Undependable -- Poor Warranty and Return Policy as Well
4 August 2010
Summary: My Garmin Nuvi 1350T GPS Navigator stopped working after less than 2 hours of automotive use. It's the same problem described by other reviewers -- it stays permanently on the boot screen. Worse, I could not contact Garmin's warranty service because it was a weekend.
Summary: I ordered the item and received it in a timely manner. I was happy with it. Then I started testing it immediately. It confirmed the disapointing features someone listed out previously: the battery indicator won't show when you need it most.
Summary: I owned a Magellan portable gps for years and it finally broke. I did a long search on the available gps units and opted for one with traffic assist. It is supposed to route you the fastest route, avoiding traffic. What a crock! It will lead you right into stopped traffic.

Summary: I BOUGHT THIS GPS WITH LIFETIME MAP UPDATES BUT I HAVEN'T BEEN ABLE TO UPDATE THE MAPS, NOT A SINGLE TIME. I'M NOT GOING TO PAY FOR MAPS UPDATES SINCE I'M SUPPOSED TO HAVE LIFETIME UPDATES. PLEASE SEND ME A REFUND OR A 1350LMT THAT CAN BE UPDATED. THANKS, ZOILA
Summary: Let me preface this review by saying I owned the previous model and overall was happy with it. While there are some nice upgrades to the new model, it would be difficult to see how Garmin could have screwed up the software any worse.
Summary: This unit does not have enough memory to download the maps. Garmin advertises a lifetime update offer but when I contacted them about my initial download, they told me I would have to purchase an additional "card" to hold the information.
Summary: While the product is good on its own, there are a couple of problems. It is discontinued and Garmin does not support the map availability on their site. I am limited to only the SE US area, but no place else.
Summary: I am returning, advertisements pop-up all the time. Did not know it was this bad when ordered. Very sneaky of Garmin, they have lost me as a customer. Also, the routing is terrible compared to the old one, crazy routes even from work to home. Please avoid.
