wish it had the free updates

L. Czaja, Amazon
9 November 2013
  • Summary: It serves its purpose, but is now outdated and purchasing the updates is as expensive as buying a new one. I will not buy another one, unless I get free updates with it.

Easy to use but underpowered

K. Lai, Amazon
4 May 2010
  • Summary: Pros: The Garmin user interface is very easy to use. The maps and POI database that I downloaded from the Garmin website are reasonably up to date. The screen is clearly visible even in direct sunlight. Simple point to point routing works quite well. Cons: This unit is severely underpowered.

Doesn't turn on when you need it!

DonGiovanna, Amazon
21 January 2010
  • Summary: Bought this GPS brand new from Sam's Club for $189 plus tax and, after within the first week, encountered problems in getting the machine to turn on, even though it's plugged into the car charger (charger works; shows green light) and on/off button pressed at all angles.

Free Traffic for Life is Not So Free.

R. Cano, Amazon
26 December 2009
  • Summary: This GPS works great, and I agree with many of reviews posted so far. Just know that 'free lifetime traffic alerts' means that you will get pop-up ads on your map display when you are at a stand still. Though there are no pop-ups while you are motion, this is a rather annoying feature.

I like it, but it's not OK

William L. Richards, Jr., Amazon
26 December 2009
  • Summary: If I could have given a rating of 2 1/2 stars, I would have since I like the unit very much, but it's not OK because it stopped working after only two months. I purchased my Garmin nuvi 1350 the first week of June 2009 and by the first week of August it would not pick up the satellites.

Amateur user interface

Mark Schulman, Amazon
26 December 2009
  • Summary: Most tech companies don't allow amateurs to design their user interfaces, because if they did, they'd wind up with products like the Garmin 1350. This is a device designed by people who don't actually get out of the lab very much.

Great GPS, terrible traffic navigation

M. Walker, Amazon
26 December 2009
  • Summary: I purchased the 1350T as an upgrade from my older Garmin. The 1350T is a good GPS device, but I really purchased this for the traffic capabilities with lifetime traffic. I live in Atlanta, which is notorious for traffic, and thought that the 1350T would help me get around backups.

Poor logic

D. Kehrlein, Amazon
26 December 2009
  • Summary: It generally works, but overheats and shuts down for 5-6 hours and makes some really bad navigation decisions. It has traffic info so it wants to take alternate routes, but has no knowledge of real travel times on those roads, so usually it's worse than sticking to the bad traffic route.

Extremely slow to acquire satellites

jmspdx, Amazon
26 December 2009
  • Summary: I love everything about this unit, except that on a cloudy day or when near trees it takes way too long to lock onto satellites. Often, I'm to my destination while it's still hunting. This is my second Garmin. The first, an I-5, was the same way.

My nuvi 1350 is freezing up or will not boot up

Jan Stover, Amazon
26 December 2009
  • Summary: My nuvi 1350 is freezing up or will not boot up, and nowhere on Garmin page when I search for this does it come up with a match, and I know they have other Nuvi's that have done this :( I am sending mine back... I only had it a week, it was fun while it lasted...
