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.

Get's the job done

  • Summary: This is a pretty good GPS, better than the last Garmin that was given to me as a gift a couple of years ago. The problems include freezing on route to my destination, making it necessary to restart the device, and this has happened several times since I've owned it over the last 2-3 months.

  • Summary: Used daily for 4 years, always works. The battery function works good, hate to update it, or should I say I hate to pay for updates

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.

  • 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.

Looking for a lunker...

  • Summary: Bought this mainly for the water resistance and the ability to take the Upper Midwest Fishing guide chip. I had to replace my last 500 since it is now at the bottom of the lake (grrr).

Just the right unit for snowmobiling

preferredproperty, Ebay

  • 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.

Amazingly functional for the price

  • Summary: Bought this unit mainly for the boat, (Using with Garmin lake map chip) but also wanted to be able to use for trail riding. I like that the chip is compatible with my Garmin Oregon. When I have it in the front of my boat by the trolling motor, I'm running off of the battery.
