O Brother, Where Am I

 

A longtime manufacturer of CB radios and other electronics devices, Cobra Electronics Corp. has entered the GPS field. Although the Cobra GPS 500 provides the basics in terms of interface design and function, it offers little more, besides a low price.

Cobra GPS 500 review:

 

Accurate tracking; user-friendly menus.

Weak receiver; low-resolution display; inconvenient joystick placement; not waterproof.

While not as expensive as similar handheld units, the Cobra GPS 500 suffers from a weak receiver and a few design flaws.
