Garmin Nuvi 255W - my first satnav!, 24 Dec 2009
The Garmin Nuvi 255W is my first Satnav and I'm delighted with it. Easy to set up and get going. I thought getting started would be problematic but it wasn't. Attachment to the windscreen is simple and easily removed at the end of the journey. The screen is really easy to follow and has good contrast. However, my eyesight isn't the best and I need glasses to look at it when driving - but one day forgot them but it wasn't a problem as the verbal directions are clear and concise. Even if one makes a mistake it recalculates a new direction very quickly. The software update for UK and Europe are free for the first year and then charges apply. The only drawback, and this applies to other models in this price range, is no input about local traffic conditions. But for its price it great value.I'm really happy I bought this model and I don't know why I haven't done it before.
