Reviews & Research

CNET Editors' reviewGood


    "The Garmin Nuvi 255W features a large touch screen and an easy-to-understand interface. Start-up, destination entry, and trip routing and rerouting times are slightly faster than the competition. ""Where am I?"" feature is very useful for emergencies. Text-to-speech reads street and points of interest names aloud."


    The Nuvi 255W's feature set is rather limited. Mounting cradle is bulkier than competing models and not very portable.


    "As entry-level GPS navigators go, the Garmin Nuvi 255W is still one of the best choices available for anyone who wants speedy performance without breaking the bank."

Great, reliable GPS that does everything I need

This is a great, reliable GPS that does everything I need. You can get one of these for a great price on eBay now. If you are interested in an entry level GPS, you should seriously consider this one compared to the others. Garmin's feature set and routing capabilities are almost always better than the other brands.
