Brad Jensen and Tim Keirnan present a longitudinal review of the
Garmin Nuvi 50 portable GPS. What does it do well, and how could
its interaction design and interface design be improved?
An earlier episode of Design Critique reviewed a TomTom portable GPS and you might want to go back and hear that along with this episode.
Both TomTom and Garmin solve the navigation problem for their customers in ways that are both familiar and different. Neither unit provides a perfect solution, but it's fun to talk about.
