Garmin StreetPilot i5

 

The Garmin StreetPilot i3's lower bezel contains three buttons: a power switch; a return button that brings you to the previous or main menu pages; and a wheel for scrolling through and selecting menu options, map zooming, and entering text via an...

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.

the best and it will lead you everywhere

 

This device has been used all over the eastern half of the country and has preformed like a champ. I've had it almost 2 years. Althogh CNET says size is a con, I don;t see it that way. The size is perfect and is not distracting. Larger units become...

Size and accuracy are tops

None, it's a top notch device

Love ItL Everything you can ask for in basic GPS.

 

Although I paid $20 too much for my unit, I'm very happy. Covers the "backwoods roads" here in Appalachia very well. The unit fell from our windshield and broke the AC adapter inside the unit. We returned it to Garmin and it was replaced promptly and...

Ease of use, display, price

Some very remote addresses absent

Excellent Device, But Dies a Young Death!!

 

Even without a touchscreen, i5 is very easy to use. Very intuitive. A perfect companion that never lets the user get lost. Stopped functioning without any reason after 15 months. Right after the warranty of 1 year expires. I am really saddened by its...

Review after one year of use

 

My wife got me the I5 for Christmas last year, overall I think it's a great unit for the money. I use it for work all the time I drive all over the Southeast and it has been invaluable. The scroll function can be a bit of a pain compared to touch...

Powerful , compact size is unobtrusive and easy to store when not in use

Does not call out street names, sometimes takes a LONG time to find signal, $70.00 for map updates
