With a big 5" (12.7 cm) touchscreen, more than 5 million points of interest (POIs) and spoken turn-by-turn directions, nüvi 50LM makes driving fun again. Plus, with FREE lifetime map updates, you always can keep your roads and POIs up to date.
Mostly works as advertised
Pros: Low price, big screen, Lifetime maps, simple interface, customizable
Cons: Simple interface lacking some features, occasionally gets confused, touch screen not that sensitive.
Other Thoughts: I borrowed a cousin's Garmin a few times and loved it, so I decided to purchase a similar one. After some research, settled on this Nuvi 50. I've only used it a couple of times since its purchase and it gets the job done. I like the big, bright screen, free lifetime maps, and the custom icons available. But sometimes it takes a bit to get locked onto the satellites, and it doesn't always give accurate data, so be warned. It's missing some of the map features of its bigger brothers like the 1490. And the touch screen sometimes doesn't respond very well. Honestly, Google Maps is probably more accurate, but a little harder to use while driving. If you travel a lot and need a cheap GPS (and can make up your own mind about the information it gives you), buy one.
