Best value due to N. America and Euro maps included
3 April 2013
Summary: Best value in a GPS, if you travel to Europe, it includes all the maps. Be sure to get a 4gb micro SD card, and download and update all the maps. The recent update to Garmins site makes keeping your unit up to date very easy. There were two firmware updates, and North America and Europe map updates. The internal memory only has room for the basic installed maps, so be sure to have a fresh SD card in place before you download the maps. Lifetime traffic is great...
Good product that will come in handy during travels to Europe.

Summary: My only disappointment is that this Garmin version does not announce the expected street name when approaching the turn. This has been an appreciated feature on our previous Garmin GPS models.
Summary: This is my first Garmin GPS. I used to have two Magellan ,and nothing to compare! Garmin is way better than the other brand,well built , and easy to use. Bought this Garmin because I had to travel to Europe, and I need it for driving directions.
Should use route nos. Pricey map updates. A must for international travel.

Summary: Used in USA, England, Germany, Austria, and Holland. Never got it to lock uo to satelite in England. Worked well in other countries. Real life saver. Audio steer Commands more useful than map. Garmin uses the least useful name for streets and routes. If it is HWY 75 in Dallas they will call it North Central Expressway. Fine if you live there. It gets worse when Garmi is giving you an english pronounciation of a German or Dutch local name.
Summary: We bought the Garmin nuvi 1370 because we were going to be traveling in Eastern Europe, where roads are not well marked, and maps are scarce. By and large, it worked well, but there were a few times in which it got confused, and tried to send us on non-existent streets. I suspect that the roads had been modernized somewhat, and the Garmin maps were not quite up to date. You still have to keep your wits about you, and think about what you are doing.
Summary: I bought this device because I went US and Europe so I needed a good road guide for my wife and I while we were traveling. Our experience was great, except a fill places that hasn't updated maps. Problem solved by updating it on the internet. It was necessary a MicroSD chip with at least 8gb. Plus, here in Brazil I bought map update for Latin America, so I have road directions to Europe, North America and Latin America in only on device!
