so far a waste of money

bennam, Amazon

  • Summary: The unit keeps sending me in the wrong direction. It also has the voice of a little child which is very annoying. I stopped using it. This is my first GPS so I am very disappointed. I also received the instructions in French which I was able to resolve,but it was an omen of worse to come.

THIS WILL BE MY LAST GARMIN

A. Brown, Amazon
31 March 2011
  • Summary: Like the title says, this will be my last Garmin. When a good company goes bad and starts slipping in spam advertising garbage into their units and not warning you about it in the item description (this goes for you too AMAZON), that's it for me. Free traffic ? NOT. In order to get traffic updates, you have to have the advertising spam turned on, and they don't tell you that before you buy, and neither did Amazon.

I would not buy this

  • Summary: If you are going to use this for city use only it will do a good job. For long over the road travel, make sure you bring a map and check your route. #1 the blue tooth is worthless, the other end can hear you but you cannot hear what the person is saying to you, I finally disabled it. Traffic, not sure what good it does, changes from green to red, by that time you know you are stuck in traffic.

Garmin Nuvi 1390

doxland, Amazon
22 October 2011
  • Summary: While this GPS worked well for the first few months. It became apparent that I had to start using the free updates offered because of old or changing data. Obstacle #1 "Your operating system is not supported" I was not willing to spend several more hundred dollars on a compatible computer or operating system so went to a friend who had a MS operateing system installed and he let me use his computer.

Purchase this if you want to get lost!

Scouser Dave "True Blue", Amazon

  • Summary: This is my second sat-nav my first being a Garmin Streetpilot c510T. I upgraded to a new model because my maps could no longer be updated and I thought that this Garmin would be as reliable as my previous one. As we were planning a three week travelling holiday I thought it a good time to upgrade. What a mistake.

GREAT GPS JUST DROPED TO OK

HOGG "ED SCHROEDER", Amazon
6 June 2011
  • Summary: The Garmin 1390LMT is a great GPS. We have used it only around familiar territory so far, but we like to do that before we take it out on the road. Next month we hope to take it for a drive to the Black Hills and we will see truely how how it is. But so far we love all the features this GPS has. The lane assist will be a big asset once we get out on freeways. The elevation feature is always nice for curiosity.

Unredliches Geschäftsgebaren von Garmin

RF, Amazon
1 June 2014
  • Summary: Garmin hat sich von den Käufern die Option "Lifetime Map Update" mit einem hübschen Aufpreis bezahlen lassen und dafür versprochen, über die gesamte Benutzungsdauer des Gerätes die jeweils aktuellsten Karten bereit zu stellen. Wörtlich heißt es in der Bewerbung des Gerätes: "...ohne Zusatz-Kosten stets aktuelle Karten...". Nun, nach noch nicht einmal 2,5 Jahren beginnt Garmin, dieses Gerät nicht mehr mit den aktuellsten Karten zu versorgen.
