It's also compatible with FM traffic alerts or MSN Direct content (receiver and subscription required). It comes with Garmin Lock (an anti-theft feature) and configurable vehicle icons that let you select car-shaped graphics to show your location on the map.

    Clearly, the display is the main differentiator of the nüvi  5000. With nüvi 5000's large, clear display, you won’t miss a thing. View map detail, driving directions, photos, play games and more in bright, brilliant color. Its sunlight-readable, 5.2-inch display is easy to read and gives you an extended view of your surroundings. nüvi 5000 also includes a composite video input so you can connect it to a rear-view camera for backing up safely.

    Multi-Destination Routing
    This lets you enter several spots into the device (day care - supermarket-cleaners - office - day care, for example) and it will plot the fastest route. And once you've found the best router, the "Route Planning" feature lets you save up to 10 different routes, Garmin touts the feature for providing, "the most efficient route for errands, deliveries and sales calls." The feature also makes this an instant essential accessory for anyone who shops garage sales (you know what we're talking about).

    A trip log provides an electronic bread crumb trail of up to 10,000 points, so you can see where you've been on the map.

    Where Am I?
    Garmin's "Where Am I?" feature is a useful safety feature on all nüvis, but voice recognition makes it even better.

    On any nüvi (including this one), you can just tap "Where Am I?" to find the closest hospitals, police stations, fuel stations, nearest address and intersection. Also see your exact latitude and longitude coordinates. With the 800s, all you have to do is say "Where am I?" to get the info.

    First Rate Map Data
    Comes ready to go right out of the box with preloaded City Navigator NT street maps, including a hefty POI database with hotels, restaurants, fuel, ATMs and more. Simply touch the color screen to enter a destination, and nüvi takes you there with 2D or 3D maps and turn-by-turn voice directions. Garmin gets its map data from NAVTEQ, a world leader in premium-quality mapping.

    In addition, nüvi accepts custom points of interest (POIs), such as school zones and safety cameras and lets you set proximity alerts to warn you of upcoming POIs

    Important note about map updates: Due to our high volume of sales, almost every Garmin portable GPS navigator sold by Amazon.com will come with the most recent map version. If you ever do need a map update, you can purchase one from Amazon.com at our Garmin Store.

    All Garmin nüvis support configurable vehicle icons. These fun, customized car-shaped icons come in a variety of colors to add a personal touch to your vehicle's position on the map.

    With this GPS system on board you'll be prepared to steer clear of traffic with the integrated FM TMC traffic receiver. The nüvi 770 is designed to receive alerts about traffic tie-ups and road construction that might lie ahead on your route. All you have to do is simply touch the screen to view traffic details and you'll be ready to detour around any problem area. And if you end up missing a turn, or you're forced into a detour that is not relayed through the traffic receiver, the nüvi's sophisticated automatic routing will get you back on track in no time.

    By J. Barta on July 3, 2008
    Package Type: Standard Packaging Verified Purchase
    First, I would like to say that I really like my Garmin nuvi 5000. It is the first GPS unit I have ever owned. It is very easy to use and the large screen is very visible in all light levels. However, there are three areas where I feel the unit falls short. First, it needs a rechargeable internal battery that would allow it to be used disconnected from the automobile, even if only for a short period of time. The battery life would be extendable by having a way to switch off the screen and allowing the unit continue to operate. Second, the unit needs a better manual that goes more detail about the working of the unit. For example, it tells you how to add favorites locations to your unit's memory, but it does not tell you how many locations you can have, nor does it tell you if an SD card will add space for more. The third and biggest problem with this unit is the lack of a good internal antenna. My experience has shown that the unit is not very good at acquiring satellites as it is designed. I have experienced the following problems using the unit mounted on the beanbag holder (Garmin's Portable Friction Dashboard Mount) on my car's dashboard: When parked in my driveway with a clear overhead view, it can take more then 2-3 minutes to acquire a good signal lock; Pulling out of my garage and driving down suburban roads at less then 40 miles per hour, it has taken more than 10 minutes to get a good lock on the satellites; Once when driving down an Interstate highway with a wide open sky view, the unit lost signal and took several minutes to re-acquire the satellites; and at other times it has showed it poor design of the internal antenna. To try to solve this problem, I purchased the external Garmin antenna.Read more ›

    The main reason I purchased this unit was that I really liked our older Nuvi but I wanted a newer unit with a video input for a reverse backup camera.

