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

  • 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.

GREAT PRODUCT

  • 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.

Not perfect but good

Richard S., Newegg

  • Summary: If i had more money I would probably invest in an in dash navigation system.
  • Pros: The amount of time it takes to calculate a route is fairly short. It will also let you know ahead of time any traffic delays that are on the route.
  • Cons: Sometimes it creates a route that doesnt seem direct and it usualy always avoids routes that go on a toll road.

A fantastic value for the money!

euphonium750, Ebay
13 July 2011
  • 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. Display so far is a bit dim in bright sun light and it is a little slower than previous units like 265 205 or 255, but the traffic seems much more timely and useful than the older MSN or FM receiver versions.

Great GPS!

livvysmom83, Ebay

  • 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. Otherwise, excellent gps for the price, love the google feature!

Good product!

  • 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! The only con is that it freezes occasionally and won't pick up satellite where you currently are, and others reviews say that this is just what occurs with this model! overall though i am pleased!

nuLink is the difference maker...

Jason E. Smith "Impatient Reader", Amazon
12 November 2010
  • 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. Enter the 1690 -- Garmin's first real attempt at a "connected" GPS with Internet access. It promises to solve the out-of-date issue with the addition of google search. How well does this new model work?

Garmin Nuvi 1690 GPS

gamelrj3s4w, Ebay
8 October 2010
  • 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. That process through Magellan was too expensive to consider, given that a variety of new GPS units could be purchased for just a little more than the cost of an upgrading through Magellan. I have had my Garmin for a couple of months and I like it very much.
