I got my Garmin Nuvi for Christmas of 2010. MY parents got it for me for less than $100 at best buy. The second I opened the box I was shocked at how slim the device was and at how stylish it looked.

One of the outstanding features of the Garmin nuvi 255w is the clarity of the voice response.  While the directions given are not always the most direct, the unit is capable of redirecting the user to the destination.  The written instructions provided with the unit leaves much to be...

This is a good basic GPS.  It doesn't have some of the bells and whistles of more expensive models, but it gets you where you need to go (usually).  I have only had one time where the directions were inaccurate, and that time they were very off and I still don't know why.  If you...

Good if you live in the lower 48

bysnowmusher Apr 10, 2010
Helpful? 1 Helpfuls Was this review helpful?
Pros Simple Setup
Cons Inaccurate
Recommended it? No

One thing people don't tell us up here in Alaska is that because of the tilt of the Earth, most GPS systems are off because of the angling of the satellite they use.  That doesnt help when trying to figure out roads that are close by each other.  It works great in the lower 48 though.
