Disapointed in functionality

Pros: 5" screen lifetime map and traffic updates
Cons: can not load entire us map into gps when updating
Model Number: Nuvi 2555 LMTHD
"I purchased this model because of the 5' Screen. When I done the initial map update, I could not load the entire US map into the GPS. This was one of the reasons I upgraded from my old Nuvi. I can not believe that Garmin would not put enough memory into the GPS to store the entire US map. I could only load different areas of the US. Earlier I had purchased the 4" GPS 2495LMTHD and I did not have a problem installing the complete map. This model also has Bluetooth and Voice Activation which I was willing to give up for the larger screen. But I decided to keep the 4" Model because of its functionality to load entire maps"

Horrible

Pros: i like the colors on the maps. (0:
Cons: everything about it!!!!
Model Number: nuvi2555LMTHD 5"
"This product was totally unsatisfactory. I am ready to give up on NUVI. I bought this one to replace a defective nuvi 1090, which was supposed to have lifetime map and traffic updates. However, it never gave a single traffic alert and when I tried to update, after a very frustrating experience of trying to find the page to upload new maps, I was informed that the 1090 did not have enough space to upload the map update.
When I received the new product it was nearly impossible to get to the page to register and get the new update that was available. When I finally got to the right page, I tried to install the update, and after several hours of having it connected to the computer, uploading the update, I got the message that the upload had failed. I will try Magellan instead.

Wonderful upgrade

Pros: tells you what services are at the next exit
Model Number: Garmin nuvi 2555LMTHD 5" Portable GPS
"I have an older Garmin nuvi that I purchased at Costco 2 or 3 years ago. I decided I wanted an upgraded version with lifetime map upgrades so I did some research on Consumer Reports and decided on this model. I'm so glad I did. It is wonderful. Has all the features of my old one and so many new ones."

Pooped out after a month

Model Number: Garmin nuvi 2555LMTHD 5" Portable GPS
"I purchased this Garmin about a month and a half ago. Loved it until yesterday when it wouldn't turn off anymore. Its like its stuck. Will have to take it back today. Don't know what to do about getting another one. I tried the 5" Magellan but didn't like it because I had been used to the Garmin. It did have neat features on it but didn't have the speed on the road or what speed you were traveling. I wish this one didn't stop because it was great for awhile...."

Nice unit but misleading manual/software

Pros: easy to use. worked right from the costco lot.
Cons: misleading info about bluetooth capability
Model Number: Nuvi 2555LMTHD
"Used the unit for a couple of days setting up my preferences and waypoints. Found out that the manual AND THE UNIT ITSELF were incorrect in stating that it had bluetooth capabilities. Returned it to my local warehouse without any problems and purchased Nuvi 2595LMT, which is basically the same unit but with bluetooth, Both units use a manual written for Nuvi 2405/2505."

No regester available

Pros: none
Cons: no good instructions on how to register this gps.
Model Number: 710349
"I tryed for 3 days to register my new Garmin nuvi 2555LNTHD GPS and I tryed everything. The USB coard was to short.
My Garmin was not listed.
I coule not go past the screan that just showed my where I was. I tried to do what the owners manual said to do but it would not work. And the Bill Me Later was even worse. So I took it back.

NEW NUVI

Model Number: Garmin nuvi 2555LMTHD 5" Portable GPS
"I've owned several earlier Garmin models and this one is a big step up. The screen size allows easier reading of some items and the screen is a real touch screen - if you enter multiple destinations you can re-order them with touch & drag."

Cons: none

"Purchased primarily for "pedestrian" mode and it works well. I have 5" which is a bit big to carry but easier to see. Everything about the unit has been great so far."
