The Garmin Nuvi 265WT offers integrated Bluetooth and a lifetime of free traffic alerts. The portable GPS also has a spacious touch screen and text-to-speech functionality.
We wish the audible traffic alerts and route recalculations were a little faster. Call quality was mixed.
"Despite some minor performance issues, the Garmin Nuvi 265WT is a good value GPS, offering a number of high-end features for an affordable price."

I have been using various GPS units for going on 20 years now. Garmin has always been my favorite, and this one is no exception. It has a ton of useful features, traffic sensing/avoiding, easy to use destination searching, bluetooth linking to phone (which makes the calling a hotel/restaurant you just searched for easy), even adding 3rd party POI (Points of Interest) is easy. I personally have added a 34rd party Red Light/Speed Camera warning system and all the Harley Davidson dealers in the US into the database.
My only complaint about the unit, as compared to my previous Garmin units, is with the sound. I wish they didn't take away the manual "wheel dial" to adjust the volume of the unit. You can adjust the volume, but you have to go to a specific menu and raise or lower it there. More annoying is that while the turn by turn directions, red light camera warnings, even the volume from playing an MP3 song is set perfectly, when I am talking on my phone via the bluetooth link, about 75% of the time, the volume is WAY TOO LOW (even when I have it set to 100%). I'm not sure it is the unit itself, or how it is linked to my iPhone, but my old Garmin did not have this problem, nor can I seem to resolve this issue.
