Good value, but not without hiccups

I. Lipner "chicagoanindc", Amazon

  • Summary: Overall, I'd say I'm satisfied with my iWay, but not thrilled. I've had it for over a year now, and I've noticed a few quirks, some major, some minor. But when it works, it works. One problem is that it often takes over 3 minutes for the unit to start navigating, and in areas with large buildings, it can be nearly impossible to get the proper signal strength to orient itself for the first time with the satellites.

Lowrance iWay 350C

  • Summary: I agree with the reviewer who said the iWay is not without faults but a good GPS for the price. I've used the iWay 350C in my car for over a year now. I purchased it after briefly using the in-dash nav system in a loaner car while mine was being serviced. I've also recently compared the iWay with a cell-phone navigation option (TeleNav version 3.6 on a Motorola cell phone). Prior to these I used maps generated by Yahoo!

Good but need improvement

  • Summary: I used it for 2 months. In general, it does work but it does not take into consider highway. I guess it is trying to take you the shortet route. Sometime you have to drive around & around to get to get to the shortest distance. Also I still have not yet to enter the address using route 1 (us-1: highway, local...). It is still too slow to find your current location. I normally get in the car and go.

REVIEW OF LOWRANCE

Benjamin R. Katz "PILOTBEN", Amazon

  • Summary: PRODUCT WAS VERY DISAPPOINTING WHEN IT WORKED, IT WORKED WELL UNFORTUNATELY, IT DIDN'T WORK VERY LONG. I JUST SENT THE REPLACEMENT UNIT I GOT FROM THE FACTORY BACK TO THE FACTORY. HOPEFULLY, THE NEXT UNIT WILL WORK BETTER.

Lowrance iWay 350C GPS

Edward R. Peters, Amazon

  • Summary: I had trouble programming this touch screen unit. I thought it was my inexperience with touch screens, but it must have been a defective unit because it started blowing fuses. It was returned for repair. Lowrance sent a new unit that appears to be functioning properly. My gripe is that their instruction manual is not easy to follow. You waste a lot of time going from menu to menu trying to understand their various functions.

  • Summary: Easy to use, bright display and easy to read, even in the daylight. But the suction cup never work, most only stick on windshield around 2mins, then drop. I tried on 2 difference car's windshield, and difference section of each windshield(of course I cleaned the windshield first). Don't know if the suction cup defect, Sent email to custom service ask for replace, hope they reply.(will update later) Update: got a new suction cup mount from Lowrance, it work fine now!

dissappointed

  • Summary: This system lies in its specs: it says it can avoid interstates. this is blatant lie. It will always put you on interstate if route is shortest, it will even mae you do a u-turn to get on interstate even if you slide it to avoid. no update for 350c but for 500c says that they dont care about those who spent a little less. company updates to little, they say you can update maps and poi but they rarely do, even when new streets and buildings added eevry day.
