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

 

I know it is stereotypical, but it is true. I was being stubborn, I don't need a GPS, I know where I am going, I know directions, I do not get lost, as I drive around the same block ten times! However, Mrs. Duckling being wise, purchases a Garmin nuvi ...

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.

As with the entire nuvi series, I expect that most buyers will be quite happy with the 1300. If 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 to consider...

Excellent

 

Cuould not get a better GPS for the money. I had a Garmin before but not with the lifetime map updates. If anyone out there has had to update their maps, you know the update will cost you as much as a GPS Don't miss out on a great deal call and get one...

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...

Stripped without warning

 

Would not have purchased this unit had I known what Garmin had stripped out... I give it a second star for it's "lifetime map updates" - but even that seems flawed as it keeps directing me to dirt roads, which I'm pretty sure I instructed it not to.

Gives you voice directions, lifetime map updates
