    I would never buy another one of these 1300's maybe not buy another Garmin after this. It is not worth the low price paid. This is my second gps and my worst. I never know if it is going to get me to where I want to go. I hate this model.

CityXplorer maps are available for select tourist destinations in both North America and Europe, and can be downloaded directly to the nüvi.

Features

The 1300 features a public transit mode supporting optional CityXplorer content. Available as a download for select cities, CityXplorer allows the user to plan and use routes that can include public transit options such as bus, tramway, metro and suburban rail systems. Users can navigate through cities across North America and Europe with CityXplorer. The thin and light form factor allows the unit to be carried in a pocket or purse. These devices come standard with ecoRoute™, which suggests fuel-efficient navigation. In addition to “faster time” and “shorter distance” for route preference, ecoRoute lets nüvi users choose “less fuel” as a way to save gas and money. Through ecoRoute's Fuel Report and Mileage Report, drivers can focus on their fuel conservation, and also find fuel-saving tips along the way. All models in the 1300 series feature a 4.3 inch touchscreen display, text to speech technology and is available with coverage of the lower 48 states, Hawaii and Puerto Rico, while the nüvi 1350 is available with preloaded comprehensive coverage of North America. For transatlantic travel, the nüvi 1370T comes standard with mapping for North America and Europe. Both the 1350, 1350T and 1370T add lane assist, which highlights the preferred lane for navigation. The 1390T adds junction view allowing drivers to see realistic images of upcoming junctions where available. Lifetime traffic alerts from NAVTEQ Traffic are also included with the 1350T, 1370T and 1390T, enabling drivers to steer clear of traffic accidents, road closures and construction. The nüvi 1370T and 1390T come standard with a traffic receiver that will provide alerts in the coverage areas – no subscription fee is required. The nüvi 1370T and 1390T also feature Bluetooth® hands-free connectivity. The manufacturer's suggested retail price for these models is as follows: nüvi 1300 - $249.99; nüvi 1350 - $299.99; nüvi 1350T - $349.99; nüvi 1370T - $449.99; and nüvi 1390T - $399.99. All models are expected to be available in the second quarter of 2009.
