  • Pros: Large, bright display.
  • Cons: Very difficult to contact Service when needed. Flat rate repair which is $520.00 Canadian, more than I paid for my iWay 500C.

"Poor Product"

Arc21, CNET
20 January 2009
  • Pros: Can not find any.
  • Cons: Cheap quality, graphics aren't as sharp as Garmins/Tom Tom, and average wait time for customer service. I called when it opened and still have to wait 20 minutes. Can you imagine noon time? Get the popcorn ready.

"nice screen options, expensive and dies early"

netneutrality, CNET
21 September 2008
  • Pros: large touch screen, plenty of search & save options, upload music
  • Cons: heavy & bulky, gets very hot, poor audio, touch screen stopped working just before warranty expired (despite minimal use & stored indoors when not in use). Takes a long time (up to 30 min) to "warm up" even if used on consecutive days.

Lowrance iWay 500C

9 June 2008
  • Summary: A friend let me borrow his last fall for a trip through Vermont and New Hampshire. I was amazed at the roads this baby picked up. I mean, out of the way, top of the mountain, dirt roads. And with a touch of a button, you tell it to take you back to the main highway and you're off.

Lowrance iWay 500C

LonnieC.Ferrel l, Rate it all!
9 April 2008
  • Summary: I purchased the Lowrance iWAY 500c as a birthday present for my directionally challenged wife. Her mother has a Garmin Nuvi that my wife had been using and loving while on vacation in Florida. I purchased the Lowrance after looking at reviews on CNET, which rated the unit as the second best on the market and above the Garmin. After receiving the unit, I have been extremely dissapointed.
