Cheap and functional but very annoying

S. Hampton, Amazon
27 March 2013
  • Summary: Cheap and does the job. picks up satellites quickly. You have to press the screen pretty hard to enter information. If you have the settings on default, it will power down when you switch your car engine off, then power back on again when you start the engine so that it keeps a full battery.

Defective

Joe Lahoud, Amazon

  • Summary: My PC couldn't detect this GPS unit, to allow updating maps. Garmin support staff couldn't find a solution and agreed it was defective. I used it a few times before trying to update. It was simple and useful-- definitely a low-end unit, but OK.

Good until the maps stopped working (after 3 months)

Mr.D., Amazon
28 May 2012
  • Summary: I would have previously said this was a good GPS, but after about 3 months of moderate use it will not boot up. I emailed Garmin, and got a reply which said in part "We've discovered a problem with the nuvi 30, 40, and 50 products that in some cases will prevent them from booting up successfully.

irritating

A.S., Amazon
27 May 2012
  • Summary: The best way to describe this product is irritating. I chose it because of the reviews but alas! Garmin nuvi 50 does not provide you with itineray. it's also slow; it announces the streets as you just pass them and it doesn't make a sound as you get to the point where you need to make a turn.
