Turns out, I saved over $25 by waiting. :)
Thought someone might like this info.
I decided to get this Nuvi unit up and running again for my second road trip last month. I updated the Garmin app on my Mac, and connected the GPS unit. BTW, both my Mac mini and my MacBook Air seem to be finicky and slow to establish the connection with the Nuvi, but eventually it works. After getting the Nuvi connected and recognized, the app told me that the maps on the unit were up to date, but something was wrong because it wasn't working, and giving me the "no map information" message. I was happy to see that the app had an option to re-load the maps. I selected that. It took awhile - and the app gives plenty of warning that it can take an hour or more - but when it was completed, my Nuvi once again worked just fine.
My smartphone's GPS is usually enough to help me navigate around town, but I'm glad to have this Nuvi device for road trips. I know there are newer Nuvi models with bigger screens and more features, but this one is all I need for now.
Background: I'm a long-time Garmin user of the eTrex series, so when I decided this summer to buy a road GPS, I went with the devil I already knew -- Garmin -- not because I love their products so much as I at least know what to expect from them. I like the eTrex series, but this road GPS, the nuvi 1350LMT, has so many shortcomings it's hard not to hate the thing. Let's get started....
WHAT I LIKE:
- Great screen display, both size and brightness. I had thought about getting a 5" screen display offered by a newer nuvi model, but it turns out that this 4.3" display is perfectly fine as a road GPS. No quibbles here.
- Good voice instruction. I like the voice announcement of the upcoming turns, and haven't had much issue with instructions given too late to use.
- Easy registration and map updates. Unlike the eTrex series, where you have to buy road maps separately and go through a HORRIBLE process for unlocking and associating maps to a specific eTrex device, getting map updates was amazingly simple. Go to the myGarmin web portal, allow a Garmin add-in program to install on your browser, then let Garmin recognize your GPS and initiate both firmware updates and map updates with ease.
- Lane assist. Great feature, mostly reliable, but not perfectly reliable. Sometimes it's confusing when it says to bear right when what I really needed to do is to drive straight ahead, and not veer to the lanes exiting both to the right and to the left.
WHAT I DISLIKE:
- Speed limit displays. The idea is great: show the speed limit on the road you're driving, so if there's no roadside signage that tells you the speed limit, your Garmin GPS will show the info you need to avoid a speeding ticket. Problem is, the information is so unreliable as to make it utterly useless. Countless times the speed limit displayed on my Garmin was different than what the actual speed limit was on the road I was driving -- both interstate and city roads. It's a great idea but in practice, it's useless.
- Traffic warnings. On the way home from Orlando, I drove the Florida Turnpike. This Garmin GPS warned of a 2-hour delay on the drive back home. I called 511, Florida's statewide traffic service, and there was no such confirmation of a delay. We pressed on ahead, and weren't delayed at all, not even for a minute. I've had other warnings of delays that weren't, and I've had delays that I wasn't warned about, too. Great idea, but useless in practice.
- The voice announcements are stupid at times. Both nuvi 1350s I've used couldn't reliable say the word "twenty" -- it comes out, "winzy", so 27 comes out "winzy seven". Sometimes a business route is called "branch" so US 51 BR is "U.S. 51 Branch". At other times, it correctly says "business route."
- The mapping information is still missing some roads in the city I was visiting in Illinois that have been around now for 10 years or so.
WHAT I **HATE**
- The touchscreen is awful, just awful. If you're used to Ipod or Itouch or Iphone-like sensitivity, where you can use the soft end of your finger -- not your fingernail -- to navigate on this nuvi, you'll be sorely disappointed. The touchscreen performance is terrible (and, yes, I did do a screen calibration on both nuvi 1350s I had). It's frustrating and maddening to use this nuvi's screen, the worst feature of the whole device. Since the lousy performance occurred on both nuvi 1350s I've used, I think the issue is just the model's design, not the specific unit I was using.
- I also hate that in the mountains and downtown driving in large cities, the nuvi just can't figure out where I really am. In the mountains, it thinks I'm driving off-road rather than doing switchbacks, and in large downtowns (I was in St. Louis), the nuvi thought I was driving a block away. My eTrex devices didn't exhibit this kind of bad behavior, which is very frustrating.
Conclusion: This is an okay device with lots of promises, but doesn't do a good job at fulfilling them. The map data is a big part of the problem, where out-of-date speed limits and missing roads are the issue. The traffic update service is too unreliable to be useful. And Garmin's hardware design makes using the touchscreen a miserable experience. If I was convinced that there was another GPS with the same features and price was available elsewhere, I'd try that option rather than going with this nuvi model. NOT recommended.
