Summary: I sent it back to Amazon. Two issues: When I tried to download the map updates, of which you get 1 free update of North America and Europe, I was told I could only download a portion of what was currently on the GPS, because there was not enough room. So, if I wanted current maps, I could no longer have Canada, Central & Eastern Europe. I can live without Eastern Europe, so I downloaded Western Europe, or at least tried.
Summary: After 14 months in service (3 trips total) our unit developed a software glitch causing it to crash on start up. Multiple efforts to restart the unit and refresh the operating system were unsuccessful. Our unit had suffered no physical trauma and light use as it is a backup for rental cars on trips; we have built in Navigation in our own cars.
Summary: If you buy this unit, BEWARE that you only get to update ONE of the two map sets that are installed on the device. NOWHERE in Amazon's pages is this mentioned. You find out once you've registered. I used to like Garmin, but now this will likely be my last Garmin product!
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. At the time I received the unit I also purchased A city map of Athens. To garmin's credit they replaced the unit in September when I returned. Though it did little to ease my pain. Now the icing on the cake.
Summary: I purchased the Garmin as a replacement of my Tom Tom that became damaged during a trip, (a cracked screen.) I travel to Europe frequently and depend upon my GPS to navigate. Recently during my last visit two weeks ago I used my Garmin for the first time. It turned out to be a very critical time as well; I found myself and three others traveling across Europe by car to find an open airport during the volcano shutdown of northern Europe.
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). Also, the unit periodically just decides by itself to go into MUTE mode and stops talking. A piece of junk. I will be returning mine.
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. It would not function with my Mac, got an error message that said browser, Safari, was not supported. The key board is in alphabetical order, are you kidding. Takes forever to enter an address to load maps.
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 Chicago river). From the beginning, the gps would periodically shut down but I could always push the power button and it would turn back on.
