Dedicated, Easy-to-use GPS Guidance
For driving directions on the road, put away the smartphone and power on your nüvi. nüvi 55LMT is an easy-to-use, dedicated GPS navigator that does not rely on cellular signals and is unaffected by cellular dead zones. nüvi provides easy-to-follow, spoken turn-by-turn directions with street names.
nüvi 55LMT features a bright, 5.0” dual-orientation display, for use horizontally or vertically.
Free Lifetime Map Updates
Roads change. Businesses open and close. nüvi 55LMT enables you to keep your device up-to-date with the latest maps¹ that Garmin has to offer, with no fees. Map updates also contain fresher points of interest, so your nüvi can give results that are more relevant and have greater accuracy. With increased road detail and more points of interest, new maps could be larger in size; as a result, map updates may require a microSD™ card (sold separately).
Lifetime Traffic Avoidance
nüvi 55LMT provides free lifetime traffic avoidance² for the useful life of your Garmin device. Be alerted to delays, know how many minutes of delay to expect and if there are any possible detours that may help save time and keep you on your way. You can also be assured if you are on the fastest route – so much useful travel information, with no ads and no subscription fees.
Navigate Complex Interchanges with Ease
nüvi 55LMT has lane assist with junction view that displays upcoming junctions and uses brightly colored arrows to indicate your proper lane.
Easier to Search, Quicker to Find
nüvi 55LMT has a search field that makes it easy to find addresses and millions of points of interest, in a single place. Now, simply enter a category (like “pizza”), an entire address (“1234 Sycamore Lane, Anytown, USA”) or a proper name (“Starbucks”) and nüvi 55LMT quickly returns your results.
More Information Right on Your Map
No need to search for a hard-to-read or nonexistent sign; with a glance at nüvi 55LMT, you’ll see your current street. nüvi also displays speed limit, current speed and estimated arrival time.
With the Up Ahead feature, you can easily find places you want – like restaurants, gas stations, ATMs and shops – without leaving the map. Best of all, Up Ahead is customizable, so you can always know the location of favorite destinations along your route.
You can access Up Ahead and other useful information from the map tools panel. Conveniently remain on your map screen and still find places Up Ahead, change the volume and more.
School Zone Warnings
nüvi 55LMT issues an audible alert and displays an onscreen warning whenever you approach a school zone.
