Summary: Maps are outdated. Newer models have unlimited map updates. Works good though for local places. . . As long as you can enter the address. I used my phone to find addresses then entered into GPS.
Worked good for someone who does not depend on technology

Summary: This GPS was good to my standard. I used it before and liked the easiness of use. I cautioned you about the map which is old. If your city is remodeled a lot, it may cause you some headache to navigate.
Summary: I bought this as a gift for my son. He hasn't used it yet. The seller shipped it fast and I saved over $100. I know as I purchased one about 2 years ago and paid around $155.00 for it. It was in great condition and I followed instructions on how to reset it.
Summary: This is my 3rd of essentially the same model (one had bluetooth, which I never use). Have 'em now in every car in the family. Its functionality is pretty basic, and it doesn't have some of the bells and whistles of a newer Garmin I tried (see my review of the 1350LMT), but it works very well.
I would recommend this product, the price is fantastic.

Summary: This Nuvi was an excellent price, the display is very sharp and easy to see. The features are great and so is the ease of use. The only thing that I have found at fault is when I set it up to go somewhere it took me an old way instead of the updated shorter way to my location.
This Garmin nuvi 255WT GPS is a very useful instrument to own and use.

Summary: I am a senior driver and do not drive very much at all and therefore find this GPS extremely useful when going to unfamiliar places, which is very seldom. Otherwise I keep it in my glove compartment out of sight. This is my first GPS, easy to operate, and adequate for my purposes.
