Not for Pedestrians in France and Switzerland

  • Summary: I retired a couple years ago as a commercial pilot who dealt with GPS's on a daily basis and have a factory installed unit in my Acura TL. I bought this unit to use as a pedestrian sight-seeing in France and Switzerland.

Don't expect up-to-date maps - expect to pay to update them!

  • Summary: I just bought a Garmin Nuvi 270, with US and Europe maps (I'm going to be traveling in Europe soon). When I registered the device, I was informed that both maps needed to be updated, and I could update either of them for free, but not both.

Uninformed

  • Summary: This GPS will get you to where you are going, but this was the first one i have bought so i didn't know what i was looking for. I have used a friend's Street Pilot exclusively up until this one so that is what i judged it on. It does not pronounce the street names and I like that feature.

Don't buy a Nuvi

Robert, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought a Nuvi 270 for a trip to Italy and brought my 4 year old Magellan Roadmate 700 as a backup. The Magellan took 1 -3 minutes to find satellites. The Nuvi 3 -15 minutes. Accuracy and ease of input was far better with the Magellan.
