Garmin Nuvi 265WT GPS Navigation System, Model 0100057510

Get the big picture and big features for a small price with nüvi 265WT. This widescreen navigator takes you there with preloaded maps and turn-by-turn directions that call out streets by name. It adds a crisp, widescreen display to the nüvi 265T and comes with lifetime traffic and hands-free calling to simplify life on the go. Like the rest of the nüvi 205-series, this portable navigator is priced right and ultra-easy to use.

Features:

With nüvi 265WT's widescreen display, you'll always get the big picture. View map detail, driving directions, photos and more in bright, brilliant color. Its sunlight-readable, 4.3-inch display is easy to read — from any direction.

Get Turn-by-Turn Directions
nüvi 265WT's intuitive interface greets you with two simple questions: "Where to?" and "View Map." Touch the color screen to easily look up addresses and services and get voice-prompted, turn-by-turn directions that speak street names to your destination. It comes preloaded with detailed City Navigator® NT street maps, over 6 million points of interest (POIs), 2-D or 3-D maps and smooth map updates as you navigate. Its digital elevation maps show you shaded contours at higher zoom levels, giving you a big picture of the surrounding terrain. In addition, nüvi 265WT accepts custom points of interest (POIs), such as school zones and safety cameras and lets you set proximity alerts to warn you of upcoming POIs. With HotFix™ satellite prediction, nüvi calculates your position faster to get you there quicker.

Make Hands-free Calls
For hands-free calling, nüvi 265WT integrates Bluetooth® wireless technology with a built-in microphone and speaker. Just pair it with your compatible Bluetooth phone and talk hands-free through the 265WT while staying focused on the road. Simply dial numbers with nüvi's touchscreen keypad to make a call. To answer calls, just tap the screen and speak into its built-in microphone. Enjoy convenient one-touch dialing for contacts and points of interest.

Avoid Traffic Tie-ups
Steer clear of traffic with nüvi 265WT's integrated FM traffic receiver. Receive alerts about traffic delays and road construction that lie ahead on your route. Next, simply touch nüvi's screen to view traffic details or detour around the problem area.

Take It With You
Like the rest of the nüvi 205-series, nüvi 265WT sports a sleek, slim design and fits comfortably in your pocket or purse. Its rechargeable lithium-ion battery makes it convenient for navigation by car or foot. With its "Where Am I?" emergency locator, you always know your location. Simply tap the screen to get your exact latitude and longitude coordinates, the nearest address and intersection, and the closest hospitals, police stations and fuel stations.

Go Beyond Navigation
Navigation is just the beginning. nüvi 265WT includes many travel tools including JPEG picture viewer, world travel clock, automatic time zone transition, currency converter, unit converter, calculator and more. With photo navigation, you can download Google® Panoramio™ pictures via our Garmin Connect™ Photos website and navigate to them. The 265WT is compatible with optional enhanced MSN® Direct content (subscription and receiver required) and our free Garmin Garage where you can download animated vehicles that show your location on the map. It also comes with Garmin Lock™, an anti-theft feature. Enhance your travel experience with optional plug-in SD™ cards such as Garmin Travel Guides for detailed data on attractions.

If you have to get from Point A to Point B and you like spoken directions with street names, this device will more than meet your needs. It's clearly best on longer trips where you don't really know the best route. The free lifetime traffic information is a big differentiator with other similar products and can be helpful if you are uncertain about slowdowns along your route.

Around town, the directions tend to put you on the main thoroughfares, typically streets with lots of cars and traffic signals. If you have your own favorite routes and know your way around a city, then you are likely to consistently override the guidance of the GPS system. For me, the most common word spoken by the device is "recalculating", which happens every time that I deviate from the recommended route.

What I would like, of course, is the ability to "teach" the device my preferred routes from home to work or to my son's home, and then pull those up to check for traffic when I am setting out on one of those trips. But that feature is for a future generation of GPS systems, not for this one.

I connected the device to my Mac and downloaded updates and Mac applications for this device. There are also Windows versions of those applications, but Garmin gets extra points in my book for their strong support of MacOS. Whatever your platform, you should do these updates.

I've got a pretty good sense of direction and have managed to drive for more than 40 years without a GPS, so I could undoubtedly live with online mapping and the 511 phone/online service. The value for me is in the traffic information.

The map database outside major urban areas is very poor. Ten mile stretches of ten year old bypasses do not exist. It's routing, both fastest and shortest, are generally poor. The speaker is very susceptible to heat. Voices are garbled when unit becomes warm - which is just about every time there is sun on the windshield and the car isn't cooled below 75 degrees F. Software occasionally locks up when Bluetooth is searching for a connection. Garmin could have done a lot better job on this unit. They really need to re-think the source they're using for maps, work on their operating software and look at their speaker hardware.

    Comments about Garmin Nuvi 265WT GPS Navigation System:

    This is so simple to use and simple to understand even for those up-in-years. The activated speech is great as is the warning about heavy traffic up ahead. I highly recommend this product! This is the 4th one I've purchased - 265WT - one for myself, one for my daugher, one for a personal friend and one for my granddaughter. My other granddaughter will be going to college in August and I will certainly obtain the 5th one for her!

          I used this for the first time on my trip from NYC to CT. The volume is not really that loud although its already 100% While going to LGA, it says exit 13 when there is no exit 13. It has 13A,B & C. So you really have to look at the arrow.

            Purchased this for my wife who uses it for her work. She loves it and finds it very easy to use. I own a TomTom and think that although the audio might be better on the TomTom, the controls on this are easier to use and the directions more accurate. The live traffic capability of this unit also adds to the value of this GPS. If you are on the fence about this one, just get it. You will be glad you did.
