The Garmin nüvi 275T is a 3.5″ touch-screen navigator designed to appeal to trans-Atlantic travelers, with pre-loaded maps of the U.S., Canada and Europe. It is one of the second-generation nuvi 2×5 series models; I dubbed the first generation the “best entry level GPS on the market.”
This new series adds a couple of important mid-line features though — lifetime traffic and Bluetooth for hands-free cell phone use.
I wrote extensively about the nuvi 2x5T series features in my hands on review of the nuvi 265WT. Rather than repeat all the details here, I’m going to refer you there for more information on the series, including lots of screen shots.
The next model down in terms of trans-Atlantic navigators is the nuvi 270, which drops many of the features found on the 275T, including text-to-speech. On the 275T, this means that you’ll hear “drive one-half mile, then turn left on Oak Street,” rather than just “drive one-half mile, then turn left,” which is what you’ll get on the nuvi 270. For a more detailed look at the differences between these and all the models in the nuvi series, check out my Garmin nuvi comparison chart.
