I Don't Need No Stinkin' GPS! Wait...Garmin 1300 Review

Map updates included, four times a year, great screen size

A little hard to read on sunny days

Garmin nuvi 1300 review

 

The Garmin nüvi 1300 is a relatively low-end unit in a recently introduced nuvi series, albeit one with a 4.3” widescreen. It comes pre-loaded with maps of the entire United States with the exception of Alaska.

Wide screen version of my previous one.

 

Purchased smaller one earlier and liked it. My son needed a dependable and easy to use GPS. So, I gave him that one and purchased this one. The wide screen version seems to have slightly larger lettering and is easier to read for someone of my age. Has...
