  • Excerpt:   When it comes to delivering unparalleled multi-tasking performance along with WAAS-enabled GPS navigation, the Garmin nuvi 680 does it very well. From the brilliant 4.3” touchscreen to the tons of preloaded maps, to an array of route calculation and traffic avoidance features, this nuvi 680 is definitely something to write home about. Using the clear voice prompts that include street names, your time looking at the screen is minimal.

Garmin Nüvi 680 Review

26 June 2008
  • Conclusion: The Garmin Nuvi 680 is a solid choice for a midline feature-rich GPS system. Don’t rely too heavily on the MSN Direct feature, and expect some challenges and wasted gas when redirecting after wrong turns. The MP3 player, Bluetooth and FM transmitter are all stout features that should be included in all GPS units in the future, but were thankful Garmin added them to the 680.
  • Pros: Bright and large 4.3-inch touchscreen display; lots of features; easy to use
  • Cons: MSN Direct is sub par; no multi-point navigation; poor route redirecting

Garmin Nuvi 680 Review from Sherman

Garmin Nuvi Review
20 May 2008
  • Excerpt: I take my Garmin Nuvi 680 with me on all of my business trips which include trips to California and Washington, and my Nuvi 680 has never let me down a single time! My Nuvi 680 came preloaded NavTeq City Navigator NT street maps for North America, and included a 6 MILLION POI database with hotels, restaurants, fuel stops, ATMs and more! Its super bright screen allows users to use it driving/walking in direct sunlight with no problem.

  • Conclusion: Garmin leads the other GPS manufacturers with the introduction of real-time location-based services that go beyond traffic reports.
  • Pros: Location-based services provide real-time information on traffic, weather, gas prices, and movies. Sensitive receiver. Great 4.3-inch screen.
  • Cons: Pricey. Optional packages such as Fodor's and language guides drive up the price. Not all theaters and gas stations report live data to MSN Direct.

Garmin nuvi 680 review

GPS Tracklog
6 January 2007
  • Excerpt: I’ve tried out the Garmin nuvi 680 , an update of the nuvi 660 that adds MSN Direct services (see coverage area ), which it receives via FM radio signal. MSN Direct offers weather, movie times, gas prices and traffic. This also means that the source of traffic data is different than that of the 660, which receives TMC data. The first year is free; after that, MSN Direct service is $49.95 per year or $129.95 for the lifetime of the device.

Garmin nuvi 680

9 October 2008
  • Summary: И снова компания Garmin расширила функциональность своей прежней модели, ставшей лидером на рынке GPS-продуктов, получив в результате еще более привлекательное устройство. Устройство nuvi 680, обеспечивающее информацию локальных служб, не только поможет вам добраться из точки А в точку В, но может стать неотъемлемой частью вашей жизни.
  • Pros: Локальные службы в реальном времени поставляют информацию о трафике, погоде, автозаправочных станциях и кинофильмах. Высокочувствительный приемник. Отличный 4,5-дюйм экран.
  • Cons: Высокая цена. За дополнительные пакеты, такие, как Fodor и руководства на разных языках, приходится платить отдельно. Не все кинозалы и автозаправочные станции сообщают свежие данные MSN Direct.

  • Conclusion: Il Garmin Nuvi 680 è un ottimo navigatore con tante funzionalità e con un servizio molto interessante, quello che offre informazioni locali su traffico, cinema, distributori, ecc. che per il momento sarà disponibile solo per gli Stati Uniti, poi si vedrà. Ed è proprio per questo che, nonostante tutte queste caratteristiche, il prezzo è decisamente elevato e non giustificato, anche perché, senza quel servizio c'è già il Nuvi 660T che, per il resto, presenta le stesse...
  • Pros: MSN Direct; Display
  • Cons: Prezzo
