are 'nice to have but will probably never use them'? The Garmin 250W seems to be a safe, middle-of-the-road (sorry, no pun intended!) model that has most features you might want for Irish (and occasional) UK driving, but how much further up the (price and model) range should you go for useful features, before you end up paying too much for features that are not needed? I can't just leave the choice to Santa without doing a bit of homework for him! Many thanks on his behalf!!
