logo_blognavigasi2Blog sederhana Ini adalah wadah atau media saya untuk menumpahkan seluruh rekam jejak tentang keminatan saya pada Dunia navigasi. Navigasi bukanlah merupakan latar belakang pendidikan saya, akan tetapi ini tdak menghalangi saya untuk berinteraksi dengan siapa saja yang memiliki minat minat yang sama dengan saya di bidang Navigasi. Untuk bernavigasi saya menggunakan GPS Genggam Garmin 60CSx, Motorcycle Garmin Zumo 550, dan GPS Car Navigation Mio digiwalker C230. Semoga berguna

    I have had the 265wt for a couple of weeks now. I try not to buy gadgets or toys unless I can get a lot of use out of them, this one I use every day. I don’t have much experience with other GPS’s other than a friend’s TomTom but I can offer some insight from just a regular guy.

    The TomTom was fun but when I did my research there were a few features that seemed better on this Garmin, most notably “free traffic” which I will discus in a minute.

    Navigation
    On the first day I took it out we went to my niece’s house. I had been there before but was not entirely familiar with the area. On the way there it took me exactly as I had gone before when I used MapQuest. On the way home it told me to drive northeast about 1.1 miles to catch a different highway when I was actually trying to go southeast. Needless to say I ignored the advice. After about five minutes it was clear that I should have listened and my wife and son made some unwarranted comments about how I always think I know better. Forty-five minutes later, rather than twenty-five, we pulled into the driveway and the abuse came to an end. If you get a GPS, keep an open mind about where it tells you to go.

    It seems like the Tom-Tom was a little more intuitive about addresses when I was keying them in but the Garmin was easy enough. It helps to know the city you are going to.

    The screen on the map has tons of information including speed limit signs and I love the speed limit signs.

    Free Traffic
    I had to go to my uncle’s funeral in some podunk Missouri town. The navigation on the way there was perfect and it took me right to the Funeral Home. On the way home there was one of those rainstorms where you know you should pull off but visibility was so low the next guy would probably just run into the back of you. So it is white knuckle time and about 20 minutes into it the traffic icon changes and shows a one minute delay. About a minute later a little blip shows up on the road ahead of me. As I got closer to the symbol the road went down to one lane and as I cleared the crest of the hill there was a Police car on the shoulder and a car that had slid off the road. It was nice to get the heads up given the road conditions and surprising because I was almost an hour and a half away from St. Louis.

    In daily conditions I can’t say there is anything too surprising. So far it is just heavy traffic in all the usual places and the unit always shows a delay of some type when I go back and forth to work. I will say it is nice to get an ETA based on the traffic delays.

    TTS/Sound
    Text-to-Speech is good; the words can be a little strange when you use some of the different dialects. Sound for directions is plenty good. I only have it at sixty percent because after that it interferes with my music. If you need to hear the directions you are going to have to turn the music down a little anyway.

    Bluetooth
    I didn’t really have high expectations for Bluetooth. I already own a Jabra that sits on my visor. The Bluetooth on the Garmin is actually better than the Jabra but sound is still a little too weak for a phone. This feature was about a good as I would have expected.

    Overall this was well worth the $250 I paid for it. The traffic was the dealmaker for me and the ads are not an issue at all. They only take up a incredibly small portion of the screen and just go away on their own.

    This is a great product for the price! I replaced an older, much higher priced unit. It’s small

  3. Your blog keeps getting better and better! Your older articles are not as good as newer ones you have a lot more creativity and originality now keep it up!

    Have you ever considered adding more videos to your blog posts to keep the readers more entertained? I mean I just read through the entire article of yours and it was quite good but since I’m more of a visual learner,I found that to be more helpful well let me know how it turns out. This is good…thanks for sharing
