Don't get fooled once so not to be fooled again!

cleanwharfrat, Ebay
10 March 2014
  • Summary: Well, the product worked great the first few times of use. Probably long enough to get me to thinking what a good,solid purchase I had made-a bit to do with luck,as we all may know. Then, ultimately, within about a month, I noticed it wasn't so steady a machine as I had thought, until one day, while jiggling it-to make it work The wire just came right off, rendering it useless.

TRYED GETTING HELP FROM SELLER HE HAS NEVER RESPONED.

  • Summary: After reading several hundred GPS reviews I concluded that the Garmin 265WT was the best unit available for what I wanted it to do, get me from point A to point B the best possible way. Walmart did its job and I got the unit in 48 hours. I charged the battery, updated the software and the maps. Then I entered point A and Point B, about 120 miles SSW from my home.

  • Summary: Unit was more than just refurbished...it was used. The unit had multiple scratches. Software jammed twice and the automatic traffic signal reception worked for one day and then stopped. I returned the unit to my local WalMart for a refund.

The Nuvi had been registered by another customer on the Friday before I purchased it online on Sunday.The Nuvi has worked well on 2 trips, but at times the road under the little blue car is not there-major roads do not show...
