A good buy
, October 4, 2011
This review is from: Garmin nüvi 50 5-inch Portable GPS Navigator(US) (Discontinued by Manufacturer) (Electronics)
I've been a happy Garmin customer for years, so when I needed a new basic GPS I decided to try their new 2012 line.
The Nüvi 50 is a basic GPS, and worked fine. Easy to use, big and readable screen, I did almost 2000 miles with it and I didn't got lost once. The operation is straightforward and Points of Interest worked fine and are really comprehensive.
At first I wasn't very happy on how the lane assist feature works, but after some time with it I got the hold of it. In fact, I drive better with that disabled, while in some circumstances it can be really helpful in other it adds too much distraction.
IMHO, an ideal GPS for people looking for a simple GPS that does the job.
