Summary: Awesome product. I've owned 3 Garmin's and this is by far my favorite.I'm enjoying using it and have had fun exploring it's features. I'm looking forward to my next trip to Europe so I can use the maps of Europe that are included in the 275T.
Summary: The GPS seems to work flawlessly EXCEPT it does not pick the most direct/easiest route. It had a fetish for sending me through every single village/goat path over here in Germany v. taking the autobahn. There is no way to select the quickest or most direct route and that is rapidly becoming a huge pain in my butt. I am hoping it does a better job when we move back to the States.
Use Garmin GPS, but don't forget to ask locals for direction.

Summary: Good device. But struggles in Pedestrian mode in Europe. Map is necessary to compliment GPS. Selection of routes (or logic in device) is not always the best. There is nothing that can replace human brane.
Includes map updates for both North America and Europe

Summary: Garmin nüvi 275/275T 3.5-Inch Bluetooth Portable GPS Navigator with Traffic I almost didn't buy this model because of the review that said only one update was included. Obviously this has been remedied, I was able to update both the North America and Europe maps.
Summary: I bought this product in USA for my stay in Europe. I have been living in Germany for a little while now and so far, so good. I was somewhat annoyed when this asked me to make a right turn into a potato farm when I entered the address of my office here. If I did not have a separate map, I might have been going around in circles! Having said that, it works great in cities; finding parking etc is not a problem at all.
Summary: I LOVE this Navi because of the updated Eurp maps. This thing even warns when you pass a potential radar area (even mobile radar). I live in Germany and have used it here and in the neighboring countries as well. It's awesome! Very intuitive and I highly recommend.
Summary: The review by Derrick, "Masters of Rural France," convinced me to buy the 275T for a trip to France. I am very glad I did. When we landed in Nice, I rented a car from Hertz. Before launching I fished the 275T out of my suitcase, suction cupped it to the windshield, plugged it into the cigarette lighter, and turned it on.
