Garmin nüvi 50 5-inch Portable GPS Navigator(US)

R. Wiley, Amazon
11 February 2013
  • Summary: Disappointed in navagation ability. It tends to direct me in every direction but the right one. I like most all of the other features. It is easy to read and the display is very colorful. It is amazing how up to date the info is. It is easy to find points of interest..

So far, it's okay

Michigan resident, Amazon

  • Summary: I've only had this unit a month, so haven't used it on any long road trips, but have noticed a few things already. Compared to a 10 year old Garmin Streetpilot III that I own, there are a few things from my 10 year old unit that I wish this unit had.

Garmin nuvi 50LM--OK with some glitches

chica95, Amazon
23 September 2012
  • Summary: I recently purchased a Garmin Nuvi 50LM. I've never had a GPS before, so can't really compare it except to a friend's Magellan which she had on a trip when I was using the Garmin. The Garmin seems to work OK except for a couple of annoying things: First, the prompts to "drive to designated route.

LM or LMT means Lifetime Map Updates

Karen, Amazon
7 June 2012
  • Summary: LM (Lifetime Map) and LMT (Lifetime Map and Traffic) means FREE Updates for as long as you have your Garmin. Any Garmin without LM or LMT after the model number does not come with free map updates. On the Garmin site the cost of each map update for North America is $59.99.

Makes two lame-brained errors, one critical

Super-Elastic, Amazon
28 May 2012
  • Summary: Works well except for two baffling errors, one of which is serious. This is the serious one: at freeway junctions where there is a ramp that later forks into the two opposite directions, as it instructs you to take the ramp, it will only announce the name of the alphabetically first direction.

Sup Par turning indicators.

Morgan Kennedy, Amazon
28 May 2012
  • Summary: It's OK, but given the technology of today, it is less than what I expected. For example, it will say "turn right on Main Street" But it will not tell you when main street comes up. If you are in high traffic, and cannot be looking at the map, you have to know when Main Street approaches.

Generally OK but some glitches

Dino, Amazon
28 May 2012
  • Summary: Unit is OK, acquires signal pretty quickly (main advantage over my smart phone). Database of "Points of Interest" is far from complete, sometimes wrong and certainly not up to date. But would get a better review if not for two very annoying 'features'.

serves purpose

big hands golfer, Amazon
28 May 2012
  • Summary: The Garmin was a gift. The person receiving the gift saw mine and liked it so I got him one. the down side is having to update maps and even at that if you are in an area with a lot of road construction it sometimes does not pick up the road changes after the perminent change takes place.
