Review submitted for Garmin nuvi 885T 4.3" GPS Navigator with Speech Recognition, Bluetooth, Lane Assist (GRNUVI885T)
Pros: Easy To Read, Easy To Set Up, Compact, Simple Controls, Reliable Performance, Easy Menus
Cons: Short Battery Life
Other Comments: Now that I bought this Garmin Nuvi, I just can't live without it. It does so much. It even directed me out of a winding themepark parking lot which doesn't have a street name. If you're not trying to find an address, but you still have it on, it tells you what exits are coming up. Or it tells you what road you're on. The only error I encountered was a thee-road fork with three different names, and I saw an entirely different name on my Garmin. This could have been my fault as a new user, and I didn't have much time to react. Garmin is the one for me.

Pros: Compact
Cons: Acquires Satellites Slowly
Other Comments: I use this product to find Hotels, restaurants, Friends address, and I am happy with it, but what I did not like at all is that It is really slow finding new routes, if a missed an exit or if I took the wrong street, I almost had to stop waiting for the new directions.

By Bud on July 27, 2010
Verified Purchase
Review submitted for Garmin nuvi 885T 4.3" GPS Navigator with Speech Recognition, Bluetooth, Lane Assist (GRNUVI885T)
Pros: Easy To Read, Easy To Set Up, Simple Controls, Acquires Satellites Quickly, Easy Menus, Large Screen, Compact
Cons: Short Battery Life
Other Comments: A giant leap forward over the Street Pilot III. Fast, lightweight and accurate. Very intuitive entering addresses. Mapping excellent. Screen occasionally "freezes". I do miss the "total trip data" page from the Street Pilot, but the overall improvement in showing secondary roads overcomes that loss. I had to return the 1st 885T for replacement. It would not charge from any DC source. [...] I highly recommend both Garmin and Beach Camera.

By Mike on June 30, 2010
Verified Purchase
Review submitted for Garmin nuvi 885T 4.3" GPS Navigator with Speech Recognition, Bluetooth, Lane Assist (GRNUVI885T)
Pros: Easy Menus, Easy To Read, Easy To Set Up, Reliable Performance, Acquires Satellites Quickly, Simple Controls, Large Screen
Cons: NOT incl FM AntennaPwr, Short Battery Life
Other Comments: Moved to new area - use to find points of interest and addresses. Does a great job of telling where to turn, what lane to get in, etc...with plenty of notice so you are not changing lanes at the last minute. Also displays the next exit coming up on the top row. Two minor items I think would make nearly perfect 1) if came with FM antenna/power cord instead of just MSN (web enabled) cord 2) getting blue tooth via the radio works OK - but does not go to lower channels that have no "noise" (comparable to a TVs snow).

Pros: Compact, Easy Menus, Reliable Performance, Large Screen, Easy To Read, Simple Controls, Easy To Set Up, Acquires Satellites Quickly
Cons: bluetooth, Car charger plug-in
Other Comments: I really like this model. I do have a hard time getting clear bluetooth phone call reception through the speakers. Plus, the place where the car charger plugs into charge the unit is inconvenient - it plugs into the side of the window mount. If the unit needs to charge, but your passenfer wants to use the GPS you are out of luck unless you disassemble it from the windshield.

Review submitted for Garmin nuvi 885T 4.3" GPS Navigator with Speech Recognition, Bluetooth, Lane Assist (GRNUVI885T)
Pros: Easy To Read, Compact, Simple Controls, Acquires Satellites Quickly, Easy Menus, Large Screen
Cons:
Other Comments: Previously owned a Nuvi 265. Worked great. Felt I would use it more with the speech recognition feature. First unit crashed while updating software. Exchanged for another unit. Second unit updated fine. Then installed free update for maps and took over 6 hours with DSL to update maps. Caller ID worked fine the first day, but hasn't worked since, and tech support hasn't been able to help yet. Don't want to return again after spending hours updating. However, speech recognition is wonderful. You don't even have to know how to spell. It hears you and gives you a couple of options of what it thinks you said. I can say a name in my phonebook and it brings up the number and dials. Perfect use with the new anti-texting laws.

