Sup Par turning indicators.

Morgan Kennedy, Amazon
14 February 2014
  • 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.

Not working yet!

  • Summary: I have not been able to use it because it is not accepting my information. Will have to figure out how to input info. Would recommend Garmin. Just not this model!

Generally OK but some glitches

Dino, Amazon
13 September 2013
  • 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'.

So far, it's okay

Michigan resident, Amazon
23 January 2013
  • 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.

serves purpose

big hands golfer "golfer with big hands", Amazon
16 January 2013
  • 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.

Easy To Use but Not Last

R. Politton "Brotherhood & Servanthood", Amazon
20 September 2012
  • Summary: It's easy to use. After almost 9 months there were white line on the screen and continued until 4 lines. I'm glad that I contacted Garmin a week before the warranty expire. Customer service was nice but be prepare to stay on the line for 20-30min.

So far not happy

S. Schmidt "jewelry junkie", Amazon
25 August 2012
  • Summary: Just went to download map update to the nuvi 50LM that I received yesterday and downloader says, not enough space to update all the maps, so I had to pick 49 Lower States instead of both US and Canada. What's up with that? On the fence about this purchase now.

Makes two lame-brained errors, one critical

super-elastic, Amazon
11 August 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.

Ships in demo mode - no instructions

Math Addict, Amazon
27 July 2012
  • 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.

GPS

F. B. Foster "Brad", Amazon
12 May 2012
  • Summary: Basic, no fills directions - which is what I wanted. Don't need traffic updates. Cord is a little unweildy and suction cup has popped off windshield once o twice, but otherwise very user friendly and functional. Good value for the price.
