Garmin nuvi 295W

Discontinued. Broswe our selection of other automotive GPS units >>

nüvi 295W offers a new take on an old favorite with Wi-Fi® connectivity, a 3 MP camera with auto-focus, a dual-orientation screen that switches between portrait and landscape view and much more.

Get Connected

Wi-Fi connectivity on the nüvi 295W provides a full desktop web experience with an HTML browser so you can surf the web whenever and wherever you choose¹. Check and send e-mail, including Hotmail®, G-mail®, AOL® mail, POP3 and IMAP, and view email attachments of Microsoft® Word, Excel®, PowerPoint®, PDF and JPG files. You can also search an abundance of customer-rated points of interest (POIs), such as restaurants, hotels and more, using Google™ Local Search.

Get Going

With a single tap on the dual-oriented screen, you can avoid writing down addresses and go straight to your destination. nüvi 295W offers 1-touch navigation from your e-mail, address book and local search results. Additionally, the unique 3 MP camera geotags pictures so you can create routes to them. You can also send the picture to a friend to route to or upload to the web to auto-locate on a map.

Get Turn-by-Turn Directions

With an intuitive interface that greets you with simple icons and a scrollable menu, nüvi 295W is the perfect travel companion for getting around town. With a quick tap on an icon or flick of the menu, you can easily look up addresses and services and get voice-prompted, turn-by-turn directions that speak street names to your destination. It comes preloaded with detailed City Navigator® NT street maps for the U.S. and Canada with nearly 6 million points of interest (POIs) such as stores, restaurants, hotels, entertainment venues, gas stations, ATMs and more, and speed limits for most major roads. cityXplorer™ maps are also available for your nüvi 295W. cityXplorer maps provide the latest detailed roads and points of interest for metropolitan areas. Visit Garmin's cityXplorer page for more information regarding product compatibility.

Go Beyond Navigation

nüvi 295W isn't just for navigation. A quick tap provides access to the lengthy feature set, including a calculator, stop watch, calendar, check lists and more. Also included are travel tools such as a JPEG picture viewer, world travel clock with time zones, currency converter and current and 5-day weather forecasts. With photo navigation, you can download pictures from Garmin Connect™ Photos and navigate to them. Garmin Locate™ automatically marks your position when you remove nüvi from your car so you'll never forget where you parked again, and nüvi 295W is compatible with our free Garmin Garage where you can download custom voices and vehicles. Enhance your travel experience with optional microSD™ cards.

¹Wi-Fi connectivity is only available in select coverage areas.
