Useless around eastern Massachusetts

Stefan Kenehan Letizia, Amazon
29 May 2009
  • Summary: I'm not sure how this navigates around the rest of the united states, but in Boston and its surrounding 'burbs, it is laughably unhelpful. My job occasionally requires me to travel throughout this area by car, so this is verily a problem. I often have better luck by printing out google maps.

Horrible sound quality

Mark Talluto, Amazon
29 May 2009
  • Summary: First off, the sound is horrible on this model. At volumes of 60% or above, there is so much distortion that the voices sound like they are coming from a blown speaker. Its tolerable but HIGHLY annoying. If you research this product you'll find many others that have a big complaint with the sound.

Inferior to a GPS-equipped phone and Google Maps

N.. Martin, Amazon

  • Summary: I've watched from the sidelines as the GPS products have proliferated, but with the current price competition I have finally entered the fray. I'm bemused and disappointed. The 255w has a nice appearance and useful features, and according to reviews it is one of the best GPS units on the market.

I like everything but the routes

WCGardener, Amazon
29 May 2009
  • Summary: I ordered this GPS because my previous GPS, by Magellan, suddenly was unable to find a satellite after less than 2 years. This unit does 2 things well that the MAgellan didn't do at all or did poorly: as long as I keep it plugged in, it finds a satellite immediately, instead of taking 5 or 6 minutes...

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.

Not So Good

Clarsach, Amazon
22 February 2012
  • Summary: The unit as supplied does not have enough memory to hold Europe-wide maps, so I bought a suitable SD card. This worked OK, though downloading refreshed maps took hours till Garmin replaced their PC software last year.

BUYER BEWARE!

Mr. R. Morgan, Amazon
16 April 2011
  • Summary: This overhauled product appears to be as good as buying the new version,which you are lead to believe by some of the customer feedback, BUT it is supplied with maps more than two years out of date - THE GARMIN FREE UPDATE IS NOT AVAILABLE.

Infuriating

Caranca1, Amazon
21 December 2010
  • Summary: When this SatNav works well it is great - BUT - so often it doesn't!! I have sent this back to Garmin under guarantee and got a replacement - - eventually - - and felt as if I had gone through a CRB check in the process. It has been recalled for a battery change.
