Lowrance iWay 500c GPS Review
The Lowrance iWay 500C has been reviewed by Bonnie Cha and gives it an 8.6 rating (out of 10) and an “Editor’s Choice” award.
Lowrance’s 45 years in the navigation business show in its iWay 500c, one of the sharpest vehicle GPS systems we’ve seen to date. The iWay isn’t cheap, but it’s still more affordable than other top performers, such as the Garmin StreetPilot 2620 and the Magellan RoadMate 700, and it includes everything you’ll need to start navigating right out of the box. It also has a built-in MP3 player with lots of room to store your favorite tunes. But more importantly, it’s a great navigation device with accurate directions and strong reception, leaving the competition in the dust.
Craig Ellison of PC Magazine also gave the Lowrance iWay 500C an Editor’s Choice award:
Lowrance Electronics is perhaps best known for its fishing and marine equipment, such as depth recorders, fish finders, and marine GPS devices. Now the company is introducing a line of automotive, voice-prompted, turn-by-turn GPS devices, and they’re definitely worth some attention. In fact, we liked the iWAY 500C so much we’ve awarded it an Editors’ Choice.
