First time using a GPS nuvi and i must say im very happy with this product. Very easy to use and worth every single penny!
Shipping was right on time. The text to speech was definitely a great help. After buying the gps, I went for a 20 hours road trip. It was really helpful. I would rate its accuracy 98% because at certain times it where I have to keep left but it says I have to keep right. But was on a very rare occasion. Probably because it is not exactly up to date I guess. But overall I'm very happy and have no complains.
This is the fourth Garmin GPS I've owned and it works perfectly. Easy to use the first time right out of the box. I like the voice directions. Gives street mames and clear directions as well as estimated time of arrival at your destination. The NUVI's are small enough to take with you anywhere. If you rent a car, you can take it with you instead of renting a GPS from the rental agency. If you are looking for a business nearby, it will give you the name, address and phone number all you have to do is type in the type of business your looking for. I would recomend this to anyone.
Good unit for driving3/22/2009
The Garmin Nuvi 350 although an older model does everything most of us need in a GPS. Newer more expensive units simply have more bells and whistles. If you need those then they are the units for you. I think all of the Garmin units will perform well. The only downside to the Nuvi 350 is that voice guidance is not loud enough for me at maximum volume.
First of all, let me say that you can't beat the value! As for the unit being reconditioned, you wouldn't otherwise know it wasn't new. Don't know if that's typical, but I'm pleased. Performance-wise, so far, so good. It's a bit different than my Magellan (sp?) 760, but the pluses out-weigh the minuses so far, and would recommend it in a heartbeat. If you don't see another review from me on this, you'll know that it's still going strong and I'm happier with each day. If not, you'll be the first to know!
Wonderful GPS and mp33/21/2009
I have used the Garmin nuvi350 for couple of days and I am very satified with it. One of my friend bought the same model with over $200. And this one works same. Besides, I am also pleased with the MP3, the speaker sounds nice and loudly, now I perfer it more than CD player in my car. Great deal! What else you can expect?
Well i cant say enough about buy.com , they give great deals. I have another garmin thats a few years old and just wantted something newer , and i had for a little over a month now and so far so good , at first i noticed that the maps weren't 2009 , but no problem , i contacted garmin and since i just bought it they sent an update to my account for free. So for yourself or a gift , i'd buy this again.

Very happy with my choice of the Nuvi 3503/2/2009
I am new to GPI, and am having fun discovering all that this instrument can do. While billed as reconditioned, it looks perfectly new, and works beautifully. As always, Buy com's shipping and handling was super fast.
what a deal2/21/2009
This is my 2nd Nuvi 350. I bought my first one when they first came out! It talks the talk and walks the walk! I use it all the time, but my wife needed one also. This refurb is as awesome and with latest maps! Nuvi is the greatest of GPS systems - it can add FUDOR travel reviews, language translations (can order now overseas or in local mexican), READ the manual as it has so many cool features.
Nothing more needed, except...2/18/2009
I have been extremely pleased with this GPS. Fast link to satellites, maps up to date (came with 2009 maps), and extremely easy to use. I bought 2 of these: one for me, one for my folks in Florida after my Mom told me she got lost on the way to the hospital. By getting 2 I was able to teach them how to use it over the phone :) Nice feature: it is able to read the new class 6 SG cards. VERY nice for storing a ton of music or data (I've used a 4 GB with no issues). Only thing it lacks is the ability to play video files (it does play jpg). Other than that, for the price it cannot be beat!
