Summary: If you are looking for a Satnav who can call out street names while driving, go for it. Great product just make sure that you connect it to PC to upgrade software before use otherwise it keeps on restarting whilst on road.
Summary: This is my first standalone satnav after a couple of built-in units and a while using phone-based navigation. The Garmin Nuvi 1240 is a neat little unit, less obstructive than a large screen or widescreen one (that so many people seem to put right in front of their faces - idiots) and can be easily tucked away in a corner of the windscreen. The initial setup and update was easy, took a while to download and install but was painless.
Summary: Fantastic SAT Nav. Worked straight out of the box and all you need to know is a Post Code. It identifes whether you are exceeding speed limit, where speed cameras are and tells you the roadname you are turning in to. If you go the wrong way or take a slight detour then it quickly recalculates the route. For the money this is excellent and it makes a big difference if you are driving anywhere unfamiliar.
Summary: This is my first Sat-Nav. I did some research and was looking for a model that told me the name of roads I was to turn on to. I didn't want to spend too much and wanted something that would work well. The Ecoroute facility (which tells you the most fuel efficient route from A-B)sold it to me. This model did what I expected and got me sucessfully through a 230 mile journey at the weekend without problem.
Summary: We were looking for a replacement for our old but trusty Garmin i3 sat nav. Senior Management loves the Garmin logic and detests my Tom Tom 720 as being too temperamental (some software upgrades from TomTom have been "bug" ridden), complex and bulky. This nuvi 1200 series is thinner than the previous models and is very simple to operate. Map seems OK, but can be confused - e.g. did not recognise the lane of my brothers farm, which has been in existence for a century!

18 April 2010
Summary: Este GPS dispone de mapas preinstalados de Norteamerica o Europa, anuncia los nombres de las calles y calcula la ruta que ahorra mas combustible gracias a su sistema "Ecoroute". Es muy comodo, ya que su tamaño es un 25% mas fino que versiones anteriores y nos cabe perfectamente en el bolsillo. Lleva una bateria de ion-litio recargable, y por esto, es adecuado para la navegacion en coche o a pie.
Pros: Sistema Ecoroute, tamaño, muchas funcionalidades . marca de confianza
Summary: Dies ist jetzt das vierte Garmin Gerät, was ich habe, die Bedienung ist einfach und selbsterklärend. Das neue Nüvi rechnet schnell, auch wenn man sich verfahren hat, d.h. zu spät abgebogen ist. Adressen können schnell eingeben werden. Die erfahrung zeigt, dass man sich aber nicht immer blind auf das Navi verlasen sollte. Ich schaue mir das Ziel auch auf der Karte an, wenn es um weitere Strecken geht.
