  • 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...

lifetime updates BUT not enough free space for the updates...

A. Mark, Amazon

  • 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.

Extremely Poor Reliability

  • Summary: After much research and knowing a Garmin engineer, I purchased a Garmin 1390 unit. For the first 8 months it worked great. So great I purchased two more units for our adult children. Our daughter was going on a long car trip and she was very happy to receive this as a gift.

  • Summary: This unit has a known software incompatibility issue that prevents the bluetooth pairing with cell phones. Garmin is aware of this problem but has offered no firm date as to when it will be fixed.

User Review

  • Summary: How does the lifetime traffic work? Have yet to figure this out... Directions are accurate about 95% or the time. Lane assist is part of the problem with this, but usually accurate. Very quick and responsive.

Not as Expected

Walmart
12 June 2010
  • Summary: I thought by paying such a price , I will get something which is very accurate. But this is not the case, i cross a road and then it tells me to turn right and left :( and since I have crossed the road it recalculates. Its late in saying the road info most of the times.

I thought I could trust it

Amazon Customer, Amazon
5 June 2010
  • Summary: I bought this GPS a month ago and I tested every function immediately. Everything looked fine. So I gave the old Garmin( Nuvi 200) to someone else, thinking I wouldn't need that at all, since I have this much advanced one. Then I took the GPS for a long drive to another state.

Ok GPS, terrible speaker, City Xplorer DOES NOT WORK!

Brian Wilson, Amazon
27 July 2009
  • Summary: I have bought, owned, and used 7 different Garmin units of various sizes including the 330 series that kind of evolved into the Nuvi, Rino, and others. I wanted to try out the new City Xplorer feature in this 1390T -> and the summary is City Xplorer JUST DOES NOT WORK!
