It's a few years old, but for the money, you can't beat it.

  • Summary: I needed this unit for a 1998 Lincoln Mark VIII that did not come with navigation. I love the hands free feature.

It's a keeper!

link2x9, Ebay
2 February 2012
  • 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.

Garmin nuvi 855, what's not to like.

gunplay101, Ebay
10 March 2011
  • 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.

  • Pros: Very easy to use for any tech level. The interface is user friendly.
  • Cons: Lane Assist is pretty much useless in Atlantic Canada. After a trip to Montreal, I now see it's purpose.

855 "freezing" problem finally fixed??

Jeremiah B., Newegg
9 December 2010
  • Summary: Hope this new software update solves the well-known freezing problem, and helps all the long-suffering 855 owners. When functioning properly, the 855 has to be one of the best, feature-rich devices in the Garmin automotive product line.
  • Pros: Garmin tech support says a new software update (released 12/1/10) addresses, among other things, the troublesome 855 screen-freezing problem. It is available through their downloadable WebUpdater client. Here's what the very helpful Garmin tech-support guy emailed to me yesterday: "The steps bellow will help you do a software update for your device. The software updates are free and it's important that you do this once every month or so to ensure your device continues...
  • Cons: After much research, ordered the 855 today. (Great sale price for a new 855 ... about the same as for a refurbished unit.) Will return to post "Cons" if I discover any.
