Summary: When I first got it, you had to keep touching the same buttons over and over to get it to do anything, then when you wanted to go "back" you would hit the "back" button and it would send you to whatever was above.
Summary: I have the older bulkier Garmins they made a few years ago and recently bought this one. The verdict, the new 'sleek' Garmins absolutely stink. The screens are less sensitive. The keyboard buttons are tool small now.
Amazon has great customer service but the product is awful!

Summary: I purchased this product for a long road trip following a wonderful three year relationship with another Garmin GPS system. When I received this GPS, there were only two voices available - my understanding is that most have MANY options - this was annoying, but not worth returning the system.
Summary: I am disappointed in the quality of the aerial photos on the vision card. If you zoom in closer than 0.3 miles, the photo becomes pretty pixilated. Luckily, I bought it for plotting courses. It works nice for that. Would buy again at the price I paid, but not at the $400.00 sticker price.
Summary: This GPS does not have some of the best features my old Garmin GPS has. One of the most important features missing is the speed limit of the road you are on. I work in the northern Virginia and DC area. Speed limits on roads can switch from 55 to 35 in the blink of an eye.
Summary: We purchased our first Garmin nuvi 660 in 2007 for over $1000. We loved it! Sadly, its life ended far too soon (for the cost) and we had to replace it. After considerable research, we settled on the Garmin nuvi 1300LM.
Summary: I bought this for my parents had it sent to their home. They have just taken out of the box and had someone helping them with it. Found out that the charger for the GPS is broken. The little silver piece that is on the charger is missing.
Summary: Have had 5 garmins always just buy new one instead of paying the $75 to update maps. Thought the free updates would eliminate this problem. This gps works ok but It will lose the map all the time showing you driving on no road. You have to page back on the menue and resent all the time.
Summary: Yesterday I bought Garmin 1300 for our second car. I was curious to compare the performance of Garmin 1300 with that of my old Garmin 255W GPS. Garmin 1300 is sleek and has attractive display. Response wise Garmin 1300 was no better than Garmin 255W.
Summary: I recently spent a two week vacation in the USA. I was planning to do a lot of driving so decided to buy myself a GPS the day I arrived. I had previously researched GPSs and decided that I liked the interface of Garmin the best.
