Garmin Nuvi 2455LMT GPS receiver

 

In my review of the Garmin Nuvi 50 (Essential Series), I stated that Garmin's interface for its entry-level portable navigation devices hasn't changed much over the last decade. So color me surprised when, upon booting up the Garmin Nuvi 2495LMT, I was...

The Garmin Nuvi 2495LMT 's updated interface makes searching for destinations and navigation both faster and more precise. Garmin's truly hands-free voice command system is one of the best in the portable navigation business. Lifetime map and traffic...

The Bluetooth connection doesn't sync with a phone's address book. Slow map rendering hinders overall performance.

With its improved interface, the Garmin Nuvi 2495LMT (Advanced Series) is as easy to use as earlier models, while offering a good blend of advanced features at a reasonable price.

The Garmin nüvi 2455LT is a low-end model in Garmin's 2012 nuvi Advanced series line, but don't let that fool you – the 2455LT is packed with features. One of the more significant refreshes in recent years, the Advanced series adds several new...

Strong customization options ; Exit services ; Lifetime traffic ; POIs can be displayed on the map ; Offers several choices of routes ; Extensive junction view and lane assist coverage ; Advanced detours allow you to exclude roads from active route ;...

Traffic is ad-supported and is beginning to get more intrusive with coupon icons appearing on the map screen when moving ; No powered mount ; Slight lag in menu responsiveness

Highly recommended. Even with my love of powered mounts (missing here), the nuvi Advanced series rocks. New (and very useful) customization options, exit services and choices of routes will tempt many nuvi owners to upgrade. It looks like Garmin has...

Garmin nuvi 2455LMT Automobile Portable GPS Navigator

 

Did not include complete users guide, only start up guide. Could have options I haven't been able to check out yet due to lack of instructions. Probably the norm now. Most companies expect you to print your own.

Very good voice prompts in city driving. Much better than comparable Tom Tom. About the same as Magellon

Does not show destination left in miles
