Summary: I had couple Garmin product which I had very good overall experience with, hence I purchased this, the main reason to pick this model is because it had "lifetime" map update and also "lifetime traffic". How ever my experience with this one was far worse than I could ever imagine. Pro: 1. It's a garmin, the interface is familiar for people had garmin before. 2. life time map update 3. life time traffic update 4.
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?
Summary: Unfortunately I am not super happy with this purchase. Aside from the complicated map updating (needed customer support and they instructed me to use the "unrecommended download option"), the navigator does not recognize my address or certain local roads in my area. It suggests I make incorrect turns and in one case took me around in circles 4 times till I decided it was not doing what my simple MetroPCS phone navigator could do.
Summary: I've owned an old nuvi 360 for many years and marvel at the little beast. I named the unit Moana because she has a voice with an attitude, straight from Brooklyn...a real nasal "recalculating"! Anyhow the old 360 has the Bluetooth feature, and it syncs in automatically with my phone, (after original pairing process)and works flawlessly. Since Radio Shack had a sale on the 1390LMT for only $169 I figured I'd upgrade but it was a BIG mistake!
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.
Summary: I've used this GPS for several weeks now and when it is fully charged it is absolutely great. The voice is loud and clear, the maps are accurate and detailed. It acquires satellites quickly, even in less than optimal circumstances with trees overhead or tall buildings nearby. It is easy to program and the onscreen menus are convenient. It is thin and reasonably light and portable and the screen is big.
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)....
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).
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.
