Nice (little) GPS

Crutchfield customer from Fort Mc Coy, FL on 8/7/2021

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I already own two other Garmin GPS when I purchased this one, one in my truck, one in my Mercedes. I bought a Corolla, and the windshield is so sloped I could not fit either the 7 inch unit from the truck, nor the 6 inch unit from the Mercedes anywhere reasonable (not blocking windshield view). So I bought a 5 incher: this unit. I was worried I'd lose features or processing power (response time) with a "lesser" unit, but I have been very pleasantly surprised. If anything it has MORE features than the other two, it responds to input very quickly, plans out routes very quickly. It also recalculates new routes after deviations quickly. My only gripe is the keyboard letters and numbers are so small it usually takes me several attempts (and some swearing) to enter addresses or POIs. That may be somewhat my fault, I have relatively large hands, and I'm used to the larger display of the other units. Overall I'm not disappointed at all, in fact very happy with it, and wouldn't hesitate to recommend this GPS.

Pros: Fast response, lots of features.

Cons: Tiny keyboard for big hands.

Not as good as old Nuvi, bad software

Stephen from CORNWALL, VT on 7/21/2021

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I bought this to replace an old Nuvi that finally died. It does not work as well as the old Nuvi, based on my first 50-mile test drive. On three occasions, it did not alert me to turns at upcoming intersections, but treated these intersections as if they were continuations of the same road I was already on. On one occasion, it incorrectly identified the road I was on (a State highway) as the adjacent State highway. I thought maybe a firmware or map update might help, but was unable to install Garmin Express, the only software available to update the unit, on either of my PC's. Both PC's are Windows 7 Pro. I could install older versions of Express on them, up to version 6.7.1.0, but those versions 'could not communicate with the Garmin server' - and the current versions would not install at all - same as many other people have found. Yes, Win 7 is obsolete but I am now in the position of having a throw-away GPS that can't be updated, or having to buy a new PC. Garmin support was useless.

Pros: Works pretty well

Cons: Can't be updated from Win 7 PC, omits upcoming-turn directions in some cases.

Great GPS for the car.

Simple, GPS. Easy to read display. Clear voice directions. Maps included. And unlike a phone, it is not reporting your every move to the government.

Garmin is the best. They are so people friendly. I hooked it to my new Apple Mac mini and easily got my Map updates. I had to call Crutchfield for help about the SDCard insertion and got an instant and correct answer!!!

Mostly improved.

Crutchfield customer from Orchard Park , NY on 5/30/2019

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I bought this to replace an older Garmin nuvi 5-inch gps. The Garmin Drive 52 has a nice, fast, search algorithm for points of interest. I have only two disappointments. (1) its 5-inch display is slightly smaller that that of the older model which also had a 5-inch display. (2) I prefer the older route preference choices: faster time or shorter distance. The new method shows me the route(s) on the map and allows it to be selected as is or it can be altered. (3) The Garmin Drive 52 is thinner and lighter, but has only half the battery life - 1 hr vs 2 hrs.

Cons:

Get you one of these for roaming out of cell coverage. It works better than any phone nav. Well worth it . We used it property hunting in rural areas and it never skipped a beat.
