With Lifetime maps and traffic, Real Directions for more natural instructions, speed camera alerts and much more, the 5-inch nüvi 2557LMT is an advanced sat nav designed to give you a safer, faster and stress-free journey.

Crisp, High Resolution Display

nüvi 2557LMT has a 5.0" high resolution display and dual-orientation capabilities allow you to use either horizontally or vertically.

Detailed Maps with Free Updates

nüvi 2557LMT arrives loaded with detailed maps of Europe. With free lifetime¹ map updates, your routes are sure to reflect the most up-to-date maps, POIs (points of interest) and navigation information. New maps are available for download up to 4 times per year, for the life of your device, with no fees.

nüvi 2557LMT makes it easy to find addresses and millions of POIs such as businesses, stores, restaurants and other destinations. It arrives preloaded with POIs, so there’s no need for you to enter that address information. Just select one — or many — and navigate there, quickly and easily. You also have the ability to add custom POIs.

Lifetime Traffic

nüvi 2557LMT comes with free Lifetime Traffic so you get reliable alerts to avoid incidents and congestion en route. There is comprehensive coverage of motorways and A roads across the UK and Europe.

There are no ongoing subscriptions – simply use out of the box – for free.

Traffic alerts appear to the side of your map and traffic reports are spoken too. Garmin Traffic can give details about the situation, such as how many minutes of delay to expect and if there are any possible detours. It can even confirm whether or not you are on the fastest route.

Lifetime traffic² entitles your nüvi 2557LMT to receive free traffic information for its entire useful life.

Keep an eye on the latest speed cameras

nüvi 2557LMT contains our unique Cyclops Speed Camera system, for real-time, direction-relevant and accurate alerts. The full safety camera database is already pre-loaded on your sat nav. However, you can get regular or one-off updates to ensure you’ve always got the latest camera locations, so you can drive safety and legally.

Garmin Real Directions™ with Garmin Real Voice™

nüvi 2557LMT comes with Garmin’s unique Real Navigation. This includes Real Directions that guide like a friend, using recognisable landmarks, buildings and traffic lights. For example you may be advised to “turn left over tower bridge” or to “turn right after the cathedral”. Using prominent milestones even on unfamiliar roads means you’re not constantly trying to read street names, making your journey much easier and ensures you’re never misled. Along with this you also get a more natural sounding voice and realistic images of road signs.

Comprehensive Driving Guidance You See and Hear

Active Lane Guidance with voice prompts prepares you to drive through an exit or junction with confidence. As you approach, an animated model uses brightly coloured arrows to indicate the proper lane needed for your route; a friendly voice offers additional help.

photoReal junction view realistically displays junctions and road changes along your route, including the surrounding landscape and road signs. Again, arrows indicate the proper lane to be in.

For complicated junctions, Bird’s Eye junction view offers a detailed ariel picture of the road network, looking down as if from overhead.

More Information at a Glance

nüvi 2557LMT keeps your driving map onscreen at all times and additional information appears alongside. For details simply touch the screen. As you drive your route, the ‘Up Ahead’ feature constantly informs you of nearby services, including restaurants, petrol stations, hospitals and stores.

nüvi 2557LMT displays speed limit, current speed and accurate time of arrival. With a quick glance, you can read the name of your current street.

One-stop Device Management

Use Garmin Express to keep your nüvi up-to-date. Garmin Express makes it easy to update maps and software, transfer favourites to and from devices, and install free custom vehicles and voices.
