Summary: This was the first GPS I had ever purchased. After a decent amount of research on brands/models, I decided to pick up this unit. Bad move. Everything worked fine for the first few weeks, however, the FM transmitter / power cable stopped working. Not only did the traffic updates cease to show up on my unit, but the cable wouldn't even charge my unit.
Summary: This thing was defective from day one. Didn't save settings properly and reboots constantly. Useless support had me update firmware but that did not resolve the issue. Now it's going to Raytech for repair. I fully expect it to come back scratched and still broken, so I'm going to go buy a Tom-Tom.
Summary: I purchased a Garmin GPS a few years ago and it was very satisfactory. After a year or so, the battery crashed but no problem....it worked off the cigarette lighter in the truck. In 2009, I decided to upgrade my maps and purchased Map Update 2009. The update worked very well in the U.S. BUT it has distorted all roads so it looks like I'm driving off the road, and not on it. Christmas 2009, I received a Garmin Nuvi from my wife. It has been a huge disappointment !!
Summary: Bought the Garmin Nuvi 265WT a few months ago from amazon.ca. Nobody was selling it for less money. Great service! The Nuvi was a nice toy at first but showed how useless it was going to Toronto and Hamilton. Forget about MSN traffic it won't be of any use in Toronto, or Kitchener-Waterloo, or probably anywhere else outside the USA. Had I not been familiar with Toronto the Garmin Nuvi would have led me far astray in order to get to where I was going.
