Buyer beware

Mary13, Amazon
27 September 2010
  • Summary: I ordered this in August 2010, however the maps are at least a year old. Roads that have had their route #s changed over a year ago are still listed with their old #s, making for a very confusing trip. Exit #s are also out of date.

Stutters, totally unuseable. 3 RMAs later got a 265wt.

Ghezbora, Amazon

  • Summary: First unit stuttered so much it was barely useable. Maps, directions, etc. were all fine, but the voice directions were so broken it was pathetic. The 2nd and 3rd 255ws did the exact same thing. I finally convinced Garmin it was broken on the 3rd RMA and they sent me a 265wt instead. That one works.

Beware

J. Bender, Amazon
2 January 2010
  • Summary: Beware, I have a recently purchased Garmin nuvi 255W. It has worked well for local driving giving accurate directions for roads and streets. On a long trip ( 1000 miles ) it has given misleading instructions taking me off a direct highway and off in the wrong direction.

Nice features. TERRIBLE, HORRID touch screen.

Mark B, Amazon
18 August 2009
  • Summary: UPDATE: The touchscreen has been absolutely terrible. The accuracy is poor, and pressure applied has to be heavy (sometimes) to get a response. The latest Garmin update (Fall 2010) to fix the touchscreen issue has actually made it noticeabley worse.

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

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

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

Kaden, pricebat.ca
20 August 2011
  • 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.
