garmin nuvi 255w

mctavish46, Ebay
3 June 2011
  • Summary: routes well, display not as bright as one would like so difficult to see on bright sunny day, not as bright as my 250w, easy to see at night, TTS voices not clear enough especially if radio is on at same time, should be louder without speaker distortion, minor complaints can be lived with as gps does do its job well and gets you where you want to go, maps excellent

A Great "Middle of the line" GPS

Jeff Kimble, Amazon
9 April 2010
  • Summary: I bought this to replace my failing Nuvi 350 because I've always liked Garmin products and my old one was getting outdated, slow, and starting to crash. This one caught my eye because of two major features that I thought would be extremely helpful and fix two of my major complaints with the original nuvi. 1) Traffic - this is really quite lame.

Good Sat Nav let down by traffic system and EU map coverage

tallpete33, Dooyoo

  • Excerpt: I chose the 255WT after previously owning the excellent Garmin Nuvi 200W which sadly broke after being dropped on a hard floor. I decided to upgrade i.e. traffic and Euro maps. This unit is a fair improvement on the 200W, having a slightly higher res and brighter screen with more info on the main map page. It shows you your speed, ETA, direction info and on A roads and motorways it will display the speed limit.

No street names spoken

  • Excerpt: Garmin have now confirmed that the 255WT does NOT speak street names and have amended the description on their web site. If you want this feature - I did - buy another unit. Otherwise very good.

Don't buy for traffic!

Dr. Martin Kittel, Amazon
23 February 2009
  • Summary: Update on previous judgement 18 months after purchase: Traffic receiver cable plug poor and very hard to connect to my cars cigarette lighter (other plugs work fine). Navigation ok, central unit sturdy and reliable, but tom-tom is classes better in graphics and info. Hard to put roadblocks in or get alternative routes. However lightening fast! Bought this unit mainly for traffic information. FM receiver painfully slow to load information.

find my way

Guiding Light "Forest", Amazon
2 February 2009
  • Summary: This item was delivered very quickly and was good value for money. The booklets that come in many laguages with the item are very basic and not informative enough. I found that having to go on line to access the entire manual very annoying and very time consuming. Also I was very disappointed that some features that were on other products that I had seen, like voice changes, had to be done online and paid for.

faut pas être préssé avec lui

lune2miel, Ciao
28 March 2011
  • Summary: Ce GPS a effectivement 3 mode de conduite : distance la plus courte, vol d'oiseau et temps le plus court et comme le dit "batissedu59", le GPS est effectivement allergique aux grands axes. Il faut le forcer en refusant les sorties proposées pour l'obliger à rester sur l'autoroute. Je suis également amenée à imprimer un itinéraire pour ne plus me faire avoir car on en a en a sacrément marre des chemins de route encombrés qu'il nous fait prendre.
  • Pros: très simple d'utilisation, écran lisible et fonctionnalités intéressantes
  • Cons: Utilise les petits axes routiers, ne reste pas sur autoroute

SAV très décevant

koub37, Ciao
22 February 2010
  • Summary: Bonjour, Satisfait par le produit mais de grosses difficultés avec le SAV Garmin France, hotline incompétente verbalement (dialecte de cité, cela change des hotlines basées à l'étranger mais souvent compétentes) et techniquement. Un conseil, lisez impérativement les condition générale du site avant d'effectuer une mise à jour.
  • Pros: Produit robuste et ergonomique
  • Cons: SAV incompétent

Sehr launiges Navi

Gabriele Tobias, Amazon
15 November 2009
  • Summary: Für den Preis o.k.- manchmal fehlerhafte und ungenaue Navigation Wir haben uns ein Navi zugelegt, weil wir in Deutschland mit dem Auto einen längeren Urlaub unternehmen wollten in Gegenden, in denen wir noch nie gewesen sind . Zum Finden von Sehenswürdigkeiten und den kürzesten Wegen die in den Strassenkarten gerade bei kleineneren Orten nicht so gut zu erkennen sind . Dies war also der Grundgedanke.
