Edition: 5-Inch Base Model
I've been using GPS units for over a decade. My first unit was a Magellan hiking oriented unit. I ditched it after two weeks and got a Garmin hiking unit that lasted me 6 years. The UI was much better, and Garmin really seems to pay attention to that. When the Nuvi wide screen units came out, that was the price performance price to get me into a unit oriented for driving. I've had both the 200w and the 255w. The 200w was good. The 255w had subtle UI improvements such as the speed limit display.

The new Garmin 50 beats them hands down. It's larger, and for less money than the others when they were new. The 5" display makes a huge difference. In addition to the larger display, almost everything about the maps details, fonts for text info, icons and symbols all seem larger, beyond just scaling up for screen size. Everything is much easier to read at a quick glance. The bootup is much faster. The first couple of times, there's a rather annoying license click-through, but it goes away after that. It hasn't been back. There's a "safety mode" which tries to tell you what a bad idea changing settings while driving is. It's easy to override, and easy to turn off.

Lane assist! It works... Sometimes it's timing is a little off... If it triggers too early you can end up in a "disappearing lane". Too late, and it can be tough to get into the correct lane in time, so this feature isn't an easy one to get right. It's still a big help.

When approaching a critical intersection, the screen splits, and a "street view" of the intersection appears. A cartoon depiction. I was worried that this would be disconcerting. But it's not. It works. It's helpful. BTW, this size screen in a motorcycle-toughened unit would be FABULOUS. Just my view.

Edition: 5-Inch with Lifetime Maps Verified Purchase
The menus are very simple and easy to understand. Navigation is accurate. 5" display is plenty big enough. Reception is great. One thing I would change is the voice option. There are 2 voices. The standard voice is a bit muddled and speaks street names. The other voice is much clearer but DOESN'T speak street names. I think you can download more voices online but I haven't tried that yet. Overall the GPS is well worth the 179 we paid.

UPDATE: I don't care for the lack of street names on the screen. My old garmin gps shows all the street names. This one only shows half of them even if i'm zoomed in or out. I need to know what street I'm on! See photo I uploaded.

Edition: 5-Inch Base Model Verified Purchase
I've never been impressed by Garmin's product documentation but now they've just given up completely. There's no documentation for this GPS system other than some extremely small HTML pages built into the product that simply state the obvious for the most part. Now for the stupid part - the system ships in demo mode which means it still won't turn on. The GPS simulator is turned off and when you find the screen that let's you turn it back on, it won't work. Because there's no documentation, there's no way to know how to get it out of demo mode.

This is what you do...
Start by charging the unit for an hour or so because the battery is probably empty.
Turn the unit on by pressing the button at the top, left corner.
At the main page press View Map
Press the speed readout in the bottom right corner
Press and hold the Speedometer until the debug screen shows (10 seconds)
Select Demo Mode
Click Disable Demo Mode
Return to the debug screen
Select GPS Simulator Mode
Select Off and click OK

Piece of cake, right?

This GPS is 100 times better than my old GPS, the Garmin 750! Everything is a lot quicker now from finding satellites to scrolling on the screen. Plus, there's a whole bunch of great new features. Some examples are how it now tells you which lane to be in so you don't have to guess, the screen refreshes faster so it's easier to actually tell when to turn, the junction view is pretty handy, and apparently it shows you speed traps and red light cameras! Definitely a great buy.

Edition: 5-Inch with Lifetime Maps
UPDATE 4/4/2014: After a recent map update, the GPS could not find any destination in Florida. I've lost confidence in its reliability, and would NOT buy it again nor recommend it.

ORIGINAL REVIEW: Full disclosure: this is my FIRST GPS. Purchased thru Amazon 12/2/11. I had never used one before, but this seems to be working quite well. For a newbie, it seems very easy to use. The manual is well-written and helpful, but mostly I just poked around on the touch-screen interface and figured it out.

It has never failed to get me where I'm going, but I don't always agree with its routing solutions. When I'm leaving Charlotte, NC, it plots a route to the Interstate that I as a long-time resident here wouldn't use. Passing through Greensboro, it always tries to route me through the business route instead of the bypass. When I ignore the directions and take the bypass, it recalculates the route quickly, however, and adapts.

I have the most recent maps (I have downloaded the update and checked for further updates regularly), but there are some newer streets in Charlotte it still doesn't know about.

When selecting a route to a store, it doesn't always choose the nearest store; it may not know about all of them. It also gave me directions to a restaurant which has been closed for years. I reported this to Garmin.

The suction-cup mount only worked for about a week, then would only stay in position for about 30 seconds. It's such a poorly-designed mount, I wish they wouldn't even ship it with the GPS. I replaced it with a weighted friction mount sold here at Amazon (Garmin Portable Friction Mount - Frustration Free Packaging), which works VERY well! My recommendation would be to order the friction mount along with the GPS, and don't ever bother with the suction cup thingie.
