Summary: My wife and I couldn't have done what we did this winter without this GPS. Registering and updating can be a confusing mess. My micro-SD card popped out and I lost my maps at one point between trips (thankfully, I checked it before leaving), but it works beautifully once it's up and running.
Summary: We've had a Garmin GPS for several years and were looking to update the maps. It was almost as much to purchase map updates as to buy a new GPS with lifetime map updates. I was able to purchase the Garmin 1390LMT for $115. So far it has been a great unit.
Summary: OK, I felt compelled to update by review that had me give this item a terrible rating. It turns out the unit I originally received was a dud, or something that had been purchased before, returned and resold to me.
Summary: i purchased the 1390LMT for my friends birthday. she wanted the free lifetime maps and traffic....It was easy to program. We did not test the traffic...I have an older garmin 265m,which has never failed me...The 1390LMT does give you more of a precise lane to be in on freeways etc.
Summary: After the 1390LMT was lost in shipment the seller offered a 1350LMT, from what I can tell the only difference is the lack of Bluetooth; no problem as I likely would not have used this feature. So, the Garmin Nuvi 1350LMT is what I received.
Summary: I always thought I will not really need a GPS since I always know where I am going, and if I don't I will simply google map the route. I still believe google maps is superior in their choice of routes, but I don't have google in my car! An irresistible deal came to me for a Garmin Nuvi 205W.
Summary: I'm more familiar with Garmin's "On The Trail" models like the eTrex, GPSMAP, and Legend units, but the learning curve is quite easy on this "On The Road" Nüvi 1390LMT. I bought it because it has lifetime map upgrades and lifetime FM traffic.
