Bad Traffic

Syed Abdul Sathar, Amazon
26 May 2014
  • 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.

Dissapointed

senior, Amazon

  • 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!

Bugs, not features

gener8or, Amazon
16 October 2011
  • 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.

GARBAGE

Rusty, Amazon
18 May 2011
  • Summary: Let me preface this review by saying I'm a long time Garmin user and have had 4 prior Garmin units. With that said, this model is terrible. I live in NJ and for whatever reason this unit refuses to take me on the Garden State Parkway.

Horrible GPS!

T-mo customer, Amazon
2 May 2011
  • Summary: I need GPS to help me find things. This one can't even tell correctly the Highway I am on! When you turn it on it takes 10 min to find satellites - what I am suppose to just sit in the car and wait? Loses satellites every two-tree minutes - very annoying! I will bever buy anything Garmin ever again!

Garmin Nuvi 1390T

jdej, Amazon
5 November 2010
  • Summary: This is my second Garmin. Unfortunately, this unit is not what I expected. If you make a stop, it would not return back to the route you where going. At one point in route to North Carolina, it was pointing me to go through secondary roads, instead of I77.

  • Summary: I am on a 30 minute wait to get an RMA from Garmin's nightmare support. This unit kept giving me erroneous directions and shutting down. Finally it wouldn't wake up. I will never buy from this company again.

Don't buy this model!!

  • Summary: Started out with the 760. Loved it, used it constantly, lost it in San Fran... Looked into another. Wanted traffic this time and saw that there is now "Lane Assist" so went for those options, plus Bluetooth and came up with this 1390t.

Known software problem

Lunachick, Amazon
1 July 2010
  • Summary: I bought 3 of these for family members. Within 2 months they all have crashed. Called Garmin, they called it an "endless reboot" and told me there is no known fix for this. Back to the store it goes!!!!
