No Memory I would stay away from This!

j. laughren, Amazon
20 August 2012
  • Summary: I ordered this GPS to add to my collection of Garmins. It has many nice features, inlcuding blue tooth, lifetime maps and traffic. The only problem is that you cannot update the maps as it has little internal memeory. If you want to update your GPS you cannot as it cannot hold the map update, so you have to spend more money and buy a memory card. Come on Garmin do you really want to lose customers over cheap memory?

Map Update Feature Fails.

Lee J. Manning, Amazon
22 June 2011
  • Summary: I was disappointed with the Garmin Software Support for this item. As it arrived, it was fully functional. I used the online service to update the maps almost immediately, and this process failed repeatedly, leaving the unit empty of usable maps. Garmin Support eventually insisted in speaking to me directly over the phone, and they talked me through the deletion of numerous items such as foreign language voice support from the nuvi, as the issue seemed to be a memory...

Traffic is not free, it's ad supported

J. Suarez "j.benjamin", Amazon
17 November 2010
  • Summary: It does everything I bought it to do, and it does it well. The problem is I PAID for this item, and they have no right to show me ads. Today I accidentally clicked on an ad and it froze up on me. I called costumer support, and they told me my only options are to turn off traffic, or to pay them another $50 dollars.

Disappointment

Jafar, Amazon
1 December 2012
  • Summary: Bought this product on Black Friday for a huge discount. I can say it is worth what I paid for (not the original price!) this Garmin Nuvi 1390 LMT is very slow and lags a lot!!! (I am writing this comment in my first day using it), I had to reset it several times because of the lagging. therefore, the quality is 2 stars out of 5. Pro: Bluetooth hands free..... Con: doesnt show the names nor saying who is calling. Pro: Lots of POI (point of interests)....

London commuters avoid this one

D. Stan, Amazon
31 January 2012
  • Summary: This satnav is good, easy to use and friendly, but it won't avoid the Congestion Charge zone in London, even though you specifically tick the box 'Tolls' in the Tools->Avoidances. I mean, from Wandsworth (zone 2) to Euston (border zone 2), the route always comes near to Waterloo and Westminster (congestion zone 1) regardless on what I am trying to avoid. Even Google Maps is much better, when you tick the "Avoid Tolls" it puts you thru Hammersmith and Paddington (zone 2).

highs and lows

Mr. Philip J. King, Amazon
2 May 2011
  • Summary: Some aspects of this unit are great. It fires up quickly, it finds satellites quickly but its route choices are strange. Traffic reporting is free, but today i was in traffic on the A55 coming from North Wales, for 20 miles and at no time did it know!!. I hoped this unit would be the one to replace my TomTom, but I am sorry, its just not ready yet.

Multiple intermittent problems

T. Hewison, Amazon
11 March 2011
  • Summary: Since purchasing this product I have encountered multiple problems, which are just getting worse to the point the device is unreliable. Despite updating the system software again this week, (using WebUpdater) I still suffer from multiple intermittent problems: 1. It is always slow too start - typically 3 minutes, but sometimes much longer. 2. Often there is no sound until I turn it off and on again. I estimate this happens about 1 in 4 times I turn it on. 3.

Avolte sembra funzionare ed a volte no!

Martina, amazon.it
4 September 2012
  • Summary: Ho comprato il Garmin a dicembre del 2011. Lo utilizzo per tutti i viaggi in macchina o camper che dobbiamo fare e devo dire che non so come valutare l'articolo A volte sembra funzionare perfettamente e a volte la voce registrata indica di svoltare a destra quando invece l'immagine mostra di svoltare a sinistra!
