Bad Suction Cup on Nuvi 255W-Here we go again!

  • Summary: Garmin makes it intentionally difficult to get warranty service by forcing you to use their complicated registry service on line. Garmin can't service what they sell anymore.
  • Pros: The unit is compact and easy to read.
  • Cons: Don't buy Garmin's GPS products-customer service is horrible phone support is non-existent.

Garmin Nuvi 255W 4.3" GPS Navigation with Text to Speech

Alem, pricebat.ca

  • Excerpt: This GPS will lead to much more frustration and pressure than convenience. What boggles my mind is this model is no additional enhanced than the older models- its the identical terrible slow laggy UI with just about every essential press. The keyboard is really awful to variety on and it LAGS like hell. Also the huge screen bevel makes it not possible to press certain letters or backspace without repositioning your hand awkwardly.

Garmin Nuvi 255W 4.3" GPS Navigation with Text to Speech

  • Excerpt: I can't consider of any...truly. Ridiculous routes, incorrect routes and occasionally literally just going in circles. Maps are NOT correct, in spite of what I've read in other reviews. Slow to reposition vehicle soon after turns, frequently so slow that you locate yourself in the wrong lane if your in a series of rapid turns. I applied a TomTom One in europe for four years devoid of a single issue.

Garmin Nuvi 255W 4.3" GPS Navigation with Text to Speech

  • Excerpt: Price tag at the time. This thing can't discover itself on the dash. I took a trip that I printed out a Google Map for and it was straight interstate all of the way. McComb, MS to Caryville, TN. This unit told me to take a suitable turn at Just about every exit. Each and every exit that I didn't take it would "recalculate route" as it need to have, but I can't remember how several instances that it locked up and I had to restart it.

  • Excerpt: None. Unit was DOA correct out of the box. The manual supplied with the unit was for a different model. Could not find model 255w on the Garmin web web page. I also could not come across any troubleshooting info in the manual or on the internet site for this issue. Garmin says I have to pay for shipping to have this unit fixed or replaced. No way! I received this unit as an xmas gift.

Garmin 255W

  • Summary: I bought this because it had European maps and it worked in Slovenia and UK no problem. It has a relativity recent basemap, however with the map upgrade which you no doubt will want to do, then there is a big problem as there is not enough memory to download the most recent full new European map. You can do UK, western Europe, Eastern Europe but not the lot.
