  • Summary: This is my second Garmin product and the display brightness is very poor to where I can hardly see it during daylight hours. The brightness is set to 100% but my first Garmin GPS was MUCH brighter so I'm assuming something is wrong and I'll try to exchange it when I return from vacation.

Not So Hot

jwgap, Ebay

  • Summary: First I wanted to give myself a piece of mind by giving Mom a gift of Don’t get lost. She hates Driving on highways, driving at night. And reading and map just adds more distractions for a blind women. This Unit speaks to you but from the unit only. It does not have an Fm external channel so you can hear it through your car speakers. Or a head phone jack so you can hook up through you car/truck speaker system.

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

Waldemar, pricebat.ca
2 September 2013
  • Excerpt: Garmin seems to have the ideal POI organization by category -- Tom Tom, for instance, will just list all "restaurants" alternatively of allowing you to pick "Asian" or some other category. The a single point that kept me from obtaining any Garmin model, was the truth that you cannot enter an address by Zip Code -- you have to truly enter the state and city (albeit with some help by way of preloaded state and city names). This truly boggles the thoughts.

  • Excerpt: LCD screen is a excellent sizeThe GPS quickly fits in a bag when on the road.You'll almost certainly get to your destination. 1. The suggested routes are terrible. The GPS doesn't recognize that getting off the highway and generating numerous turns will take additional time.two. The user interface is awkward. Typical commands are buried in the interface.three. The voice is absolutely terrible.

Map view freezes frequently

jm "jm685", Amazon
12 April 2010
  • Summary: Good: - Speed of satellite acquisition - Mechanical suction cup to windscreen (My TomTom falls off, the Garmin doesn't) Bad: - Software freezes routinely. The only way to get it going again is to shut down multiple times and wait - sometimes hours. I returned the first in exchange for another new one - but the second one is exactly the same. It is being returned now.

Not so impressed

Mr. T. A. Fenton "sustainable self", Amazon
6 November 2009
  • Summary: I have been using my Navman bought 3 years ago and which although an old model and without any perks, and dare I say it, absolutely rubbish when travelling in and around London, it did the job, and it found most addresses. I upgraded to the Garmin 255W after a day or two's consideration because on paper, it looked perfect.

  • Excerpt: Бока те же, что и у китайских моделей. Цена, как за бренд. Плюс нет возможности найти ответственного, так как местные дистрибуторы устроили борьбу только за продажи. Обслуживание сервисного центра по остальным вопросам - ХРОМАЕТ!
  • Pros: Первое время надежда на то что мировой бренд
  • Cons: С загрузками не согласен. Иногда тупит минут по 15, пока не найдёт спутники
