Garmin Nuvi 55 Sat Nav system on offer at Aldi (and other places too)
Looking at the upcoming special offers on the Aldi web site I see that from Thursday 16th October 2014 they will be offering the GARMIN nüvi 55 Sat Nav system for £89.99.
I thought I would see how this price compares with other retailers selling the 5″ Garmin Nuvi 55 satellite navigation system and found that both Halfords and Currys selling the UK & ROI version of the nüvi 55 for £89.99. The difference between these two and the Aldi offer would seem to be that the model from the German supermarket comes preloaded with maps of Western Europe rather than just the UK and the Republic of Ireland, useful if you intend driving on the continental mainland but otherwise superfluous.
Features of the Garmin Nuvi 55 Sat Nav include:
- 5” dual-orientation display
- Turn-by-turn directions with spoken street names
- Lane Assist with Junction View
- Rechargeable lithium-ion battery
- Free Lifetime Map updates
