Garmin nuvi 265T review


UPDATE: The nuvi 2×5 series has been officially discontinued. For current recommendations, see our auto GPS buyers guide.

It includes pre-loaded maps of the U.S. and Canada, has a 3.5″ wide touch-screen and comes with text-to-speech, so you’ll hear “drive one-half mile, then turn left on Oak Street,” rather than just “drive one-half mile, then turn left.”
