Garmin StreetPilot i review: Garmin StreetPilot i

 

Garmin StreetPilot i-series In-car GPS devices have come a long way in terms of usability and affordability, as intuitive plug-and-play systems infiltrate the market and prices fall below the $1,000 mark. However, Garmin takes it one step further with...

The Garmin StreetPilot i series benefits from ease of use, an accurate GPS receiver, and affordability.

A downside of the Garmin StreetPilot i series is its small screen.

Don't let its diminutive size fool you--the Garmin StreetPilot i series is a powerful, feature-rich GPS system with an extremely user-friendly interface.

Works as promised

 

I bought this thing mainly because of the price and because another reviewer said it was simple enough for his wife to operate.

The mapping software works better than earlier products I've used, but it's still a bit moronic.

Better that factory GPS!!

 

Very accurate, fast satellite acquisition, fast recalculation, voice guidance is clear and with good volume, I was a little bit worried about the size of the screen but that is no problem at all, custom POI in a nice addition, you can add a stops along...

Map version (V8) is out of date, does not show a major highway change in my area and needs to be updated, but this is a software issue.

garmin I5: A small wonder

 

A great small compact GPS receiver with extreme accuracy.

A tad small screen but that's what you get for the price.

Love the I-5

 

Size makes this extremely portable, speaker is loud and upgrading firmware was a snap.

can be a bit slow unless you narrow your search.
