    Question Garmin Nuvi 265W/WT GPS Purchsed and ready to go to India

    Hi All,

    I have purchased a Garmin Nuvi 265W/WT GPS and I am taking it to India for a couple of months. Is it possible that I can load India maps in it and use it so that I don't have to worry about of asking people over there for routes. Please let me know of any link from which I can download the latest maps for India and any link for guides to unlock the Garmin Nuvi 265W/WT GPS system.

    Also I am looking to buy a latest GPS system for my cousin in India (below $150), please advice on which system will be best suited for India.

    I apologize if this is a repeat post, as I was unable to find any specific topic for this system.

    Thanks and Regards,
    Sudharsan

    Thanks for the quick reply. I am going to drive there in India and use the unit to navigate, hope it will be possible. Will figure out a way to charge the unit. Please let me know if this unit will navigate me while driving.

    yes, you can use the mapmyindia maps on the garmin. in fact the 265wt (or the W - traffic option doesnt work in India) is a good piece of hardware. you could buy the same for your cousin. i got a good deal on amazon
