Trouble finding satellites - a cure.

R. G. Kemp, Amazon
9 June 2011
  • Summary: Bought a second Nuvi 1240, as my daughter had commandeered mine. After charging it up, it wouldn't locate satellites and none of the troubleshooting tips cured the problem. On one website, it suggested that one should press and hold the satellite indicator bars in the top left hand corner of the main screen until a satellite map and signal graph appeared.

Garmin Nuvi 1240

Mr. S. Rennie, Amazon
26 December 2010
  • Summary: A good sat nav, delivered on time and well packaged. Setup instructions are easy, the sat nav itself is basic but very effective, does what it says on the tin.

Good basic SatNav

Mr. David King, Amazon
18 November 2010
  • Summary: Good basic satnav with the added bonus of 23 European countries as well, clear voice which is plenty loud enough, good display, good instructions with road names spoken before you turn, this has replaced an infuriating tomtom XL which did not make it back from France due to me making it into a 1000 piece sat-nav puzzle kit with a hammer.

So far, so good

Member of Clueless, Amazon

  • Summary: I vowed I would never need a SatNav as I could read maps and speak languages. However, this was a gift (sort of) and has already proved useful for finding out of the way places in France. I wouldn't trust its routing entirely, but if you're careful, you'll be OK.

Nice Sat-nav but..........

Nigel Bartlett, Amazon
22 May 2010
  • Summary: Nice piece of kit but was a little disappointed because I had to download quite a few updates for A BRAND NEW product. Garmin should have done that before I received it!!!! The other down side is that it should have come with a charger for the car. The plus points are it is so easy to use with its touch screen and the battery lasts for a very long time. I have used other sat-nav products but you cannot beat Garmin and at a price of just under £90 its well worth it!!!!

Clear and easy to use

Rebecca Jenkins, Amazon
27 April 2010
  • Summary: As a no-frills sat nav this performs well. Occasionally it seemed to get stuck in the depths of Snowdonia where the satellite coverage was a bit patchy but for normal use it is reliable and quick. The graphics are not fancy but clear. You can search for named stores and attractions as well as by address. The voice is clear and copes with announcing street names even in Welsh!

Wirklich gut

amongheros, eBay.de

  • Summary: Klein, handlich, sehr schnell in betrieb und eine nette Stimme. Bei aktuellem Kartenmaterial kann das nüvi auf dem Beifahrersitz liegen! Nachts wird der Kartenhintergrund blau...kannte ich noch nicht, sehr angenehm. Ansonsten macht es einen robusten Eindruck und paßt in die Westentasche! Ich suche noch Kartenmaterial zu Wanderwegen..mal sehen was es da so gibt.
