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.
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.
Summary: I hate this GPS. It got me lost in the boonies more than once, it takes forever to get satellite signal, maps are extremely hard to read while driving, having to use the stylus is really inconvenient.
Summary: I have used my iWay 500C for the last two years and believe that I have gotten pretty good use out of it, but there have been some serious issues:
1. I bought this unit because it was waterproof and rugged (I mounted it on my motorcycle as well as used it in my car).
Summary: Our unit died just before the warranty was up, I sent it back ($50 because of weight and insurance). They sent me a refurbished one, didn't work. I sent it back (on their dime). They sent me another refurbished one; it stopped working after two hours. I sent it back; they sent me a new 600C.
