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.
