Lowrance iWAY 250C review

UPDATE: This model has been discontinued. For current recommendations, please refer to our auto GPS buyers guide.

The Lowrance iWAY 250C is a compact GPS navigator, measuring only 4″W x 3″H x 1″D. Featuring turn-by-turn directions, an MP3 player and photo viewer, the iWAY 250C comes pre-loaded with maps of the U.S. and Canada or Western Europe.

Its maps are on a 2 GB MMC/SD card, which has 40 MB free for MP3 files and photos. This isn’t quite as nice as the iWAY 350C, which has a 4 GB hard drive for maps, freeing up the MMC/SD card for entertainment.

    My Machine NEVER WORKED. Tech support was of no use. DO NOT BUY, there is a chance that you will also waste your money.

  2. bowdenski,
    Thanks for sharing that info.

    Can the Iway 250 C be upgraded?

  4. Rich Owings says:

    There are firmware updates, but I don’t see map updates on their site.
