Its that time of the year again, when your spouse, girlfriend, boyfriend, or just friend is making you go visit their parent's. Not only do you have to take off work, or worse- Monday night football- you have to drive all the way over there.
Luckily, you have the cool and slick Garmin Nuvi 255W GPS you bought from DailyCheckout for 90 bucks.
Anyways, so your on your way driving along the highway and the nice sounding female garmin voice ask's you, oh so politely, to make a right at the next exit and you reply to her, thank you. Meanwhile, your better half is getting mad at you for actually flirting with the GPS. how could you not? With the Automatic rerouting, Turn-by-turn voice prompts, and Route planning, this item has got it all!
While getting into the car for the drive home, 3 days later, your thinking about how your Garmin Nuvi will make it easier...but its gone!
With easy-to-use TouchScreen displays, the nuvi 255 can route to addresses, restaurants, hotels and more with turn-by-turn directions and voice guidance. nuvi 255 will include text-to-speech, which will prompt you to "Turn right on Main Street." New appealing features include MSN Direct compatibility, HotFix, Garmin Connect Photos, Digital elevation maps, automatic time zone updates and smoother map updates. nuvi 255 is compatible with an Optional MSN Direct Receiver (GDB 55). This optional MSN Direct receiver provides premium content such as traffic updates, weather, gas prices, enhanced movie listings, stock info, news, local events and a send-to-GPS feature for trip planning. nuvi 255 has broader map coverage and comes preloaded with City Navigator NT road maps for North America and 6 million points of interest.
