Garmin nuvi 855 4.3-inch Portable GPS Navigator (Refurbished)

9michael, Overstock
2 October 2013
  • Summary: The GPS works as it should. It is a Garmin refurbished model. The only flaw so far is the some times after it has been turned off and then turned back on it changes from the voice setting to the default setting "Jill". I haven't contacted Garmin yet to see if there is a fix for this problem.

Buy it if you want voice activation.

  • Summary: The 855 has a big advantage and big disadvantage. Big Advantage: Voice activation. Commands can be spoken instead of being entered on the touch screen, so it is not necessary to stop.

A few drawbacks, but love the voice recognition featur

  • Summary: This is my second nuvi 855 as the first was recently stolen "atleast they did not think to grab the steering mount remote to activate the voice recognition feature" It has a good many features that I never utilize, but with a job that requires I need to find 5 to 7 addresses a day, it works great.

I'M LOVING IT

  • Summary: After downloading free updates (one time) from 'Garmin', the GPS functions great. Just lovely. Lane Assistant is seamless. You see every intersection, all lanes ahead, and it tells which lane to choose ahead. With my hoarse voice, I was scared it wouldn't accept my VOICE COMMANDS.

Garmin 855 personal review

  • Summary: I bought this GPS knowing that Garmin is a good brand regarding GPS-s. I didn't expected to get the satellite signal so fast, the way that you find you way around with it and how easy the menu is.

Feature Rich GPS - but it does freeze up occassionally

hfa8592, Amazon
9 August 2010
  • 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.

Garmin Nuvi 855 - Basic user

  • Summary: Coming from a built-in nav user (LandRover) there are some things that I like better on the Garmin, and of course some things that were lacking. Garmin (vs the other two top brands) has a feature I really like..

  • 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.
