Well worth it to upgrade from a more basic Garmin model!
11 June 2011
Summary: This was a last minute purchase when our Garmin Nuvi 660 died two days before our flight to Italy. I had a hard time deciding whether it was worth it to get to spend the money to upgrade to the Nuvi 1350T, or whether we should get a more basic model.
Summary: I have tried several GPS units over the years such as and the and other Garmin, Magellan, and Tom-TOM units... I am happy to say that the Garmin NUvi 1350T is my absolute favorite! One thing thing to consider is that the 1350T only comes with one (1) enhanced feature - traffic updates.
Summary: We have been so pleased with our Garmin 1350T (purchased last summer), that we have ordered two more as Xmas gifts this year. We've used it in the far reaches of northern Maine as well as through confusing traffic and streets in Manhattan, Bronx, North Jersey, & Washington, DC.
Summary: After reviewing and comparing prices on numerous garmin models. I finally decided upon the 1350T. The widesreen is a great feature, speaks the street names. Traffic updates are good for metro areas. Lane assist feature is decent but only is active in metro areas.
Summary: I bought this GPS as a gift for my husband and we both love it. It is easy to use, and a great size. The update takes 2 hours but you can get it ready and just walk away while it is updating its maps. The search finds businesses everytime, and this system even finds back roads at ease.
Summary: It's rare to find a product that offers just those features you are looking for and leaves off those you really don't need or want. With the Garmin Nuvi 1350t you don't have to accept any compromises - at least I didn't.
Summary: The 1350 replaced a 2 year old Mio 300 GPS that died. I use this GPS unit every day of the week and driving about 500 miles a week. The life time free map updates and free traffic were a big incentive for me. The Garmin interface is well designed and easy to use.
Summary: Feature-wise this version is very similar to 255W. It does come with an improved user interface, along with a faster CPU (the whole thing feels more responsive), and lane assist (which I've never gotten the chance to see in my town in the middle of nowhere).
Summary: I have owned varies Garmin GPS systems in the past. I like the new things they have added to make the unit easier to use and the way things are shown on the screen. I like the way it shows my speed and the fact that it shows the speed limit right next to that.
Summary: As an owner of a service company, we have to venture into areas that are unfamiliar. Laptops are cunbersome to operate in the car and that is far more than what we need and mapbooks are outdated before the ink drys.
