Pros: google idea is great, too bad they keep either freezing up screen, or when the cheap ads appear it also freezes, thats my 4th and last garmim, i will look for somethoing more reliable since i use it as a work tool. VERY DISAPOINTED
Cons: freezes up, or need to be reboot. it has so many onfigurations that looks like a bad microsoft program with erroros, its not my first with same issuesm i had 3 different models before and they either had the same issue or quit working after one year
Cons: Mapped to upper peninsula of Michigan from Mid-lower Michigan. Routed me S through Chicago and WI when if it had taken the Mackinac Bridge it would have been a straight shot. Every option was 3 1/2 hours LONGER and wasted more gas & more traffic.
Cons: The Nuvi 1690 fails to deliver on all features I bought it for: 1. Navigation: Faster Time doesn't work. 2. Bluetooth: bad quality , weak mic and no separate volume. 3. Compute speed: slower than in older models.
Pros: Extra features like real time gas prices, flight status, google searches are all great. While it worked it never gave me a bad set of directions.
Cons: I purchased the 1690 and almost 1 month later it died. It shut off and would not come back on. I assumed it was a fluke, since I have another Garmin that works great, so I exchanged it for another 1690. Again, almost 1 month later it died.
