The Garmin nüvi® 855 is a GPS device.
This GPS unit is part of the nüvi® series of Garmin units, so it is naturally a powerful navigation tool. It comes with preloaded street maps for North America for navigation practically right out of the box. The features on the unit include voice recognition software, spoken street names, and lane assist. Lane assist is a feature that shows the user what lane to get into to exit correctly; however, it only works on main highways, such as interstates.
