Should have bought larger 6" size instead...
December 27, 2017
We currently have older age Garmin 5" GPS and love it. Clean, simple and easy to use. We needed another GPS for our other vehicle and decided to buy Garmin again - since both have same operating menus. This Garmin Drive 50 model works great but I find its screen a little "too busy" for my simple mind / simple eyes. It flashes with curve ahead warnings, it flashes with animal crossing ahead warnings, etc. etc. At times, I find it "too busy / too distracting". I'm sure I'll find a way to turn some of its many advanced features off. On a sad note, I find the Drive 50 model a little too small for my older age eyes. Especially since its screen is being filled with too many messages. Next time, I will only buy a larger 6" size model. Will put this 5" model in our little "run about" small vehicle. Will buy future larger size 6" for our mini-van - that has much larger dash area. And when you buy (for yourself), remember to buy the bean bag friction mount with it as well. re: Garmin Portable Friction Mount - Frustration Free Packaging. This 5" GPS it too heavy to suction cup stick to windshield surface. Hope this helps others.
