    One Size Does Not Always Fit All Models

    I'm sure the case is a good case for Garmin GPS models without a camera. However I recently purchased the Garmin DriveAssist 50LMT 5" GPS with Built-In Camera and this case does not fit well due to the camera lense protruding out past the GPS formed case. There should be a case specifically designed for these models to allow clearance for the camera lenses in order to create a better fit. The magnetic flap cannot close due to the lense pushing out on the case too far so I just tuck the flap inside. Need to be careful not to carry open side down as the GPS will slide out since the flap can't engage to keep closed. It is better than nothing...maybe.

    Horrible case

    Horrible case - I purchased a 5inch Garmin and this case is very large in comparison to the device. Also, it is very narrow you can only slip in the GPS without any of the attachments - the piece you snap on that allows you to mount has to be taken off before placing in this case. buy something else if you plan to keep everything together.

    I like having a case so I can keep my GPS in my car but the mount "ball" stays on the GPS so it won't fit into the case. You can take that part off but it is hard to do and I'm afraid that it will eventually break. I had to return the case.

    Garmin Nuvi 57M doesn't fit in sleeve

    Even though the description state Universal cover for Garmin 5 and 6 inches, my Nuvi 57LM wouldn't fit in the sleeve. This really isn't a true cover but a sleeve. Returning, don't think any GPS would fit in the sleeve.

    I understand its supposed to be a simple compact but in order for it to fit you need to remove the snap in attachment that has to be placed in the back of the device. Very inconvienient. Go with a off brand on E

      Thank you for your review, I am sorry to hear the carrying case is unsatisfactory to you. You do need to remove the vehicle mount from the device, leaving the mount on the suction cup portion.

      If the carrying case does not fit or support your Garmin GPS please take advantage of our toll-free Customer Service http://www.garmin.com/support

    The Garmin's clip that goes into the back of the Garmin that clips to the arm that holds it to the window is too large to fit in the leather holder so it was a waste of money.

      Thank you for your review. The cradle that attaches to the back of your Garmin device must be removed from the device before you insert the GPS device the Garmin Carrying Case.

      Again, thank you for your review. {CW} Garmin

    I purchased this carrying case for a 5" Garmin GPS but it was too big so I returned it. I would have been fine for a 6" unit.

    Won't fit unless you get the holder off and that isn't easy.

    This bag is too firm and narrow to put the GPS in.
