Piece of crap,
This review is from: Garmin nuvi 1300 4.3-Inch Widescreen Portable GPS Navigator (Discontinued by Manufacturer) (Electronics)
I used to have the Garmin 260W. Was fairly happy with the performance. So when I saw this Nuvi with a traffic receiver, I thought it might be a good deal.
This piece has so many issues:
a) Sometimes switches off randomly (even when connected to the power outlet). Sometimes doesn't switch on either.
b) The touch screen is moody. Doesn't become active sometimes. I have to wait for a while and try again to go through the menu
c) And finally, the directions are so so wrong! It sends me to places where there is nothing. I mean nothing. It says we have arrived and I am thinking where the hell I am. It has happened many times. When I first experienced this problem, I called up Garmin and they updated my maps. Didn't make any difference.
I am planning to return this and get a new GPS. I am not sure if Garmin even did some testing of this unit. Just too many issues!

Being your from Washington DC I understand the issue of taking you to places where there is nothing.

I just back from Frys Electronics were was playing with 1300 demo. It switched of in the middle of navigating through menu. So, yes I'll confirm your review. I almost bought it and changed my mind after that.
