  • Summary: this gets me where i want to go and that is what counts with me, i remember the old days when you were driving and had a map in your hand trying to figure out where to go -- remember those old days well forget about them as this will take you where you want to go --- so far no problems, the biggest disappointment was that it didn't come with an instructual manual -- your going to have to go on line and print it out --- but be prepared for poor service and confusing...

  • Summary: I tried out the NUVI 50LM for the first time today, and it routed me all over the place, and mostly in the completely opposite direction of where I wanted to go. I had been to this destination before which is 26 miles southwest of my home. The NUVI kept trying to send me east to Pasadena, but I wanted to go southwest to Encino, CA. Because it was steering me in the wrong direction, the nagging from the GPS got more than a little bit irritating.

  • Summary: Just received it. Haven't even charged it yet. Don't know if it works or not. Too quick with your request. If I don't return it it means I am happy with it.

Price was right

  • Summary: This is not my first Garmin. The price was right. I don't like that lifetime maps means "only while units are in production". But that's how they all spell it out. I bought it for my wife. I use my iphone 90% of the time.

  • Summary: Like most modern GPS's this one is easy to use. The problem I have with this one is that it loses it's voice. Twice now, in the month I've owned it, it's lost it's speaking function. I've been able to get it back again both times, by resetting the unit. But to do that I first have to save my Favorite addresses, then reset it, then re-load my Favorite addresses to it again.

  • Summary: I got to use it for one day and it was fantastic but I noticed that some touch screen items were not entering easily. Today I needed to enter an address with an "l" in it and it wouldn't enter it for anything. That means I have to take it back, and yes I am going to try again because the screen and information was fantastic.

Less than thrilling

  • Summary: Bought this as a gift for my wife. Spent two hours trying to get it registered/updated using three different computers... was on the verge of packing it up to send back the next day when I got the idea to try one of MY cables... BINGO, there it was. Nuvi came with a defective USB cable. After that, the updating was very easy and quick and I put it in my truck to take it for a test drive over the next few days before giving it to my wife.
  • Pros: *Easy to use *Good volume and screen brightness
  • Cons: *Very problematic getting it set up *Inaccurate maps *Bad routing

  • Summary: I would have given this a higher rating except for not liking the voice giving directions. She says whatever is shown on the readout. For instance proceeding to Aberdeen Throughway, it says Aberdeen Thwy on the screen as an abbreviation, then the voice says "Turn left at Aberdeen Thwy" There is also a road near here called Pleasantwind.
