Summary: We replaced our previous Garmin with this model because it has traffic updates and road closings, which we really needed to know about on our last trip. I love it for finding specific stores I want to shop at: just look up the addresses on the computer and put them into Garmin, and it takes you...
Summary: I got this for my husband for Christmas and so far we love it. The only thing is if you are entering an address like 100 s. 400 E.It is a little tricky. First is ask you for the street number and then the street name. So you first enter 100 then on street name 400.
Summary: Excellent GPS - VERY easy to set up and understand. Map is clear and accurate and there is a feature to alter the voice that speaks the directions (different languages, different accents, male/female, etc). It's my first GPS and it is wonderful - I would definitely recommend this to a friend!
Summary: I really like the traffic receiver and how it re-routes you when their is traffic. It doesnt do that great in big cities like NYC, so that can be a little frustrating with it constantly re- routing you.
Summary: It has come in handy in traffic situations when evasive maneuvers are needed. But I have not been impressed by the routes it selects in areas that I know (which doesn't exactly fill me with confidence in this device).
Summary: I live in the country so I haven't seen the traffic option much but what I have seen works great. I bought the 205 for my son and he really liked it but I wanted traffic and bluetooth capabilities so I bought the 265t. Unfortunately, my phone isn't compatible so I can't review that part either.
Summary: I bought the Garmin 265t as a replacement for my TomTom One, which was stolen. The Tomtom was pretty basic, but very reliable. I've found, in general, that while the Garmin has more advanced features, it does not perform as well the Tomtom on some basic things. Pros: 1.
Summary: I have purchased this GPS just before a road trip to Los Angeles from San Francisco. The free traffic updates was the reason I chose this version over a 265W-same price at [...]. The traffic information has been very useful in LA.
Summary: This is a solid GPS unit. It has a good number of features and is relatively intuitive to use. Let's get the weaker points out of the way. Like with other GPS units I've used, using a GPS to get somewhere you're familiar with usually isn't a good idea because the GPS will take you on inefficient...
