¹FREE lifetime traffic updates may not be transferred to another person or another Garmin product. Lifetime traffic extends for the useful life of your Garmin traffic receiver (as long as you own a compatible Garmin GPS) or as long as Garmin receives traffic data from its traffic supplier, whichever is shorter. A traffic receiver’s “useful life” means the period during which the receiver (a) has the required technical capabilities to utilize current traffic data service and (b) is capable of operating as intended without major repairs. Traffic content not available for all areas. See traffic coverage areas.
²If you purchase a nüMaps Lifetime subscription (sold separately or bundled together with certain GPS models), you will receive up to 4 map data updates per year, when and as such updates are made available on Garmin’s website, for 1 compatible Garmin product until your product’s useful life expires or Garmin no longer receives map data from its third party supplier, whichever is shorter. A product’s “useful life” means the period during which the product (a) has sufficient memory capacity and other required technical capabilities to utilize current map data and (b) is capable of operating as intended without major repairs. A product will be deemed to be out of service and its useful life to be ended if no updates have been downloaded for such product for a period of 24 months or more. Unless otherwise stated, the updates you receive under the subscription will be updates to the same geographic map data originally included with your Garmin product when originally purchased. In some instances, your Garmin product might not have sufficient memory remaining for you to load an update to the map data, in which case you will need to either (a) select reduced map data coverage for your updates, or (b) purchase separately a microSD™/SD™ card (if and as applicable to your Garmin product) and load all or a portion of the map data coverage for your updates to the card and insert the card into the microSD/SD card slot contained in your Garmin product. If neither of the measures in (a) or (b) can be used to address your product’s lack of sufficient remaining memory, then Garmin may conclude that the “useful life” of your product has expired. Garmin may terminate your nüMaps Lifetime subscription at any time if you violate any of the terms of this agreement or your subscription. Your nüMaps Lifetime subscription may not be transferred to another Garmin product.
Top Customer Reviews
I have to disagree with the reviewer that says it is slow to find where you are. I am a long-time Garmin user and I think it is light years faster than my old Nuvi model. Although some of the new features are a little difficult to get used to I still think this unit deserves the highest marks. The larger screen alone makes it worth an upgrade from an older unit.
It's also great to have lifetime maps and traffic upgrades. Again, that gives this model high marks. My favorite feature on the 2555 is the categorization of places you would like to go. For example, on my old unit I used to have search for and then type in "REST A" to find the next rest area on my route. With the 2555 "Rest Area" is a category and therefore only a couple of button presses away.
In summary, I am a happy consumer who is enjoying the new features that Garmin has added to it's new 2012 line of GPSs. Well worth the upgrade!
I bought this unit to replace my Garmin nuvi 205W. The Garmin 25555LMT arrived in good order a day sooner than Amazon had originally said it would. After updating the maps I took the unit out for a drive and discovered that traffic wasn't available on the unit as advertised because I didn't have the proper receiver cable (the unit told me so). The unit had the standard power cable (TA20) included in the box. I was dismayed because both the Garmin and Amazon sites stated that the necessary receiver cable was "in the box." I checked online and discovered the correct cable ( Garmin GTM 60 HD Digital Traffic Receiver) would cost me an additional $63.99!
I contacted Amazon and a very friendly and helpful customer service representative worked through the situation with me. After looking into it she refunded $63.99 to me. I was able to use the refund to purchase the correct cable which will arrive early next week.
As for the unit itself, so far, it works as advertised. It will take a little time for me to get used to the different interface, but it isn't too steep of a learning curve. I will report back in a few weeks to update this review.
Update April 23, 2014: The replacement cable arrived in good order on yesterday, April 22nd. I connected the GTM60 to the unit and took a test drive. The traffic feature works like advertised. I suspect they got confused at the factory and packed the wrong cable. Amazon made good by refunding to me the $63.99 the cable cost so I could order the right one. Bravo.
First thing, the map update was maddeningly frustrating. I first used the simple Garmin map updater that only downloaded and installed the map. After running this for 30 minutes and seeing no progress, I aborted this. I installed the Garmin Lifetime Updater, which automatically downloads maps. It took more than an hour to download the new map from the web site. I then tried to update the map. I started at 4PM, and at Midnight, it was still running, with no indication of any progress. Usually there is a progress bar, but this software just has a bar with a green light moving back and forth. This is just terrible as a user interface. I was worried about cancelling the update. I send email to product support, which promised to get back to me within 3 business days. I cancelled anyway. The tool warned that I needed to update the system software first (which I thought I had done).
Luckily, I didn't brick the device. It worked even after the abort. I needed the device for a trip, and started using the Garmin. I'm an engineer, and I found the user interface frustrating to use. I wanted to change a route to avoid certain locations. First of all, the default route showed a time of 2H 40m, while Google says it would take a more realistic 3h 15m. I used the "Detour" option, but that found another route without giving me any choices in the route. So I then tried to add a second location in a route, so I could control the route. I was unable to do this. When I wanted to add a second location, it forgot the first stop.
The Garmin site also had a software package called Basecamp for Windows. I installed this, and gloriously it also allowed you to update your device using this tool. I used this, and it updated the map, the voices, help files, etc and all in 15 minutes! Hurray!
This unit has easy to navigate screens and provides information which is easy to absorb with a quick glance. The "Lane Navigator" is one of my favorite features. It lets me know if the exit is a right or left exit and how many lanes are used for the exit. The photo realistic view actually looks very similar to the exit lanes themselves!
The traffic feature is also a great feature, but has a minor bug or two. I found myself approaching a very recent accident and an alert appeared on the GPS, which I thought was rather impressive. In other cases, the traffic alert has indicated slow traffic ahead, which has typically been the case, but other times has already cleared up. Yesterday, the traffic alert called out a traffic jam with a one minute delay: the jam may well have been longer than that by the time I got to it. There was enough warning that I was able to re-route without any issues. I recently found myself in a very long line of traffic jam. I chose not to re-route, but it was nice to know about how many miles the jam was.
