Pull the wool from your eyes, don't buy this out dated unsupported GPS
6 August 2011
Summary: I've had the IQuem5 for 7 yrs. I loved it so much I decided to buy more for my other vehicles. Well after buying two. One has nothing that comes with it. The other doesn't have the windshield mount. Garmin doesn't support anything at all with these anymore. If you don't get the mapsource disk and unlock code with it your screwed. You can only load so many sections of maps on to a disk. The one I bought had no sections from my part of the country.
Summary: I have a Garmin M3 and I use it everday. The screen is starting to lose calibration every so often, so I wanted a backup and I know Garmin doesn't make these anymore. So I picked up an M5. Garmin changed the GPS software from the M4 to the M5. The M5 is not as user friendly as the M3 and M4. I like the M3 software better. The M5 seems to function faster than the M3. I like these PDA units with GPS. I can carry my contacts, schedule and have a GPS in the unit.
Summary: The Garmin iQueM5, though out of production, is still the best combination of pda and navigation and maybe the most user friendly navigation system available. With a 2gig SD card, you can load it with detail maps of the entire U.S. including points of interest. You can sit in your favorits chair and plan trips to anywhere. On the road, by a touch on the screen you can find the nearest place to buy gas or whatever kind of food you want, or a room for the night.
Summary: Pretty cool unit. I a impressed by all the capabilities. Still playing/learning with different functions. Wish they (Garmin) still made/support these units. They are very handy at a cheap price!
Summary: The greatest things is route planning for all the different stops I need to make. It calculates the shortest, most efficient route with multiple points. Also, I love the fact that it can also handle my appointments, emails, and contacts.
Summary: This product works perfectly for what I use it for. I've used the GPS functionality to navigate around Boston and Massachusetts, and it has worked flawlessly in that capacity. I've used Pocket Word to input various notes, and that has also worked for me. I've used Pocket Excel to manage grading for my 100 9th grade students in my 9th grade algebra class, and it's worked exceptionally well there as well.
Summary: As an experienced GPS user (Four Garmin GPS devices including two iQue models), who was once assigned with the military organizations which manage the GPS program, I can tell you that the iQue M5 is an excellent GPS and well worth the money. The Mobile Windows really gives you the "pocket PC" experience and the GPS portion seems to be quite a step-up from the earlier iQue models (I also have an iQue 3200). This all-in-one device puts all the modern conveniences (i.e.
