NEVER BUY AGAIN

ANDRULA, Amazon
13 September 2013
  • 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.

No Motorway Sat Nav

Piece of Mind, Amazon
1 July 2012
  • 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!

Disgraceful

S. Quinn, Amazon
16 June 2012
  • 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

Eighty, Amazon
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...

pollyanna, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this in summer 2011. I visited Weymouth, which has a lot of new roads, and they weren't showing on the Garmin - it instructed me to turn left - but the road no longer existed.

Shutter, Amazon

Travel directions

M. A. Godfrey, Amazon
10 August 2011
  • 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the second GPS I've owned, the first (MIO) was purchased some 9 years ago gave me great service but the mapping became outdated with no way of updating.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.
