Summary: I bought this unit for my mother who likes to travel. She is pleased with the way that it operates and found it easy to navigate with the voice turn-by-turn instructions. She also liked the ability to search for specific places/attractions along her route. Overall, I'd say this is a WIN!
Summary: After getting lost driving from Brussels to France, we stopped in a Carrefour (France's version of Wal-Mart) and bought this GPS for 130 Euros (about $190). We drove around 5 different European countries and were never lost again. It speaks the street names and has a relatively wide screen. Don't even consider driving in Europe w/o a GPS. . .The round-around-abouts (traffic circles) and constantly changing street names will drive you crazy.
Summary: Bought a cheaper item to protect my touch screen satnav, but soon replaced it with a SWIDO screen protector. The SWIDO is much thicker , looks better , doesn't show fingerprints , and is non-reflective . Much better for this type of device . I also fitted SWIDO to my touch screen digital camera . Excellent product .
Summary: Having owned and tested this satnav for over 2 weeks i felt compelled to write a review. Had a Nuvi 255T for 2 years prior to purchasing this one - great satnav but with outdated maps and no longer fit for european journeys. I wanted to buy something reasonably priced yet fit for the purpose. And after a long search and review reading, i decided to go for 1340 model.
Summary: Garmin Nuvi 1340 4.3" Sat Nav with UK and Western Europe Maps This is a must have essential car accessory. I purchased this product from/thru Amazon and was amazed by the amount of features included. Beginning with opening the box, it was a pleasant surprise to find an indoor 3pin plug charger included for the device when I was already thinking this would count as an additional extra purchase.
Summary: This item has been checked out and it will take you to the correct point, but sometimes not by the shortest or more convenient route. In my opinion it is not as good as my old Tom Tom, and it does give slightly misleading directions such as; take the third exit on the roundabout, when the road on which you are entering the roundabout is classed as the first and means that you take the second exit.
