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. This GPS did take us to some godforsaken enclave far from our desired destination once (I'm still scratching my head), but that was only the one time.
Summary: This thing works right out of the box, at least it did for me. I really like that it connects to my phone like a Bluetooth device, and I had very little trouble getting it connected. I can see it might be difficult for those who aren't as tech savvy, but if you've ever connected an ear piece to your phone, you shouldn't have too much trouble.
Summary: I'm an admitted techno-idiot, & I also get lost easily, so I really need this thing. Techno-idiot that I am, I was unable to do whatever it is on my computer to register the device, which would enable me to get the updates. So I guess I'll have to buy another one sooner than I should have otherwise. My limited tech skills notwithstanding, I did learn to operate device, though I do have some trouble with it.
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. I like the way it has the street names and lane assist. It is easy to read and operate. As noted by some of the other reviewers, it takes a long time to download the maps.
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. Besides the missing map, one peculiar thing I noticed about the "bad" unit was that it didn't have the sticker on the side of the box with the serial number on it like the replacement unit that was sent to me (as well as my old 260w which I still have the...
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. She loves the present and i would reccommend the garmin nuvi's in a heartbeat...
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. I have been a Garmin GPS owner for some time and wanted to upgrade my 350 Nuvi with a better map set.
Summary: I have a 3 year history of using Garmin products; my first GPS was from the 260 series. Three months ago I upgraded to the 1390 LMT model. Housed in a glossy black shell case - with a durable rubber backing - the 1390 offered several features I wanted in a new unit. The 4.3" wide screen makes it easier to view at-a-glance while driving. Lifetime map and traffic updates are a plus (new maps are offered quarterly.
Summary: I recently purchased this GPS for a trip and for the most part, really liked it. The lane assist and clear directions were great. Sometimes for no reason it would shut off, probably do to satellite interference but then it would restart and continue on the destination. The one thing that was frustrating and the reason for 4 stars instead of 5, is that you MUST input an address.
