Summary: For the price, it's a great unit --- tried it out over the Thanksgivivng holiday across 3 states. Lost the satellites once on I-95, and had to restart the unit, but it found the route already entered and continued on.
Summary: The nuvi5000 works great. The thing that I'm not happy with is that it does not have an internal battery. After trying everything that I could think of to turn it on,when out of the cradle, I called garmin and was told about there being no internal battery.
Summary: The nuvi 5000's display is great. Big is good, and it does not obstruct the windshield view much at all, as most of the mount is hidden behind the GPS. I didn't realize until after I received it that Garmin intends the 5000 for use in RVs.
Summary: Bought this Unit more than 3 months back. Overall unit was great & it has many features. The wide screen is very good & makes it easy to navigate.

Summary: We love our Germin 5000. It has a large screen that I can read easily from the drivers seat. I bought a generic cigarette lighter AC adapter so I can bring it into the house to program addresses.
Summary: I just got the Nuvi 5000 a couple of months ago and have used it in my home city and on a recent vacation in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and Northern Wisconsin. Didn't miss a beat. Found addresses on rural roads and always pointed me to the nearest gas station or grocery.
Summary: The main reason I purchased this unit was that I really liked our older Nuvi but I wanted a newer unit with a video input for a reverse backup camera. The problem with this unit is that the very first time it goes to switch to the video input after the unit is powered on, even if you have auto...
Summary: Pros: Bright larger Screen, Waypoints, Rear Camera Option, 3D View Cons: No built-in battery, No Bluetooth Summary: I am almost satisfied with the GPS. The large screen is just about perfect sizing for me. The touchscreen is easy to use and the menu is very user friendly.
Summary: For those older users who want a larger image like the factory installed versions, the Garmin Nuvi 5000 5.2 inch screen has 4 times as many pixels than the 4.3 inch versions for greater resolution and better visibility.
