Wrong mount

Amazon Customer, Amazon
28 July 2015
  • Summary: I hope the GPS works as advertised, but I can't use my new 2639lmt until I get the right mount. I have read the direction in the accompanying literature and the online manual, but the mount that was included is absolutely the wrong one and will not work on this device. I find that to be outrageous.

Disappointing and does not work properly.

N.S., Amazon
16 June 2015
  • Summary: Bought this Garmin with lifetime traffic as a replacement for an older 52 model I had. For the price I paid, I was expecting a solid unit that worked and I was disappointed. The unit completely froze on me while I was driving in a new city.

Don't wast your money on Garmin 65LM or 2639LMT.

keith, Amazon

  • Summary: I never had a automotive GPS ever until a month ago when I got a Garmin 65LM and returned it and got the supposedly better 2639LMT which I returned as well. In short don't waste your money on either of these products. I have several of the same problems with both. 1.

I thought I would try Garmin again, my mistake

R Bigelow, Amazon
22 September 2010
  • Summary: If I could give it no stars, I would. I own a Nuvi 660 that I really like. I have had no problems with it at all. Last Christmas I bought a Nuvi 1490, thinking I would pass the 660 on to another family member. It froze up on me the first day I used it and it wouldn't sync to my phone.

Failed during my first outing

P. Wallace, Amazon
15 April 2010
  • Summary: I had a difficult time getting the GPS to work initially. I called Garmin, and the tech eventually determined that it was used previously, so the normal new system setup would not work.

Getting lost in Death Valley - thanks to Garmin

Michael Melton, Amazon
12 April 2010
  • Summary: I decided to purchase the Nuvi 1690 before a big family road trip to Death Valley from Washington state. I was upgrading from a TomTom 130, and I wanted to have a more modern GPS with the Google search. Let's just say that I should have stuck with the TomTom.

Lost detailed map info

Samuel Henson "Sam", Amazon
11 January 2010
  • Summary: We purchased in mid December and during a recent trip the detailed map information stopped being displayed. In addition, we can no longer get directions to an address since the map info is gone. When you go to the info screen and look up what detailed map is loaded, nothing is displayed.

Poor quality & and horrible accuracy

Ray J, Amazon
9 November 2009
  • Summary: I've had this unit for a week. While driving the NE corridor approaching NYC, I noticed some inaccurate info: the screen will say to stay in the right lane to continue on I-95N, while the voice prompts will say to stay in the left lane.
