nuvi 275T 3.5" Auto GPS Navigation Unit (Manufacturer Reconditioned)

Get lots of feaures and maps to keep your travels stress-free with the transatlantic nuvi 275T. It takes you there with preloaded maps for both North America and Europe and turn-by-turn directions that call out streets by name. The 275T comes with lifetime traffic and hands-free calling to simplify 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
nuvi 275T'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 for both North America and Europe, over 6 million points of interest (POIs), 2-D or 3-D maps and smooth map redraw rates 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 275T 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 275T 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 275T while staying focused on the road. Simply dial numbers with nüvi'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 275T'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 275T 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. nuvi 275T 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 pictures from Garmin Connect Photos and navigate to them. The 275T is compatible with optional enhanced MSN® Direct content (subscription and receiver required) and our 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.

Comments about Garmin Garmin nuvi 275T 3.5" Auto GPS Navigator (Manufacturer Reconditioned):

I bought this specifically for my European trip and it worked great...for the most part. With the refurbished version, when I went online to register my project and get my free 60-day map update, I saw that it was already taking into account the previous user, so that time had expired. I may be able to get it through customer service. Without that, some of the streets in the area were missing which was frustrating because I knew they were the quickest ways. It also took us on a very long "scenic route" on our way from Tuscany to Rome. Can't say I regret it though.
Don't get me wrong, I still thought of it as a life saver. It correctly and easily found parking areas in the places I wanted. It also redirected me when I missed a turn, which was helpful.
One thing I thought was interesting was these Point of Interest you can download from various websites. It was a bit of a hastle to load them and I had mixed results as far as success in them actually working. I do have every In-N-Out tagged now because of it :)

I bought this for a 4 week vacation in Europe. It worked fine for the first 3 days and then stopped functioning. I needed to buy a new gps (TomTom) there that unfortunately only has Europe maps so is of no use to me at home.
