Pros Very accurate maps and under normal circumstances a fast satellite connection. Good battery life. Interface is user friendly as well.
Cons Bad customer support.
Product has loading issues and will not load past the boot up screen about 1year after purchase and will only work unplugged.
I emailed customer service and they sent me directions to a website that did not work.
Summary Garmin typically makes good GPS receivers. However, I would recommend a different model than the nuvi 50 and perhaps a company that has better customer service
"Great product"on by JoeCollins929
Pros Screen is large enough to see even without my reading glasses, but doesn't get in the way of driver's line of vision.
Very easy to use.
I like that I can turn the volume off if I'm just using it for an ETA to my destination.
Cons Would prefer the charger connection to be either on the side or on the bottom. Having it in the back is inconvenient if you have to plug in while driving.
Summary I like the ease of use and that I have an option to take toll roads or back roads.
I use it a lot even when I know where I'm going just so I have an estimated time of arrival so I can let others know when I should be there.
"Great GPS Unit"on by drugh
Pros Big, Screen, Fast satellite tracking, very easy to use. Had a Tom Tom before had to throw it away. It told me I had arrived at my location white I was driving 75 mph on the freeway.
Cons None so far
Pros works well and accurate. clear directions and turn-by-turn. screen is easy to read when mounted on windshield
Cons defective hardware that will drive you nuts.
Summary The hardware itself crapped out for no apparent reason. It just froze in the opening "loading" screen and never went back to normal. No matter if it was restarted or plugged in/unplugged, it would never come back. Trying to sync it with computer failed. Customer Service was nice enough and is going to replace the unit, but for a simple, bare-bones unit under 1 year old, I would expect a little more longevity. Hopefully this is just a singularly faulty product, but as the only one I've purchased essentially died for no reason at all, I can't give it a good review.
Pros Very easy to use. It has saved me more than once.
I think the price is very fair.
Cons Doesn't take into account road construction, won't take no for an answer.
