Lots of features, some are worth it.

G. Jeffries, Amazon
17 December 2011
  • Summary: I watched this GPS for a while and waited for the price to drop and got a good deal. If I had paid retail I would be very upset. First of all, the Bluetooth works with my Blackberry Curve, except no one can hear me and to get the audio loud enough it becomes very distorted.

lifetime updates BUT not enough free space for the updates...

A. Mark, Amazon
6 December 2011
  • Summary: I have a Garmin 1390 and I went to update the maps this year and there is not enough space on the device for the update. There is not even enough space for just the lower 48 states.

Great in the car. Horrible UPDATER software!

Julie M Richey, Amazon
6 December 2011
  • Summary: I admit I'm not a techie, but this is ridiculous. I attached the Garmin to the computer, where I registered the product after receiving it a year ago. I have all the necessary apps already on the computer. Did the updates on the software. It keeps trying to "detect the device,"but no luck.

Great GPS... No room for map updates

Dave, Amazon
6 December 2011
  • Summary: GPS is great. Glad it came with lifetime map updates, however, don't expect to put new map updates on the internal memory of your new GPS as there is not enough space. You may want to buy a microSD card if you plan on updating the maps.

Adds while driving.

Papa Carlo, Amazon
22 November 2011
  • Summary: I got this GPS from another store. Out of the box I noticed it had two stuck pixels. This might be not a big deal but it is very visible when driving at night and is kind of annoying. The more important issue that just struck me is popup ads on the screen. Every time you start driving you see them.

Did not live up to expectations

SandtrapII, Amazon
18 February 2011
  • Summary: This unit replaced one from a different company whose battery died suddenly and refused to be recharged. The selling features for me were the blue tooth capability (that I admit I have not used in the month I have owned the unit) and the live traffic feature.

It's a mixed bag but overall is pretty good

Garmin 1390LMT: Lifetime Maps but limited memory and difficult process to install updates

WL, Amazon
16 December 2011
  • Summary: Garmin 1390LMT comes with great features and is very intuitive to register, set-up and use. I purchased primarily for my trip to Boston and it worked but it's not without it's quirks.
