Pros: Even for a novice it is very easy to use very self-explanatory touchscreen but very picky where you touch it, try to be very careful to use the very pointed end of your finger if you have large flat fingers like mine it is a very problematic issue.
Cons: The last trip as I pushed the return trip button it told us our place of residence had moved to only four blocks away from where we had gone about 80 miles from home. It's a good thing I always know how to get back the peevish voice
Summary: Do not like this one as much as I did the old one. The voice on this Garmin is harder to understand. You really have to listen to understand some directions. Voice bothers us more that the former one.
Summary: The Garmin 1350T GPS is fine how ever I really like my SONY GPS better.For the price it will work sufficiently especially with the re chargeable battery. The cord is a bit much but that's because it has the FM connection. I did have a problem with the set up calling the Garmin help desk did solve the issue with a one time map update.
Summary: I bought this item refurbished, and while it works well, the backlight occasionally goes off for no reason. Plus, there's the usual gripe about it not being accurate enough - it often sends me in a very circuitous route, even though I have the "Fastest Route" option checked.
Summary: I purchased the Garmin after my Tom Tom had been stolen from my vehicle. I was told Garmin is a superior product. The factory refurbished product functions properly and is in excellent condition, however it is more difficult to use and doesn't have as many "extras" for download, such as voices. Overall, I would buy a Tom Tom if I had it do to over again.
Summary: The display is better than my older Nuvi model 660, but there are annoying things about this model. Didn't come with a hard copy owner's manual (but that's getting to be par for the course). Doesn't have an AC adapter for charging (again, probably par for the course). If there is a way to track the total miles/time for a trip, I haven't figured out how. The unit still doesn't know which streets are one-way.
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.
