Summary: The first time I used it, it wanted to take me West instead of East. These are one way streets, fortunately I knew the way there. That was a bust. I thought I might have bought a dud. The rest of the time, only a few, it gave me the correct directions. Sometimes in a round about way, but it got me there. Doesn't tell traffic detours or construction. It does tell me to get into the proper lane for turning though.
Summary: I do like the product,it works as advertised. I did think it came with blue tooth. When it didn't I was disappointed, but it works well does what it was designed to do, get me places without a hassle. The build in voice is clear and gives directions in enough time to maneuver to turn or exit. The screen size is large enough to see without issue. I would recommend this GPS. Hope this is what you require.
Pros: This unit so far has been very nice. I have tested it on a couple of short routes, and it has performed very nicely. The maps are up to date, and will stay up to date for free. It is very easy to read, and see where you are.
Cons: Sometimes the screen is a little unresponsive. I have gotten lost in a couple of menus trying to change things. I wish it had bluetooth capability.
Summary: I have owned this Garmin NUVI 1350T for several months now. I have used it many times in my car and it navigates well. There have been a few times that it became confused, but after I made the wrong turn the Garmin was able to get me back on track. I purchased this device with Lifetime Map updates. So today I am doing my first free map update. Had I known that the process would take more then 3 hours I would have done it on a day I had more time.
Summary: The unit does not aquire satellites as quickly as expected. It is not slow either. I would rate it at average. Over all the unit performs well and I have not found any major issues with it as of yet.
Pros: Compact, Easy Menus, Easy To Read, Easy To Set Up, Simple Controls
Summary: Very easy to use! It works well and I don't know how you'd find one better at this price. Let's you choose favorite places, voices, and mode of travel (faster, shorter, cheaper) very easily in the "tools" menu.
Summary: I have a more basic Nuvi and have been very satisfied with its intuitive operation so I decided to purchase another Garmin for my wife. I purchased the Nuvi 1350T because I wanted the traffic updates along with all the other features of a GPS. Although this feature does not always give me enough advance notice, it does provide some traffic information. Some reviews have warned that the pop-up ads are annoying, but I find them to be of little annoyance.
