Conclusion: The Garmin nuLink! 2390 is certainly a navigation system I would recommend to anyone looking for a top of the range connected system. At a retail price of £229.99 it is well priced for a connected device. There is one slight caveat in that to purchase all the live services you are looking at an annual cost of £127.32.
Summary: I had an old NavMan for ages, and refused to spend more money, just because the Navman did ok ? Anyway, the wife broke the Navman, so I was forced to buy another. The Garmin is now with me on any journey, I am not completely familiar with. Has never sent me down the wrong road, or ridiculous short-cut, it is a delight to use.
Summary: I read many one star reviews whilst are quite old. My 2390 works fine from the day I bought it but mainly I have to say by reading reviews of TomTom users both companies when launch new products are not 100% reliable, however when new updates released both solved the problems. Over all I believe from the experts reviews and as a Garmin user for many years and own all latest upper devices, Garmin is over all better than TomTom.
Summary: Bought this for my son when he started as a London mini cab driver, it takes him to within 2 metres of the customers front door throughout London, making his job so much easier & allowing him peace of mind to drive anywhere without getting lost.
Summary: Had a navman spirit which had free live traffic updates that were reliable but often came too late. Was incited by the promise of 3D traffic updates every 2 mins on this device. Unfortunately I have found that the device often cannot connect to the network so I don't get the updates at all and there is not basic traffic update to fall back on if the 3D service fails.
Summary: You'll need to set aside a couple of hours to read the terms and conditions embedded in this product - all skewed in their favour and even requiring you to indemnify them. Added to which if you use the traffic function your speed, locations etc are all logged and kept by Garmin. I think I'd rather be stuck in a queue of traffic than sign up to this blatant intrusion into my privacy, thank you. Bye bye Garmin.
Summary: We bought this satnav to replace an 18 month old version from the same brand. We have been impressed with the new technology and benefits. The traffic function seems to work pretty well (this technology is still definitely work in progress but so much better than older versions). It doesn't pick up all traffic issues but seems to get the ones on major roads. Overally pretty happy with the purchase.
Summary: This is very good for £129 but remember youll have to pay £75 for lifetime map updates once and £45/year for the live link which lets you receive information like traffic,speed cameras google search etc on the move. You get one free map update when you first get it.Traffic and speed cameras are free for life and other services like fuel price search which shows fuel prices where you are , on your route or destination costs £0.95 per month This is the best option out of...
Summary: Poor instructions, poor software, poor customer services, poor website, spent ages trying to get it fully working - waste of time - back in the box and refund if you please! I have a sense of humour but really, is this the best Garmin can do?
