Like it very much
I bought this knowing it has been previously used but when they said it was in very good condition and that it might come with completely everything..i was a bit nervous. When it arrived, i was greatful to see the item looked brand new and came with everything it would have if it were new. I am extremely happy with this product as well as the description it had from amazon. Thank u!
Lifetime traffic is still supported
The only model in Garmin's nuvi lineup that offers road map coverage for Europe is the nuvi 2475LT. The feature list is extremely similar to the nuvi 2455LMT, but leaves out the lifetime map updates. Lifetime traffic is still supported, but covers North America only. Otherwise, the nuvi 2475LT adds a Bluetooth receiver with Smartphone Link, which allows your Android smartphone to become an interface extension of the GPS unit.
Convenient and easy to use package
The Garmin Edge 800 combines a cycling training computer, mapping and GPS navigation into a convenient and easy to use package. The amount of data which can be collected, stored and analyzed would satisfy most who use a bicycle for recreation and exercise. It provides a wide range of tools for training as well as turn-by-turn navigation when required. For the enthusiasts Garmin's Edge 800 comes in an excellent value bundled pack with a heart-rate meter and speed/cadence sensor.
Bright touchscreen display
This is a review of the Garmin Edge 800 GPS cyclecomputer based on 340 miles of riding. So far, I'm impressed with the unit's bright touchscreen display and its very wide range of functions and capabilities. The Edge 800 includes features not seen on previous Garmins, or any other brand of bike computer.
Well designed and logical navigation system
After using the Edge 800 everyday it has become something we are now nearly totally dependent on. Going into London, we will always stick the exact address into it just before we leave, so we can cycle straight to the door. For this kind of cycling, the Garmin is great.
Touchscreen is both easy and fun to use
Overall, the Edge 800 is the best bike-specic GPS unit we've used. It had us hooked on using it every ride. It's robust, with logical menus, and its touchscreen is both easy and fun to use. The screen didn't scratch despite lots of prodding with muddy fingers, and it's waterproof. It supplies all the data we knew we wanted, and some we didn't, but you never feel bogged down in info.
Raft of extra features
This sleek carbon fibre unit is a larger version of the earlier Edge 500 but with a raft of extra features. Designed as the definitive cycling computer and including full sat-nav, it can cater for all sorts of riders whether you're a commuter, cycle courier, mountain biker or racer, this is the do-it-all gadget for you.
An amazing Nav Aid for the price
I bought this used on Amazon and I can see no difference between it and the new ones. I did notice in turbulance I must have hit something on the screen that locked it up. I tried to shut it off and couldn't and finally had to remove it from the panel and remove the battery pack for a few minutes. I reassembled, reinstalled and it's worked fine since then. Must have been "cockpit error", but I still wonder what caused it and glad I was VFR at the time.
Very slim enclosure
Garmin's nuvi 1690 is a mid-range GPS receiver for use in a vehicle, and it builds on previous nuvi models mainly through the inclusion of Garmin's nuLink! service, a live-updating service that provides local information and allows Google Local searches, as well as providing helpful information like the nearest fuel prices.
Undercuts TomTom considerably on price
We've waited a long time for another manufacturer to put up some competition for TomTom's LIVE, and finally Garmin has met the challenge and even upped the ante somewhat. It's a shame that the traffic provision is not as powerful as TomTom's HD Traffic, but otherwise the nuvi 1690 meets every TomTom LIVE feature with aplomb, and adds a few very useful extras on the top. Garmin also undercuts TomTom considerably on price.
high sensitivity receiver
The widescreen visibility and lane assist technology do help make the Garmin Nuvi 1690 a worthwhile purchase for anyone new to GPS navigators. Free data subscription to NuLink services will mean that even if they are seldom used, no additional charges will be incurred. Deciding whether the increased price range is worth the list of additional features should be the determining factor when looking at buying.
Optional cityXplorer software for public transit listings and ecoRoute
The Garmin nuvi 1450 is an automotive GPS receiver with 5 inch touchscreen display and 480 x 272 resolution. This is the same screen found in the nuvi 1490T, although it doesnâ??t have bluetooth or live traffic updates like that model.
Slightly larger than average unit
For an in car navigation system to be helpful three key features are required. Firstly, an easy to use interface to quickly provide route determination. Second, a reliable screen to view information at a glance and thirdly, a reliable connection to ensure information is updated. The Nuvi 1450 manages to pull all of these features together and is a worthy choice for in car navigation, with some features that also assist when not driving.
8 hour long battery life
If you've been looking for a single GPS solution for the car, hiking, bicycle, and possibly boat, the nuvi 500 is the best option to date. The nuvi 500 has a suggested retail price of $499, and will be available for purchase in Q3 2008. A scooter mount is also available as an optional accessory.
Short battery life, need to use plug-in power which makes unclipping slightly trickier
The aera 500 is the entry-level model in Garmin's higher-end aera line of GPS receivers for pilots and drivers. The touch-screen device offers navigation modes for both flight and automotive vehicles. The aera 500 features a 4.3" widescreen display, and is preloaded with road and topographical maps and databases of private airports and points of interest.
The ball-and-socket joint on the windshield mount makes it easy to adjust the nuvi's viewing angle with one hand, and without having to turn any knobs or slip any levers.
Equipped with free lifetime traffic, lane assist with junction view, Bluetooth, text-to-speech (it speaks actual street names), and a 4.3-inch widescreen display, the nuvi 1390T offers many of the same features found on Garmin's other nuvi models, including the higher-end 7x5 models
Clear voice instructions
Simple but effective maps, clear voice instructions, fantastic lane guidance and a speedy GPS receiver make for an excellent navigational experience on the whole. The Garmin Nuvi 1390T may not be as flashy as some competitors, but it more than makes up for the lack of bling.
No-hassle, free lifetime traffic detection and avoidance.
The Garmin Nuvi 1390T ($380 - $399) is part of a new generation of Garmins that is 25 percent slimmer than previous models, and bundles a number of innovative features, including pedestrian-friendly directions. The Nuvi 1390T also includes lifetime, real-time traffic detection and avoidance with no monthly fee.
8 hour long battery life
Equally at home on or off the beaten path, Garmin's nuvi 500 is easily switched between driving, bicycling, walking, and, if optional marine maps are installed, boating mode. The water-proof (IPX7) nuvi 500 can be fully submerged in water for up to 30 minutes, has a removable, rechargeable lithium-ion battery that provides up to 8 hours of power, and comes with City Navigator NT + Topo maps of the lower 48 States pre-installed.
powerful, sharp-looking, and compact device
The Garmin Edge 500 is a strong new addition to Garmin's cyclecomputer line. It looks great, with white and blue trim, and a clean, no-wires installation. It has a highly customizable, multi-mode display, accommodates an optional heart rate monitor and cadence/speed sensor, and is compatible with third-party power meters. Its sturdy, waterproof construction, and tough new handlebar/stem mount make it suitable for road or mountain biking and easily transferable between bikes.
Seamless integration with desktop and online utilities
The 500 is still a decent buy, especially given that itâ??s half the price of the 705, with nearly all of the functionality. The 500â??s mounting system can fit any size and shape of bar or stem, and the compact design doesnâ??t clutter up the cockpit like other GPS units. With reconfigured buttons, it would be tough to beat.
