The Nuvi 250W is a GPS unit designed to direct you to your chosen destination using voice navigation, a touchscreen and 3D maps. Garmin, the device's developer, periodically releases updates for the 250W, which improve the operating system. However, don't expect your Nuvi 250W to connect to a satellite and automatically update. Garmin provides a free computer program, called "WebUpdater," to aide you in installing the latest software updates onto your GPS.
