Garmin Nuvi 270 GPS Review



The Garmin nuvi 270 features a sleek, slim design with amazing auto routing capabilities that will get you where you are going using the most efficient route possible. It comes complete with an easy to use touchscreen display with turn by turn directions. The Garmin nuvi 270 comes loaded with high detailed maps for North America (US, Canada and Puerto Rico) and Europe. This machine is so easy to use that you become an expert user even without reading the user manual.

If you are looking for a GPS system to use in the US and you are planning to travel to Europe, this machine is probably the best system for the money. You will get a quality Garmin machine that has European maps at a fraction of the cost.
