  • Summary: I made a mistake when I bought this, by not noticing that this particular model does not have free unlimited map updates. I am returning it tomorrow. I have already ordered a replacement, the one that DOES have free updates, which is only $5 more.

  • Summary: The local add said "includes lifetime maps". This model did not include lifetime maps, so I returned it on the same day I picked it up. I never used it, and can't really rate the product itself. Map updates cost almost as much as buying a new unit. I would never buy one without lifetime map updates again, so I wouldn't recommend this product to a friend.

  • Summary: As I had to get rid of old GPS I started to hunt for cheap but good GPS. Then I found this GPS on Walmart official site. I like the way it shows the lanes and speaks before making turns. Over all I can go with this product, but before using it for the first time I did update to 2013 and then I think the performance is little bit weaker than 2012 GPS . I was able find the difference after update as I was using my friends 2012 gps , same stuff.

  • Summary: Great Buy! Be aware: the product is refurbished; most likely someone has owned and return it. When decided to buy the lifetime map subscription the produced showed up online to be already registered, meaning someone used it, Wal-Mart refurbished it but did not bother to remove the map subscription for the device with Garmin. It took me a week of emailing with customer support to fix the issue.

So far, it's okay

  • 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. My old unit sounds a tone right before verbal instructions are given; this new unit does not sound a tone, the verbal instructions just start, and that can be alarming sometimes and actually startle you.

  • Summary: I don't think this is a refurbished unit, but the info in it is a number of years old. It gets confused easily about where I am and what streets, etc. are around me. It misses most of the "newer" (within 3-4 years) stores and businesses when I search for specific points of interest. I'm sure it will keep me from getting lost, but it could be more accurate...

  • Summary: I recieved this product through the mail because I odered online. For about $74.00 with tax included. When I recieved it I had no idea I needed a 12 voltage receptor which my car dosn't have and it didn't include other chargers with the package. Other then that the product was fine.

  • Summary: According to the Garmin website, there are no lifetime map updates for the Garmen nuvi 50 5". This may make a difference for this otherwise nice GPS.

Ships in demo mode - no instructions

Terry Hutt, Amazon

  • Summary: I've never been impressed by Garmin's product documentation but now they've just given up completely. There's no documentation for this GPS system other than some extremely small HTML pages built into the product that simply state the obvious for the most part. Now for the stupid part - the system ships in demo mode which means it still won't turn on. The GPS simulator is turned off and when you find the screen that let's you turn it back on, it won't work.
