  • Email this page
ICON Loading...

The pocket-sized Garmin nüvi 265W gives you turn-by-turn voice directions with spoken street names and a touch-sensitive, full-color widescreen, so it’s easy to stay on course! The Li-ion battery lets you use nüvi to navigate on foot for up to 4 hours between charges, so you can let it lead the charge when you’re making sales calls, or out for a day of shopping conquest.

The unit ships with base map and preloaded street maps, and includes a huge database of Points of Interest (POI), like gas stations, restaurants, attractions and parks, and shopping. You can also use the Garmin POI Loader software (free download) to install custom POI like traffic camera locations and school zones, and then set proximity alerts to warn you when you’re approaching one.

Compact and affordable, the Garmin nüvi 265W is a slick entry into the auto GPS market with the great price!

5 out of 5 eggsVery good gps

Pros: it is intuitive, not many steps to get to what you need, easy blue tooth phone set up, it finds where you want to go by place, by name or address more accurately and easier than the $3000 gps junk that came in my 2010 honda ridgeline truck.
easy to set up. and easy to modify settings
lots of useful goodies like eco route calculates average fuel consumption carbon emissions and it teaches people how to drive save on fuel etc .

Cons: battery life is short. dont lose the power cable and dont

5 out of 5 eggsBought this for my parents

Pros: 5 stars as I gave this to my parents for Christmas and it was telling them where to go in no time. Kudos for easy setup, the packaging was fine, came with all the stuff needed.

Cons: Nothing really, for the price you cannot beat it. It does what it should.

Other Thoughts: Would probably have a better review if I used it myself but my parents are more then happy with it.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks great

Pros: 1) Upon registering received a free map update
2) Nice big screen
3) Simple to use
4) Came with all needed hardware

Cons: 1) Had an issue with it cyclicly rebooting with SD card inserted but after completing the updates and reformatting the card it works fine.

Other Thoughts: Not the fastest processor I have seen in other Garmin products that I have owned but functional. Didnt want a unit with traffic after seeing negative reviews about the Ads that come with them so this one fit the bill perfectly. Just a plain jane GPS with a very decent screen.

2 out of 5 eggsNot horrible but there is better out there.

Pros: I got this last holiday and have waited till now to post this. It works well for the most part especially in less congested areas with simple intersections. Overall its functional but not great.

Cons: It isnt very clear on complex intersections and when a turn quickly follows another turn. It is not very good in the New York Metro Area. Dont get me wrong its not horrible but it pulls you off routes which are faster and drags you through streets instead of highways. If you think this is going to help you if you get the traffic sub in NYC you may be disappointed, while its sometimes accurate, I have had it underestimate what I will run into more times than not or overestimate and reroute me unnecessarily.

1 out of 5 eggsPiece of junk

Pros: This is great when it is working which is rarely.

Cons: The unit would lock up periodically, then shut down without any way to turn it on again. There is only one button on the top to press and nothing else. If this does not work you are out of luck. It is impossible to remove and recharge battery any other way that through USB cord.

Other Thoughts: Utter piece of of junk and the most expensive piece of junk I have bought.

4 out of 5 eggsGood deal

Pros: Just arrived! It already had enough battery charge to turn right on. Before trying to acquire the GPS birds, I fully charged the Nuvi with the same wall charger as my cell phone (about 2 hours). Once charged and outside, the 265W displayed my initial position within about 45 seconds. I took a walk, and it accurately displayed my direction and speed (2.6 mph.) The wife and I ran some errands and the 265W was easy to see in bright daylight. The Bluetooth is a nice feature that will add hands-free cell phone capability to my wife's car (now required in my state if the car is moving). Initial impression very positive and Newegg made the shipping time as promised.

Cons: This unit does not come with a wall charger. Also, it only includes one free map update after registering the unit.

Other Thoughts: No accessories or included items were listed for the Nuvi 265w on the Newegg item description or on the Garmin website. In fact, the 265W comes with a car power cord and the suction cup type of windshield mount. Nice pluses; fortunately I was waiting to get a charger so did not spend any money needlessly. The power connection is via a mini-USB plug. The 265W may be a closeout or other special build; that does not bother me as it seems to do the job just fine.
