In addition, nüvi 265WT accepts custom points of interest such as named businesses and traffic blackspots, with proximity alerts to warn you of upcoming POIs as you approach.

nüvi 265WT contains Garmin’s unique, advanced driver safety system with daily updates. Travel with the confidence you are driving safely, responsibly and legally and don’t be fooled by false alerts. The system uses a patented ‘corridor’ technique of speed camera validation so you only get alerts relevant to cameras on your route. nüvi also displays speed limits for greater awareness.

nüvi 265WT also comes with Garmin Lock™, our inventive anti-theft protection system that uses GPS technology to safeguard the sat-nav by locking to a secure location of your choice. Just return to the location to unlock.

Enhanced Navigation

Redefine your sightseeing with photo navigation and get there in a snap! To plan trips to landmarks and attractions simply and easily before you set off, choose and save location-tagged photographs from Google™ Panoramio on your nüvi in a wish-list of places to visit. Then, at your leisure, select a photo destination for turn-by-turn directions straight to the scene.

Other built-in travel tools include a JPEG picture viewer, world travel clock with time zones, a currency and measurement converter, calculator and more.

Smart Traffic Avoidance

nüvi 265WT comes with Garmin’s smart traffic avoidance to help you stay aware of jams, accidents and roadworks on your route, with dependable delay information. Garmin’s distinctive, streaming traffic service uses live traffic data from cameras located every 2 mi (3.22 km) along every major route to help you avoid the tailbacks.

Traffic information always is a toggle away. Just flick between your main navigation screen and congestion information while Garmin’s expert navigation works with the traffic alerts to report on the tailbacks while suggesting a better route around the delay.
