Summary: I need this Garmin to navigator to take me to other parts of the DC area that I was not familiar with. It was an emergency visit. This Portable GPS was just wonderful. I made a wise investment . I am telling the world this product is great.
Not only is it a Garmin but the VOLUME is extremely LOUD which is great!

Summary: This is not my first Garmin nuvi or the only Garmin that my family uses now. This Garmin was refurbished, came with lifetime updates, suction mount, car charger etc. The price was extremely reasonable. Truly a bargain if there ever was one. I have always loved the features of Garmin and if you are a Garmin fan as all of my family are, young and older, I will not bore you listing all of the features that came with this model.
Summary: I thought this unit was really good, until I went to Calgary this past week. Updated maps 2 weeks ago. Took 1/1/2 hrs. for a 30 minute drive from the airport because the unit took me round and round and through downtown. Put in another address and it wanted to take me to a city in BC. These were NOT new streets. I have a 4 year old TomTom that would get me to these addresses. No more Garmin for me.
Summary: What's not to like about the Garmin nuvi 2455LMT. The unit turns on, and immediately picks up a signal and gets you on your way. The traffic receiver alerts you and reroutes you if your route has a traffic tie up. For night navigation, the unit goes into night mode so that you don't have the annoying glare. The lifetime map upgrades is great. With how often roads, and more especially POI's, change, it's great to have a unit that keeps up with all the changes.
Summary: Positive - it doesn't tell me its re-calculating when I decide a different start than the GPS. It gets me there. Negative - totally different input sequence/than any Garmin I have owned before.
Summary: I guess it's alright - I bought it for my daughter. She likes it, but the two times I've tried to use it, it (first time) couldn't find the tire store 4 blocks away (I was testing it) with the name of the store and the approximate address; and the second time I was trying to get to Louisville, KY from Chicago, and although it had Louisville KY as the destination city, I think I got every other "Louisville" in the US EXCEPT KY.
