Nice Unit with NuLink Service at an Affordable Price
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.
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.
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.
Summary: This is a great unit. I love being able to look up gas prices. it is faster and more accurate than MSN was. The google app is useful. The coolest feature is the ability to input a 10 digit phone number instead putting a complete address in, this is much faster.
Summary: Plenty of features without being too complicated. Screen is easy to view and sensitive to touch. Only complaint would be that the map for my area is not up-to-date... a new major road was constructed ~2 years ago and is not shown on the map which causes the nuvi to go haywire.
Summary: I like how large the screen is and how interactive it is with giving directions! I didn't expect to get it at the price i paid, so although happy, i didn't really need it! It was in great shape!
Summary: I was an early adopter of the nuvi 350 and have owned several models since. I've always liked Garmin and their apple-like attention to ease of use. The only thing that has consistently bothered me is the never ending out-of-date map problem.
Summary: It had the highest rating from Consumer Reports and I felt safe buying it without extensive research. I was pleased with my relatively recent Magellan Maestro, however it needed map upgrading to bring it up to date.
lane assist and multi point routing are nice, traffic info is okay

Summary: The lane assist feature is helpful, especially around the Washington DC area, where many people drive as if they are competing in a NASCAR race. Changing lanes here can be difficult and time consuming, so being warned about which lane to use is helpful, because I can start my lane change earlier,...
