Works great so I ordered another one

  • Summary: My Garmin nüvi 265W lasted for 5 years. It did everything it needed to do and got me where I wanted to go. I invested in lifetime maps and I've never been disappointed. I like my Garmin nüvi 265W so much I just ordered a replacement for just $30! Very happy customer.

Excellent (after the update)

  • Summary: I tried using this right out of the box but it wouldn't acquire the signal from the GPS satellite. I updated the software from Garmin's website and it worked right away. It gives excellent directions and the interface is easy to use. I was skeptical because this is an older unit and this is the first GPS navigation device I have bought, but this is great!

It was good until it went bad.

  • Summary: I have funny feeling of its slowing down being my fault, that being said, I would reccomend it for a little more experienced drivers.
  • Pros: Loud and clear voice. Easy to see, clear images.
  • Cons: Took forever to turn on and forever to re-route.

Garmin GPS 265W

eNVy the unenviable, Amazon
21 February 2013
  • Summary: It was a replacement for my portable 260W which was lost/stolen. To begin with the Model Numbers were very confusing to me and I couldn't find any details of the different models from the Garmin's Website. The seller had inserted a note stating that I could download the instructions for use from the Garmin's website which was not of any help to me. It so happened that I had the instruction manual of the lost/stolen model and that was of great help.

  • Summary: Well, this is my firts GPS and I've been using it in Venezuela for 2 years, It's has been and excelent device, It always take me to the place that I need to go. I've found so many great places that I did not know before, with this device you can go anywhere if you have the right maps installed. You can set it for spanish language at tools menu. I've noticed that are new garmin devices, fasters, with a better touch screen and new functions.

Garmin nuvi 265w 4.3 inch wide screen

Ruth M. Thom "RT", Amazon

  • Summary: This is a "basic" garmin. We have a Street Pilot 2720 - its no match compared to this model, but it will get you to where you are going! Great buy for the price! But make sure you look for "features", if you've had a high end model like a Street Pilot (paid $1200 for it years ago) you will be dissapointed. But it does the job of getting you to your destination! Great buy for the money.

Big Disappointment

  • Summary: An expensive paperweight. Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on you again.
  • Pros: If the manufacturer won't support the product, it makes no difference what the "Pros" are.
  • Cons: Dead after only four months. Warranty denied.

Garmin 265W w/Bluetooth

unicorn, Amazon
17 April 2011
  • Summary: I prefer over previous Tom Tom unit...better voice and logic redirections. Bluetooth is great in today's 'hands free' Legislative environmemnt...which was major reason I bought it...almost as cheap as a stand alone Bluetooth visor unit. I am going to Europe with it and have loaded in the data for that too.

Great basic navigation system

J. W. Conner, Amazon
15 April 2011
  • Summary: For the price, this unit cannot be beat. For less than $100.00, you get a GPS that is easy to use. Looking for a device that would just give me directions, I was impressed about the Bluetooth feature. The screen resolution is clear, even at night. The auto adjustment is a nice feature of this unit. The roads are well-marked, and the voice is nice and clear. While the Bluetooth feature is nice, I have heard complaints from those I have called that my voice sounds tinny.

Good cheap GPS unit...

  • Summary: Great unit for $100... the only issue is the keyboard layout and the amount of steps it takes to program an address.
