The first time I saw the Garmin StreetPilot i5Automotive GPS navigator I immediately thought back to my favorite Rawlings baseball mitt. StreetPilot i5 is (3 x 2.74 x 2.15 inches) small as it fits snugly in the palm of your hand.
I�ve read some recent online buzz that it�s kind of hard to manipulate the Garmin StreetPilot i5system interface because it�s �so tiny�. I don�t think it�s �so tiny� nor is the unit�s size a negative factor to the navigational system�s over all quality nor functionality. In fact, there is no problem seeing the interface details on the unit�s 15-bit smallish color screen (though I do admit I have 20/20 vision).
I found the exactness of the unit to be awesome. It may be small bit it still delivers cutting edge GPS navigational features like 3-dimensional map graphics with voice prompted, turn-by-turn directions.
Many folks are touting the Garmin StreetPilot i5 series as the perfect GPS units for first time GPS buyers. Perhaps, but also GPS veteran buyer are also excited about this product. You get a ton of smart features from the Garmin Street Pilot i to keep you on course and up-to-date about upcoming traffic problems plus Garmin Street Pilot i5 comes pre-loaded with detailed maps of City Navigator North America NT and there is a cool �click to enter� scroll wheel that simplifies choosing your target destination.
When it comes to GPS unit sizes�it is a matter of personal taste though if size is nt important to you or if you prefer a small GPS unit the size of a baseball glove, you can�t go wrong with Garmin Street Pilot i5.
My brother actually keeps the Garmin StreetPilot i5 unit in his glove compartment (along with a few packets of Merit ultra-lights) as a spare.He claims he keeps it there– in case his larger Garmin StreetPilot c340 Automotive GPS System should fail him. I always thought that was neat that the StreetPilot i5 could fit in there so comfortabley but a bit odd because one simply does not need a spare for Garmin c340, a very dependable GPS system. I guess he likes to compare the c340 and i5, nothing wrong with that! Then again, maybe he just loves collecting Garmin GPS units. Ok by me also!