Turned it in for this new model and wow! what a difference in screen size, speech recognition is awesome, and bluetooth is OK, traffic from MSN I think so far is great. The flexibilty of being able to re-route if coming up to a detour is also very good. All around really happy with this unit, will probably upgrade in another 5 years!

By Wind man on May 18, 2010

Review submitted for Garmin nuvi 885T 4.3" GPS Navigator with Speech Recognition, Bluetooth, Lane Assist (GRNUVI885T)
Pros: Easy Menus, Large Screen, Easy To Set Up
Cons: Inaccurate
Other Comments: It's nice to be able to just speak directions to it while driving and have it find the location; however, it can't hear you if you're driving on a noisy gravel road. Also, it's missing "elevation" and it's just a bit slow on telling you when to turn, so I've missed a couple of turns. It's also off a bit on identifying when you've arrived at your destination, but overall the "voice commands" feature makes it worth it for me.

4 out of 5 stars   Decent Garmin
By Stan Man on May 10, 2010
Verified Purchase
Review submitted for Garmin nuvi 885T 4.3" GPS Navigator with Speech Recognition, Bluetooth, Lane Assist (GRNUVI885T)
Pros: Large Screen, Easy To Set Up, Simple Controls, Easy To Read, Reliable Performance, Compact, Easy Menus
Cons: Acquires Satellites Slowly, Short Battery Life
Other Comments: This Garmin replaced my Street Smart 350C, it features a larger screen and the ability to upload music, books, voices, icons, and features traffic and voice recognition (which I have yet to use). It still takes a bit to aquire satalites at time but not as long as the Street Smart. The battery lasts under 2 hours with it off the adaptor. So far on some of the trips it is just as acurrate as the Street Smart, the lane change and full street names are a plus. The only negative thing I would say are the short battery life, and the fact that MSN traffic will be offline as of 1/1/12. Might have been better off getting an FM traffic Garmin. Who knows what will happen in 2012 with this one? If you want to save $100 buy the one with out the "T".

4 out of 5 stars   Awesome GPS Navigator!
By Mrs.Arwood[@] on May 10, 2010
Verified Purchase
Review submitted for Garmin nuvi 885T 4.3" GPS Navigator with Speech Recognition, Bluetooth, Lane Assist (GRNUVI885T)
Pros: Compact, Reliable Performance, Large Screen, Easy To Read, Simple Controls, Easy To Set Up, Easy Menus
Cons: Difficult Menus, Down side to MSN Direct
Other Comments: What's great about this product is, being unfamiliar to areas, and finding your way around like you are an area local! I love that I can use the points of interest to access all of the major things from food to gas. Some downfalls to this product are the MSN Direct, if you are not in a major city, chances are you will not have MSN Direct coverage which offers live traffic updates, up to date weather, and such. This for my family is not really important to have so it is fine with us, also MSN direct will be discontinued in 2012. Another downfall, sometimes the GPS will give you a bogus route. For example say you are on a ramp and you need to get to Taco Bells on the right. It may make you get off the ramp and than re-enter the ramp from the other side to get to the Taco Bell, when you may only need to go over the ramp and than turn right. The menu's are easy to use when you are not pressed for time, on the contrary, when you are in a place you do not know and all of a sudden your wonderful child says I need to go PEE RIGHT NOW!!! Trying to navigate that menu to find the closest gas station is like trying to find a needle in a haystack, your pressing menu buttons, the navigator isn't moving fast enough, you forget which button navigates to which menu, your child's yelling I have to pee now, your husband is swirving right and left, your ready to throw the GPS out the window, because it's not working at the speed of light. (It's not always that bad, but we have come across those moments from time to time) Over all this system is GREAT! It gets you where you need to go. It lets you know what speed you should be driving, and what speed you are driving, which is great when you are realizing everyone around you is passing you and you can't see a speed limit in sight for miles around. MY FAVORITE PART OF IT ALL!!!! is the ARRIVAL TIME! It lets you know the approximate time of when you should be arriving. I love this for appointments that are out of town, I can say things like, we are 20 mins. away and know that I really will be there at that time, give or take on traffic.
