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.
Summary: this is the best GPS i think for the money.even though its an older model .I bought it because i can have one in each of my cars .and not have to transferr from one car to another.Also buy a spare battery they are cheap and easy to replace.This also has a 4 hour battery life..i dont like a builtin GPS as if i borrowed or rented a car i can use it in the car of the moment .also i can carry it in my pocket if im walking and i have a home charger for it also.
Summary: Easy to use, good features and great price!!! The bluetooth works great and it links to the phone's phone book, which makes it possible to dial directly from the GPS!!! The voice can be set to mane different languages and the route options can lead you through faster time or shorter distance by using or avoiding highways and toll-roads!!!
Summary: I have spent the last 3 years trying to follow printed directions to get to and from places in Los Angeles. I can't tell you how many times I was hopelessly lost. This Garmin is wonderful. It is more sophisticated than the Magellan I had a few years ago. The Garmin takes traffic conditions into account and will reroute over surface streets if the freeways are jammed. I even prefer this GPS over the one installed in my Porsche.
Summary: Garmin produces the top of line gps units. They are very users friendly and their all round fuctions are very simple. The quality and workmanship are top notch. Knowing many people that have purchased the competion and after seeing mine their have since sold theirs and purchased a Garmin. I would reccomend these units to anyone and not to waste time on othes.
Great item for the money, does most anything I need

Summary: I bought the Garmin Nuvi 265WT to replace an old TomTom. For the price I really like this. Easy to use and set up I really like the blue tooth connection. If you are driving and you are looking for something in the search menue, you can call with a push of a button.
Summary: Easily the best value of any GPS unit I've come across. Packed with features, it has everything that I was looking for. 4.3" widescreen, real time traffic updates free for life, and the bluetooth handsfree technology for your cell phone. I looked at the Insignia model from Best Buy which had the same features but only gave the traffic updates free for 6 months. With this Garmin model you never pay for them.
