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.
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.
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.
Summary: Map needs more frequent update but overall is good.Get the big picture and big features for a small price with nüvi 265WT. This widescreen navigator takes you there with preloaded maps and turn-by-turn directions that call out streets by name. It adds a crisp, widescreen display to the nüvi 265T and comes with lifetime traffic and hands-free calling to simplify life on the go.
Summary: The instruction manual was very simple but a bit too simple, it does not go into details of how to use everything; however, the GPS itself is very user friendly. The features are good, the signal strength is great eventhough I first powered on at home inside of a CBS building...everything work well. Garmin included first software update for free with you registering the unit. I love this GPS!
Summary: My Garmin Nuvi 265WT is a refurbished unit which means I bought it for almost half of the regular retail price with all the usual warranties provided to new ones. After trying my unit a few times, the only thing I wish it had was points of interest displayed on the map as you go down the road. They didn't want to clutter their mapping system so all you get is your location and street names displayed.
