YONG A., Newegg
12 June 2011
  • Summary: i was wondering why newegg was offering this at such a discount price, i had to call Garmin on tech issue and found that this model came out in early 2008, i found a Garmin® nüvi® 1200 GPS Navigation System for 79.99 with free shipping to a store near you.
  • Pros: small size .....
  • Cons: no real time traffic, screen is too small, does not have eco-route feature, short battery life.

Doesn't Fit

Mary G., Newegg
19 October 2010
  • Summary: How useful is a good GPS that you can't mount in a car? Somewhat useful. Since I had already activated the lifetime maps feature and downloaded the maps by the time I discovered it will not fit into the mounting unit, I didn't think it would be returnable.
  • Pros: Works great as a GPS, has lifetime map updates.
  • Cons: The mounting bracket that clips on to the GPS so that you can attach it to the dashboard of a car does not fit the unit. It is too narrow. I tried for half an hour and three other people have tried, it just is too narrow for both clips to engage the unit at the same time.

Worked OK until I had to put my fist through it!

****** P ******** Jr, Amazon
18 September 2010
  • Summary: I purchased this GPS to replace my old Garmin 340 that had for several years but just died. It's much smaller than my previous model so it takes up less room in my center console when not in use.

I was very unimpressed with this gps

H. Tannenbaum "funnybones38", Amazon
23 August 2010
  • Summary: I had this gps for only a few months, used only a few times and it already broke. the screen freezes on me and takes a few days till it will go back to working use. this is not what i expected when i was looking into garmin gps because i heard they're supposed to be top of the line. oh well.

User Review

Bill W., Newegg
22 July 2010
  • Summary: I can't send it back as it only has a 30 day guarantee so stuck with a bad unit.
  • Pros: Worked great for about 35 days and then it died. I really liked it for it's ease of use and size.
  • Cons: I shut it off. Then turned it on to show my wife how to use it and it won't come back on.

Does NOT include Lifetime Maps

Aaron King, Amazon
24 June 2010
  • Summary: We ordered this unit because it is listed as having lifetime map updates. It does not. One came with no authorization code or card, so we contacted amazon who directed us to garmin. Garmin does not bundle its products (it says) and sent us back to amazon.
