Summary: I bought the Nuvi275t prior to a trip through Spain. I'm surprised to read the favorable reviews. I gave it a few test trips in the US before the trip, and it seemed ok. Once in Spain, though, we found it to be worse than useless. On the open road, it worked acceptably.
Summary: Recently, I purchased a new Garmin Nuvi 275T, paying the extra cost for the 275T because of the map of Europe and Canada. I bought it for the specific purpose of taking it to Italy to help our group find our way in Rome, Naples and other cities.
Summary: Once again, customer support is below any reasonable expectations. Convenience of their policy is always on their side. I like Garmin product, but I would not advise anyone consider buying it for a long term.
