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.

I was not able to use it due to defect in device

Boris "borik_k", Amazon
16 July 2012
  • 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 to do nothing. After 3rd try I was able to contact a Garmin TechSupport, sent it to them, but still expecting this device back!!! Can you believe that???

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! PS this is the second garmin device I've bought that hasn't worked. I purchased a GPS running watch which broke the first day I used it. I should have learned my lesson.

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!! Although MapSource or BaseCamp will indicate that a route has been sent to the device successfully, these devices are unable to read the file since they do not support that feature!!!

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). Something is very wrong with our Garmin. My husband has had to use his blackberry GPS instead of the Garmin. We really would like to have a working GPS that we could place on dash.

Seriously BAD categories - difficult to find even the main tourist spots!

S-J, Amazon
24 August 2014
  • Summary: Sorry to say this but it had hardly anything on it when we used it in Ireland. Many of the famous places were not on there and when they were on there we had to seriously think about what possible category they would be in! The actual machine is no problem, warnings are good, timing is good, alarms are a pain but just right to warn us of pending doom...or at least coppers with speed guns! But boy was that software bad ...really not worth the buy!

  • Excerpt: НЕ СОВЕТУЮ
  • Pros: Якрий экран качественная сборка приятный на ощупь мнгновенно находит спутник удобный крепеж к стеклу это все...
  • Cons: как навигатор - не пригоден для использования!!!!!!!! Маршруты строит ужасающие, длиннющие... Всего три настройки - кратчайшее расстояние, наименьшее время и прямой маршрут. Первые две вообще никак не отличаются, третья просто проводит сплошную линию. Маршрут перестраивает быстро, но также неадекватно, уже почти приехал, а он все предлагает развернуться.... Это просто кака. И карты! Они не обновленные, хотя в самом навигаторе карту обновили до последней версии, но он ...

плохой

  • Summary: Первое обновление карт мы еще пережили с горем пополам (обновляли через Express, только с одного ноута и смогли обновить), а вот второе.... второй день все бестолку! Сначала программа писала, что обновление выполнено успешно, потом сам девайс перестал подключаться к компьютеру вообще,сейчас и вовсе завис! Не покупайте эту гадость!

  • Excerpt: Ни кому не советую, редкостная гадость, если бы покупал пошел бы ругаться за что деньги берут
  • Pros: подарили
  • Cons: редкостная гадость, экран на солнце не видно, глючит постоянно, голос (особенно про искусственные неровности) страшно противный, норовит загнать в грязь. Мучился месяц, вчера разбил, рассматриваю другой бренд.

  • Excerpt: Не стоит тратить на такое фуфло денег.
  • Pros: Быстро меняет маршрут.
  • Cons: Странный. Очень. Неправильно ведёт. Нет пробок. Сегодня стоял на месте, а он показывал, что я еду и в то же время ехал сам по карте. Полный идиотизм.
