Garmin Nuvi 1690 Sat Nav

essjaydee, REVIEW STREAM
4 weeks ago
  • Excerpt: I bought this to replace my older Garmin Nuvi Sat Nav after it developed a fault. My reasons for choosing this one were mainly due to the live updates for cameras and traffic avoidance and the Google search facility which allows you to search for a person or company and navigate to the address.

Nice Unit with NuLink Service at an Affordable Price

csexton1958, Ebay
29 March 2012
  • Summary: I have owned several Garmin GPS Units and the Nuvi 1690 is a good unit if you are willing to pay the annual cost for the NuLink service after the expiration of the two year service that is included with the unit. NuLink is comparable to the now defunct MSN Direct service previously offered, except that NuLink includes Google Local Search.

garmin 1690

Hornyburg, Amazon
22 February 2012
  • Summary: As an in home estimater this GPS is the BOMB. I have to arrive at my appointments without having been there before. This model gives me a few ways to enter in a destination which is awsome for what I do since typo's happen on my lead info on occasion. If the address is incorrect I can Enter in their phone#, or even their name. Very few other models have these features and they are expensive. I love the ability to search keywords as well. I.E.

Best GPS Out There, Even in 2012

Robert N., Newegg
21 January 2012
  • Pros: The 1690 has Garmin's best Traffic reception; Satellite traffic gets reception anywhere and has far fewer banner ads than the FM system; unit has been very dependable; intuitive operation; generally good routing; good bluetooth speakerphone for rental car travel
  • Cons: Routing sometimes requires a reality check, lacks voice recognition, lacks lifetime maps unless you buy them separately (be sure to update when you first receive the unit.)

Best ever

Steven Sheeley, Amazon

  • Summary: I absolutely love this GPS. I live in Seattle and the traffic around here can be murderous. I purchased this model to get the real time traffic updates and let me tell you, it was well worth it. It has saved me countless hours of heartache of being stuck in traffic and has gotten me to work on time ever since I got it. I love it!!!!! Service from the company was prompt and courteous.

"Gamin 3790LMT - OK unit with a very readable display."

RAB002, CNET
7 November 2011
  • Pros: The Screen is very readable even in bright daylight. Voice directions are loud and easy to understand. You can get rid of the anoying popup ads without turning off the traffic reports by simply connecting your unit to your computer via USB and deleting
  • Cons: I bought the most expensive unit Garmin makes (3790LMT)and had to return the first one I was shipped because it would tell me to drive through lakes. It apparently thought I was driving a boat! The second one I received is better but has issues. (See belo

GREAT PRODUCT

geneskoiland, Ebay
2 October 2011
  • Summary: This is a great product that has many nice features like the nu-link that provides up to the minute gas prices, traffic, weather and other info. The problem with the unit is that the USB port did not properly sop that I could update the map and register the product. I therefore got a new 1690 to replace this one.

"Advertising SUX"

6917628, CNET
23 September 2011
  • Pros: What the hell was the marketing and product manager thinking?
  • Cons: Why would I pay a premium to have my routing, and UI flooded with advertising? This thing was returned the minute after I turned it on and configured it.

Not perfect but good

Richard S., Newegg
21 September 2011
  • Pros: The amount of time it takes to calculate a route is fairly short.
  • Cons: Sometimes it creates a route that doesnt seem direct and it usualy always avoids routes that go on a toll road.
