Top Customer Reviews
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.
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.
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?
