    5"Screen Major +++

    The Nuvii 50 was an upgrade for my older and still functioning Nuvii 360. It was time to upgrade the maps on the older unit and the cost of a new Nuvii on sale out weighted purchasing a map upgrade or spending a few more bucks to get a new unit on sale @ Wally World. The bigger screen is a major plus and it seems to respond much faster than the older unit. The only downside that I really had was loading the lifetime maps the first time..this takes almost 3-4 hours depending on the connection you have. My connection was via a wireless hotspot so it took a good 3 hours. So be forewarned when you go to load your maps the first it when you have some free time. After that you are done and its works amazingly fast and perfect. There are a few changes from the older Nuvii's that you have to get used too but the newer changes make it much simpler to operate. Overall I am overjoyed with my purchase and was extremely glad that Walmart carried this model since it did save me a few bucks in the long run.

    Simple to use, accurate most of the time

    I bought another model, the 40LM, but I had to write a review here after reading the complaints about the lack of Lifetime Maps. Duh? If the model number has LM after it, it comes with lifetime maps and a USB cable for updating. If it has a "t" in the model number, then it also comes with free traffic reports. Anyone who buys a product has the responsibility to do some basic research or shouldn't have a driver's license in the first place. Complaining that a GPS does not come with free lifetime map updates when it isn't advertised that way is like complaining that a 1 bedroom apartment doesn't have 2 bedrooms. Read the description!! Where does it say "comes with lifetime maps?" Anyway, for $69 this is a steal. I just got the 40LM and am thinking of exchanging it for this budget model. Maps don't change that much, although often points of interest do because businesses close or change location. Heck, I'm still using my 3.5" Nuvi 260 that I bought over 6 years ago and that cost me about $300 and it did not come with free map updates. In any case, no GPS is perfect, but a Garmin GPS is easy to use, speaks the street names, and usually lasts for years.

    Does not state RECALCULATING.

    This is a good unit and works perfectly right out of the box. Large screen. Easy menu. A good value for a US streets GPS. No lifetime map updates. Apparently no current/newer Garmins state the word RECALCULATING. Some/many must have complained to Garmin as this long time Garmin feature has been eliminated from all newer Garmins. Unit does recalculate route but does so silently. My extensive driving does require the spoken word RECALCULATNG if I do get off route. This is a feature that I require for my driving needs. Some do not care for this feature so this Garmin model would be fine. The potential problem of not verbally stating the word RECALCULATING is that you could be off route for many streets making all sorts of turns and not even know you are off route unless you physically look at unit while driving. And even then you may not know why you are making all of these turns. I returned this Garmin model 50 and purchased a Garmin Model 1490LMT that does state the word RECALCULATING. If verbal recalculating is not a concern of yours this will make a fine GPS purchase. Garmin 50 worked perfectly right out of the box.

    Good GPS for the money

    We bought this to replace a prior 3-year old Garmin, that started having trouble acquiring satellites. This one gets satellites fast. We like the split display when we are approaching a major highway exit, and it even shows what the exit sign looks like. On the negative side: the instruction booklet is small and has no words-- it's all pictures, and was not at all clear. At a minimum, a "getting started" in English would have been useful. We had to log onto the website from our computer to get info about the device. Someone in a review said the product did not come with a dashboard mount, so I ordered one when I ordered the device. But this was NOT true-- the device did come with a dashboard mount, so now I have to return it. What one might want to order to go with it is: a USB cable and carrying case.

    Beware of false Walmart advertising

    The local add said "includes lifetime maps". This model did not include lifetime maps, so I returned it on the same day I picked it up. I never used it, and can't really rate the product itself. Map updates cost almost as much as buying a new unit. I would never buy one without lifetime map updates again, so I wouldn't recommend this product to a friend.

    Missing one key component

    Unit comes with free lifetime map updates...but the box didn't include the cable one needs to connect the unit to your pc/laptop so you can get the map updates, and/or the "Dashboard", and/or the other features that are only available by connecting the unit to your pc and going online to Gamin. Was not informed/did not know that this key component was not included with the unit, and this cable is quite expensive. Unit works fine, but was quite frustrated to discover I'd have to make an additional cable purchase in order to get the "free" map updates - Garmin and WalMart, how is something "FREE" if I have to buy something to get it?????

    Garmin Nuvi 50 5" Portable GPS

    Purchased this GPS during Cyber Week and I have not regretted it since. I didn't need an instruction manual to get me using this GPS. It came partially charged, I just clicked on the start button and everything was just as simple as touching the screen and typing in information. I love the 5" screen! It came with an attachable mount which works perfect and I can position it just near my rear view mirror and take it off when I'm done. I appreciate all the information it gives me such as the speed limit, the amount of time it will take to get to my destination and the length in miles/feet til I'm there. Yes, I recommend it!

    No Lifetime Maps

    According to the Garmin website, there are no lifetime map updates for the Garmen nuvi 50 5". This may make a difference for this otherwise nice GPS.

    Best GPS out there.

    I had another brand previous to the Garmin. Truckers recommended it. If there were 2 streets close together you could take the wrong street. The Garmin in better because it verbally tells you the name of the street you should turn on. (Less chance of accidents)

    Could not be happier with this product!

    This review is for the Garmin Nuvi 50 which I purchased online on Cyber Monday from Walmart for $69.00. My wife and I could not be happier with this product. For us it is an updated 5 inch screen. At certain highway exits it turns into a split screen (right side showing a picture of the exit, signs and all). At certain intersections it even warns of traffic light cameras with a chime and small warning window. At most locations it shows you the current speed limit, the speed at which you are traveling at any given time, and shows your speed in RED if you are over the limit. A complete lengthy owners manual can be downloaded from Garmin online from their web site which I did. Since its' purchase I've ordered the friction (bean bag) dashboard mount and the leather side entry case specifically designed for the Garmin Nuvi 50 (also fits the Garmin Nuvi 50 LM with lifetime maps) from Amazon and couldn't be happier with those purchases also. My old Garmin Nuvi 200 still works flawlessly after four years which is why I stuck with a new Garmin GPS unit. By the way my wife wants to use it most of the time. Hope this helps if you're undecided. Gary
