Our take on the Lowepro 5.0 Navi Sleeve

by Dominic Devito
Lowepro

Worried about scratching the screen on your portable GPS navigator when you take it out of your car? Lowepro's 5.0 Navi Sleeve gives your 5" navigator excellent protection without weighing you down. This soft, stretchy neoprene case features reinforced inside panels that keep your navigator safe from bumps and drops — ideal if you transfer your navigator between vehicles or take it on business trips.

Lowepro includes a microfiber cloth to help you keep your navigator's touchscreen clean, while the case's soft lining prevents abrasions caused by dust and other particles. Dual zippers offer convenient access and allow you to charge your navigator while it's in the sleeve. When you're not using the 5.0 Navi Sleeve, it fits easily in your glove compartment or center console.

Highlights:

  • black carrying case for 5" portable GPS navigators
  • stretchy neoprene construction with nylon tricot interior
  • reinforced interior panels
  • dual zippers
  • internal dimensions: 5-3/4"W x 3-15/16"H x 15/16"D
  • weight: 3.2 oz.
  • limited lifetime warranty

Quick impressions from the Lab

Simple design scores points

Written by Ralph Graves, Staff Writer - Creative, on 8/10/2012 3:36:00 PM

This is a simple case, but it's well thought-out. I've tried inexpensive cases, and their interiors aren't always kind to touchscreens. Having a microfiber cloth to product the screen is a great idea — and so is having it permanently attached. That's the kind of thing that easily gets lost in our car.

I was a little surprised that the zipper didn't go all the way around so the case could open up like a book. But after trying it out for a while, I realized it wasn't necessary. It opens far enough to easily slip a GPS unit in and out of the case, and that's fine.

One thing I really liked was the stiffness of the case. It's not enough to prevent damage if you put the thing in your back pocket and sat down. But it will hold up to the stresses the case (and the GPS inside it) are submitted to in a purse, backpack, or jacket pocket.

Great case

Written By Ron, Northern Colorado on Tuesday, January 14, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Crutchfield offered this fort-fit case for 1 cent when ordering the Garmin GPS and it's good to have. Leaving the unit on the dash can attract unwanted attention, but removing the unit is easy and carrying it in the case works well.
Pros:
Fits well.
Cons:
none.

Nice Case for my Garmin 2555LMT

Written By Brian, NW Ohio on Tuesday, July 17, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I bought this case for my Garmin 2555LMT which has a 5" screen. The case is perfect. Zips up so the gps is completely protected, and just the right size, actually a snug almost custom fit for the unit. The outside is a micro-fiber, suede-like material and on the interior the attached screen wipe is a nice little extra.
