Summary: I purchased this product after I was bored with TomTom GPS. The good thing about this product is that It has wide screen and light weight. Its initial set up is easy and it's ready to go right out of box. It has auto off function, which turns the unit off once you turn off the car.
Summary: This is good neat product. The maps update is available online for three months only. Some of the reduced speed limits are not updated even after latest map update. I like the auto shut off and night mode. Bluetoothe works with Iphone and very quick to setup.
Summary: This Garmin sat-nav has more than a few failings; one of the most annoying being that it wont navigate to a city or large town unless you can enter a road/street and house number; if you don't have those forget it. If you do have those it probably won't recognise them.
Summary: Comes with many functions but you can not use them all together due to slow processor. - Set the map details in most, turn on blue tooth, turn on mileage report...then the system will mess up with the blue tooth function. - slow on the touch screen as well, drive me crazy when in a hurry.
Summary: There are no lane indication displays which on previous sat navs have been exceedingly helpful. When driving in Holland and Germany recently the female voice pronunciation has occasionally been nothing short of ridiculous.
Summary: This device works fine and will get you where you need to go. Please be aware of the following shortcomings, though: 1) maps. Be careful of what maps are provided with the device. We bought ours in the States and as soon as we crossed the border to Canada it got completely lost and had no clue.
Summary: the life traffic update is not that accurate, I had the updated OS version I used this GPS to drive from Vancouver Airport using the fastest path feature and it leaded me to a 30 Km longer route, that most of it has limited speeds to 45 Km/Hr , there was many urban and streets that were not updated...
Summary: I purchased the Garmin 265WT because I was going to be travelling to Western Canada and the U.S. this winter, and the Bluetooth feature appealed to me. My disappointment came when I downloaded my once only free maps, and then discovered they were not up to date.
