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.
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. So I took this to europe, and just works o.k. many times I can't find satellite reception. maybe because of overcast. maybe just doesn't work as well in europe, or the part of europe i went 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. The Garmin was completely useless in Venice. It never found a statelite. Though it searched forever. The TomTom found satetilites and the location within 45 seconds.
