GPS Phone : Garmin Nuvi 350 Review Revisited

The Garmin Nuvi 350 cracked open a big market for Garmin in small svelte GPS navigation systems that could be carried anywhere. The Garmin Nuvi 350 came out priced to blow your pocketbook away but has eased greatly since its debut, and prices online can be found hovering around $600; not bad for such a slim and power packed device. The unit comes equipped with the usual easy to use Garmin interface, but also adds on some components that allow for easy travel; it is billed as a travel companion. The unit has currency converters, and audibook and MP3 playing capability. What really makes it stand out is the simple and small design wrapped around a solid software platform that really makes traveling easy. It’s based on the SiRF star III chipset, so you’ll get great reception almost anywhere you can see the sky.
