Summary: Buyers beware of purchasing any Lowrance aviation gps. They have ceased support for all of their units with database updates effective as of last summer. And if you try to contact them via email or by phone about this, you will either get lied to or will receive no response at all.
Summary: Buyer beware. Lowrance no longer supports the Iway 500C or 600C in any way. No repair or repair parts are available. Lowrance no longer supports software updates and there is no more map updates past Q1 2010. You can no longer get the main power cable/speaker to plug into the lighter outlet to power the unit. In it's day it was a great unit but when it fails you have to toss it in the trash.
Summary: Be careful if you want to buy Lowrance IWAY 600C or 500c on Ebay without power cord.First no way you can test,second you can not find the cord anywhere.I pay $170 for a used 600c and order the cord from LEI Extras 5 weeks has gone by and still waiting any body can help me to find it
Summary: Yes, it's big. Yes, it's heavy. Yes, it <was> a good GPS when it worked. Hold on to your #@%$ if it malfunctions. The iway 600C has a hard drive like your computer does. I owned mine for about 1-1/2 years and then it all of a sudden came up with a "boot fail" error. Plan on an hour on hold waiting for someone from Lowrance support to discuss the problem. You think I am kidding, just give it a try before you buy one.
Summary: The touch screen is very, very tempermental! Sometimes it works, sometimes you have to hit the screen multiple times. The mp3 player is horrible! Sometimes it plays through the radio ok, other time all you can hear is some scratching sounds. I will send it back to the factory for adjustment. I hope they fix it or replace it. I will never, ever buy a Lowrance product again!!!
Summary: Thank you for your business, recently I purcharsed 2 GPS by mistake, and returned one, I have to pay for almost 20% restock fee, and I have an exprience with you on behave of communication, by email, and telephone, can't get the support. Therefor, I just want to let you know I wasn't happy with your serices.
