Summary: Bought this before the Mediterranean cruise and was able to update the map from Garmin's site. However, it never worked during our trip in Spain, France, Italy and Croatia. Only successfully acquired satellite twice, one at the barcelona port and one at Florence after left under the sun for over 30 minutes. Signal was so weak and got lost in minutes. It never worked when it's turned on at any street during walking tour.
Summary: Good product, incomplete description, good value. I ordered this as it had USA, Canadian, and European maps. It navigates very well. One thing I do frequently is to route plan ahead of time (e.g., plan a European route while in the US). There is no way to do this in any usable way. All of other GPS units I have used in the past (Michelin, Tom Tom, etc.) include this feature. The lack of this feature forced me to return the unit.
Summary: I purchased this unit based on its features, but after less than a week the voice prompts quit, and all attempts to load latest maps and updates did nothing. Then I started getting Chinese characters in the middle of my saved destinations, including my own house! Then I realized the battery only held a charge for 15 minutes or less..... I probably just got a bad unit, but nonetheless returned the unit and will not buy another of the same model from Garmin.
Summary: I bought this Nuvi 275T as I have used Nuvi 350 extensively for past 3 years and never had any issues with it however I had given that to my brother thinking I would now upgrade to a higher Garmin version but within three days of using nuvi 275T I am disappointed with this device..I find the nuvi 275t satellite detection not as good as my nuvi 350 but the biggest disappointment was when I tested nuvi 275t to find my job location but surprisingly it didn't figured that...
Cons: Acquires Satellites Slowly, Inaccurate, Poor voice and pronouncia, Short Battery Life, Stupid Routing
Summary: GPS won't lock sometimes, sometimes it thinks I'm a few miles away on a different street going a different direction, sometimes it thinks I'm driving through the country where no roads exist. When stopping at a light, it will spin and recalculate. It will recalculate for no reason sometimes. The spec are good on this GPS but reality is different. NOT recommended.
