Garmin GPS V Review

Gps_v_1

UPDATE: This model has been discontinued.

The Garmin GPS V is an older unit, still popular due to its  relatively (considering the fact that it comes with Garmin’s City Select software) low price. Not only that, it also comes with an auto mount and cigarette lighter power adapter. The GPS V can be used horizontally in your car, or vertically as a handheld. This unit is a deal, but it is also last generation technology–only 19 MB of memory, a serial cable interface, and a monochrome screen.

55 reviewers at Amazon gave the GPS V a 4 out of 5 star rating.

Here’s what others have to say:



  • GPSInformation.net has this GPS V review.
  • ZDNet’s Garmin V review gave it an 8.0 out of 10 rating. 32 of their readers gave it an average review of 7.8.
  • About.com features a Garmin GPS V review from a motorcyclist’s perspective.
