PC Magazine

  • Conclusion: This new navigator from Garmin boasts a sprawling 5.2-inch widescreen display. But you'll pay a premium for it, and give up some other key features as well.
  • Pros: Large, auto-dimming screen. Multisegment routing. Text-to-speech conversion. Video input for a backup camera.
  • Cons: Lacks Bluetooth phone interface, integrated traffic receiver. No battery.

Garmin Nuvi 5000

10 December 2009
  • Summary: It might be perfect for truck drivers, but the 5.2-inch Garmin 5000 is a bit too big for us car-bound road denizens. And the lack of Bluetooth hands-free, lane guidance and junction view condemns it to also-ran status.
  • Pros: Lots of lovely pixels, Plays music straight from an SD card, Excellent FM transmitter, Big 5.2-inch screen
  • Cons: Too big unless you're truck-bound, Bluetooth, lane guidance, junction view all AWOL
