    Disappointing size, mounting disc won't fit

    Case is sturdy, appears well made. Unfortunately, it will not fit a 6" Garmin GPS once you have installed on the back of the device the disc that allows you to place the GPS in a dashboard mount. This means you must continually add and remove the mounting disc, increasing the chances it will crack one of these days and be rendered useless, or simply get lost. Garmin knows you are going to use this with the mounting disc, why not insure that the case will fit with it on? It would have only meant another 1/2 inch of space needed. Stupid.

    I want something sized for a 5 inch

    I bought this for my new DriveLuxe 51LMT-S. I want something better fitting then what this was so I plan to return it. Luckily, I had my Garmin Universal 5-Inch Carrying Case from 2012, model 010-11577-01. It is perfectly sized for just a 5 inch and a nicer build. Hopefully Garmin or a competitor will offer something similar in the future. I specifically do not like that it is oversized for a 5 inch since it can also fit a 6 inch.

    Decent case, but they make a better one

    I bought this case for my son to go with a new Garmin Nuvi 2557 LMT. The case is constructed nicely, but we found the fit a bit too tight which made the GPS difficult to remove. We returned it an opted for the other 5" Garmin case where the GPS slides in vertically as opposed to horizontally. This case may have stretched out a bit in time and become easier to use, but the other one works better in my opinion.

    This case is a nice padded storage case for my Garmin. The magnetic closure is a nice touch. However, I have a smaller car and all of the little nooks crannies and hidey-holes that my old Garmin (with case) would fit into are now too small. I haven't yet found a good place to store it. Still, I would recommend this case. Just not for a small car like mine.

    I have a drive assist 5" Garmin which has a camera. It did not fit all the way in this pouch I believe because of the camera. I think this would be a good item if you have the nuvi model, it seems well made and I believe it would protect the GPS well. I returned this and purchased a larger pouch but only because of size and not the quality of this item.

    Garmin GPS Case

    This is a nicely constructed case. It opens, however, at the end rather than lengthwise and without a flap closing as an added measure of protection. The case is huge, and swallows my 5 inch Garmin GPS.It looks like it could fit bigger than a 6 inch.

    Purchased a new Garmin and wanted a case for it like I had for my older models. This case is NOT nearly as nice as the older style. The older ones seem to fit better than this one, like they were more custom made for the model of Garmin

    This is a great case overall. Only problem is personal I like to keep the back part on my GPS that connects to the holder. Im forced to take it off to put it into the case. But overall this case is amazing. Great quality and very stylish.

    Good quality, bad fit

    The overall fit and finish of this was very good, however the fit was not as per the description. The NUVI would not go in to the case because of the mounting hardware that is permanently affixed to the back of the device.

    I liked the simple design of this carrying case. However it is too small for the 6+ inch GPS. Snug to put the GPS inside and awkward to remove it. I would probably recommend it for a 5 inch GPS.

    Would have to pull out Window mount every time I wanted to put in bag. Also had no place to store cord & window mount. Returned item. Just not what I needed.

      You should take a look at Garmin part number 010-12101-01. This rugged carrying case holds your 3.5-inch, 4.3-inch, 5.0-inch or 6.0-inch Garmin navigator. With its 2 zippered compartments, it will protect your device from scratches while the other side will store all your cables, chargers and mounts. Garmin

    Works well to protect my Garmin. I have a 5" screen and it is plenty big enough to hold it. The magnet flap could be a bitt more powerful to keep top of the holder closed more securely.

    Requires removal of ball connector

    Looks nice and is sleek. However to use requires removal of the ball connector where the suction cup assemble goes it. A DS3 case works better and houses all the parts neatly

    Got this case for my new Garmin. It said it would hold it but it really doesn't. It's a bit pricey also.

    It does protect the Garman. If you have the added connector to mount the it it does not fiy. (Its a little attachment which connest to the anchor arm)

    Would like to have purchased a heavier hard case but this is what was in store. Used with the GPS unit for my father. Basic protection and easy to use.

    The 6" garmin will barely go in the case. It's seems well made. I hope it stretches a little over time.

    This holds the 6 inch unit well, but it is a little tight and you have to pull pretty hard to get the GPS out of the sleeve.
