Garmin Nuvi 265WT Review

12 March 2009
  • Conclusion: Having mounted more than few ultra-high-end GPS units in our vehicles only to find that only half the features really made any sense to use on a day-to-day basis, Garmin’s Nuvi 265WT represents the very best that would be left standing after we trimmed the fat. You won’t find oddities like half-baked media players, voice destination entry, or backup cameras that other companies have tried to shoehorn into top-shelf units, but you will find all the basics, backed up by a...
  • Pros: Free lifetime traffic; solid mount; quality Bluetooth speakerphone; intuitive interface; quick to find location; quality text-to-speech
  • Cons: Garmin not forthcoming about built-in ads; POI searches can be slow; somewhat bland styling

Garmin nuvi 265WT Review

8 November 2008
  • Summary: Garmin's nuvi 265WT builds on the success of previous nuvi 200 models, adding free real-time traffic, Bluetooth for hands-free calling, GPS hotfix for faster position acquisition, terrain maps, and an improved map screen. A year ago this nuvi would have cost three times as much, and been considered Garmin's top of the line GPS.
  • Pros: Easy to use, well designed, user interface, Preloaded Maps of North America + Hawaii + Puerto Rico, Speed limit information is displayed on the map screen (where available), Improved traffic reporting options now include traffic map, traffic search, and traffic on route, Automatic map zooming adjusts the map zoom level based on your speed and the current maneuver, Upcoming turn indicator displays direction of next turn, Well designed map screen is easy to understand, ...
  • Cons: Screen not as bright as more expensive nuvi models, No way to avoid a specific road from a planned route, Can't change information displayed in the data field on the map (more expensive nuvi 7x5 models let you choose between arrival time, distance, c, Lackluster Bluetooth hands-free speakerphone call quality, Searching POI database by spelling a business name is slow, Cannot sort Favorites alphabetically; saved addresses always listed in order of closeness to your cur...

  • Excerpt: The Garmin nüvi 265WT is one of the second-generation models in the nuvi 2×5 series, which I dubbed the “ best entry level GPS on the market.” This series offers more mid-line features though; in addition to everything that made the 2×5 series a hit, the 265WT adds lifetime traffic and Bluetooth for hands-free cell phone use. It includes pre-loaded maps of the U.S.

  • Excerpt: Garmin has a nice widescreen entry with the Nuvi 265WT, that offers a lot of capability in a lower tier model within reach for most GPS buyers. The Nuvi 265WT was in August 2008, along with the Nuvi 265T and Nuvi 275T. The Nuvi 265WT offers Text to Speech and with a departure from the older 3-month free trial and a monthly subscription after that. This is that is served over the FM airwaves.

Selkeästi hyvä

  • Conclusion: Laite on helppokäyttöinen ja nopea, ja sen akkukesto mahdollistaa laitteen käytön myös silloin, kun laturia ei ole saatavilla tai laitetta halutaan käyttää auton ulkopuolella. Garmin kipusi tällä kertaa testivoittajaksi tasaisten ominaisuuk ...
  • Pros: Selkeys, Akkukesto, Nopeus
  • Cons: Ääniopastus
