Verdict

Go for the nüvi 265 instead - it's better value!

While the nüvi 255 is a great little navigator our recommendation is the newer nüvi 265 as the 265 comes preloaded with the latest Mapsource City Navigator Europe 2009 (V11) maps while the 255 has the older 2008 maps with a free update option.  For only an extra €14 you are saving a couple of hours of hassle updating the 2008 maps on the nuvi 255.  Not only that but with the nüvi 265 you get a more up to date user interface and Bluetooth® for hands-free calling so all-in-all the nüvi 265 is much better value for money.

About the nüvi 255
The nüvi 255 comes with full detailed maps of Ireland, the UK, Western and Eastern Europe.

The GPS is a simple navigator - it does not come with Bluetooth®, a MP3 player or traffic information.  The screen size is 3.5" diagonal and the integrated high sensitivity GPS receiver makes the nüvi 250 very portable.

Note that the GPS does not have an option to specify a vehicle type when calculating routes so it is not suitable for trucks and camper vans.

Unlike the nüvi 250, the nüvi 255 has two new features - "Where Am I" and HotFix.  The "Where Am I" function shows you your exact location and the nearest police station, petrol station and hospital.  The HotFix function helps acquire satellites quicker.
