Summary: After a very favorable experience with a Garmin Nuvi that I purchased about three years ago, I bought a Garmin 265WT as a gift for my wife in February 2011. What a disappointment. It's not very intuitive, and it doesn't announce street names as I was led to believe. On top of that, it was used fewer than half a dozen times before it failed in June 2011 leaving us stranded in New Jersey. Turned the GPS off when we stopped for lunch.
Summary: I have had very good experience with factory refurbished items but not this time. My GPS is not getting the satellites and its current position is in Chicago. I tryed to use it in my recent trip to San Jose, San Francisco, Los Angeles and Las Vegas and it was impossible. I am returning it to Amazon and buy a new one.
Summary: This is the worst GPS I've ever used. EVER. I got one for my birthday and thought it'd be fantastic since I am a college student who commutes and also spends a great deal of time traveling through unfamiliar areas. First off, this GPS takes forever to pick up a satellite signal. And that's if you're lucky and the GPS FINDS the location you're looking for! Secondly, it will NEVER take you through the fastest route, even if you have that setting enabled.
Summary: I received the GPS unit in the mail. I ordered the refurbished model thinking that it was a good deal. When I opened the box I discovered Amazon had sent me the wrong mount. The mount didn't fit the GPS which made it a bit useless since there is no way to put it on the windscreen without a mount that actually fits the GPS. Surely they should check to make sure they have the right parts in the box.
Summary: Greetings, This is to inform you that the Garmin GPS 265W model has a fault.(Garmin nüvi 265W 4.3-Inch Widescreen Bluetooth Portable GPS Navigator (without Traffic). The same will not start. Please I would like to know what is the procedure for returning the product.
Summary: Got my 1st 265WT GPS from Amazon and it works amaxingly for me. Sing praises about it and gave it to a friend who is in need. Confidently bought the 2nd GPS(same model) but it was a nightmare!! A TOTAL NIGHTMARE!! Took it fresh from the box and went out of town on a flight. To my horror, the GPS cant even power up even with charger plugged on it. In a new place and out of town what you happen to me? You got it right, im stuck in a new place with no WORKING GPS....
Summary: Received it today and it is dead out of the box and yes, I fully charged it! I've bought "refurbished" items before without problems, this is kind of telling me they didn't fix the original problem with this unit. I ordered a replacement to be sent so I will see how it goes with the next one. Now wishing I just ordered a new one, but Refurbished is supposed to mean as good as new or almost new, right?! I'll update on GPS #2...
Summary: I send my Garmin to my friend in a hotel in USA and the merchandise lates 2 days and nobody is there. I read in "tracking your merchandise"- return to seller - but my account was charged and I d'ont know how to have my money back. Please someone help me.
