Avoid Traffic Tie-ups
With FREE Lifetime traffic updates from 3D Traffic, our most extensive traffic avoidance system, nüvi 2555LT can help you avoid delays. We check traffic conditions more than 2 billion times each month, so you can easily reroute around congestion and arrive on time.
Know the Lane Before It’s Too Late
Now there’s no more guessing which lane you need to be in to make an upcoming turn. Available in select metropolitan areas, photoReal junction view makes unfamiliar intersections and exits easy to navigate. When you approach an exit or interchange, nüvi 2555LT will enter split screen mode and show you a realistic depiction of junctions on your route, complete with road signs and arrows that indicate the proper lane for navigation.
Go Beyond Navigation
Point-to-point navigation is just the beginning. nüvi 2555LT features a microSD™ card slot so you can store and use detailed cityXplorer™ maps or download custom voices and vehicles for free from the Garmin Garage. Dual-orientation functionality lets you hold the nüvi vertically or horizontally for added convenience driving or walking. The "Where Am I?" emergency locator provides your exact latitude and longitude coordinates, the nearest address and intersection, and the closest hospitals, police stations and more. And Enhanced Exit Services tells you what services you’re approaching on the highway.

I had a problem acquiring a signal when I set up previous Garmins for the first time. The 2555LT finds the signal in just a few seconds. Configuring a route also is very quick with this model.
Although the display is not as crisp as the 4.3", the 5.0" screen on the 2555LT is quite readable even in bright sunlight. I have tried both TomTom & Magellan and they are both weak in their displays showing too much glare in sunlight.
Garmin has introduced many software changes making it easier for users to navigate. One example is the inclusion of a STOP graphic that enables you to stop your current route without having to go to a separate sub-menu. The 2012 software shows your saved destinations and tells you how many miles & minutes it takes to arrive there.
The best benefit of the 2555LT is the price. My first GPS units were close to $300. Now with the 2555LT you get a 5.0" screen, traffic, junction view, eco-route and all the new features under $190.
if you are considering a GPS, the Garmin nuvi 2555LT is simply a no-brainer!
Search: It works good and I have no problem learning the newer user interface. One ding I can give Garmin is that the "address" UI does not completely respect the choices made in `searching near' - it magically broadens the searchable area to include the whole state. So, for example, if you set "searching near " to Santa monica, CA and then enter "2645" for the house number and "main" for the street, Nuvi will happily search the entire state of California for 2645 main street. The search itself takes less than 25 seconds on my 2555, which is admirable, but produces a less-than-useful list of things from which to choose. I've asked Garmin to investigate to see if this is intentional or if we can expect a firmware upgrade to fix this silliness. However - if you know the exact address you don't need to use the intelligence of the "address" UI anyway, especially if you get cranky over additional clicks. Just type "2645 main" into the search box (don't use "address" UI) and voila you get a useful results list in less than 5 seconds. The search box respects the city and state so the search is quick and accurate.Read more ›
*The traffic report seemed to be accurate about 75% or more of the time.
*The display looks great
*want to find a place to go - depending on what your looking for you might have tons of steps to go through deep in the menu.
*Garmin rerouting sucks - (this really happened) while on the freeway, traffic report says congestion ahead and suggest alternate route. The alternate route was still through the traffic congestion. <-that's smart. To top things off, there was an exit 100 yards up so I took it. The Garmin insisted I go back to get on the freeway right where I got off, back into the congestion. (the freeway was at total stop btw) No matter what, I could not get the Garmin to reroute like I would my old Garmin by hitting the Detour button. I ended up in the end using my Montana to map a way to a on ramp further down the freeway.
*If you know a place by location and not by name searching via zooming out and panning the map sucks. The map turns into some horrible watercolor image that makes identifying roads almost impossible.
*Poor Interface - the worst yet this is for driving, having to click button after button and reading all the options distracts from driving.

The traffic updating on this makes it worthwhile - and that the narration uses Street Names. Look for those two features if you are going to purchase any GPS. Read morePublished on January 24, 2014 by K-K-K-KATY
