Garmin Nüvi 1350 (Review)

 

Throughout the years, Garmin has continually been a leader in GPS technology. Each year the company improves its navigation systems by making them smaller and more portable, as well as increasing performance. So, when I recently received a nüvi 1350 to...

Garmin nuvi 1350 review

 

The Garmin nüvi 1350 is a mid-range unit in a relatively new line of Garmin GPS navigators, and the lowest one to offer lane assist, shown above. All of the new units in the 1200, 1300 and 1400 series come with customizable data fields and the ability...

As with the entire nuvi series, I expect that most buyers will be quite happy with the 1350. If lane assist, the ability to customize the map display, or use of CityXplorer maps is important to you, I highly recommend this unit. Otherwise, you may wish...

Too many back roads!

 

When I know where I am going, I usually select faster time thinking that it will keep on a freeway. Nope! No difference between shorter or faster. So off on country roads it goes. I know a freeway entrance is 5 miles down the road and it tries to make...

Fast to load, accurate address locator

I "upgraded" from a Magellan. The Magellan had the feature that immediately prompted you for most use or less use of freeways. The Garmin has faster time or shorter distance

Nice GPS unit - I own 4 of them

 

I bought 3 of these for my kids' cars. All have worked flawlessly. No problems with overheating as mentioned in previous review. The touchscreen in my 3yr old Garmin unit went so I just bought another of the 1350's so now I have 4 and am very happy...

Good price for a pretty full featured unit. Screen size of 4.3 inches is plenty big and nice and bright. Turn lane feature is something I didn't have on my older Garmin. Shows the layout of the upcoming intersection so you're sure to get in the correct

No output jack for audio. Can't plug into vehicle's MP3 port. Have to rely on internal speaker

Other negatives: - Their search and points-of-interest references are woefully out of date. For example, when searching for fuel stations it listed numerous locations that have been CLOSED FOR OVER A DECADE. I also found their business search database...

Updating the unit's maps is a hassle. First, you need to buy a USB-miniUSB cable specifically for data. To get the current maps and device software you must download a proprietary Garmin Communicator Plugin to your computer. The plugin is problematic on

A Do Not Buy

 

Unit overheats while attached the windshield. Unit stops operating after three hours on the dashboard. After intalling a recommend program update, replacement of a new power cord and then a new unit, six months after Christmas I do not have a reliable...

Clear and easy to follow directions. Good price and great the warrantee

A very good GPS system right up to the points that it shuts down until it cooled off. Garmin working with me in respect to the warrantee but I still have a unit that will shut down after 3 hours of operation
