Garmin Nuvi 1340 for Europe

suzannehaine, Amazon
17 October 2009
  • Summary: I cannot really trust this. Sometimes, the Garmin Nuvi gets me to the right place and other times it is really off. I don't know if any other brand is any better. My friend has another which works the same.

Nuvi 1340

PaulB, Amazon
20 September 2011
  • Summary: First of all, this SatNav actually works well. Easy to use and intuitive. My only gripe is that there's no option to select 'fastest' route, or 'no motorways'. And it acquires satellites much faster than other GPS units I've used. The downside is that I can't update the maps. And if I could, I could only update the maps once (without paying almost the unit's price again for lifetime updates). This isn't made clear in any pre-purchase information.

A really poor product

Lost in Lincolnshire, Amazon
5 May 2011
  • Summary: I bought this as a replacement for a 5 year old Sat Nav, as it was cheaper to buy a new one than update my old one. I now wish I had updated. After not recognising the new A16 bypass in Lincolnshire (that had been there for a few months) I got home to try to update the product. There is no hand book with this product, so I went online. The update progress was slower than slow and it eventually took over 2 1/2 hours to update.

A Sat-Nav that should be so much better than it is.

Puggers, Dooyoo
18 December 2010
  • Excerpt: In the midst of this foul, unrelenting/scenically seasonal weather (delete as per your preference), it's not much of a time to be on the road - needs must, however, and when those needs find you trudging up motorways and chasing dead ends through unfamiliar city centres, this sleek and sassy Sat-Nav is a minor godsend - at least when it's working. And that's really my major - in fact more or less my only - gripe with the Garmin Nuvi.

Disappointing performance

5150, Amazon
6 October 2010
  • Summary: I had a TomTom Go 550 that broke down on me so I thought I'd go for a different brand. This one came to my attention because of its lower price and free traffic warning. However I was rather disappointed and returned the product back to Amazon. The problems were 1. 95% of the time, the traffic warning says 'poor reception' and doesn't display anything. This is within central London and also with the external aerial attached to the unit 2.

Fazit: Garmin hat mich enttäuscht

Oberschiedsrichter, Amazon
6 February 2014
  • Summary: Garmin Navi 1340 Gesamturteil: nicht begeisternd Wir haben uns im Dezember 2010 für das Nüvi von Garmin entschieden, weil o der Akku angeblich 4 Stunden hält würde o es einen Fußgänger-Modus hatte o lebenslanges Karten-Update anbot Was mir mir gefallen hat: + Größe, Display + der Support hat immer schnell geantwortet, wenn ich Probleme hatte.

Navigatore discreto

  • Summary: Discreto NAvigatore ma non vi aspettate chissà cosa! Meglio Il TomTom come precisione e funzioni. Ho provato a prendere il Garmin per cambiare ma tornerò molto presto al Tom Tom!!!

  • Summary: Nachdem ich mit Garmin sehr gute Erfahrungen gemacht habe, bin ich von diesem Produkt enttäuscht. Während der Fahrt braucht es oft sehr lange, bis ein Satellit gefunden wird und der Weg berechnet werden kann. Viele mittlere-kleinere Ortschaften in Österreich oder Frankreich kennt das Navi nicht. Viel besser funktioniert es, wenn man mittels Postleitzahl sucht, die man aber natürlich auch nicht immer zur Hand hat.

Good navi but . . .

M Cofrin, Amazon
13 January 2013
  • Summary: Our Medion navi was stolen in Italy. The Medion was fairly good but I was actually happy about the loss because it gave me an excuse to buy a Garmin. I was quite surprised at two aspects of the new unit. The speaker quality was very poor. In fact, my wife and I noticed immediately that our stolen Medion was far superior in that regard. Even at low volume it sounded distorted. I returned the unit and another was sent. The speaker on the new unit was also very poor.

Décevant: un bon produit doté d'accessoires douteux

JBlade, priceminister.com
12 October 2012
  • Excerpt: Ce GPS Garmin m'a déçu. Si en soi c'est un bon gps, facile à utiliser, précis, complet et assez rapide et qui possède plein de fonctions aussi utiles que bienvenues, on ne peut en dire autant des accessoires qui l'accompagnent: Le support ventouse ne tient pas bien longtemps fixé au pare brise, ce qui peut occasionner souvent des chutes de l'appareil et l'adaptateur allume cigare de mauvaise qualité m'a laché après 2 utilisations (il ne tenait plus en place, du coup...
