Thanks to sharp-eyed reader “A,” we’ve learned of a couple of oddball nuvi units out there, despite their absence from the official nuvi 2012 series list.
The nuvi 2455LM even has its own product page, and appears to have been available down under since this past summer. It seems to have hit North American shores more recently as a holiday special at Sams Club.
Meanwhile the nuvi 2555LM is absent from Garmin’s website, but is available from a couple of sellers via Amazon and a smattering of other places like Costco and BJs.
Basically, these are the 4.3″ nuvi 2455LMT and 5″ nuvi 2555LMT, minus the traffic receiver. When Garmin announced their 2012 line, we saw 2x55LT and LMT units, and now we have ones for folks who eschew traffic models.
It’s not unusual to see one-off units, exclusives and model number variations this time of year. In my Black Friday predictions I mentioned the TomTom START 50/50TM, VIA 1400M and Garmin nuvi 30LM. Now we have a couple more models to add to the list.
