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.
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!
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.
One of the best electronics devices that I've ever bought.

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.
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.
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.
Summary: It took a couple of tries in entering the addresses into the GPS as I never read manuals. Once I figured that out, it has proven to be a very useful tool. It seems to be able to keep the signal and doesn't get lost. I also purchased a bean bag mounting bracket, which I like very much as well as the case. The USB connector is the same size as my cell phone and works with the cell's 12 volt cable which has proven to be an added bonus of convenience.
