  • I have given up on Garmin Customer service. The last time I called with a question, I was treated rudely,and very condesending. So..... I will live with my Garmin for now,but will move onto to another source when my next purchase comes up.
  • I don't bother punching in addresses in my 255. I just go to and enter the address/state/province etc and then dump into my unit. It shows up in your favourites list.
  • Thanks everyone for your replies. I always felt the gps was more accurate and your answers confirm that.
  • I got a 255W for Christmas,and it seems to do all the things that meets my needs. I don't need an FM transmitter. I will probably not use the POI feature,I don't need to be entertained,I just want to get from point A-B and back again safely and accu…

  • I breathe on it & use a microfibre cloth. I usually use a PDA wand or the soft erasure end of a pencil to punch in directions.
  • Clint: Even a row of tall trees will interfere with signal reception. It's just the ' nature of the beast ' I have driven thru some National parks in Oregon and have temporarily lost signals.
  • Thanks for the prompt replys. After some detective work i found the info I need. Thanks again
  • Ken: Just for giggles. I entered Grand Mound WA as a destination on Map Quest and had no trouble finding a map. It sounds like a bug in the system. Heck we have a major 'perimeter road around the city were I live,and it is not listed. I got my nuvi…
  • Albert: I have a nuvi 255w which is essentially the same as yours,and mine does the same thing.If it says 'drive 6km',that's the only thing it will say until your next turn. It will not give you any more directions until just before your next turn.…
