Summary: This GPS was very well done by Lowrance, who has beenn a leader in GPS techknowledgy for years. This GPS can go down the road and take you to your selected deestination, or you can just take it through the 2 tracks that you used to booze cruise as a kid, or take it out on the lake with you.
Summary: It is a good (GPS) unit, and a world wide, whether you are on air or in the sea, and land, always you can point your location by this small unit, no need to buy any additional maps and details. Where ever I go, and I'm in the world. And thats why I wanted it.*****
Summary: I love the size. It's small, so it doesn't distort or distract your view of the road. It also gives audio directions so that you don't have to stare at the unit while trying to drive. I wish it had come with an AC adapter, but it did come with a car charger.
Summary: This is my 3rd (and least expensive) automobile GPS. It is by far the best. On a recent trip a reunion group was given written directions to a classmate's home in a gated, remote location. Many lost their way.
Summary: Bought this unit at a Wholesale Distributor for $169.00, got more than I think I paid for. Unit comes fully charged which is wonderful, when you want to play with your new toy. I did not have any problems with the slow Satellite Acquisition here in Phoenix.
Summary: I have read previous reviews about this unit. However, I have mixed feelings about the issues with the signal acquiring time too slow, and puny CPU when calculating routes. Well, I purchased the unit for my wife's car, because the built in NAV for my car is very useful.
very nicely done with the important detalis included

Summary: We enjoyed the convenience of traveling with our Roadmate 500. When you arrive in a new city somewhere, you are tired and unfamiliar and no matter how much you love each other, getting lost on the way to the hotel is good for some cranky exchange.
