Small and conveniently built so that it can easily slide into one’s pocket, purse, or handbag, this super sensitive device has Hotfix(TM) features which make the device supply faster satellite acquisition and clearer, more concise imagery.

Consumers have come to truly appreciate the Garmin Nuvi 855 because it offers voice activated navigation accompanied by lane assist features. The speech recognition features, superior preloaded maps, anti theft features, and MP3 player, audio book reader, and conversion calculators, makes this GPS, not only handy, but fun.

The one thing that the 855 is lacking is the coveted Bluetooth technologies housed inside other Garmin Nuvi GPS systems. For Bluetooth potential, consumers often look to the other models in the Garmin Nuvi 805 series such as the Nuvi 885T which is housed with wireless Bluetooth® hands free calling management features and options.
