Summary: Once you get past the size and weight of this unit, it is without a doubt a pleasure to own. Always accurate, and relatively easy to use. The weight is a little cumbersome, but it makes up for it. I give it a 8 out of 10.
Summary: I bought the Iway 500c navigation system because of knowledge of the product. I work for a major truck manufacter. We install them in Class 8 trucks for over the road drivers etc. After using one I realized this was the system that I wanted for my personal use and travels. Easy to operate,program with info and music also.
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: After the Lowrance iWay 500C I had used for more than three years on my 2004 Goldwing decided to give up the ghost I checked into repairing it. Due to an unfortunate hard shock (I dropped it taking it off the bike) the touch screen would not calibrate. Repairing it would be a flat-rate $200 - and I would still have a 3+ year-old device that was past its warranty. I decided to shop for a new GPS. I really liked the features of the iWay.
Summary: I originally bought the Lowrance iWay 500c several years ago and consider it one of the best products of its kind. Unfortunately it was stolen from my car a few months ago (don't leave it on your dashboard when in a parking lot). So I decided to by another one on Ebay. I believe it is an extremely well built unit but I especially like the larger size of the screen, its brightness as well as the many features it offers for finding addresses and points of interest.
excellent product its great to do business with them
