Summary: I have an older Streetpilot 2610, which I have used for years as a motorcycle GPS, it's waterproof, and accurate, but difficult at times to enter an address and have the GPS unit find the address. Street, is sometimes spelled out, sometimes "St." other times the directions are abbreviated, and sometimes spelled out. It also can't be updated past the 2009 maps. The Nuvi 1300LT gps was something I got for free as a gift on a loan.
Summary: Replaced an old Garmin with this one. Nice display, but the touch screen is slow to respond when spelling out an address. I also believe it does not always send you the shortest route when driving. I've followed it a few times on a drive that I normally make,and it's sent me the long way more than once.
Garmin nuvi 1300LMT is excellent and inexpensive device.

Summary: I bought Garmin nuvi 1300LMT Automotive Mountable GPS Receiver to travel to Europe. In my first trip to Austria from the Vien airport to Baden Garmin nuvi 1300LMT was good. Although the settings I found the Russian language, the voice in English only. Unfortunately, the set was not that I need maps of North America, and had to buy a map of Europe. But that does not stop, and would buy it again.
Summary: I purchased the unit as a Christmas present for my wife. We live in a rural area so city driving often flusters her but after receiving it we made a trip to St Louis and instead of waking me outside the city she drove right downtown to where we were staying. For me that was the only test it needed, money well spent. She has found it easy to program and use.
Summary: The Nuvi has already kept me from getting lost. We took a trip on the back roads of Nevada and ended up in Utah. The Nuvi guided us back home. Very easy to use with the touch screen and all the extra information on the screen. I also have a Garmin Street Pilot and have loved it. The Nuvi has a few more features and updates. I bought it because the price was right and I know I can depend on the Garmin name.
