Summary: This garmin was updated on receipt, I return to my holiday home in Spain last month and found that the speeds used by the Garmin product are years out of date for most of the route I travelled.
Summary: This product is so frustrating, when plugged into the car the screen goes dim and you cannot see the roads but only hear the dialogue. I was intending using it tomorrow but could not turn it on, plugged it into my computer and it still would not turn on.
Summary: From the day of purchase, has taken a long time to turn on properly (up to 15 minutes). This has been unsafe as the product not be operated while driving. Also, the screen has been freezing while I am driving.
Summary: Got this a couple of days ago ignoring all the reviews which spoke about how this sat nav keeps taking you into country roads and completely avoids motorways. I was under the impression that something that scores an average of 4 stars across 370 odd reviews can't be that bad. How wrong!
Summary: It is disgraceful that despite the implications of Garmin, you cannot upgrade this item immediately after buying it, for free. They ask you to input serial number to see if you are entitled to free upgrade. But no, you are not!!!!
Garmin Nuvi - The SatNav That Loves Single Track Lanes
15 June 2012
Summary: Since I have had this piece of rubbish I have seen more B roads, single track lanes, country villages and unnamed roads than I ever thought were left in this country. It absolutely refuses to use Motorways, if there is a direct route is steadfastly ignores it and sends me along twisting and turning...
Summary: Had this garmin nuvi for almost 3 months now, and used it recently for taking a 1 week tour of Scotland. It proved to be very unreliable when calculating the routes: - took me off the main roads...
Rubbish - returned after it eventually started rebooting over & over.
17 February 2012
Summary: Returned after 30 days as was just not fit for purpose, a really aweful purchase, terrible. Packed up eventually (rebooting over & over) Could not get updates, endless loop on software updating. Speed camera locations missed. Speed limits often wrong (at leasy 6 that I can recall).
Summary: This is the second GPS I've owned, the first (MIO) was purchased some 9 years ago gave me great service but the mapping became outdated with no way of updating. I checked many reviews and finally selected the Garmin nuvi 1340 as a replacement - huge mistake.
