Summary: The main reason why I bought this unit is for the life time traffic. I had a recent long trip this week to virginia and the gps didn't even show the traffic icon most of the time. Further it put me on I-66 E highway where there is bumper to bumper traffic.
Summary: Hi, I have bought several Garmin GPS's over the years.This one started having issues afteer a year or soUnable to find satellite coverage, even in open areas, then the battery started dying after a full ? charge, lasting only 1 hour or so.
Summary: This is a nice GPS and it verbially names the streets that are coming up. There is also a written listing. Sometimes I am unable to look at the screen to read the names due to traffic so the verbal is great.
hate that it never picks the most use of highway routes.

Summary: there is no option to pick 'most use of highways' - each time it would pick local routes. completely hated it until i googled hard enough to solve the routing issue. you have to set the eco mode and ur car profile with 15mpg city and 40mpg highway and use fastest time with it to trick the gps to...

Summary: I bought a Nextar GPS (cheap unit) 3 years ago. It performed well, but offered no map upgrade. I decided to buy another unit and settled on the Garmin 1390T. I enjoyed using it until I tried to get it to avoid interstate highways. There is no option that I can find for that!
lifetime updates BUT not enough free space for the updates...

Summary: I wondered how Garmin would continue to make money selling gps with lifetime map updates, now I know why. The available space on the devices memory is not large enough to update my maps. I even bought a memory card to insert into the device's memory card slot but I could not get that to work either.
Summary: There are a lot of things to like about the Nuvi 1390, but the bugs outweigh the benefits. The audio routinely stops working when a particular file, "mlg_history.db", reaches a critical size. This requires that the unit be attached to a computer and the file deleted.
