  • Summary: I've owned the Garmin Nuvi 855 for about a month now. I had an extra 12 volt outlet installed under the driver-side dashboard in my car so I could plug in and conceal the factory Garmin power cable that came with the unit. As a result, I use the GPS every day, every time I get in my car.

  • Summary: The 855 works as you might expect. Maps on mine are not up to date. I ran through the update but they still are not current with my area. The internal speaker volume is a little soft and the FM xmtr needs to be very close to the local radio antenna.

  • Summary: Great product for the price, but downloading the new maps takes a long time. We haven't been able to complete the download yet, although we have tried several times. I think we may have to reset our computer's sleep timer so it stops freezing up while we are downloading.

  • Summary: I like this GPS for the hands-free feature. It works well 85% of the time. On occasion I need to repeat commands, but most of the time the GPS gets it right. Walmart offered a good price for this unit.
