Not impressed

Brett H., Newegg
23 January 2014
  • Summary: First- The voice navigation doesn't work half the time. I will say the street names loud and clearly and it will give me something totally different. This is the main reason I bought this model.
  • Pros: Easy to set up and update. Looks nice and the 3d features are good. Traffic is ok, when it actually works and is up to date.
  • Cons: Several glaring issues that I have had over the past few years that I thought updates would fix:

Too many glitches

DmKa, Amazon

  • Summary: Excellent display and lots of useful features. Several major issues. Frequent navigation errors - the unit often chooses a clearly suboptimal route, especially in urban areas. Trouble finding satellites on mountain roads - a lot more trouble than my old Garmin had. Delayed display updates after turns - if there are two turns in close proximity, the display will often show me making the first one when in fact I am already past it and trying to figure out where to go next.

  • Summary: I was so excited to get this so I could use the Bluetooth option! First thing I did was paired it to my iphone! It blew my iphone speakers out so I couldn't use anything on my phone that used the speakers! If you have an iPhone I would not purchase this Garmin! Cost me $250 to replace my iphone from The apple store. I'm sure Garmin won't do anything about it but I'm going to try! Took it back to walmart the next day!

  • Summary: When I try to enter my house on the GPS, it can't find my house. One time the exit to the highway was on the right, as was also clearly indicated on the the GPS screen. However, as I approached the exit (off-ramp), the voice kept telling me that the exit was on the left. And almost all the time say the wrong side to arrive on the right side - for destination on left side. Did you know Walmart.com return policy on GPS is only 15 days?

"Folks, be advised that I've seen many negative reviews."

john19000, CNET
26 July 2012
  • Pros: The unit will not say "recalculating" so you will not know if you took a wrong turn...a major flaw.
  • Cons: When you put in an address, it will ask you for the city first and make you go through a lone list of cities and then it will ask you for the state. Sort of backwards, just creating more work and making it harder. Many other problems exits.

Garmin GPS dissappointment - Don't spend your money on this!

R. Burdiez "RB", Amazon
19 February 2012
  • Summary: I used to own a Magellan 860 which I loved - it gave me turn by turn directions, lane assist and the option of chosing routes. This GPS - does not provide turn by turn, I cannot chose routes - many times it has taken me the long way around, for lane assist it is not always specific. My experience has not been good thus far - I have lost confidence in this device mainly because I have passed my destination numerous times.

Nuvi 3490 - few features

Lewis Clanton "rlewiscl", Amazon
3 February 2012
  • Summary: I have had a Nuvi 1690 for a couple of years. My daughter was going away to college so I gave it to her and purchased a new 3490 for myself. What a disappointment. Most of the features that I enjoyed on my 1690 don't exist on the 3490. The 3490 has no NuLink connected services (ie, Fuel Prices, Google Search, White Pages, Flight Status, etc.) The display is better but that was not worth what was lost.
