Summary: I like these because of the small profile . They slide easily into a pocket . I ride a bicycle a lot for exercise and these can fit nicely on the handle bars , and with its bicycle mode it works great . It also has a pedestrian mode . The display is very good , and easy to see . The one thing I think could be better is the size of the internal storage . Its pretty small . If you just want a nice GPS to use occasionally this may be for you .
Summary: The Garmin was very good and very easy to use. I have a newer Garmin now, and one of the drawbacks of this one was that you couldn't adjust the brightness through the power on slider button like you can with newer models. Also, the "don't operate while moving" flasher is annoying, even if in the best intentions. What if you have a passenger operating the Garmin?
Summary: It's a 2010 so maps are not updated. Loses satellite easily and alerts on turns are delayed so I end up missing a turn. Still useful on short trips though so works for me although I use my phone's GPS more than I use the nuvi. I don't like the cord since it's now rigid and no longer flexible.
WHAT A PIECE OF JUNK WOULD NEVER BUY FROM THIS SELLER AGAIN
9 October 2012
Summary: I BOUGHT THE GARMIN GPS SO ON OUR TRIPS TO CANADA WE COULD USE IT. ALSO WANTED THE BLUETOOTH I HAD USED BLUETOOTH ON GARMIN GPS BEFORE THIS UNIT IS IMPOSABLE TO CONECT TO BLUETOOTH. THE GPS USED ONCE TO TRY ON DRIVE FROM HOME TO WORK IT WORKED THEN, TRYED ON A TRIP WILL NOT CONNECT TO SATALITE. THIS UNIT IS A BEFECTIVE PIECE OF JUNK MAYBE SOME OF THEM WORK NOT THIS ONE. TRYED GETTING HELP FROM SELLER HE HAS NEVER RESPONED.
Summary: Bought a Garmin Nuvi 265WT back in 10/09. Been using it since. I went to Lubbock Texas and was looking for a Chevron gas station and it was recently closed, not bad. The next time it did this i was near Alpine or Grand Junction, Colorado, I was searching for a Chevron and it lead me to a house in the middle of no where. Regular updates are very necessary and mine was up to date at the time.
Summary: I STRONGLY RECOMMEND BUYING ONE OF THESE GPS UNITS 1. YOU CAN USE IT IN ANY CAR 2. YOU CAN WALK AROUND TOWN OR GO CAMPING AND USE IT 3. THESE DAYS WITH THE POLICE SETTING UP SPEED TRAPS TO GENERATE REVENUE .I FIND MOST SPEEDOMETERS ARE OFF AND IF YOU SWAP OUT STOCK TIRES FOR CUSTOM WHEELS WITH DIFFERENT SIZE TIRES YOUR SPEEDOMETER WILL BE IN ACCURATE .
Works great, but should have free lifetime maps to be perfect

Summary: if it came with lifetime free map updates, it would be the best in class. having to pay for updates or a replacement GPS every couple of years makes it a major added expense. If you don't, don't rely on accurate information as businesses come and go and gas stations, hotel brands, etc change names and brands frequently. Other than those issues, the 265WT is a good cheaper GPS.
