Summary: The i way 350 is a great GPS.I've had this For a week now and this is what I like.. 1. The screen is very bright and easy to read. 2.The touch screen is simple and works well,super easy to navigate.(while sitting parked of course!!). 3.The FM modular is abig bonus!!! it show's pictures too.. 4.I had to call lowrence to ask a question,it was after hours so i left a message.They actually called meee back the next day.wow,impressive customer service.... p.s.
Summary: It does as it says, easy to manage, I'd recommend it to others. Has a battery in case if you need to take it out of the car and I guess walk in the woods... never done it. Anyway... very good gps. enjoy.
Summary: A Small Unit, Looks Like A Small Tv, Can Download Music To SD Card And Play Thru Car Radio. Batteries Worked Great For About 4-Weeks, Not So Good After That. Will Call About Getting This Unit Repaired. Needed A 2nd GPS.
Summary: This is a solid, feature-rich unit at a great price. Used it on several long trips and it performed well. Satellite locking and overall operation have been improved with the latest free software version 1.2.0 (if you have an older version, upgrades are available at the Lowrance web site). Screen brightness and touch screen controls are top notch - better than many higher-end units.
Summary: My first GPS, did a lot of research, you get what you pay for. With rebate it cost me $[...], so what if it takes 3 minutes to find a signal on a 4 hour trip. If I'm starting from a known site, who cares if it takes 3 minutes, I usually know everything thats within 3 minutes. Circuit City had an excellent display of all major brands, and they all took within 30-45 seconds time of each other to lock on.
Summary: Despite what many reviewers have said, my iway 350 has been able to lock onto the satellites in less than a minute from powering on. And that is powering on from the poweroff position, not from the stand by mode (which they say would make the lock on to be even faster). I've had no problems with any route recalculations, it usually recalculates about 5 seconds after you miss an intersection and new directions are generated immediately.
Summary: This device makes navigating in Boston a painless experience. Pros: Excellent screen. Visible in bright sunlight. Highly configurable interface. Rapid re-routing after missing a turn. Cons: It reliably takes 5 minutes to obtain its position when first powered on. Overall: an excellent buy.
Summary: Installation: I mounted the 350C on a ZTechnik Spider Mount. I bolted the Lowrance plastic mount onto the ZTechnik plate after removing (severing) the flex arm using flathead countersunk machine screws. BIG MISTAKE. The unit would not stay powered for more than a couple of minutes, or the operating system would crash. I actually took the unit back to the store and exchanged it. The second one did the same thing.
