It works as advertised, but is missing a lot of features found in other GPS models for a lot less cash. A traffic receiver is available from Garmin for a $118, however check out other Garmin models which have this receiver included. A speed limit sign is not available in this model, but can be found on the 1350, $50 more than this one. A USB cable which is inexpensive to buy, should have been included.
Bluetooth is another recommended feature. In the 1300 series, you have to go up to the 1370T model to get both Bluetooth and traffic receiver included--at an additional $200 over the price of the 1300!
A more sensible solution would be to go to another Garmin model like the 265WT which includes: (1) FM traffic receiver, (2) USB cable, (3) Bluetooth compatibility, and (4) Speed limit info. The 265WT is currently on Amazon for $30 LESS than the 1300 but loaded with all these features and latest mapping software.
Yes, the nüvi 1300 works as advertised, but is just not the value GPS that you can find in other models.
Anyway, on to the review:
First of all, I have the 1300T, which is identical except it includes lifetime traffic. That being said, I have had this going on a month now and find it to be one of the best, if not THE best GPS Vehicle Nav I have come across. I have several handhelds of various names, but in sticking with the scope of this review, I will only mention my previous experience with the vehicle GPS units.
I've had just about every brand name of GPS unit in search of the "perfect" one. Up until now, the closest I came was with a Nuvi 350 when it was first released in 05, which I foolishly sold as I wasn't using it as much as I had originally thought. Back then, GPS Nav was a nicety and not nearly as "big" as it is today. Since then, I've had units from Magellan, Cobra, Finedrive (Ugh!), Whistler, TomTom, Mio(My favorite TeleAtlas based brand) and Navigon. All had their plusses and minuses but, never really hit that sweet spot. With the exception of one small detail, the 1300 FINALLY gets it.
I can't tell you how happy I am to be back to a Navtech based device. While TeleAtlas certainlny has come a long way, it's still not as accurate as Navtech. I still have two of my TeleAtlas based units(Mio and TomTom) and have done a series of comparisons between the 1300 and the others, with the 1300 being the most accurate.Read more ›
There are a few notable improvements I've found so far as compared to the Garmin 360--(1) the touch screen is much more responsive and accurate (2) there seem to be more POI (though, of course, there are still locations that are not listed) (3) there are lots of extra features like the ecoroute thing, which allows you to track your gas mileage and the cost of driving from 1 location to another.
As far as the negatives, the lack of accessories is the biggest problem. Ironically, if you want to register your product to get a 10% discount on accessories, you have to have the USB cord accessory so that their website can recognize your nuvi. This is not going to bode well for the number of people who will register their Nuvi 1300s, and I assume Garmin will come up with some solution to this in the future (i.e.--a way to register without connecting the nuvi to your computer). When I called Garmin, they promised to send me a USB cord for free, so that might be something to try.
Overall, great GPS with a few small problems.
I had seen this product in a Target and I needed a GPS to get from Milwaukee, WI to Tucson, AZ. It's very difficult to choose a GPS after reading some of the reviews here! [...]. Let me say this: the point of a GPS is to get you from Point A to Point B. If you already know how to get from Point A to Point B, then you don't need the GPS (which means don't complain when it takes you a different way than the way you would have gone). Before I made the trek from Milwaukee, WI to Tucson, AZ, I tested this out. I entered in the address from home to my wife's job, and from my wife's job to my job (because we only have one car). It found my wife's job perfectly, but it wasn't able to find the parking lot for my job. I think it's because the parking lot didn't have a street name, so it took me to the street next to my job and said "Mike's jobae will be on right" (I didn't mispell "job", it actually said "job-ae" which was hilarious").
I trusted the GPS enough to navigate me to Tucson, AZ. It's 29 hours from Milwaukee to Tucson, so I had to stop at a hotel in between. I choose to stop at a Days Inn in Pratt, KS, which was approx 14 hours away. The GPS unit got us there just fine. We didn't have any problems. It told us when to take exits, and where to go.Read more ›

A very good and smart device for directions. For any place out of my area it can find its way around better than me. I think it might even be smarter for directions than a dog. Read morePublished 5 months ago by Mark Sanguinetti
