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: 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!!!!
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: Unclear directions, telling me to turn right when I need to continue on the same road, letting me know about turnings too late, taking me the wrong routes, not distinguishing on the map from the road to continue on and the road I have come from - poor, poor sat nav.
Summary: I bought the Garmin Nuvi 1340 to replace a 6 year old Tomtom and because it came with European maps. I have used it now in the UK and in Europe for six months. I have waited this long to avoid me simply reporting problems because I am unfamiliar with the device.
Summary: I bought this product to replace a very old TomTom but in operation in the UK, France & Germany it has turned out to be pretty useless. It denies the existence of long established roads and postcodes which I know exist and the pronunciation of French & German place names had my wife and me ROFL.
Garmin Nuvi - The SatNav That Loves Single Track Lanes
27 December 2011
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: I have had to use it 4 times to find unknown addresses, which is the reason for purchase.I have entered the post code and it has sent me on a wild goose chase. Yesterday I entered the PC and then the street, it would not me let finish writing the street which was a two word address and insisted it...
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.
