Garmin with backup camera hookup

John Lundberg, Amazon
25 May 2014
  • Summary: Have had one of these for 7 years until one day it just decided to die. Found a used one and it works great. Not to many of these out there where you can plug in a backup camera. Hope this one will last 7 years.

Display was so dim it could not be seen in daylight

P Patch, Amazon
9 April 2014
  • Summary: Nuvi came without any suction cup to attach it. The display even when turn up to 100% was NOT readable, it was so DIM that in day light hardly make out that the display was turned on.Which makes the unit completely useless for any driving application. When Nuvi was Plugged in to power supply unit made loud humming noise. Returned it for refund.

Great for being a used product

Muscle Geek, Amazon
22 September 2013
  • Summary: My original went dead. Garmin doesn't make these anymore so finding one in this conditions for the price was awesome. I have this custom installed on my truck. I'm glad this was available. I didn't want to have to recustomize my truck for a different model. Thanks.

Weak GPS....and can't be updated much

Jeff T., Amazon
27 September 2011
  • Summary: Bought this to replace a Lowrance...ooppss....bad choice - weak antennas in this Garmin series means plunking down $30 for an external antenna just to get a signal. No battery.....and now I am attempting my second map update in 2 years....and it says NOPE - not enough space on device. So much for lifetime map updates. Hey Garmin, if I wanted music on my GPS, I would have bought an iPod (oh, wait, I did....so why do I need music on my GPS - right, I don't).

Rear camera hooked-up but rear view isdelayed

lyn boland, Amazon
19 April 2011
  • Summary: Bought this model for larger screen and rear view hook camera up. The hook up to a Boyo camera was very difficult, as the Boyo plug in different from the female input on the nuvi. Eventually had to craft a plug. Also, the Garmin has to go through all its warm up before it will let the rear view camera to get onto the screen. Takes too long. Somewhat disappointing, but not terrible.

3rd purchase of the Nuvi 5000

Lance10 "Lance10", Amazon
11 March 2011
  • Summary: After having purchased 3 of these Nuvi 5000's, I'm impressed that it just simply works. Big screen, great features (bluetooth, nah) and it does what it says it's supposed to do. Bought one for a friend's daughter who has dropped it about 50 times in the house, no guess on how many times at college... AND, it still works. Durable, not buggy like other models I've used and pretty cheap for a 5.2 inch screen.

My Garmin Nunvi 5000

harrym, Amazon
20 February 2011
  • Summary: The Nuvi 5000 works well and I like the larger 5" screen. The main reason I chose this model is that mfg says it will work w/ existing backup camera.
