Not Impressed

S. Wuest, Amazon
26 April 2008
  • Summary: I have had this unit for about 9 months. It is relatively easy to see and the interface works well. It generally gives pretty good directions, but (and this is huge) in October of 2007 we needed to get to Indianapolis airport from the Cincinnati area.

Lowrance Failed The Test

Robert C. Mount, Amazon
31 July 2007
  • Summary: I had seen the Garmin StreetPilot c330 in operation but purchased the Lowrance iWay 250c because the literature indicated it offered the same features at a lower cost. I was wrong and returned the unit. I found the Lowrance to be difficult to use.

Save Your Money

L. Ennis, Amazon
23 July 2007
  • Summary: My wife and I were interested in purchasing a navigation system, but did not want to spend $500+ for some of the higher end systems that we had seen in the stores. I ordered the Lowrance iWay 250C Multimedia GPS Portable Navigation System after reading several favorable reviews on the internet.

It gets lost.

T. L. Cleveland "Tom", Amazon
11 July 2007
  • Summary: I recently purchased the iWay 250C and attempted to plot a trip to my son's home in Jacksonville, NC. Even thought his street and address have been in effect longer than 5 years, the iWay said it did not exist. I had to call him to get his personal latitude and longitude to locate him.

Not Satisfied with my first GPS

Eric "Eric", Amazon
10 July 2007
  • Summary: This is my first GPS and I bought it for curiousity since my wife is the best GPS for me. Out of the box, it is perfect look. That evening we went out for dinner and then go to Target using the GPS for nevigation. It is not bad at all, but gave me different route that I used to drive on.

Worthless

  • Summary: Takes 15 min to never to lock onto a position. Map includes addresses that don't exist. Try to contact company for technical assistance? Forget it - impossible. Latest recording was "Sorry we can't help now due to inclement weather or we're in a meeting. Try later".

Barely - but barely - satisfactory

RoadRunner "RoadRunner", Amazon
16 April 2007
  • Summary: Graphics aren't bad, maps are fairly accurate and the same goes for the turn-by-turn instuctions. There are, however, a LOT of flies in the ointment: First and foremost - very week ability to detect satellites.
