Garmin iQue question

Does anyone have experience with how these perform in a car? Primarily, if I am riding down the road in a cage and want to pull up a destination on the fly and navigate to it - will the unit be able to get satellite reception? Typically, I'm in a rental so no chance of rigging up an external antenna.

TIA.

Richard

Thumbs up Garmin IQ

I have an IQM5. Would work great in a rental. Antenna works fine with the windshield cradle. Putting in addresses on the fly is difficult because you must use the supplied stylus to select entries and the icons on screen are to small to hit while driving. but the screen is big enough to see after you got an address entered. M5 has bluetooth but is very slow compared to a usb connection. Uses standard SD card memory. Mine goes with me everywhere I go.
