Mike, April 9, 2013 Mounted this unit on my bike for a trip from Texas to Arizona and back and it worked well. After only a few minutes I was very familiar with the functions and able to download and follow routes that were created on Base Camp by others in my group. It doesn't have Bluetooth but where I mounted it on my bike, I could glance down and easily see where the route was taking me.
Kyle, January 27, 2012 I'm not new to GPS - I bought a Garmin eTrex Legend when
they first came out about 10 years ago, I have a Garmin
Edge 800 for my bicycle. However, for the past 7 years I
have always had TomTom for my car GPS because I preferred
the look and feel of their software and user interface. I
decided to switch to Garmin because the last two TomToms
had problems with freezing on start-up. No such problems
with the Garmin Nuvi 50LM - it's very stable and after a
dozen or so uses I've no problems at all with software or
In comparing the TomTom software to Garmin . . . I really
like the Garmin feature of going into the split screen mode
for upcoming junctions and turns, and the constant preview
in the upper-left corner that gives distance and proper
lane choices for upcoming junctions. This is something my
TomToms lacked and I consider a very important feature for
reasons of safety. The one thing I liked better about the
TomTom software is they allow you to display POIs on the
map as you are driving, and have a filter that gives you
control over which types of POIs to display (i.e.
hospitals, gas stations, etc.). Garmin obviously has this
information available, since they let you use POIs to
determine destinations, but they don't allow you to display
them while driving. Overall, I like the Garmin better and
will probably be sticking with them for a while, and I'm
looking forward to the lifetime map updates that I never
had with TomTom.
Note: One thing I'd like to see both Garmin and TomTom do a
better job with - Rest Areas on Interstates. I don't
understand why they are ignored because they are a very
important thing to know about when taking long trips.

screen. It is very user friendly unlike some found in
luxury cars. In my opinion Garmin is the best!
