New review for 2010 after 20 months of use

Larry McK, Amazon
15 April 2008
  • Summary: Feb 2010. My Garmin 680 stopped working. The touch screen no longer works. Doing a hard reset does not work. Called customer support, i was told to buy a new map. Now myself, if i have something that is not working, why would i pay for a new map. The old map would work if the touch screen was responding. So as far as i'm concerned, 20 months usage for $400 is not worth it. And in this day and age, to have bad customer support is beyond my understanding.

Save Your Money, Do Not Buy This Product

M. Murphy, Amazon
8 March 2008
  • Summary: My advice is to save your money and not buy the 680. The MSN feature is worthless and unreliable. I live in Minneapolis (where there's supposedly a strong signal) and yet the MSN system has gone "inactive" seven times in the six months I've owned the 680. Each time means a long wait while MSN re-sends the signal, and the inconvenience of not having the feature work.

16 January 2008
  • Summary: Missing Turn direction and late Navigation prompts are fatal flaws in an otherwise awesome product. I will NOT recommend any Garmin GPS until they fix these problems.
  • Pros: Good interface. Stable functionality. Lots of features Traffic data is awesome!
  • Cons: Missing the very basic navigation guidance features. Poor traffic reception Mount keeps falling off.

not what I expected

Luke, Amazon
27 November 2007
  • Summary: After purchasing this unit I took several trips trying to use the GPS to guide me. I will never buy another Garmin unit. For most of my trips, I wouldn't have been able to get there using only my Nuvi. There were several streets that the Nuvi couldn't find, streets that were there for decades. For example it was a nightmare trying to guess the Garmin abreviation for County Trunk V. I tried Cty V, Cty Trk V, V, etc.

The MSN Traffic is a disaster

Kraig Marton, Amazon
19 August 2007
  • Summary: You could not pay me enough to go through what I have with my Nuvi 680. I mainly bought it to help with work commute. The advertised idea of instant traffic reports was highly appealing to me as the commute can be a problem. I paid a lot more for this unit solely because of that capability through MSN direct. I have now had the unit four months and the traffic report has only worked for maybe 10 days. Even when it worked, it was unacceptably slow.
