A Fatally-Flawed Design

Written By LeeH, Houston, TX on Sunday, July 13, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
It would take only a few cents more in pruduction cost to add to this soft pouch a long flap (three or four inches) with a velcro closure; then the pouch would be usable. But without a flap and closure mechanism on the pouch, the GPS navigator readily slides out of the pouch into the bag or purse or briefcase. So forget this pouch unless you are carrying the navigator in the inside breast pocket of a suit, so that the opening always faces upward.

Considering the expense of the navigator, why does not Garmin include with the navigator a leather zipper pouch with a quality zipper and a padded interior? or a leather pouch with a long flap and a velcro closure? A soft pouch provides protection only against scratches. But any device with a fragile glass screen needs a semi-rigid case.
Worthless and far too expensive. Zero stars (better yet, several negative stars.)

Great sleeve for the newest nuvi!

Written By Tintin, APO Adana, Turkey on Sunday, July 21, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
I got this for the new Nuvi, and it does just what it should. Size is just right, even for the larger screen.
Functional and attractive. No frills.
I would have liked a velcro closure or zipper, so the GPS doesn't inadvertently fall out while bouncing around in my backpack.
