Summary: I'm a huge Garmin fan. I've bought at least 15 units in the last six years either for myself or as gifts. I bought this unit to replace another nuLink 1695 that was stolen from my vehicle a few weeks earlier. I love the nuLink service because it provides Google Local Search and it provides traffic information in my town where FM Traffic is not available.
Summary: Amazing product, very friendly to use. Excellent product!!!!!!!! good results & very accurate to find anything nearby like point of interest, gas, prompts camera before the signal. The more you use you get more info regarding this item. Love it.
Great product with great features and worth the money.

Summary: I bought this GPS as I travel and sell all over the state. It has more than paid for itself in just a short time. Great features, easy to use, I absolutely love this product and would recommend it to anyone looking for a GPS with all the bells and whistles.
Summary: An intuitive device that seems to know everything! The Google search is truly helpful if you travel a lot and need help locating places. I drive a tour bus and am required to go many places I have never been. I truly would be lost without my Garmin. Hit the Go button and fear of the unknown is eliminated. I bought one for my mother a couple of years ago and still get thankyou calls about the wonderful gps that takes away the anxiety of driving in unfamiliar places.
First GPS I've ever bought and the only GPS I'll repurchase. Go buy one!

Summary: I absolutely love it. The settings are easy to understand and paring your phone to the device for calling is very simple, unlike some bluetooth devices I've seen in the past. The map is very clear and the feature that shows you the exits and what they look like even before you get to them is very nice. Bottomline, this GPS is the best I have ever used and is the first GPS I have ever purchased. I don't think I'll be buying another GPS for a long time.
Couldn't ask for anything more, Garmin knocked it outta the park.

Summary: The 5" screen makes such a difference and the quality of Garmin keeps blowing the others out of the water. I have owned 2 Nextar's, a TomTom and just purchased my 2nd Garmin. Garmin is very user friendly, dependable and in my oppinion, the best on the market. Batteries seem to last longer than the 3hrs expected. The nulink 1695 just kills it. Options including the weather, bluetooth red light cameras..... Bar none..... Best unit that Ive come across!
Summary: Good satnav well made very good volume but let down on pronoucing names of street names which is unusual for garmam.for instance instead of tottington it will say tittington must have been thinking of a couple of things when putting micro chip
Summary: I've not fully tested this product yet, I'm at the part where I'm updating it to use the latest maps. The latest update required me to have a Micro SD card because the update was too big to fit onto the devices internal storage space. So if you are thinking about getting this SatNav make sure you have a Micro SD ready too. The update was just over 2GB, so make you get at least a 4GB Micro SD card.
Summary: The Garmin NuLink 1695 is so infuriating. The maps maps look good for US city blocks but here in Europe where our roads have bends in them they just look a mess. Place names get some really odd pronounciation and 4 digit road numbers get read out in full - every time!! - ie A5117 is the "A five thousand, one hundred and seventeen!" The options to configuration the unit are very limited so there is nothing that can be done to alter these issues.
