Summary: This unit does not display all of the streets. I have passed streets that I know have been there for many years and they don't show up. The car display takes a long time to turn corners and take exits and tells you it's recalculating even when you go the way it tells you to go. VERY Confusing!
"Slow-to-refresh display; Garmin won't transfer maps"
28 November 2010
Pros: Cheap. Bluetooth OK but a pain to dig through menus if used with more than 1 phone, sometimes freezes.
Cons: Display refreshes are slow - chunky and late - you've passed a street before it caches up. Garmin's purchased map policies are TERRIBLE. GPSs get lost or stolen: Say you purchase Europe map. It's registered online. Can u transfer to new Garmin? NO!
Summary: I was disappointed but not surprised with this product.

I asked to speak to an American and was told there was no way to transfer the call, that I would have to keep calling back until an American answered the phone.

Summary: I purchased this GPS as a replacement for a StreetPilot I2 which was stolen from my car. I have also previously used a Nuvi 260 as well as a Garmin 38 for my boat. Compared to the StreetPilot I find the 265T mapping difficult to follow. In addit...
