What a huge disappointment! Save your $$!

AmazonRick, Amazon

  • Summary: Having owned no less than about 20 GPS receivers -- hand-held, automotive, aviation, etc, most of them made by Garmin, I returned to Garmin once again. What a mistake. Here's a summary ...

Wrong road Nuvi

Robert W Schoenbeck, Amazon
10 January 2014
  • Summary: I like the ease of use of the garmins but have had a problem that the Nuvi series likes to take you on side roads and back streets when it should stay on the main roads , I had hoped that this problem would be corrected in this newer high end model, but is not.

Compared to Nuvi 2555

Daniel L Tully, Amazon
17 October 2013
  • Summary: Someone goofed here, and i think it was me. My Nuvi 2555 was stolen, it displayed constant traffic ahead with a simple red/green, a mute button on the main screen and great graphics. The 5557 has none of these. The traffic conditions is a 1/3 screen selected popup (same available in 2555).

Interesting enhancements but really poor traffic service and routing

D. W. Lunt, Amazon
30 July 2013
  • Summary: Note this review is for the 2557LMT. I purchased this in lieu of paying a price to upgrade maps on a Garmin 765T purchased in 2009. I thought the larger screen may be useful and I liked the idea of lifetime maps and traffic. I have used this unit for just over a month.

Not Happy...Nice size screen.

Mamacita, Amazon

  • Summary: No Garmin Lock. Cannot set home because if you do and someone steals the garmin all they have to do is hit home to find where you live. Very disappointed in this lack of feature. Garmin needs to update software to include lock. Not Happy.

Slow and doesn't work in NYC

Bill, Amazon
8 June 2013
  • Summary: This GPS is slow in responding and doesn't give enough notice for a lane change in heavy traffic. I am just about on top of my exit before this unit tells me to change lanes to exit. I have missed a few exits because of that due to traffic along side of me and I couldn't get over.

Map update just doesn't work...

Rashmi Gupta, Amazon
8 June 2013
  • Summary: Was super excited after I got it as my first GPS. Downloaded Garmin Express and successfully updated its GPS firmware. Then it showed Map update of North America (2013.40) but it won't download the update.

Newer not necessarily better

PJ, Amazon

  • Summary: I have always been a Garmin customer. Received the 2597LMT in April after my 2460 failed (under extended warranty). They made changes to the software that are not necessarily better.

Meh - not worth it.

GalePacey, Amazon
8 June 2013
  • Summary: We bought this GPS unit for an upcoming trip to Seattle. Reading all of the reviews, it seemed to be a dependable unit with up-to-date map information and easy to use. Initially it was just that, especially upon testing it in Chicago.

This GPS will not link by Bluetooth to a headset

Engine Ear, Amazon
8 June 2013
  • Summary: I selected this particular unit because it was advertised to have Bluetooth wireless communication capability. Unfortunately, the only way it links by Bluetooth is to act as a hands-off intercom TO a cell phone.
