Summary: I bought this Garmin almost exactly 2 years ago. At the beginning it was fine, then about a year in I started having issues with it charging. I always had the Garmin plugged in when I was using it, and unplugged it when I was done.
Summary: I like the unit as a navigator but I genuinely hate false advertising. This unit claims to have lifetime map updates, but it is impossible to do, because the unit's power preservation function turns the unit off before the updates can complete. So it is literally impossible to do.
Summary: I am not sure what is wrong with this device, but it does not navigate properly. I have unselected all of the avoidance settings (avoid u-turns, toll roads, HOV lanes, traffic, etc) and selected the fastest route.
Summary: I have used Many Garmin systems. 205, 255, 255W, this one is horrible. Why do you buy a GPS? To get quick directions and reliable reception. This one loses reception while passing under a small two lane overbridge and also takes forever to calculate the distances and get directions.
Summary: My first Garmin 1350t would shut down after about 10 to 15 min of use. They sent me a referb and on my last cross country trip it shut down twice. Both at key times, once when I had to call my husband at 5:00 AM in order to get directions. I love how it works...when it works.
Summary: Very disappointed as my unit broke after only two days. I installed all the latest software and latest maps - an easy enough process on my mac but today on its maiden voyage home the unit won't turn on properly. Just kept resetting displaying the logo for a brief second or two and then resets again.
Summary: I bought this unit thinking that it would be a nice upgrade from my 255w, but I was really disappointed. Reroute calculations are slower than the previous versions, and it continously freezes up when I received incoming calls, that is the weaker point from new Garmin software.
Summary: Purchased the DPS to replace an older version for a long trip. Was very pleased with the 1350t, as it had new features I liked and was reasonably priced and easy to use. About six hours out while cruisong down the interstate, it just went blank.
Summary: I will leave my old review, but I should update it now that a few months have passed. If you read below, you'll see that my Garmin suddenly stopped working and had a variety of other small glitches.
