Garmin Nuvi 50LM GPS
Thoughtful Mother's Day Gift
Over the years, this 81 year old great grandmother earned the reputation of always "taking the scenic route". (translation .getting lost). Since I was given the Garmin, I find my way with no problems, even when I take wrong turns, it just "recalculates". I have used it both driving and walking all over Canada. It adjusts easily for any area and the maps are right on. Love it.

I just bought this from Canadian Tire at Clearance for $84 +tax. It is a Fantastic unit! Great big screen and the touch screen is smooth. Maps and directions are clear and accurate. I Highly recommend it!

Exchanged twice ...
After working about two weeks, my GPS freezes and don't let you to navigate. Exchanged for second one and the same problem happened after a few days. Exchanged second time and was fine for a week. Now I have another problem, GPS does't turn on...

Just recently got this GPS system (used) from my Dad for my new car. It may be older, but it works wonderfully. I love that I can look up restaurants/shopping centres around wherever I may be.

Like this one!
Purchased the unit in July and went on line to buy maps of Asia, where I travel frequently. It works great here, but some faeutures are not available here. The maps of China are up to date and in english!!!! Threw out my old GPS which only worked here in chinese!

Quality, but with flaws
The product performs adequately, the grammar of basic words is flawed. "Dunlop" is pronounced "DUNlop", not dunLOP as the product does. There are many such errors. It surprises me as this is not the first Garmin GPS I've owned and the first one did not have this flaw.

Not what I expected
Bought it on sale and returned it two days later. After charging the unit I entered my Home location and 10 different locations on a road trip that I will soon be taking. When I checked them the next day, all were gone from my Favourites List. The device ignored my setting changes when I adjusted the Volume and Brightness settings. It also kept taking me back to the three different 'Garmin' offices around the world. I probably got a defective unit. I returned it with no problem from Canadian Tire. My first experience with a GPS unit was very frustrating to say the least.

Awesome GPS Unit
I picked up this unit on sale and couldn't be happier. It works exactly like its supposed to - quite easy to learn and very easy to download the software for updating the maps. We used it on a long road trip and it never steered us wrong. It worked great setting destinations on the fly as well. The 5" screen is very easy to read and is nice and bright even in the middle of the day. The only drawback is the rechargeable battery doesn't hold a charge for much more than an hour or so, so make sure you have the cigarette lighter adapter on hand on your road trips. Otherwise, this is a fantastic little unit!
