Nuvi 1300, 1350 and 255W seams good but I wanted to ask on this forum to be sure they work well with OSM.
The Wiki is a little bit messy… for example it describe method to log GPS trace on 255 but it also say that 2x5 only work with software version 2.50 and 2.70 … Is 255 really included in 2x5 or is it special ?
So if someone can confirm me that OSM maps and recording are working on 1350 or 255(w) I would be happy
Does they work but with some limitations ?
Which one is the best ?
I find that the “Navigator series” GPS do not make it convenient to record GPS tracks to upload to OSM. While they are superb for navigation, I have not found an easy to turn on track recording. I think some people have had limited success with recording tracks.
Good units for track recording are the Garmin Legend or Vista Hcx, but they lack voice announcement which are handy for turn by turn directions.
Anyhow, I don’t advice buying the 250w, as it does not support in an easy way route planning, plus I didn’t manage to have the unit working with an OSM for the whole of Europe, I had to limit the size of the OSM map to a few countries (even if it was on an external SD card).
