As the only wide-screen model in the nuvi 2x5T series, the 265WT is sure to be popular. It is best suited for (a) those in an area served by NAVTEQ traffic and /or (b) anyone wanting a Bluetooth GPS at a reasonable price.

Great inexpensive GPS with traffic updates. The traffic updates aren't as accurate as I would like, but the simplicity and accuracy of the maps are very good. Probably the easiest GPS I have ever used.
