This review is from: Garmin Nuvi 255W Traffic Widescreen Satellite Navigation System with Full EU Mapping (Electronics)
Been using this now for about two weeks, what a great bit of kit.
I looked around at reviews before i bought, Garmin, TomTom etc - What a mine field of reviews.
Hear it is !
Map - great
Sound - does the job of telling you what to do, if you want premium hi fi quality, try looking and seeing if Cambridge Audio do a sat nav ?!?! It's great for a sat nav !!!!!!! Easily audible in a van with stereo at normal volume.
POI's - very handy
Getting satelites - very quick
User interface - no nonesense
Traffic - This is only as good as the Traffic network wherever you are traveling, it's free, if it doesn't work, you've lost nowt! it works great on major roads in East Anglia.
Downloadable gadgets - Fun
Screen - does the job great
Speed Camera stuff - spot on, lets you know, you can either have it in your face with a continuous beep or subtle ping every so often.
Other extras like the screen that logs your journey time, moving time, stopped time etc - priceless. A bonus i didn't realise i was getting.
All in all, i'm using it everyday - Fantastic.

Cn you select the type of vehicle on this SatNav? I've an older Garmin where I can select 'Truck' for when I'm towing a caravan thus avoiding minor roads etc....
