So easy to use a " Flintstone " like me can understand it.

Summary: Great unit. Large screen makes a big difference. Installer says it needed the antenna even though it was on the hardtop, contrary to the manual. Don't know if it did or not but it workers great.
Summary: Even though I am limited to navigation on Lake Erie, its been and excellent tool for helping me get where I need to go. Have taken several trips with it and find it to be very valuable in getting me where I need to go. I like the fact it is very responsive, and redraws quickly as I change perspectives. It does a great job of showing me where I am at which is helpful as I navigate thru some fairly shallow channels and water.
Summary: I've read, "the only thing missing on the 5212 is buttons!" This isn't entirely true as their were some serious oversights when writing the firmware for this unit. After speaking with Garmin tech support several times (confirming the story I got across multiple people) it became evident that this item was rushed to market in time for the Holidays and they are playing catch up with the software on the unit.
