Comments about Garmin Garmin Nuvi 265T, Portable GPS Car Navigator with 3.5" TFT Display, Preloaded City Navigator NT for North America:

This little unit is the best GPS I've owned to date. The processing hardware has been upgraded vs. previous generation units (Nuvi270 or Magellan 3225). The unit not only locks faster, but redraws and recalculates noticeably faster. One can notice the unit tracking the car direction even during a U-turn!

The FM traffic monitor works well. The "free" lifetime traffic is funded by occasional small unobtrusive ads from local businesses which I don't mind. (The ads are small pop-ups on the top or bottom of the screen.) Note that Ads only run if the free traffic is enabled. The FM traffic antenna is integrated into the beefy power cord. The unit itself is quite small although the power cord is a bit bulky.

This is a fairly basic GPS so there is not a lot of menus or customization. There's enough routing options to meet my needs.

Overall, I'm happy with the unit.

Comments about Garmin Garmin Nuvi 265T, Portable GPS Car Navigator with 3.5" TFT Display, Preloaded City Navigator NT for North America:

Great GPS! Compact, lightweight device with Free Traffic, great directions routing and POI database. May want the 265WT if you prefer 4.3" widescreen vs the 3.5" on this one, but this one is $50 less. Highly recommended!
