Summary: I hate this new search interface. you no longer enter city first like my other one (52lm) In the 52lm state is preset so I only need to use drop down of the three last cities entered to choose city or enter it then address then street. This one its only address and street.
Disappointed - Garmin Works but Lacks Capabilities of My Old Nextar (Q3-01) GPS
11 May 2015
Summary: This Garmin GPS works, however, I've gotten use to the older model (Q3-01) Nextar GPS that I've used for years and wish Garmin had the following features as my Nextar: My Nextar GPS allows me to preview the route I've entered and it would alert me that my next turn or street on the route listing is...
I'd say this GPS is a good advertisement for the maps on my cell phone

Summary: Much preferred my first Garmin Nuvi. The Jill voice on this one is very mechanical. Also, use of the GPS seemed much easier in the past when I entered the city rather than having the Nuvi search for every such address in the state in which I was traveling.
Summary: I live on one of several islands outside of Savannah, Ga proper. After I finally found someone to register and download maps I put in the address of the CPA I had an appointment with. No such map existed. I called the 800 help line and she said she also had no maps for this area.
Summary: Listening to the unit as you drive you can get confused to the directions. It says ,turn left on right 100. It reads rt as right instead of route. Also things like saint Louis it says street Louis. I guess it reads st as street.
Summary: I'm uncomfortable with the way addresses are input. Starts with the house number, then the street, then the state. My old Nuvi started with the state, the city, the street and house number. It was simpler. Also, I miss having an owner's manual in the box.
Summary: ITEM WORKs AS SHOWN IN THE GARMIN SITE. ALWAYS GO TO THE GARMIN SITE AND COMPARE MODELs before buying.THIS UNIT IS A 2011 MODEL, mine was MFG IN 2014 PER THE SERIAL NUMBER SO IT CAME WITH THE 2015 .10 MAPS PREINSTALLED.
Summary: The ad said it had bluetooth and that was one of the reasons I purchased it. When I received it I discovered no bluetooth. thought I had the wrong model so I contacted Garmin and they told me no 2555 have bluetooth capabilities.
Summary: I prefer TomTom's GUI and interface coz its more user friendly interms of options. But if someone has been using garmin for a while, they would definitely find this GPS very easy to use. BTW, hardware quality is much better with Garmin.
