Garmin nüvi 1690

PC Magazine
13 November 2010
  • Conclusion: Garmin's impressive nüvi 1690 integrates connected services and offers plenty of routing options, but the high price and mandatory ads—even when you're not using said services—are turn-offs.
  • Pros: Accurate directions. Slick software design. Google-powered services are a boon. Solid traffic reporting. Useful elevation readings.
  • Cons: Bundled data subscription expires after two years. Displays ads. Still requires extra-cost map updates like any other GPS. Connected services not integrated with main POI database. On-board EDGE radio caused GSM buzz in our car stereo.

But then, it does come with a year’s free SIM card-powered nüLink services including traffic and safety camera warnings, Google Local Search...
