  • Summary: I had good experiences with the previous two Garmin GPS products I purchased. However, this one was not corrected at whatever facility looks these over. I do not mind factory refurbished products because they generally undergo higher scrutiny or testing then a new product. Everything on the GPS worked fine except for Garmin traffic. This was the main reason I purchased this product.

  • Summary: I live in a city and wanted a GPS with a traffic function. It doesn't get very current information and had not re-routed me once.

  • Summary: The unit was a great price ($124) until I learned the FM traffic receiver cable was not included with the lifetime traffic. I had to buy one online for an additional $66 plus sales tax (in TN 9.75%). So the unit wasn't a bargain at all! I have a Garmin 2595 that I think the world of. The 2595 is a fantastic unit and the reason I bought the newer 2597 model for my wife.!

  • Summary: First of all this unit or at least the one that i got fails at any category, except to guide u from point A to point B. Well this is the main purpose of it but this simple task can be executed for much less and in many cases for free by ur smart phone. If traffic updates, bluetooth connectivity and voice commands are important for you, just look elsewhere... At the beginning i thought my accent is to blame but this dumb device does not pick native people too.

It's not reliable. It's severely outdated and potentially dangerous.

  • Summary: I was excited to receive this GPS in the mail. It was easy to set up. It is not accurate at all though. It has old listings of places and is not updated as I expected it would be even though before we used it we updated the maps. The first time we used it all went well. It seemed accurate and worked very well. We only went to one place in Las Vegas, NV from Pahrump and drove back to Pahrump. The voice activation worked well.

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. I now will only buy GPS units that are for trucks or at least have a truck setting of some type.

You need to Call Tech Support to get it out of Demo Mode - they are in hidden screens!

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). There are no dash boards available for this model, there were several available for the cheaper model.
