This review is from: Garmin nüvi 265W 4.3-Inch Widescreen Bluetooth Portable GPS Navigator (without Traffic) (Electronics)The last GPS I got I couldn’t even figure out how to turn on…they have really come a long way as far as ease-of-use. This one…opened the box, easily assembled it onto the base with no directions, plugged it in, turned it on (okay, I had to go to directions for that, but they are very clear), followed all the steps (very intuitive – it walks you through it) and there I was – it had me pinpointed to my exact position in the parking lot – wow. So I plugged in an address, and yes, I’m old-school – I was shocked with this relatively inexpensive machine started TAlKING to me, nice voice too – very clear directions, tells you exactly how far to go before turning. This is the new model, which is why I got it, but it seems to have all the best features discussed in reviews of older models (I read a lot of reviews). Again, I’m not proficient in technology (my 11 year old niece has to help me with my phone and forget an I-Pod) but from my point of view this has all that a typical driver would need – I even think my even less-technically proficient parents would like it and I plan to try it out on them.
Update after a week: The screen shows several things I hadn’t noticed, like your speed, the speed limit for the road you are on (some roads, not all roads), the expected time that you will get to the destination, the direction (North, South, East, West) and how far it is in miles. It’s not distracting, as these notations are on the perimeter. The voice directions are very good, a warning prior to coming to a turn and then a ‘turn left on ____ St.’ when you get there and how far it is, as in ‘turn left in point-three miles’. And it tells you which side of the street (left or right) your final destination is on, which is very helpful on a busy street.
Also nice is the ‘Map’ feature: It’s simply a map of where you are, showing an automobile icon that moves as you go along…it shows landmarks, street names along with the speed limit and your speed so you don’t have to look down at the speedometer and guess if you’re going the speed limit and what it is. This can be used even when you don’t have a destination plugged in. Plus, the machine saves addresses so you just have to tap on an address from a list of places you’ve been, instead of retyping it. It also saves the cities, so you can pull it down from a menu instead of typing it in…so I would consider it generally ‘user-friendly’.
I got the portable Garmin Friction Mount to hold it in place (it’s a beanbag type thing) which is really great, as you can easily stow it on the floor so no one decides to ‘borrow it’ if they see it on the dashboard. Overall, couldn’t be more pleased…this one doesn’t have ‘traffic alerts’, so if you want ‘traffic’ there is another Garmin model that would be more suitable.
