Garmin Nuvi 55LM GPS


To no surprise at all, Garmin is back on our list already for their second entry. This is another model from the Nuvi range, though this is very much more from the entry-level range.

So yes, on the one hand, you are looking at a lower price for this model than the one we looked at above. To achieve this, some bells and whistles have been stripped out and this is certainly a more basic all-around model. You have lost the voice-activated control, for example, along with real-time traffic updates.

You do still get fast and accurate satellite navigation, lifetime map updates and a very well designed, bright and easy to read the screen. If you only want navigation assistance without the thrills and extras of premium models, it’s hard to look past this offering. It does exactly what it sets out to do, does it all very well and won’t break the bank either.
