Garmin nüvi 1390T

 

The market is flooded with personal navigation devices these days. But that doesn't mean new entrants can't stand out—particularly if they offer unprecedented value. The Garmin nüvi 1390 ($269.99 list), our latest Editors' Choice, accomplishes this...

Accurate navigation. Smooth map animation with plenty of road speed limit signs. Well-timed voice prompts. Two lane assist modes. Pedestrian routing enhanced with (optional) cityXplorer maps

Lifetime traffic comes with frequent ads, even if you turn the feature off. No 3D landmarks or multi-segment routing

Despite pesky ads that come with free lifetime traffic, the Garmin nüvi 1390 brings many high-end navigation features down to a budget price point. And it helps you drive more efficiently.

Garmin nuvi 1390LMT

 

The Garmin nüvi 1390LMT adds lifetime map updates to the nuvi 1390T (which already includes lifetime traffic). All this in a package with lane assist, junction view and Bluetooth for hands-free cell phone use. All of the units in the 1200, 1300 and...

Garmin Nuvi 1390LMT

 

The Garmin Nuvi 1390LMT navigation GPS unit has a lot of extras that you will love. We were wondering where the media player and voice recognition features were, but we really like all of the features you can get with this navigation GPS unit,...

This Garmin offers a lot of great ways to plot your course, like ecoRoute and cityXplorer

The lack of voice recognition is one weakness

This unit is compact and packed with features, but you may miss having an integrated media player.

Garmin nuvi 1390T GPS unit

 

Garmin's latest flagship GPS unit is the nuvi 1390T. It's a slim and compact GPS device that features a number of new features, including an excellent...

Slim and compact design, responsive touch screen, fast rerouting times and GPS fix, effective UI, great lane guidance, Bluetooth, New Zealand maps included

Map lacks detail compared with competitors, traffic antenna built into car-charger, no FM transmitter, Bluetooth hands-free microphone isn't great

Simple but effective maps, clear voice instructions, fantastic lane guidance and a speedy GPS receiver make for an excellent navigational experience on the whole. The Garmin nuvi 1390T may not be as flashy as some competitors, but it more than makes up...

Garmin nuvi 1390T Sat-Nav

 

James takes to the road with the Garmin nuvi 1390T sat-nav.

The Garmin nuvi 1390T’s current street price puts it on par with Mio’s Navman Spirit 500 and TomTom’s XL IQ Routes Europe 42, although the latter doesn’t include live traffic updates. Choosing between the Garmin and the Mio is tough, as they match each...
