Garmin - only buy if TomTom unavailable

Tri Tony, Amazon
28 December 2011
  • Summary: Had a small TomTom that died after 18 months. This Garmin came in at a good price. Oh, what a mistake. It's probably okay if you have never owned a TomTom but short comings include: 1) slip road shown as single line (TomTom) indicated which side of slip lane to take) 2) mapping through Rouen is...

  • Summary: I have an older Garmin than this and the item functioned fine, as did a previous Garmin. I have found the after sales contact with Garmin deplorable and for this reason do not recommend this manufacturer.

Garmin Nuvi 1240 Sat Nav

Tonp, Amazon
9 July 2011
  • Summary: Very Cheap for a Satnav with European maps but not very reliable. Do not buy this from Amazon. It is obviously very old stock. The maps were out of date as soon as we received it, but it is not supplied with a USB cable to update the maps.

Not recommended

Mr. R. C. Nash, Amazon
22 April 2010
  • Summary: I wanted a new sat nav after my Navman finally gave up the ghost after being used, on an almost day-to-day basis, for 4 years.

i would not advise pedestrians to buy this

Ms P Dalton, Amazon
5 February 2010
  • Summary: I like to walk about london looking at galleries, visiting parks and out of the way places, so thought the Garmin 1240 with city xplorer would fit the bill. My main complaint - as with another reviewer - is that journeys cannot be planned in advance.

Pessimo prodotto

DarioZanelli, Ciao
4 September 2011
  • Summary: Pessimo prodotto, ero abituato al mio vecchio Tom Tom che mi ha guidato egregiamente durante le ferie lo scorso anno. Quest'anno è stato un incubo: questo prodotto mi indicava sempre strade di campagna, spesso sterrate (con entrambe le impostazioni, percorso breve e percorso veloce).
  • Pros: leggero, autonomia batteria
  • Cons: pessimi algoritmi di navigazione

Garmin GPS Nuvi 1240

londa, Ciao
4 September 2011
  • Summary: Sarò breve ma renderò sicuramente l'idea di questo prodotto: lo ritengo pessimo e dal mio punto di vista ne sconsiglio l'acquisto. L'ho ricevuto in regalo per il mio matrimonio ma per fortuna non mi ero ancora liberata del mio vecchi navigatore.
  • Pros: peso
  • Cons: software non eccezionale

  • Summary: Nach etwas mehr als einem Jahr ist das Gerät irgendwie ziemlich daneben. Stürzt ständig ab, braucht ewig zum hochstarten. Würde es nicht mehr kaufen.
