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.
Summary: I bought this refurb cheaper than just buying a map for my existing garmin. I think garmin should sell maps cheaper. Back to this review. The unit works good here in the US. Calif. Traffic does not work in my county, ventura, when it says it is suppose to.
Summary: I bought this refurbished item because of price. It was less than 1/2 the cost of a new one. I wanted this model because it had maps of Europe and we will be driving in Europe this summer. I have used this item locally and it works well. Looking forward to it diecting us on our Vacation!
Summary: I took two GPS(s) to Italy for my trip from Venice, Florence,Tuscanny, and Rome. Besides the Garmin 275T I also took the TomTom 930 Live. These devices were both up-to-date with all patches and upgrades. I found there was not one review of which GPS was best for Italy.
Works OK but maps are not as good as my old Magellan
17 June 2009
Summary: I have an old Magellan 800. This Nuvi 275 is faster, better on batteries and smaller, BUT the maps are simply not very good. It often drives me 1/4 mile from destination and some parts of the maps don't even show shopping malls decades old.
Summary: Nice and compact and can fit nicely in a shirt or jacket pocket. I used the unit in Fla. and found that the unit would often say turn left on a street when the correct way was to turn right. I relied more on the map and the arrows for directions then the voice commands.
