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...

Garmin nuvi 1350 GPS unit


Garmin's nuvi 1350 lacks Bluetooth connectivity and traffic support, but still provides an excellent navigational experience

Compact design, responsive touch screen, fast rerouting and GPS fix times , effective UI, New Zealand maps included, ecoRoute feature

Map lacks detail, no Bluetooth or FM transmitter, no advanced lane guidance

If you can live without traffic updates and Bluetooth hands-free, Garmin's nuvi 1350 is an excellent GPS with a competitive price tag. The lack of advanced lane guidance is a real shame, but the clear maps, good voice instructions and fast GPS chip...

Map limitation


The product works as expected, except the maps may include errors. I wanted to go from 51st ST in Chicago to 5660 south Woodlawm. It kept telling me to go north, the wrong direction. However, if located other addresses correctly.

Best one I bought yet


I have had other GPS units but this one leaves the others in the dust. I used the unit all the way from CT to FL without a hitch. Used the PPI for restaurants and gas. Very accurate. I wanted a unit that did not have bluetooth. The lane feature worked...

Stong recomend


You still have to plan a little with an actual map before you leave if you want the best route but if you get lost, the Garmin will get you where you need to go.

My job requires for me to go on service calls. While I am onsite at one buisness, I often have to go to a different client. This gps gets me where I need to go. Easy to use compaired to a TomTom. Get a Garmin

Either I can not find the option or the Garmin will not let you directly choose your route
