Great Little GPS

bigemann48, Ebay
4 March 2014
  • 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 .

Good GPS for the money. Tons of features. Easy to use. Only one minor issue

  • Summary: I have been using various GPS units for going on 20 years now. Garmin has always been my favorite, and this one is no exception. It has a ton of useful features, traffic sensing/avoiding, easy to use destination searching, bluetooth linking to phone (which makes the calling a hotel/restaurant you just searched for easy), even adding 3rd party POI (Points of Interest) is easy.

Garmin Nuvi 265WT is a unit that will get you where you want to go.

  • Summary: The Garmin Nuvi 265WT is one of the best GPS units out there. It is accurate and very helpful when needing to find a restaurant, gas station or other location needed. I have 2 of these one in each vehicle and I never want to be without it. The only main drawback to Garmin GPS units in general is the expense required to purchase lifetime maps, and they are non-transferable to a new owner or to another unit if yours stops working.

"This electronic gadget is great overall."

  • Pros: large type, good visuals, easy to use, nice icons
  • Cons: it's a drag when the (tinny) voice doesn't recalculate faster than you're driving which causes you to miss the exit or street once the voice comes back on. you would think that they could correct that time drag when you mess up or when the directions hav

Nice little GPS

wv-hayseed, Ebay

  • Summary: I like the compact size and the price! The best thing about it is the QWERTY keyboard. I have a TomTom with and abcd keyboard and it takes forever for me to type in the information. With this one it's a snap. It is a little awkward to get use to in the menus after using TomTom. I haven't used all the features yet but it looks promising with the bluetooth.

"Overall Good but missing features like Lane Assist"

trigger8man, CNET
5 January 2011
  • Pros: 1. Bluetooth 2. Mapping software is okay. Just a few A few annoying things so far, see cons 3. You can split the GPS signal and connect to your laptop(GPS gate required)
  • Cons: 1. Major problems with finding address numbers on Hwy 7 (in Markham, Ontario, Canada). 2. No lane Assist 3. Putting in a new location is a bit painful 4. Using a normal U S B cable is possible. 5. Mounting unit it comes with is pretty cheesy

"Just purchased, but love it so far!!"

President of the Firm, CNET
26 December 2010
  • Pros: I've only owned the unit one day...and only owned a cheap Magellan before, but I love it. The traffic feature warned me of a huge back-up coming home today, and I was glad for the warning. We were able to get off and take smaller roads home.
  • Cons: It DID take us on a somewhat circuitous route to a house in downtown Toronto. The CVP would have been much faster (I think)....so, maybe I had it set for Shortest Distance; I'll give Garmin the benefit of the doubt.

Not bad for a low end GPS

cardinalx3, Ebay
8 December 2010
  • Summary: Nice features for the price (got it for $79.95). I like the Bluetooth cell phone connection that allows hands-free conversations and also facilitates one-touch dialing of any location or point-of-interest. Also like the feature which allows you to enter your own voice as one of the languages and therefore inject a little comedy into the directions.
