Garmin StreetPilot i5 Review

Streetpilot_i5 UPDATE: Most of the several generations old StreetPilot series, including this model, has been discontinued. For a more current recommendation, check out our Auto GPS buyers guide or go straight to our Garmin nuvi comparison chart.


The Garmin StreetPilot i5 GPS is the flagship model in the StreetPilot i-series of auto navigation systems. Unlike the StreetPilot i2 and i3, this model comes pre-loaded with City Navigator maps for the entire U.S. and Canada. The i5 also accepts TransFlash data cards for adding other regions.

At the time of this posting, nearly 100 buyers at Amazon had given an average 4-1/2 out of 5 star rating in their StreetPilot i5 reviews.
