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

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
