  • Summary: I need a GPS to track unexpected traffic because I work 72 miles from my home. If there is a backup I need an alternative way to go. I had a TomTom but they have their live traffic updates updates through your smart phone. With the amount I drive daily I went through my data plan in less than two weeks. The cost to up data plan to cover traffic updates would buy a new GPS in about four months so I bought this Garmin.

  • Summary: Garmin 2555 lmt 5" LIFETIME MAPS AND TRAFFIC. The GPS works fine and you can update the maps,but the the TRAFFIC you must buy a special receiver cord at $69.00 and they said it still might not work. Why buy something that don't come with all the scuff and knowing it might not work. * I will just take this back and buy a cheaper one with maps no traffic.

Garmin GPS

Chauncey M., Newegg
29 December 2013
  • Pros: Noce screen size
  • Cons: The Garmin is really far behind Tom-Tom in technology. Their maps function does not desplay addresses in the trip log on the map. This function is important for trips with many stops to minimize driving time. My old Tom-Tom displayed addresses by touching the flags on the map. I thought GPS's were all faorly close in performance and bought the Garmin because it looked good and had lots if functions. I will not do that again fir sure. Only buy in a store whaer you can ...

Not an Upgrade

Kayla, Staples
5 December 2013
  • Excerpt: I upgraded from an old Garmin Nuvi (about three years old), and I was really, really surprised to find that I wanted to go straight back to the old one. This new one has some really interesting features I loved - it has the speed limit signs, the awesome "mini exit map" that shows the exact exit to take, and a more updated-looking interface. All of the data was accurate.
  • Pros: Easy To Read, Large Screen
  • Cons: Acquires Satellites Slowly, Back Address Searching, Complicated Controls

Newer not necessarily better

Mile, Staples
15 July 2013
  • Excerpt: I bought a new Garmin because my old one died ( I suspect because I did not buy map upgrades. I use it to plan my route home through freeway vs side road traffic each night. On the old Garmin there was an amber or red sign for heavy traffic . This does not occur on the latest version ( ie no traffic map option).
  • Pros: Acquires Satellites Quickly, Large Screen
  • Cons: Freeways Too Narrow, No Redamber Traffic, No Screen Lock, Traffic Colors Difficult
