Perfect for me

  • Summary: I used to get lost every single time I went anywhere. Not anymore. I love my little GPS. It's the perfect size and a great value. You can continue to update the maps so you dont need to buy a new system. I've had mine for 4 or 5 years and it's still going strong.

Love Garmin

  • Summary: Have yet to use the maps in NZ but have every expectation they will be the usual Garmin quality. Cannot imagine now what exploring a new country would be like without a good GPS to guide you, increases confidence, and therefore enjoyment, greatly. Great price from Amazon and prompt delivery

Bad Workmen Blaming their Tools?

Amazon
21 October 2012
  • Summary: Sorry Guys & Gals, but reading some of the negative reviews made me feel I should spring to the defence of Garmin and it's mostly elegant and efficient range of navigators. Recurring themes seems to be that reviewers are blaming the map makers; blaming the garmin unit; blaming both of those; blaming...

Great because it is small

George Schuler, Amazon

  • Summary: The smaller size of the GPs is actually more helpful as I can easily slide it into my pocket when walking/biking around in new cities. I think wider size GPS just shows you the redundant streets on the sides which are anyways not useful.

  • Summary: After hours of online research, I bought the Garmin Nuvi 255 in May 2009 and loved it. Bought another 255 a month later for my father, and he still loves it. (Actually, I bought him one that turned out to be defective, but Amazon replaced it without any hassel.

Love it

Aaron T., Newegg

  • Summary: This is my very first GPS and I have to say I love it. I've only drove around town with it, basically just playing and getting a feel for it. I was surprised at how extremely accurate the road maps were on the go.
  • Pros: Extremely accurate maps. Great satellite signal. Points of Interest are extremely handy and fun. Has lots great features and you can't go wrong with unlimited map updates. Nice loud clear voice that tells you where to go and keeps you updated so you don't accidentally miss your turn. Very easy to...
  • Cons: Nothing major that I can think of. You do have to download Garmin's addons for your browser and follow their instructions, all of which were incredibly simple and don't seem to interfere with regular browsing (using Firefox). The map update process for my slow internet took about 3 hours, a sacri...

Love It!

Anonymous, Newegg
15 February 2011
  • Summary: I caught this on the last day of a sale. I'm also new to using GPS, but it was time to get rid of the paper maps. Always read the reviews from others. I was quite ready to spend a couple of hundred dollars for a "better" unit, but after reading the reviews and the problems with the more expensive...
  • Pros: Acquired satellites quickly. Accurate. Loud enough to be heard. Easy to operate. Excellent suction cup holds firmly. I like that the car icon moves steadily along the road on the map. I saw some on display in stores that had the icon jumping at intervals. This unit gives good warnings of an upcom...
  • Cons: None that I can see for the price.
