Garmin nuvi 265T Portable Bluetooth Automotive GPS System with Lifetime Traffic ON SALE WHILE SUPPLIES LAST
Packed with features at a price that fits any budget, the Garmin nuvi 265T takes you there with preloaded maps and turn-by-turn directions that call out streets by name. It adds lifetime traffic and hands-free calling to the popular nuvi 255, simplifying life on the go. Like the rest of the nuvi 205-series, this portable navigator is priced right and ultra-easy to use.
Get Turn-by-Turn Directions
nüvi 265T's intuitive interface greets you with two simple questions: "Where to?" and "View Map." Touch the color screen to easily look up addresses and services and get voice-prompted, turn-by-turn directions that speak street names to your destination. It comes preloaded with detailed City Navigator NT street maps of the United States and Canada, over 6 million points of interest (POIs), 2-D or 3-D maps and smooth map updates as you navigate. Its digital elevation maps show you shaded contours at higher zoom levels, giving you a big picture of the surrounding terrain. In addition, nuvi 265T accepts custom points of interest (POIs), such as school zones and safety cameras, and lets you set proximity alerts to warn you of upcoming POIs. With HotFix satellite prediction, nuvi calculates your position faster to get you there quicker.
Make Hands-free Calls
For hands-free calling, nuvi 265T integrates Bluetooth wireless technology with a built-in microphone and speaker. Just pair it with your compatible Bluetooth phone and talk hands-free through the 265T while staying focused on the road. Simply dial numbers with nuvi's touchscreen keypad to make a call. To answer calls, just tap the screen and speak into its built-in microphone. Enjoy convenient one-touch dialing for contacts and points of interest.
Avoid Traffic Tie-ups
Steer clear of traffic with nuvi 265T's integrated FM traffic receiver. Receive alerts about traffic delays and road construction that lie ahead on your route. Next, simply touch nuvi's screen to view traffic details or detour around the problem area.
Take It With You
Like the rest of the nuvi 205-series, nuvi 265T sports a sleek, slim design and fits comfortably in your pocket or purse. Its rechargeable lithium-ion battery makes it convenient for navigation by car or foot. With its "Where Am I?" emergency locator, you always know your location. Simply tap the screen to get your exact latitude and longitude coordinates, the nearest address and intersection, and the closest hospitals, police stations and fuel stations.
Go Beyond Navigation
Navigation is just the beginning. The nuvi 265T includes many travel tools including JPEG picture viewer, world travel clock, automatic time zone transition, currency converter, unit converter, calculator and more. With photo navigation, you can download Google Panoramio pictures via the Garmin Connect Photos website and navigate to them. The 265T is compatible with optional enhanced MSN Direct content and free Garmin Garage where you can download animated vehicles that show your location on the map. It also comes with Garmin Lock, an anti-theft feature. Enhance your travel experience with optional plug-in microSD cards such as Garmin Travel Guides for detailed data on attractions.

Garmin nuvi 205 Series Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What is the nuvi 205 series?
A: The Garmin nuvi 205 series currently consists of nuvi models 205, 205W, 255, 255W, 265T, 265WT, and 275T. It is Garmin's entry-level offering and replaces the nuvi 200 series.
Q: Why is the nuvi 200 series being replaced? What's wrong with them?
A: There's no problem at all with the nuvi 200 series, and they're still a great buy! Garmin developed the 205 series to offer basic features at an entry-level price, but unlike the 200s, the 205s are upgradeable to higher-end functions such as live traffic.
Q: What's the difference in the nuvi 205 series models?
A: The nuvi 205 is the base-level unit, with a 3.5" diagonal screen, basic voice directions, and maps of the lower 48 United States pre-loaded. The nuvi 255 adds text-to-speech voice prompts (speaks street names) and maps of Canada & Alaska. Upgrade to the nuvi 265T for Bluetooth and an included FM traffic receiver; upgrate to the 275T for all that plus maps of Europe as well as North America. Add a "W" to the model name, such as the 205W, 255W and 265WT, and you've got a wide-screen unit with a 4.3" diagonal display.
Q: What options do I have for live traffic on a nuvi 205 series model?
A: The nuvi 265T, 265WT and 275T all come with an FM traffic receiver, providing real-time road alerts in major metropolitan areas throughout the United States. All nuvi 205 series models also allow the user to upgrade to the GDB 55 MSN Direct Receiver. In addition to live traffic, MSN Direct also provides enhanced content such as weather forecasts, gas prices, movie times, local events, news tickers and more. The MSN Direct receiver is an improvement on the basic receiver that comes with the 265T models.
Q: What's the difference between the nuvi 205 series and the nuvi 700 series?
A: The nuvi 700 series is Garmin's high-end offering. To illustrate the difference, we can compare a nuvi 760 to a nuvi 265WT. Both are pre-loaded with U.S. & Canada maps, give text-to-speech voice prompts, have 4.3" screens, Bluetooth, and included traffic receivers. The nuvi 760, however, also has multiple-point routing and multiple-route storage - the nuvi 265WT can only go A-to-B with one stop in between, while the nuvi 760 will allow the user to input any number of addresses, sort them, and save the trip in its memory. Thus the 760 is a better choice for real estate agents and traveling salespeople, as well as users who want more control over their routes. The nuvi 760 also has multimedia features, including an MP3 player, audio book player, FM transmitter, and headphone jack, allowing the user to listen to music or literature in the car or on foot.
