i read a bunch of reviews on different models before i ultimately chose the 1390t. when it came down to the wire it was a hard choice between the 765t and the 1390t. The main difference I would like to point out is the charger. the 765t uses a mount charger, while the 1390t uses a micro usb fed directly into the unit. some users like the fact they dont have to unhook the charger when dismounting the unit(765t). like i said personal preference. oh and also no mp3 playback, fm tuner or multipoint point destination. 765t has all those.

real world test of features
user interface: so easy a caveman can do it. garmin definitely has the other brands beat when it comes to UI. i liked the feature set for price in the tomtom 940t, but the UI just looks so primitive. They need a major rehaul of that. the 1390t always gave precise directions without causing confusion. there was no lagging either. being able to update the ETA to total distance is a huge plus. almost always gave me the local speed limit. your speed turns red if you're speeding.

bluetooth: i was actually rather impressed with the bluetooth. it was easy to sync with my blackberry 8800(dinosaur phone i know). i had to speak a little louder than normal conversation. this is mostly because you're talking to the unit from 1.5 feet away. if the mic was more sensitive it would pick up more background noise. call quality was good on the other end. my friend couldn't hear the road in the background.

lane assist: i like the fact that it shows you all available lanes that you can take. it almost always did lane assist where available. junction view with photo realistic pictures never showed. i drove on the grand central, LIE, northern state, southern state, belt parkway, cross island.

Just bought this GPS from Amazon and I'm having no problems with it at all. No sure why others have a problem with the speaker but it sounds fine to me. I bought this to replace my Nuvi 350 and it's a major upgrade. The menus are much nicer and I like the Speed Limit display. I did have a little trouble with the bluetooth. After pairing my iPhone the "Phone" icon disappeared from my GPS. It didn't seem to recognize my iPhone anymore. I went to the Garmin website, downloaded the 2.70 upgraded software for this unit (which has fixes for the speaker and bluetooth), did the pairing again, and now it works fine. I would definitely recommend this unit. Anyone who's having problems should download the latest software for this GPS from the Garmin website.

I purchased this GPS recently. I had used an older Garmin for 2 weeks and I had liked it. I did not have time to do much research on this product but after reading a few reviews, I knew that Garmin is the manufacturer of choice for Aviation GPS(s). Once I knew that, I stpped researching and simply placed the order.

I had to drive from NY to FL a week after placing the order and Amazon replied with an order confirmation email stating that I will be receiveing the GPS device in about 1 month from the time I had placed the order. Panic moment, sepecially as I had specified and payed for 2-day express delivery of the product.

My travel plans were all in the air from the moment I received the Amazon order confirmation email. I quickly sent an email to Amazon Customer Service (at 2-3AM), to ensure they have the item in stock and that they'll ship ASAP. Amazon Customer Service reacted within minutes and was very very efficient in taking care of things. They even excusesed themselved for the automatic email I had received, which had the wrong date. I very much appreciate the Amazon Customer Service. In the past they have heped me just as promptly as they did with this order. Amazon is very much on top of everything!!! Efficient and fast and best! :)

I was able to use the GPS successfully from my very first attempt.
The first time I used it, I drove 1000 mi in 2 days. (It is totally fool proof! or as they call it in marketing "It's very user friendly.")
I also helped a lost trucker find his route with my GPS and I reached destination safely myself. Not one single wrong exit, Garmin GPS gives instructions well head, with sufficient time to react to the instruction at the speed you drive at.

Having used a factory installed in dash GPS system from what I consider one of thr leading systems for 3 years in my previous car, I have high expectations of a GPS system, and the 1390t lives up to almost all of them.

-Slim Design - nice when traveling and need to carry for use in a rental car
-Free traffic - accurate traffic. In my metro area (Kansas City), traffic reception is strong and has been more current than the local radio DJ. And since the traffic service is funded by ads (non obtrusive, small and only display when not moving) beats other subscription traffic services hands down. (note the color stripe indicating traffic flow only show if a problem, a green stripe will not show along side route if no traffic issues as I originally thought).
-Strong satellite reception. Quickly finds satellites when powering up
-Map view zoom level. When in 3d view the zoom level auto adjusts when moving from a major interstate (broader zoom) to city streets (zooms in automatically to show more street details)
-Junction View - very nice view. Is limited (expect to only see when routing on major interstate intersections from my experience). If this is the only deciding point not sure its worth the extra $$ however.
-Lane Assist - tends to be presented at more locations than junction view and gives an early notification which lanes you need to be in for upcoming turn or merger.
-Bluetooth handsfree support (uses the speaker in the GPS)

Cons (why not 5 stars)
-Power cored plugs directly into unit (not mount) so if removing from windshield, must also remove cored connection (or take the cord with the unit)
-location of plug on unit.
