Lowrance iWay 350C

ras9428, Rate it all!

  • Summary: I have had this unit for three years. When going to an address it would do a good job of giving me the best route. When entering addresses, it was not at all intuitive. It could not seem to find many of the addresses I entered. While entering addresses, I would have to press a letter more than once to get it to register. This became worse with time. The unit's power button did not always work. I would have to unplug it from it's power source to shut it down.

  • Summary: ok so right out of the box it didn't work. i dunno if this is an isolated thing, but the first time i calculated a route it gave me a route that took 1400 miles to go what usually takes me 40 miles...ya a difference of over a thousand miles....told me it would take me days to go what usually takes me less than an hour...after that it just stops working all together and now iv got a blank screen with an arrow on it..it doesnt give me any menus or maps..

Poor Navigation Database

G. Edwards, Amazon
22 September 2007
  • Summary: This unit has lots of bells and whistles--like an MP3 player, FM modulator and photo displayer. However, it is quirky about basic navigation. Here's what I learned after completing a multi-day 1500 mile trip: 1. Initialy the unit kept telling me, randomly, to turn right. 2. After 800 miles or so, still during the same trip, it started advising me, randomly, to turn left. It continued to advise left turns, even after arriving at my destination. 3.

Lowrance iWay 350C

JOHNLXII, Rate it all!
2 July 2007
  • Summary: Nice unit for a car, but it won't work on a bike. A little slow, but not bad especially for that price. I bought one for my motorcycle, but it shut itself off within 15 minutes. I called Lowrance and they thought it was a battery problem, so I sent it back (Amazon was amazingly cooperative; Great Customer service!!!). I tested the new one in my truck and it worked great, but 10 minutes in the motorcycle mount and it shut down again.

Lowrance iWay 350 gps

D. Hickman, Amazon
25 January 2007
  • Summary: Unit works well but the manual shipped with the unit was for the older software. I checked the Lowrance web site for an updated manual but there wasn't one. The differences in the new software took a while to figure out. If a correct manual were available I would have rated the unit 4 stars.

How to get lost! Over..

TybeeSnoop "Tybee Bob", Amazon
1 August 2006
  • Summary: The 350C is well packaged with almost current programming. It only got me lost eleven (11) times on a 865 mile trip:All cities in Georgia - Tybee Island to Pine Mountain to Newnan to Stone Mountain and return to Tybee Island. (I packed and returned the unit the day after getting home.) It may suit others well, but I can not rely on the unit. Four of the eleven lost episodes were because newly constructed highways were not recognized.

Three Units in Three Weeks!

Aaron B., Amazon
31 July 2006
  • Summary: I bought this unit on a wim. I was leaving for a business trip and needed a GPS. I really like it and it worked well for me. Unfortunalty the unit wouldn't hold a charge on the battery. So I returned it for another one. It worked for one week and then I had the same exact problem. Which to me is not a good sign of quality when the same problem happens on multiple units.

Great product...shame it does not work

Palio "innocent byrunner", Amazon
26 July 2006
  • Summary: I did my research for an automotive GPS unit and ended up with the iWay 350c because it had way more features than similarly priced units, or was half the price of units with similar features (however you want to see it). The unit worked flawlessly for exactly 3 days. The GPS was pretty accurate (within 200ft), the FM modulator was very clear, and the MP3 player worked fine. I was on the road for those 3 days so I really got to enjoy it.
