Cons: Couldn't find specific retail shop or on the other spectrum, the DMV under "DMV" or "Department of Motor Vehicles". The touch sensitivity was virtually non-existent and you must type in complete names to find something (i.e. no auto-complete functionality
Pros: Big screen. Some traffic reports. Voice directions
Cons: Not programmed to take into consideration traffic congestion in my area. Voice directions are often unintelligible and at times pronunciation is ludicrous. One cannot rely on it to get you from here to there quickly and with minimum hassle.
Undependable -- Poor Warranty and Return Policy as Well
F.S. Maude "Dan", Amazon
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. Even worse, the next day I left home for 30 days of temporary duty for the Army. When I returned from duty, the Amazon return window had expired.
Summary: I asked Garmin for money back and want to never deal with them again. This is the second unit (different model first) to fail for me while under warranty.
Cons: This unit failed at 5 mounts due to software causing what appears to be a hardware problem. GARMIN wants me to return the unit. Due to all the grief, I asked for money refund. First indication of problem was unit black screen of death and after that unit would not boot up. Also, touch screen never worked correctly even after calibration of screen.
Summary: I had this unit for three days, and then, NOTHING but the boot logo. When it worked it was great, much faster then my old 660. Garmin needs to evaluate their quality control as I have seen other reviews with the same problems.
Cons: Auto clock does not give correct time and manual setting do not give correct time. Changing between displays is awkward. Speed limit for roads and MPH share adjacent space and speed limit can easily be confused with MPH.
