Product Description

Let nüvi 2555LMT lead the way with its big 5” (12.7 cm) touchscreen display and powerful navigation features. It includes FREE lifetime traffic¹ and map² updates, advanced lane guidance and more.

Get Turn-by-Turn Directions

Garmin Guidance 2.0's intuitive interface greets you with two simple choices: "Where To?" and "View Map." Touch the screen to easily look up addresses and services and to be guided to your destination with voice-prompted, turn-by-turn directions that speak street names. It comes preloaded with maps for North America. It also comes preloaded with more than 8 million points of interest and offers the ability to add your own.

Avoid Traffic Tie-ups

With FREE lifetime traffic updates from 3D Traffic, our most extensive traffic avoidance system, nüvi 2555LMT 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.

Enjoy FREE Lifetime Map Updates

With FREE lifetime map updates, you always have the most up-to-date maps, points of interest and navigation information available at your fingertips. Map updates are available for download up to 4 times a year with no subscription or update fees and no expiration dates.

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 2555LMT 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 2555LMT 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 have not bought this product from Amazon but was browsing through the reviews and found out that someone has complained about lack of space to put Europe maps on it. As a user of Garmin nuvi 265WT and nuvi 880 I am aware of expandable storage using micro SD card. This model Garmin nüvi 2555LMT 5-Inch Portable GPS Navigator also has a micro SD card slot where the card can be inserted and space can be used to store additional supplementary maps. It is better to read the manual of a product or ask their tech support or Google before writing anything negative about a product from the leaders/pioneers of the industry.

I would recommend this product to anyone who owns a car that needs a GPS (and most folks do IMHO!)

The user interface is easy to work without the need for much reference to the manual, although you do have to practice using the GPS a few times to feel comfortable using it.

The screen is easy to read and the maps are good, and I like the clear spoken directions. (Which can be muted if you wish).

I like the free lifetime maps and traffic update feature.

I was disappointed it did not include voice commands but doubt if I would have used that feature much anyway.

I like the way it turns on and off automatically when you start or turn off your car.

Postscript: Now that I have owned and used this product for more than 6 months I am pleased to be able to say it has more than lived up to my expectations. One unexpected pleasure is the ability to explore country roads and see new scenery. It's a delight never to feel lost or have to ask the way.

This is my first GPS. It was an excellent choice. 5" screen is not too big and not too small ( a 4" screen would have been a mistake ). Writting on display is large, bright and easy to read for my old eyes. Unit is very intuitive. I could use the basics without even reading the manual. The split screen that comes on to show you what the sign and the off ramp of a highway looks like is a great feature in a big city. The indicator that tells you what lane you should be in is also a big plus when on the highway in unfamiliar territory. Volume range is excellent, you can hear it clearly over road noise even with the car window open. Love that you can use it in walking mode as well. Makes finding the closest restaurant or store easy in an unfamiliar city. This is not garmin's top model but with all the features included in this one I dont need the top model. Price and features makes this is an awesome unit.

I have an older Nüvi, also 5" so I bought this as a gift -- still married ;-)

Positives:
Big screen, excellent routing, very good navigation and recovery (after a wrong turn) and simple to use. Battery life is also very good. It has most of the features of the top-of-the-line units for less than half the price. Better windshield retention/position mechanism than most other brands.
The LifeTimeMap and Trafic are included at this price!
Garmin provides good on-line support for their units.

Negatives:
The windshield mount has to be pried apart for easier storage. Additional maps (e.g. Europe) are expensive.

Conclusion:
I would recommend this to any driver venturing beyond the home territory. It can be used in a pinch as a hike guide.

The voices I choose were "squelchy"; as if the speaker were speaking under-water...
I also found that during local trips, the directions were incorrect.
However, the delivery from Amazon, was great and the return of the defective device was also painless... thank you amazon!

Having purchased my Garmin 2555LMT over a year ago (from Amazon), I have had a chance to play with it.

PRO:
-Split screen feature,
-Accurate,
-5" screen is easily readable
-Traffic monitoring is excellent
-Concept of lifetime maps is HUGE BRILLIANT positive paradigm shift for positive customer experience
-reliable device, even in cold
-option to download multiple voices, car designs, and minor apps

CON:
-Problems downloading maps (did it once, second time a year later - it will not download even after updating the software, detecting the device, and trying from multiple computers)
-Traffic monitoring requires being connected to proper power cable
-Route Around Traffic - option would be a smart additional feature / button

I really like the 2555LMT - and were it not for an EXTREMELY frustrating issue that I am having with downloading the latest maps (that my recent journey would have needed!)... I would have given it a 4 or 4.5 out of 5. Solid purchase - well recommended.
