Summary: I'm with all the other one-star ratings. I bought this unit specifically for my European travels and i found myself 120 miles away from my hotel with a dead GPS. I had read Garmin had some quality problems, but hey, it never happens to me! Live and learn. Shame on Garmin!
Summary: I purchase a 1370T for my trip to Europe in July of 2009. The unit functioned for a total of 2 days before dying on me. Here I am having spent $400 for the 1370T, in a foreign country traveling with a dead GPS unit. I guess paper maps still have a purpose.
Summary: This unit would be a great GPS if only it worked. I have the same problem that I see with other reviewers ... eg the unit just shuts off unexpectedly in the middle of navigating. This requires you to restart the unit (during which time you can miss an important turn off).
Summary: Unit locked itself up during the set up process. Returned to Amazon the same day for refund. Unit did pick up satelites and seemed to function well. I updated all software and regestered product online with my pc.
Summary: I bought this gps for a cross country trip. I got the 1370T because I was interested in the European maps and the pedestrian mode. It worked reasonably well for the first 3 weeks, although it got confused sometimes and left me in the middle of nowhere (it once showed me as being in the middle of the...
Summary: Got it because believed the positive reviews. Took it to Europe for a trip. It worked 30% of the time. The rest it would not give directions. It knew where I was, but getting from point A to B would "calculate" up to 42% and be stuck there, regardless of how far point A & B are.
Summary: In some ways this is a much better GPS than my old Nuvi 670, or perhaps it's the age and treatment that my 670 has had, frequently baked too hot to touch and bounced around. Right now the 1370 locks on where the 670 can't quite make it.
Summary: Erratic performance. Used on 4 wk trip including France and driving between VA, IL, MN, and OK. Worked flawlessly for 2 wks and then started acting up. Problems were: (1) Screen went black once despite unit being plugged into cigarette lighter.
Summary: This GPS, ordered in May for $449, was delayed and defective when finally delivered in July. Much time was wasted with Garmin support which finally sent a new but useless power cord. After more phone calls and e-mails, eventually Garmin agreed to replace the whole unit.

Summary: THE BUSINESS MODEL IS THAT THE DEVICE IS AUTOMATICALLY DISABLED SEVERAL MONTHS AFTER PURCHASE SO THAT YOU NEED TO BUY MAP UPGRADES. THE DEVICE DOES NOT THEN HAVE THE CAPACITY OR FUNCTIONALITY TO ACCEPT THE UPGRADE AND THE DEVICE FAILS.
