Garmin iQue M5 Review


UPDATE: This model has been discontinued.

The Garmin iQue M5 is the first PDA I’ve reviewed, so I covered advantages and disadvantages of using PDAs as GPS devices in my previous post today.

The primary differences between this model and the iQue M4 are that:

  • The M4 comes with pre-loaded maps of North America, whereas with the M5 you must transfer Garmin’s City Select maps (the CD is  included with the M5) to the 64 MB of internal memory or an SD card.
  • The M5 has Bluetooth, while the M4 does not.

19 readers at Amazon gave an average 3-1/2 out of 5 star rating in their Garmin IQue M5 review.

Here’s what others have to say about the iQue M5:

  • Dale DePriest posted a Garmin iQue M5 review for
  • includes lots of photos and screenshots with their iQue M5 review.
  • CNet gave the IQ M5 a 7.0 out of 10 rating; 20 of their readers liked it enough to give it a 7.5.
  • Gary Krakow wrote a Garmin M5 review for MSNBC.
