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.
Summary: I purchased this for a birthday present, my friend has just enjoyed it, I have 2 of these and they are awesome, easy to use, even though sometimes may be out the way, mostly more important of all you will not get lost.
Summary: Wonderful product, works fine. Nice big screen, I am glad I purchased it. Its a great purchase would recommend it to anyone who is in need of a gps. Very simple to use, just type in the address and it will take you their to the door step.
Summary: I bought it "used" but there is no sign that it was ever used! Couple of features that I found very helpful, 1. Speed Limit display (most of the time it gets that right! and we don't need to search for speed limit when driving in unfamiliar area....very helpful) 2.
Summary: I purchased this used from ebay. The display had a crack in it, but it didn't affect the touch features in any way. I updated the maps and used it to navigate Orlando. The device did well, and only had me take one or two weird detours. It found any restaurant, grocery store or mall name I typed in, so their map updates seemed comprehensive enough (both for Orlando, and Salt Lake City, where I live). Just know that to purchase the map updates is expensive.
Summary: As soon as I turned the GPS on the screen popped up I just started playing around with it and did not even need instructions to figure it out. I took the Garmin nuvi 255WT for a test drive and it worked perfectly. I had it set for a certain direction but took a slightly different coarse and the system actually re-adjusted itself and used that new direction. And voice can be heard very clearly and loudly if you need that. I love it.
I absolutely would recommend this GPS for anyone .

Summary: I love this tiny little GPS receiver. It is so easy to use and very self-explainatory. In compare to other GPS receivers, this is far easier and portable. I love it so much and even bought my husband one as well. I have used quite a few different GPS receivers before, and even tried Verizon navigator. This is by far the best. It always show me the shortest distance to get to wherever I want, love love love it.
