Question about Garmin nuvi 250W GPS Receiver
I bought my nuvi 250, 6 weeks ago and to begin with it gave advanced voice prompts of turns ahead approx 750m before I needed to turn and then again at 50m and at the turn itself. Now however it only gives warning at 50m and then turn, not further away, so if you are not watching the screen, there's not enough time to eract to the voice prompt.
My nuvi 250 which was bought at the same time didn't even give any announcements ahead. It would just say "turn right" when it was almost too late (and sometimes it was even too late). I didn't even know it was supposed to do that although I wished it would because I had seen this feature on a Tom Tom. Yesterday I did a software update and now it gives the warnings in advance. The update is just to solve this problem. See http://www8.garmin.com/products/webupdater/
