Summary: We purchased this for our 10 hour road trip. I don't know how we survived without it before! It is extremely accurate and easy to use. We were able to search for food genres in the area we were at when deciding on meals and even gas stations! It was AMAZING!
Summary: This is so easy to use! Now I hardly ever get lost! lol Living in NY, sometimes the turning rules are a little different (ie: main roads and service roads). If I am required by the GPS to make a right, the law may prohibit it. But, it figures it out and gives me a new route.
Summary: I wanted to find a gps for my techno-challenged husband. This one is it! The setup was so easy. The options are great--plenty, but not too many. Updates can be handled online. We opted for the 3 1/2 one instead of the larger model, because we can stick it into a pocket and carry it on walking...
Summary: I bought this product for a trip I was very nervous about so I did A LOT of research on what GPS to buy. I read the customer reviews at all the major electronics sites, as well as professional reviews and consumer reports.
Summary: I broke my garmin 350 and researched all over the internet for another one within my budget of $120-$150 and found the 265t to be the best one in this price range. I bought it mainly due to its lifetime traffic feature.
Summary: I wasn't looking for a GPS but when my car went into the shop and I was left to navigate New York, Long Island, and Northern NJ on my own I headed straight for the GPS reviews. This was well reviewed so I bought it on Amazon for a good price figuring it would be adequate until I got my car back.
Summary: I really liked the Garmin 265. It worked fine during my travel in many cities in USA. It is fast to get synchronization with the satellites and easy to manage. If you decided to buy it I recommend you to get the free upgrade of the Map in Garmin Web page before start using it.
Summary: This was the first product purchase that I have had a issue with. When I received the unit, I noticed the screen was a bit discolored. Amazon was so easy to deal with! They sent me an advance replacement, arranged for return shipping... no problems! Now that I have the new unit, I love it.
Excellent portable GPS; 5th star for the Amazon price

Summary: The Garmin Nuvi 265T (with discounts offered when we bought it) is a great value, and offers all the essentials for a basic, truly portable, GPS. The bonus of prepaid lifetime access to basic traffic alerts is a welcome extra.
