For peace of mind on the go, nüvi
255 leads the way with voice-prompted turn-by-turn directions that speak street
names and optional MSN® Direct to get you there on time and keep you informed.
It's packed with millions of destinations and maps for North America or Europe.
Like the rest of the compact nüvi 2x5-series, this portable navigator is priced
right and ultra-easy to use.
Navigate With Ease
nüvi 255 comes ready to go right out of the box with preloaded City
Navigator® NT street maps, including a hefty points of interest (POIs) database
with hotels, restaurants, fuel, ATMs and more. It even announces the name of
exits and streets so you never have to take your eyes off the road. Simply touch
the color screen to enter a destination, and nüvi takes you there with
turn-by-turn voice directions, 2-D or 3-D maps and and smooth map redraw rates
as you navigate. Its digital elevation maps show you shaded contours at higher
zoom levels, giving you a big picture of the surrounding terrain. In addition,
nüvi 255 accepts custom points of interest (POIs), such as school zones and
safety cameras and lets you set proximity alerts to warn you of upcoming POIs.
With HotFix™ satellite prediction, nüvi calculates your position faster to get
you there quicker.
Take It With You
Like the rest of the nüvi 2x5-series, nüvi 255 sports a sleek, slim design
and fits comfortably in your pocket or purse. Its rechargeable lithium-ion
battery makes it convenient for navigation by car or foot. With its "Where Am
I?" emergency locator, you always know your location. Simply tap the screen to
get your exact latitude and longitude coordinates, the nearest address and
intersection, and the closest hospitals, police stations and fuel stations.
Go Beyond Navigation
Navigation is just the beginning. nüvi 255 includes many travel tools
including JPEG picture viewer, world travel clock with time zones, currency
converter, measurement converter, calculator and more. With photo navigation,
you can download Google™ Panoramio™ pictures via our Garmin Connect™ Photos
website and navigate to them. The 255 is compatible with optional enhanced MSN®
Direct content (subscription and receiver required) and our free Garmin Garage
where you can download animated vehicles that show your location on the map. It
also comes with Garmin Lock™, an anti-theft feature. Enhance your travel
experience with optional plug-in microSD cards such as Garmin Travel Guides for
detailed data on attractions.
