The pocket-sized Garmin nüvi 5000 gives you turn-by-turn voice directions with spoken street names and a huge full-color screen, so it’s easy to stay on course! The nüvi mounts quickly in your RV, truck, or SUV, and pops off with a gentle tug, so you can take it with you. When you need to make multiple stops, the nüvi 5000 lets you enter all your destinations, then organizes them for you, so you can save time and gas by driving to them in the most efficient order.

The built-in FM transmitter lets your nüvi broadcast directions or play MP3 music out through your car stereo. The composite video input allows you to view feed from a rear-view camera on the nüvi’s display.

The unit ships with preloaded City Navigator NT maps, and includes a huge database of Points of Interest (POI), like truck and rest stops, restaurants, campgrounds, and shopping. The nüvi 5000 uses a high-sensitivity GPS receiver to pinpoint your location to within 10 feet. The Garmin nüvi 5000 offers all the flexibility you need to make your travels much easier!

3 out of 5 eggsGood Not Great

Pros: Large bright screen, great POI database, automatic screen brightness, multiple map displays 3D and flat, good point to point directions, compact size for having large screen display, good sound from 2 speakers, finds GPS satellites quickly.

Cons: Major flaw is the speed limit feature which takes up 5% of the map space, is often incorrect, extremely annoying because if its size and brightness (white) and cannot be turned off, screen very reflective in daylight, no battery, touch screen not very responsive even after calibration, only suction cup mount, no AC plug included, cannot be used off of USB power, no on-off switch.

Other Thoughts: Garmin could have made this an outstanding GPS but chose to cut corners. They did not include a battery but then this unit isn't really portable. It would have prevented it from rebooting every time the car was restarted. The most annoying feature is the speed limit display which is fixed and cannot be removed. This large white box on the left map display is much too big and should be transparent, a simple number in a small box and user selectable. Its an annoying overly bright white box when the map display goes into night mode. My experience shows that as speed limits change on secondary roads, this GPS does not display the correct value.
The GPS does boot up quickly and find satellites fast in about 1 minute and I have yet to see it lose that connection (Ver. 4.0 firmware). It recalculates fast when you deviate from the stated route and does not force U turns. The display is sharp and bright and the automatic brightness feature works well.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat system

Pros: big easy to read display. changes screen color scheme when it is dark out so that you can still see clearly, but is not so bright as to hurt your night vision. Plays MP3s through your car radio. Great system even if it is a bit pricey. Haven't found a place that I couldn't find with it yet, including my sisters house, which she tells me many systems can't find. Also when you miss a turn, it doesn't just have you make a U-turn. It will automatically calculate another route to get you where you need to go.

Cons: A bit pricey. No battery, so if you have to restart the car, or it comes unplugged, you have to wait for the system to reboot to be able to use it again. And speaking of booting, it seems to take a long time to boot up (this may be normal as this is the first GPS system I've owned. It also takes up alot of room so if your not careful with placement, it can block your view of the road.

Other Thoughts: Impressive system. Everyone who has seen it has wanted to use it and see all the features (top speed, MP3 player etc) and the ability to find the nearest gas station / resteraunt is great. You can even enter in what type of food you want and it will look for it.
