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. If I did not have a separate map, I might have been going around in circles! Having said that, it works great in cities; finding parking etc is not a problem at all.
Garmin nuvi 275T refurb: outstanding value; a few flaws

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. Would be great with that. Still quite good as is. FM traffic is better than what I had with the $2,000 built-in unit. Doesn't always pick the best routes. No big deal.
Summary: This Garmin was definitely a lot cheaper on Walmart's website than anywhere else I looked. I had bought a regular GPS with only USA maps at Office Depot and was going to have to install the European maps for $149. Buying this GPS for only $30 more with Europe maps already installed definitely saved me some money. On our second trip, though, the GPS's sound gave us some real issues. Every time we pushed a button, it made a strange loud static-y sound.
