A good, basic GPS -- but with many glaring bugs and issues

Brian Baskin, Amazon
10 January 2011
  • Summary: UPDATE: The biggest issue I had with the GPS was its problematic Bluetooth support. This appears to NOT be a Garmin issue, but instead an Apple issue with their iPhones. After growing tired of multiple bugs with the iPhone, I switched to an Android phone.

Garmin nuvi 265T Car GPS Receiver

  • Summary: This device definitely helps and perhaps if it were used in any other state it would get a good or excellent rating, however I am in New Jersey and the road system here is extremely confusing even for the Garmin.

Why does it take 5 minutes to find satellites?!

Steve D, Amazon
20 October 2009
  • Summary: Don't believe the "HotFix" technology. It seems unless we use our Garmin 265T within hours of shutting it off it takes 5 minutes for this unit to acquire satellites! I've updated to the latest firmware and still no difference.

Good features, but bad reception

  • Summary: I purchased the nüvi 265T about three weeks ago. It's a well made unit with excellent features. I particularly like having the FM traffic receiver since I end up driving into downtown Chicago at least once a week for work. When satellite reception is good, this unit is nearly flawless.

Left, no, RIGHT!

  • Summary: For the most part this gps is okay but it has an unfortunate habit of saying things like "Turn left in 200 feet," but then you get to the intersection it says "Turn right onto (streetname).

Gets you from A to B

  • Summary: This is a review of my first stand alone GPS unit. I have used iGuidance on my PPC with a bluetooth receiver in the past. The reason I purchased the 265t is for the "integrated FM traffic receiver" with the lifetime subscription.
