Really Disappointed, DOA

Anonymous "Bookish Baker", Amazon
1 September 2013
  • 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

Suzan Snook, Amazon
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.

Buggy Device

Monte Reed, Amazon
3 January 2013
  • 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: 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.

Buy a TomTom instead

Amazon
6 June 2012
  • 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!

Please be aware of limitations!!!

Babinicz, Amazon
3 June 2012
  • 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!!

not user friendly

Kaye, Amazon
3 April 2012
  • 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).
