What if one device could help you navigate anywhere in the U.S. and Canada, while offering travel tips, storing your favorite tunes and photos, providing translation assistance, and more? That device is here, and it's not much bigger than a deck of cards. The Garmin nuvi 350 is set to revolutionize what we expect from a GPS navigation device, or from any device for that matter.

Design
With a total weight of 5.1 ounces and slim measurements of 3.87 x 2.91 x 0.87 inches (WxHxD), the nuvi 350 is just right for the pocket or purse. A bright, 64,000-color display dominates the front of the device and a resolution of 320 x 240 pixels means that there's plenty of room for displaying map data and other elements of the device's interface. An SD memory card slot is provided for expansion software, such as a points of interest database, media files and electronic guides (see below). The flip-up antenna includes an MCX-type connector for connecting the unit to an external GPS antenna. Meanwhile, a powerful built-in speaker resides on the back of device. A built-in lithium ion battery will give you for to eight hours of battery life, depending on use. In addition to an AC charger, the unit also ships with a 12-volt power adapter for vehicle charging, as well as a windshield suction cup mount.

Fortunately, Garmin has made it easy to interface with the nuvi 350's 700 megabytes of onboard memory, thanks to "plug-and-play" USB mass storage support. Just plug the device into your computer's USB port and you've got instantaneous access to all the audio books, music, photos, supplemental maps and other data on the nuvi 350's internal and SD card memory.

Navigation
The nuvi 350 is first and foremost a personal GPS device. Wherever you go -- in your car or on foot-- the device offers extremely accurate position data, thanks to a high-sensitivity integrated GPS receiver by SiRF and WAAS-enabled, 12-satellite reception. Combined with detailed maps of the U.S., Canada and Puerto Rico the nuvi 350 provides automatic routing, turn-by-turn voice directions, and touchscreen control-- making it easy to find your way anywhere. Plus, the unique "text-to-speech" feature calls out turns by street name, and you can choose from either 2D or 3D mapping perspectives when you're viewing your route on the display. Additionally, the nuvi 350 is compatible with Garmin's GTM 10 FM TMC traffic receiver, which allows users to avoid traffic tie-ups by simply pushing a button that will calculate a new route.

I bought this one as a gift because I have one myself and it works great. My daughter has the 200 Garmin and the text to speech makes a real difference. Wouldn't get one without that.

Comments about Garmin Garmin nuvi 350 3.5" Touchscreen Auto GPS Navigation Unit:

I don't know how I got anywhere before I started using the Garman 350. My wife bought it for me for my birthday. She probably got tired of getting lost to. We used it on our trip to Cape Cod, that didnt look like an easy place to get around in. We had no trouble getting to where we wanted to go. It took us right to the front door of where we wanted to go.

Comments about Garmin Garmin nuvi 350 3.5" Touchscreen Auto GPS Navigation Unit:

When I travel to unknown areas I rely on the Garmin 350 to get me there without getting lost. The voice, turn by turn directions lets you keep your eyes on the road without looking down at a map. The clarity of the voice needs to be improved so you have to listen closely to the pronounciation of the road names as you get your turn by turn directions, otherwise this is a great travel assistant. I never travel without it.
