Summary: Was buying 200 series for x-mas gifts, when testing I liked so much I purchased the 855 for myself,mainly because it has a built in MP3 player that plays through your car stereo, while still geting turn by turn directions and traffic, again,all through your car stereo. It's 4.3 screen is just right, don't need to strain to see.I bought this and took a trip to Lake Placid, NY. Very accurate for ETA! I took every backroad I could find on the way home, never getting lost.
The rebuilt Garmin GPS from eBay surpassed my expectations. Great buy!

Summary: I love the Garmin GPS, I recently purchased on ebay. I bought it to replace an older model, for a recent trip to Italy. It performed flawlessly and abled me to find out of the way places that I would never have been able to find without it. I paid a fraction of the price that I would have had to for a new Garmin GPS. When I received the refurbished unit, it was packaged and appeared to be new. I couldn't be happier with this purchase.
Summary: Its an excellent item to those who travel every day, its a very good tool to find places.I love it. You can learn about others places and they location, the easy way to go there. Its easy to use and simple.
Summary: I already owned one Garmin nuvi 855, I bought this one to put on my old Harley for those long road trips. The only flaw I found is common among all GPS receivers not just the nuvi 855. That flaw became apparent on a recent trip into San Francisco, when traffic came to a stand still on the overhead freeway system the GPS device thought by my reduced speed that I was on the surface street below and gave me some crazy directions.
Summary: Garmin International's nüvi 855 is a GPS navigator and personal travel assistant featuring voice-activated navigation and lane assist with junction view. Navigate with confidence while nüvi directs you to the preferred lane while driving. Also, see realistic images of upcoming junctions where available.
Summary: I purchased this GPS for my wife who is electronically challenged. this unit was by far the best unit for her. Easy and straight forward to use. Simple set up and great features. Best buy for the buck.
Summary: First time I've written an Amazon review, but wanted to say how much I am learning to enjoy my Nuvi 855! As an analyst, I did the research, read about the pros and cons, weighed the benefits of voice recognition vs the (minimally) slower performance hits, and most of all, listened to my daughter! You see, our family drives between Orlando and Charlotte several times per year (to see the grandkids).
