Excerpt: I wanted a larger screen and got it. I wanted to be able to download all saved addresses from old Nuvi and got it. I wanted an easier format in entering and saving new addresses, changing volume and other items and haven't found them yet. This Nuvi is not intuitive, has a lot of new symbols which I find confusing, and has a poor internal help function. However, if you go online and download the manual, a lot of searching will probably answer your questions.
Excerpt: Sadly, I though that with the latest updates will be good to go. To my surprice the maps has not been up to date with the lates changes in downtown Columbus OH, it gave me wrong direction in a few occasion, not fun to have to go around in order to go where I needed to. Hope soon Garmin will do the updates.
Excerpt: After connecting the new Garmin 2555LMT to my computer and downloading all the updates I took my first test drive to check it out. I drove about 20 miles to a nearby town using a route I've driven for years. On the way to town I took a secondary road instead of the Interstate route the GPS suggested. After that, EVERY TURN THE GPS GAVE ME WAS WRONG!
Pros: Acquires Satellites Quickly, Compact, Easy To Read, Easy To Set Up
Excerpt: I like to be sure I'm on the right road after a turn. This is not clearly indicated. My first trip with the the GPS had it refuse to come back on, when we stopped for lunch, when I was 10 mi from my intermediate desination. This was in the middle of a 2000 mi trip. A son helped me getting it working later. Lucky I had a road map for this mishap!
Pros: Easy Menus, Easy To Read, Easy To Set Up, Light Adjustment Great
For the price paid, it is OK, but for more features you must upgrade to the current model

Summary: This was an end of model purchase. Garmin does not make this model anymore. It is OK and has many enhancements from previous interfaces, but it does not support live services (if you are looking for that), or streaming from your smartphone.
Excerpt: Dificult to navigate through the many menus to start a short trip. I found some "look up" search locations bad or outdated information. I was sent to a large empty lot, instead of a business that had moved over 8 yeaars earlier. Traffic re-rout options popup and are confusing while driving. Some features are better than other brand GPS unit. Over the speed limit warning is just a change of the driving speed color, no audible warning.
Pros: Acquires Satellites Quickly, Compact, Large Screen
Summary: Unit only worked for a few hours before dying. (worked nicely while it did...) Note: despite what user manual implies, this model does not have Bluetooth. Returned unit with no problems, although I didn't receive the free shipping label until a day after I shipped it (and paid for it). I got the 2595 instead (with bluetooth). fantastic.
