Summary: This was an "upgrade" from another Garmin model. The old one was, well, old. Maps were no longer accurate and Garmin wanted $90 to update them. So we got this new one with lifetime maps. We thought it would also be better than our old Nuvi 200, but we never imagined it would be worse!
Not impressed with this unit - HATE the Ads... distracting...

Summary: I hate to say it but I am not impressed with this unit. This is my second Garmin Nuvi and I find that in a four years span, the amount on "innovation" with this technology is ZERO!...as far as I can tell. (definitely, not "Steve Jobs" in this company!!
Summary: This nuvi 1350 LMT does not stand up to my expectations!! I had a old nuvi 360 and only reason I got this is for the map updates. But I would say that this not better than the 360 series!! I don't know why Garmin dropped all its successful good old models like 255, 350 etc..
Summary: The sound quality on this unit is very tinny. The biggest disappointment came when we used to map a return trip home from a location we had never before visited. The unit took us over roads that we did not use getting there, one of which was actually dangerous - so narrow that you had to pull over...
Pros: traffic was great. i was amazed how it knew exactly where bad traffic was, and took me down routes I never even knew about despite driving down that was 20 years. very thin and slick, and the CPU seems pretty fast compared to older garmins.
Cons: too easy to steal. that's the only reason i give it only 2 stars. this is the 2nd garmin I've had stolen. but my next GPS I buy will again be a garmin.
Summary: I'm responding to this ad that Garmin/Amazon emailed to me. I do not have this model. But I purchased a Garmin only 2 years ago, and the screen went dead about 6 months after I bought the lifetime maps for that unit only (Nuvi 650). My wife bought the same Nuvi (650) and hers went dead as well.
Summary: I saw many good review so I give it a try. I took it to a trip to Seattle and Vancouver. Frustrated. Just want to specify a few shortcomings. 1. I felt the antenna is kind of weak. It took a long time to lock in to the satellite when start from a new location.
Was far too much trouble. Returned it and bought Magellan 4700.

Summary: I bought this item on the recomendation of a friend. I found it too much trouble to deal with. It finally broke toward the end of my 30-day evaluation and I returned it. It began doing a continuous boot loop of about 5 seconds. Amazon took it back without question.
Summary: The basic operation of getting you to a location you are unfamiliar with works great. Most of the other features are of questionable value. If I where to buy a GPS again, I would get a cheaper unit with out all the 'non-working' features (probably a different brand).
Pros: Easy to use, great for getting you from point a to point b. Has a lot of neat features, like live traffic updates, current speed and speed limit for the road you are on. You can also program the route based on time, distance or economy.
Cons: No computer USB cable provided. No manual provided, you must download and print one. The battery is not user replaceable, you must send the unit back to the factory for battery replacement. The live traffic update is worse than useless- keeps directing me into the worst traffic pile-ups and indic...
