Garmin nuvi 2555LMT 5" GPS with Lifetime Maps and HD Traffic
If you've ever been lost in another state
You need one of these. I ordered this just prior to a trip to a state 3 states away. Never been there but ended up arriving after dark. This little machine was a life saver because it knew exactly where I was and told me how to work my way back into the hidden side streets in the small town I was in - all to get to the location I thought I had directions to. Google & Yahoo maps - MOVE OVER Garmin is the best!
The Garmin would only worked for two days and then I could not get it to turn on. I had to return it and will be purchasing a TomTom..
Worst Product Ever!!
This product is AWFUL!!!!!!! This product could not ever get me to my own home!! Never again will I purchase a Garmin product, back to Tom Tom products!!!
Garmin dont buy
This Garmin was horrible.....I bought this thinking it would guide me on vacation through part of the country, I've been been....instead it took me through all the secondary roads...If anyone has ever traveled the roads in WV.. They know what I'm writing about...I had to use my smart phone to guide me...I've sent it back...I had an older Garmin and it was 20x better..I'm sorry, I've ever sold it. Garmin has lost all credibility with me
My brother owns one of these so I hope he can set mine up; however if you are not a tech expert you can forget any help from the Garmin site, which is listed as unsafe to download from by my computer security. After an hour of frustration, I am back to square one. If I want lifetime maps, I believe I will have to pay an additional $149 according to the website. Also, these lifetime updates seem to have an expiration date on them.
My brother has a Garmin and it seemed easy to use, but it is not easy to set up. If my brother can get this sorted out, I will keep it. If not, I will have to return it. Most sites like this have chat lines for help. Garmin provides ring-around -the rosy vague and unclear instructions.
Amazed with performance
I bought the Garmin nuvi as a gift for my son as he does much traveling on his job. We both had the exposure of the GPS as we made a trip to a difficult to find address as given by internet Maps. I was amazed with the its simplicity of operation, concise routing and directions. My son is pleased with the gift.
Have used a smartphone for gps directions for the past four years. Garmin is alot better than a phone. For starters it stays in the car, it is super fast and the detour feature is worth the price alone. The garmin has saved me countless hours sitting in traffic in cities that I am not familiar with. Love this little gadget.
I have owned a few Garmins over the years but this is my favorite. I love the lane guides especially when traveling congested roads where advanced notice of which lane I need to be in is really helpful. The HD visual of the signs is great and makes it much easier to recognize exits. The congestion indicator is excellent and very accurate. The screen is large and easy to see, the power cord is long enough to reach center console outlets and the online backup/transfer software made it a snap to transfer my favorites/stored locations from another GPS.
My first Garmin was 5 years old and just stopped working, so I replaced it with this one. It is a little different from the old one, but easy to use. I had recently updated the maps on the old one just before it stopped working. I like the idea of the Lifetime Maps and HD Traffic. I also like the little beep sound when you are approaching a school zone. This one is 5". Love the larger screen!! Great purchase.
exactly what I wanted
I bought this for my roommate who is directionally challenged. She found a shorter way to work and saves on gas in process. This is my first gps unit and I'm impressed as she is. Might get one for myself someday.
This is my second one , first one I bought for me and my wife insisted on getting her a good one , so I surprised her by getting her one exactly like mine and she love it. a whole lot better than the Tom Tom she had especially with the nice features it has.
This is my second Garmin. The 1st was stolen and I missed it so much. I will use this instead of the navigation on my iphone because she talks loud and the screen is clear with visual directions. I personally just feet more comfortable with the Garmin. I've never had a loss of signal and I have had that with the phone navigation in the past. Plus the lifetime maps you can't beat.
I call mine Lulabell....she gets me every place I need to go! LOL
