If you need one for motor-based outdoor adventures, grab this model.

  • Summary: Great for snowmobiling when combined with trail maps from gpstrailmasters.com. Made for outdoor ATV/motorcycle/snowmobile use. Used it for 400+ miles in northern ME on a snowmobiling trip, only one minor issue that it rebooted once while riding in a snow storm. Not sure if it was a vibration issue or wetness? Has worked flawlessly the rest of the season.

I bought this Nuvi 500 for my off road vehicle, Polaris Razor.

  • Summary: I only use my new Nuvi 500 for off road. It is mounted on the dash with the supplied suction cup which holds fine. Pros: The screen is bright and clear and very easy to see, even in the sunlight. That it comes with TOPO maps at no extra charge was a $$ plus compared to other units. I am completely satisfied with this unit and do recommend it.

Garmin Nuvi 500

  • Summary: I will be using this on my snowmobile and in my truck both. I bought the the Ram Cradle and mount and the Garmin hardwire kit so I can mount this to my sled and wired it directly to the battery on the sled. The Nuvi comes with automotive mount so now I can transfer the Nuvi GPS unit only from my truck to my sled and back with great ease!

Just the right unit for snowmobiling

  • Summary: My original Nuvi 500 needed repair. I decided to purchase a new one in lieu of repairing the old one. Repair cost, new battery and only a 30 day warranty didn't make sense. I can't wait to use it snowmobiling this winter.

Great product for the features it claims to support.

  • Summary: Nuvi 500 is a great "starter" GPS for folks who want to do more than go from A->B. I bought this for customizing "routes" for my motorcycle rides. Its also waterproof, which makes it a bit more rugged. if you need something for outdoor activities than just automobiles, this is a good start. if you've got $$, then you go could ideally buy a Garmin Zumo or the etrex/legend etc.

  • Summary: This is a GREAT product! We use it both on the highway and on our side by side when we are mudding/off roading. It is a great value due that you buy one product and can use it anywhere! Highly recommended!
