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.

  • 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.

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.

  • 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!

Easy to use, smart machine...

  • Summary: I'm still learning about the Nuvi 500. But, from what I've seen it's been very easy to operate. I bought it for my ATV. I saw a number of people liked it for use on their machines. I've only used it in my car and it's super easy to setup right out of the box. I've been a TOMTOM user for ten years.

  • Summary: Great GPS unit - quick response and inital activation pick up of GPS signal. Purchased the Garmin USA INLAND LAKES SD card - works great - now it is functional for land and sea and Auto, bike, and walking. Very good value - and about 25% of the price of a true BOAT GPS unit.
