Summary: Mine burned out after less than a year. I never left it in the sun when the car wasn't operating, but after a long trip in air conditioned car, it froze up and now doesn't work at all and there is no warranty on it. Waste of money.
Summary: Utter piece of of junk and the most expensive piece of junk I have bought.
Pros: This is great when it is working which is rarely.
Cons: The unit would lock up periodically, then shut down without any way to turn it on again. There is only one button on the top to press and nothing else. If this does not work you are out of luck. It is impossible to remove and recharge battery any other way that through USB cord.
Summary: Unit worked intermittently, often shutting down or freezing and had to be reset. Downloading patches from the website, resetting, and clearing did not help. Technical support responded by saying, "If the problem continues give it a few weeks to see if there is another update for that unit.
Summary: Bought this product since its family was rated best product in consumer report. What a disappointment - got corrupted voice after 2 weeks of sample use. Suggested by Garmin support to update software and voice.
Summary: I have owned several GPS now, and this one is by far the worst. To be clear, it performs all of the required functions. It provides a route to the destination, turn by turn directions, etc. The problem with this specific model is that the routing methods are garbage. You have four options.
Summary: This product worked great... for only 3 months. Afterward, it started having issues with locating satellites and finding directions. It would sometimes take 10-15 minutes to find directions, making this GPS useless.
Summary: I have had 2 TomToms, and I switched to Garmin because I wanted a better bluetooth functionality (TomTom's wasn't great). I don't know if I got used to TomTom giving directions and am completely unable to follow Garmin directions, but I have yet to have a successful trip with this device.
Summary: We are very disappointed with this product. For navigation, it has consistently led us on crazy routes (yes we have tried switching between fastest and shortest) taking us through neighborhoods when we could have stayed on the main roads.
Summary: I purchased the 265wt primarily for the free traffic reports and that feature has been disappointing. There are false positive and false negatives. Hence the GPS's traffic data has been unreliable. At best, it works well about half the time. I guess it's better than nothing?
