Not the greatest Garmin GPS

  • Summary: I like Garmin GPSs, but this particular model occasionally "hangs" requiring me to remove the battery to reboot (dangerous/unacceptable).
  • Pros: Garmin makes good GPS, and the maps & navigation are good.
  • Cons: This particular unit occasionally "hangs", requiring battery removal to reboot.

What a dissapointment - 10 reasons why to avoid this one.

  • Summary: I purchased the Garmin nuvi 855 to replace my nuvi 350. What a mistake that has turned out to be. This unit has been a disaster from the start. Here is a list of the issues I've had with this unit: 1) Very slow to acquire the satellite. It has taken as long as 10 minutes to get a signal.

  • Summary: If you have the money to buy a brand new model do it. To start with this GPS was not recognizable to my pc, after over 2 hours of jumping through hoops, I reached no satisfaction(with regards to interfacing with my pc). I could not update maps, because My pc could not detect the GPS unit.

Don't Buy This Freeze Machine!!!

Zeydeh "semperveritas", Amazon
13 September 2010
  • Summary: I purchased this device thinking that the speech recognition would improve safety and convenience. Wrong, wrong wrong! The 855 totally freezes very frequently. And the only way to unfreeze it is to dismount it, open the battery cover and remove the battery, replace the battery, restart the device...

Nuvi 855 Sucks

ProAudio, Amazon
21 August 2010
  • Summary: I purchased this gadget in preparation to a 1000 mile journey to Ohio and back. Stunning disappointment from the very first day. This unit froze up on me no less than 4 times in the first day of use. No excuse for that!

  • Summary: I was looking forward to getting this GPS but when I received it, it had the wrong adaptor to plug it into the car. I had to take it to Walmart locally and trade for a higher priced one because they didn't carry this kind.

  • Summary: Very hard to use the voice activated portion it's like talking on the phone to a computer can be just as aggravating. To check the mileage to destination you need to exit. For some reason Garmin thought it would be better to measure your speed I have a digital readout of my speed.

  • Summary: I got the GPS in the mail and was pretty excited while setting it up, until i noticed the power adapter for the car was the wrong size, this pretty much makes this thing useless for long trips.
