Summary: I bought the Garmin Nuvi 270 for my parents. It was actually a great gift and similar to my own Nuvi 200 it is very accurate and easy to use. The touch screen is simple and easy to use even for those folks who have never had a touch screen device.
Summary: This GPS is exactly what I wanted >>> Planning a trip to Norway and needed the Europe Maps installed. Nice to have the US maps available as well. Have checked it out in the US and expect that it will work well in Norway. It is very easy to operate and seems to aquire the satelites very fast.
Summary: This model holds directional info for the US, Mexico, Canada and 30 countries in Europe. I bought it because I will be in Europe for the next 3 months and have terrible memories of being totally lost, unable to read signs, and unable to ask proper questions in small European towns. I'm counting on this GPS model to see me through.
Summary: My wife and I needed a GPS navigation system on our recent trip to Scotland. We bought the Nuvi 270 on ebay and purchased the extra Chip for Scotland/UK. The device was a life saver and cut a lot of time in driving from location to location; therefore giving us more time to see the wonderful scenery and landmarks. The Nuvi was perfect for our trip. Compact and easy to store in luggage and simple enough to use for my wife to operate as navigator.
Summary: I bought this because I hate mapquesting everywhere I have to go. In addition, gps systems are more accurate than mapquest and I can never ever ever get lost with this garmin. This was an excellent buy, I received the gps three days after I bought it, to me that is remarkable. It works perfectly and I am satisfied.
Summary: I must say that I had other GPS's and none of them were as good as this one the 270 by Garmin, I went from Milan to Modena, Malcesine, Salzburg, Prague, Zurich, Lucern and back to Milan, this GPS took me from door to door with no problems I din't had to look at the maps for anything, I place my trust into the GPS and it was worthit. I strongly recomenden, I just saw a newone by Garmin the model 275T with FM traffic advisor I think it may be a better buy.
Summary: I am thrilled with this product. It has helped me in many situations find the address I need. Just the reason for my purchase. We did a road trip to Colorado. I was able to find the Village where we stayed and friends addresses in other cities. Just for Fun, while on a hike I plugged in the name of the trail and it told me which National Park I was in and the name of the campground.
Summary: This was my first GPS, and I don't know how I survived without it! I get lost in my own neighborhood and wasted lots of money and time trying to find myself. This Garmin is very easy to use and reduces my tension tremendously. It is a terrific value.