    The problem with this unit is that the very first time it goes to switch to the video input after the unit is powered on, even if you have auto switch on for the video input, the unit is going to stop you with a nagging disclaimer screen that you MUST agree to. You have to touch the screen. It won't go away after a short delay like the first nag screen does. Plus it takes quite some time before you even get there since you have to wait for the unit to "start up". Seems kind of funny that the disclaimer is that you shouldn't watch video while driving. Isn't the whole point of a backup camera to be able to look at it to make sure you don't run into something? There's no way around the nag screen without touching the unit except to just wire the unit to be always on.

    Even more confusing is that the video input setting has a mode for reverse camera but if you set it to this mode (instead of dvd), then it will ask you if you want to change EVERY SINGLE TIME!!!

    UPDATE 1) Called Garmin Support, after "researching" it, they told me that that was it, and that's how it worked, and there was no way to get rid of the video warning screen.

    UPDATE 2) Checked the unit's firmware and was amazed to see a really old version on there. Downloaded the latest firmware and the problem is SOLVED!! Now the backup camera mode works properly and it NEVER prompts you. Not even a delayed warning after power-on. You still need to wait for the unit to boot and it does take a while but as soon as it does, it immediately switches over to the video input. I do wish it could switch over even faster at unit power on.

    I am a long time owner of the Garmin StreetPilot 2720 and bought the NUVI 5000 for the larger screen. The larger screen is great but, it's performance is poor. A lot of the time routing is just bad, routing me in circles. Sometimes it tries to route me via an old destination. The POI function, even with the "On current route" feature shows POIs behind me and far off route.

    I am a Garmin fan but, I regret this purchase.

    Update: After more problems, mostly lockups and failure to draw screen (map display), Garmin replaced the unit. Unfortunately, the problems with poor routing continued. I have had one lock up with the new unit. Also, false alerts about safety camers started to appear.

    We are in the middle of a 5,000 mile trip out west and this unit is unreliable and disappointing.

    I regularly ride in a friend's shiny new 2009 Porsche and I have to say, their GPS sucks by comparison! You'd think a $100k+ sports car would have a killer GPS -- NOT! The maps were sparse, the colors muted, the speech barely audible and the user interface convoluted and unintuitive. Now I know Porsche's primary concern is the car, not the GPS, but for a top dollar luxury product, you'd think their GPS would be equally cutting edge. I honestly prefer my Garmin Nuvi 5000. The difference is stark! Its no wonder Garmin is widely considered to make the best GPS units on the market.

    I zeroed in on the Nuvi 5000 primarily because of the larger screen and that it's one of the few GPS units to support a backup camera. For those of you who don't know, a backup camera is a tiny video camera (mine is the size of a dime) that mounts on the back of your car, often the license plate, with a video cable run to a monitor or GPS mounted on the dash. Then when you put your car in reverse, the cam turns on and you get a live video image of what's behind your car! Very helpful when parallel parking or backing up and you see so much more than with a rearview mirror alone! It's one of those things that once you have it, you wonder why it took so long or how you ever lived without it!

    Backup cams aren't just for big SUVs or trucks. I have mine on a sedan and really love the extra perspective it gives. It's such a luxury to be able to SEE everything with no blind spots!!! LOVE it!!! As more cars come standard with GPS units, I could see backup cams becoming standard issue. It's so much safer to backup with the extra visibility and virtually no blind spots!

    Setup was easy. I got a vent mount for the Nuvi itself since windshield mounts are illegal in California.
