The main menu is clearly arranged with two large buttons for the input of destination and the map display and can be operated intuitively.

In the lower screen area of the 4.3 inch wide display are the rather less frequently used volume control and the “Accessories”-button, behind which all options and tools of mobile navigation systems.

The Garmin via Bluetooth interface is coupled with a cell phone, the “Telephone” menu item also appears in the main menu. In this, the settings of the hands-free function can be made then.

Sound equipment

However you should prefer to leave hands-free then but a “real” free intercom – the nuvi makes telephoning on the basis of intelligibility mauen simply no fun.

Lot of fun makes for voice control: is enabled and disabled the feature by using a practical steering wheel remote control. A control look in the upper right corner of the screen shows whether the voice control is active.

With this you can take the complete Navi control, of the destination entry up to the route settings. The speech recognition almost always immediately worked on shakedown.

The other attributes of the facilities comply with the current standard with TMC receiver, FM transmitter, theft protection, picture viewer and MP3 player loose. A letter suppression is still missing, but every corner of Europe to the internal memory is stored.

Show me the way

On the way Nüvis 865Tpro cards showing clear, like when some jerk leagues. With POI, Lane, junction zoom and signposts, moves the Garmin on the amount of time and also boasts a good understandable speech.

Grammatical gaffes like “Turn left at the Heslacher tunnel” are acceptable with a smile. In practical use on federal roads and highways to the 865Tpro navigate confidently; the views of the display was itself largely.

Only known stumbled a little the Nuvi and directed clumsy through residential areas, although clear roads would have been a better alternative.

Summary: A high-quality GPS from well-known blacksmith.
