    Not impressed

    GPS holder is made well but the GPS does not fit in it very well. (which is why I gave two stars) Part of the bracket is still attached to the GPS, so it just doesn't fit in the case. I read someone else said same thing but I needed something to put it in so glass would not get scratched.

    Very basic but not good fit

    A very basic case. Because it fit 5" and 6", it wider and longer than needed for 5" gps. It does not fit in compartments in my truck. A notch under the magnetic clasp tends to make it harder to close. It does protect the screen which is the main reason I bought it. Garmin has made cases for smaller units that were a perfect fit. I expected the same for this one but a little disappointed.

    Great protection but not roomy.

    I purchased a new Garmin GPS so I wouldn't use all my data on a road trip. I wanted another case because my old one was misplaced. The salesman helped me locate one which happened to be on sale, great price. It fits well on my unit but doesn't leave room for the accessories nor can you use it while in the case. I was a little disappointed.

    Garmin 2589LTM GPS case

    I thought case was a tight fit for my new Garmin 2589LTM GPS and didn't like it. I should have returned to Best Buy for credit, but never did. I did buy a hard case for the GPS that I purchased from Amazon and that works perfect and I can even tuck in car cable in case when packing in my suitcase and then using on rental cars.

    I wanted to put my GPS and it’s assessories in one place so I could keep up with everything better. Also, so I could carry it from house to car without dropping everything. The one I bought was too small to hold it all. I returned it , but could not find anything that would work.

    I'm comparing this case with one for old model I had for 5 years. This is generic for both 5" and 6" model, so if you have 5" it takes more space that needed. Old was hard leather that holds unit tight with nice protection. New one is so soft that it protects only against dust and insects.

      We are sorry if this case didn't meet your expectations. If you are looking for a 5" case that adds more protection, you may want to take a look at part number 010-11577-01.

    A little misleading

    case is designed only if you do not attach that piece that is used for the friction mount. Otherwise the GPS is too thick to fit in to the case....This was disappointing. That piece is on the back is difficult to take on and off.

    This is a nice case that protects the GPS. If you leave the accessories in your car, then this would be good. But if you like me you keep the GPS with the power cord and suction cup this doesn't work. Only fits the GPS.

    Case doesn't close

    Once the GPS unit is in the case, the strap isn't long enough for the case to close. I still use the case since the GPS is in the case pretty securely. It is not going to fall out.

    This case is fine if you just need something to hold the GPS unit in. Fits and looks nice. But it has no additional room for the charger or mount.

    This carrying case was a disappointment. It's so snug that it takes too long to put it in and take it out. It is sleek looking but impractical.

    This case is barely big enough for the Garmin, no pockets for the cords! Returned it.

    It was only $12.00 but it sits in my desk drawer and I don't use it. I could have bought something more practical for the $12.00 at Best Buy.

    I bought it but it is problematic because it did take in the ball connection on the back of the god. I only use it now between seasons

    Ok, but not great quality. The case that I purchased for my previous GPS was higher quality.
