Summary: this gps is dangerous. it takes you on wild goose chases which are nowhere near where you want to go. there must be some software glitch which is especially apparent when you change destinations. stay away
Summary: I would leave zero stars if I could. Product dead on arrival. Would only display GARMIN on screen. Never charged up. Computer would not recognize it. Oh, and no manual, no instructions. Was this a refurb? It was supposed to be new. Back it goes.
Poor quality inaccurate direction for Garmin Nuvi 50 5-inch GPS

26 June 2013
Summary: This GPS upon first use gave me incorrect direction. I was told to turn on a one way street and the problems continued. I would not buy this navigator. I am going to the Garmin store as they will give me $50.00 and exchange it.
Summary: Some Nuvi 50s are shipped with buggy software and require tech support to get working. Check up Garmin's support website for details before buying. If you want an easy to use product, this is not it.
Summary: this GPS is my second one within 3 months and it died while I was driving. the battery was fully charged.I won't recommend it to any customer. my first one the same make died after 32 days and I could not return it and I bought another one of the same make and it died in 24 days.
Summary: 7 MONTHS OLD, AND IT WON'T BOOT UP. JUST WHEN YOU WANT TO DEPEND ON IT, THERE IS NOTHING THERE. THIS IS THE GARMIN NUVI 50- THEY ARE AWARE OF A PROBLEM AND DON'T HAVE THE COURTESY TO CONTACT YOU WITH THE SOFTWARE FIX.
Summary: I bought this item as my dad's father day present. It arrived pretty quickly, but unfortunately I was not able to use it, due to defect in device - I was able to connect it to my computer, but Garmin online program was not able to recognize it and I was not able to register it, basically I was able...
Summary: First of all the owners manual has zero information. I bought European maps, could not get the device to install them. Called Garmin and was put on hold for 45 minutes. The solution they gave still didn't work. I spent 200+ for something I can't even use! Thanks Garmin!
Summary: The nuvi 30, 40, 50, 200, 205, 300, 600, 1100, 1200, or 1300 series do not support multiple stop routing!!! This is very important. You can create your own route, but you can not use this on the Nuvi. There is no warning, so please take this under consideration!!
Summary: Our experience with this Garmin is not good! It doesn't find locations when properly entered. The Garmin website is not user friendly at all. We want to return it. Unfortunately it is beyond the 30 days and we will not get our full purchase price (according to info on web).
