  • Summary: Does the job. The specs on this one did not say only the lower 48 states. It did not even say U.S only. Only cuz I thot it would include Canada. But for most people who dot drive out of america, this is a fine product.

  • 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.
