Garmin Nuvi 255W GPS Navigator Review – Pros and Cons

The Garmin Nuvi 255W is currently one of the best-selling GPS navigators in the market thanks to its competitive pricing and ease of use. Here is a quick review of this GPS device.

Cons: For the sake of a fair assessment, we will list down a few of the flaws that we have noticed on the Garmin Nuvi 255W. The truth is, we had trouble finding any major defects on this device. Most of the flaws listed here are pretty minor ones.

For instance, this model does not come with a lifetime of map updates (not many models do). This model ships with a vehicle power charger, but not a regular power socket charger. It also does not come with a USB cable.

Feature wise, this model does not have many road preference adjustments and so not as customizable as we would like it to be. Some customers have reported that it was not easy typing on the touch screen. Then again, this is after all an entry-level model.

Pros: The price of the Garmin Nuvi 255W is very competitive, especially for a huge 4.3-inch display. It currently costs around $ 160 each. For that price, you even get a text-to-speech feature that reads out street names.

The menu layout was very easy to use and intuitive. Even the most non-tech-savvy person will have no problems using this device. It was also very quick and responsive, giving prompt directions and recalculating routes quickly. You can also use the Garmin Nuvi 255W to access MSN Direct services to receive live traffic updates, check the weather or current gas prices. Although the Garmin Nuvi 255W is far from being a flawless device, it is one of the best entry-level GPS navigators around.

4 Misconceptions of the Promark GPS Shadow Battery

4 Misconceptions of the Promark GPS Shadow Battery.

Hopefully this video can shed some light on some of the common misunderstandings currently surrounding the newly released Promark GPS Shadow Drone’s battery.

There are notices on the product to only use the included micro USB cable, but that’s perhaps so that they sell their own line of micro USB cables…I haven’t had any issues at all using other micro USB cables/chargers with this drone battery.

Here are some purchase links:

Find the Best GPS Auto Tracker For Your Business Fleet

GPS auto tracker units are a great way to manage your vehicle fleet. Depending on how many vehicles you are planning to track and whether you need real time tracking information it might be easier to contract with a local commercial GPS tracking provider. They will install and maintain the tracking units. You will be charged for each unit that is monitored each month. This can be expensive but it does not require you to install the necessary equipment. These units require good cell phone coverage to work properly and the vehicle can only be tracked in areas without overhead obstructions. Tall building, high terrain features and dense tree cover can degrade accuracy.

As an option you can also opt to purchase and use small portable real time GPS auto tracking units. These portable tracking units can be installed or hidden on any vehicle that is to be tracked. Since they are portable you can use one tracking unit to randomly check your employee performance. You will have to either enter a contract agreement or purchase service one month time periods without a contract with a service provider. Usually purchasing services one month at a time is more expensive. This option saves money by only having to purchase one or two tracking units and not having to pay for unit installation. Again these units require good cell phone coverage to work properly and the vehicle can only be tracked in areas without overhead obstruction. Tall building, high terrain features and dense tree cover can degrade accuracy.

If however you want to avoid paying GPS service provider fees and be able to randomly check on your drivers and vehicles then you can purchase one or more passive GPS auto tracking units. A Passive tracking stick can be attached to any vehicle covertly. They are small and do not require a cell phone link which allows them to work anywhere there is an unobstructed sky. Basically these units work anywhere in the world. To properly use this type tracking unit you basically charge or add fresh batteries to the unit then place it in the target vehicle. After a few days you simply retrieve it and upload the data to your computer. Many small vehicle fleet managers use this method to readily and covertly manage their equipment and employees. Once your employees know that they are being monitored you will realize reduced maintenance and fuel costs along with increased efficiency of your staff. All of which will improve your businesses bottom line.

No matter what GPS auto tracking unit you select all will provide you and your business with a tool that will save you money and allow you to serve your customers better.

GPS Ankle Bracelets – GPS Monitoring and Tracking Features and Battery Charging Info – Because prisons are so crowded, many offenders are under house arrest and need constant monitoring. We provide GPS ankle bracelet offender tracking monitoring. Presently, there’s a huge problem in that the systems being currently in use as they generate an enormous amount of false alarms, causing law enforcement case workers to be deluged with non-pertinent data, which generally go unnoticed similar to how people react to car alarms in parking lots today.

To illustrate this problem further with an analogy: Could you respond to 3000 spam email messages per day per computer? Of course not.

Emap’s patented and proprietary GPS ankle monitoring bracelets solves this problem by eliminating over 99% of false alarms while keeping constant tracking of each offender, even when a GPS signal is not present! The result is an easy-to-read report on every offender and their whereabouts, 24/7, at the tip of your fingernail for easy reading and analysis. The system prioritizes each infraction, is monitored by real human beings, and uses fiber optics so the bracelets can’t be cut or removed without sending a red alert warning to the case worker.
