Summary: I changed from TomTom to Garmin a few years ago and have been delighted with my 1390 (4.3") so I have recently purchased a 1440 (5") and intend to pass on the 1390 to another member of the family. However this time everything was not quite so perfect.
Summary: Had this since Christmas 2012, has a tendency to take the 'pretty route' and country lanes but very easy to use, very quick to 're calculate' if you miss an exit or turn, and finds satellites very quickly, even in the middle of nowhere. Definitely recommend Garmin
Summary: I love it now...it took some getting used to though. I had a problem where the map display changed and was horrible, hard to follow...didn't do anything and it was back to brilliant again.. Overall, good navigation just a little more complicated than the TomTom I had.
