Use Garmin GPS, but don't forget to ask locals for direction.

Summary: Good device. But struggles in Pedestrian mode in Europe. Map is necessary to compliment GPS. Selection of routes (or logic in device) is not always the best. There is nothing that can replace human brane.
Summary: I bought this product in USA for my stay in Europe. I have been living in Germany for a little while now and so far, so good. I was somewhat annoyed when this asked me to make a right turn into a potato farm when I entered the address of my office here.
Summary: We bought this unit to use on our two week Europe trip to Germany, Austria and Switzerland. We rented (and returned )a car in Stuttgart Germany. We had no previous GPS experience before this trip. Our car (a Mercedes) came with a built in GPS but we quickly abandoned it for the Garmin.
Summary: As this unit came preloaded with USA and European maps, I purchased the Garmin Nuvi 275T specifically for a 10 day long trip to Spain, during which I would drive over 1200 miles. Overall this GPS unit made life significantly easier than reading maps.

Summary: Very good GPS. Has both U.S. and European maps plus FM traffic. A bit small, but generally big enough for viewing. Since the traffic receiver is in the power line, you have to have that hanging, which is a bit sloppy. Wish they would keep it in the unit itself and just run off the battery.
Summary: I have just received this and updated the maps. I had to choose between updating the European or N.American maps - the process was clear and went smoothly. I think it would be reasonable to allow purchaser to update both maps, but it was clearly stated on the website that only one would be free and...
Summary: I have been operating this using the unit for about 10 months now. Its been a companion on many trips. This is what I like about the unit: - The US maps are accurate, they have taken me to my destination 100% of the time. This is my number 1 requirement and the unit executes on it well.
