Cons: Not big enuff

Works as advertised...

RonS from Delaware on 11/16/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This case definitely holds my 5" Garmin. I can carry it around if I have a pocket big enough to accommodate it. However, like most folks (I presume), I only use it when driving, and then I stow it in the glove compartment, where it is, unfortunately, vulnerable to damage because of its soft material. This is not a fault of the manufacturer but rather my own misjudgment. I have since purchased a hard shell case which can also accommodate my charger cord (the soft case cannot). Frankly, the cost of this item seems high for what is essentially two mid-size pieces of felt sewn together. As others have also noted, it doesn't close, leaving your GPS susceptible to squiggling out of the case and perhaps being damaged.

Pros: The case holds a 5" Garmin.

Cons: That's about all it can do. Make sure you really don't want a truly protective case before purchasing this item. It's really only for use when there's no potential for damage.

total waste of money

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

You buy a case to protect your GPS. I bought the garmin to of the line 5" GPS which is aluminum and very thin.the Case doesn't close, so the GPS insists on sliding out. The case is also a very cheap non leather material. Worthless.

Pros: None

Cons: Open ended.does not protect GPS. Cheap material

A Fatally-Flawed Design

LeeH from Houston, TX on 7/13/2014

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.

Pros: None

Cons: Worthless and far too expensive. Zero stars (better yet, several negative stars.)

Great sleeve for the newest nuvi!

Tintin from APO Adana, Turkey on 7/21/2013

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.

Pros: Functional and attractive. No frills.

Cons: I would have liked a velcro closure or zipper, so the GPS doesn't inadvertently fall out while bouncing around in my backpack.

Good fit, but needs a latch
