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: 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!
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.
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.
Summary: It started out nice... Loved the thin profile. Fit into the "sand bag" stand. Used it off and on for about 3 weeks, maybe 10 hours of "on" time. Driving around yesterday, it locked up and essentially became a brick.
Summary: I recieved this unit on June 9, 2010 and it totally died within a week. While out of town on business I tried to turn it on and all I got was a black screen with the word Garmin. Call coustomer support - right. What support?
Summary: I bought this Garmin 1390T after much research and noticed these few negative reviews, but noticed more positive and bought one. I loved the Nuvi during the first few weeks around town in NW Ohio and invested several hours in downloading all of the newest firmware, maps, and other other neat stuff...
Summary: I purchased 2 of these, and within 1 week one unit froze. I contacted Amazon and they were very helpful, and sent a replacement. Meanwhile, the second unit from the original purchase froze and like the first...the only thing on the screen is Garmin. Nothing loads. It flickers only.
Summary: Recently bought the Garmin Nuvi 1390t. After 3 weeks it froze up on loading maps. Has been stuck for a week. We have tried every recommendation from Garmin with no luck. During our search, we found a blog where there were 7 out of 91 other people that were having the same issue. No resolution yet.
