Free Live Traffic = advertisements

Anonymous, Newegg
3 March 2012
  • Summary: this negative attribute should be included in description
  • Pros: more responsive (less delayed response on screen) and better signal reception than earlier models.
  • Cons: One big annoyance - especially since it is not openly mentioned anywhere, is that in order to have Lifetime Live Traffic you have to suffer from popup coupons that obscure part of the map. I finally received a response from Garmin who stated this is what pays for the Free traffic. You can disable the advertising, but only by disabling the free traffic.

multi language UI

Morgan L., Newegg
15 December 2011
  • Summary: This is my 3rd GPS navigator. 2 were stolen. If you are looking for a low cost navigator, from my exp., skip this one. this one is good ONLY for the life time traffic service; which I have not tested yet. Hope to be as good as my traffic subscription on my nuvi 205w.
  • Pros: Life-time traffic service is great.
  • Cons: not as responsive as the previous Nuvi 205W. language UI does not stay in memory; reset to English after every restart or hot restart. mechanical voice prompts.

Defective screen

concombrefrais, Ebay
7 October 2010
  • Summary: The unit I recieved had a defective screen and it was difficult to enter an address. The touch screen was shifted to the left, so when you press say "w" on the qwerty keyboard, you get either nothing or you get "q". Only if you type on the extreme right of a letter you get it. Extremely annoying. After talking to the seller, I re calibrated the screen and it fixed my problem. The touch screen is not very sensitive however and it is still not very easy to type.

Be Aware

privateeye-old, Ebay
6 October 2010
  • Summary: If you bid be aware that Garmin does no longer provide either a wall charger or a usb or case with this unit. You will have to purchase them and that's over $30.00 more. I sold my car so couldn't use the lighter to charge or get updates. This was only tangentially referred to in description. Like most former Garmin users I assume these would come with. Otherwise thus far it works the way it is supposed to.

A lot for a little

aia01, Ebay
3 September 2010
  • Summary: I got this as a reconditioned unit to carry in the car we tow behind a motorhome - the motorhome has the main Garmin, this was just a little add-on. However, I soon found this updated software (and more current map database) to be highly attractive. Couple of problems: I like to have both the direction of travel and the time to arrive shown on the screen, with this unit it seems to be an either/or.

Not as Good as expected

Walmart
20 June 2010
  • Summary: I came over from a Magellan that I had for 2 yrs which was quirky at times with directions...and expected more from Garmin. While the directions always seem to be pretty good (after 1 month of usage) It makes me miss my Magellan abit (which I thought I would never say). 1)The Traffic is very rarely correct in NYC (don't know about other cities) and many times does not show traffic alerts. If you live in NYC, do not buy this unit for the traffic updates.

Decent GPS, Great Price

Walmart
12 June 2010
  • Summary: From all research, this appeared to be a unit with a fair amount of bells and whistles. My previous experiences were with more basic, older units. The screen size is large enough to offer good visibility. No problems with the audio as others have reported. It is a little sluggish compared to older units when finding locations like stores and restaurants. Out of the box, the maps seemed a little outdated. I did an update and found no improvement.

Dead pixel

Anonymous, Newegg
5 December 2009
  • Summary: I hope I could buy the best product at Newegg compare to amazo,buy,B&H,etc. Hope there could have a new policy on LCD all product that have screen. For example, you could easily change the Laptop if there is any dead pixel in Singapore. Thanks! Why still 8 dead pixels, that's really out of date.
  • Pros: Gramin 1350t is better than my friend's 255w. And the agent give me $?? refund for the dead pixel which make me a little happy.
  • Cons: I wish there was no blue dead pixel on my 1350t's screen. I don't care too much about that. I am just worried there would be more dead pixels which would make the screen down. So I hope newegg extend the warranty insead of refund.
