Nicely made, not a stand-out,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Garmin Universal 5-Inch Carrying Case (Electronics)
I bought this for my Garmin nuvi 2595 (5 inch screen). I realized it was a bit expensive but I thought why not buy a nice case made for the unit and not have to worry. Well, it isn't worth it. The unit is very snug inside the case, almost too snug. There isn't that much padding (it is not a hard shell case by any means) and for protection there is only elastic on the short sides, although the leather does overhang a bit. On the front side the leather is doubled when closed, but the back is only one thickness. It seems normal to put the unit in with the screen up, so that is where the better protection is. I think this case is fine if it then goes directly into a bag or purse. But I am not sure what would happen if it were dropped, probably OK, maybe not. Of course there is no storage for all of the other bits and pieces for the unit, which I prefer to have as I travel and plan to bring the unit along. I am looking for a better solution for storage and transport of my new GPS. It is some bother to return this one but I think it will be worth it. I have ordered the 'Lowepro 5.0 Navi Shield, Black' by Lowepro, found on Amazon. It looks like it will be a better overall solution...
But it isn't. It is well made and fits the GPS fine, but it is a bit crammed to get the cord and all the rest inside. Also, the suction cup piece does not fit, it is too high either way one puts it in, so closing the case causes some strain on the zipper.

Did you manage to glance at the picture of the product you were buying before you actually bought it? How did you come to the conclusion that the GPS accessories would fit inside this particular case? Your rating makes people wonder about you, not the product, and that is distracting and wasteful of others' time. Rate it for what it obviously is--a carrying case for the unit itself. Thanks!
