Easy-to-Use Touchscreen Interface
One of Garmin's core beliefs is to continually enhance the simplicity of the user experience. The nüvi on-screen menus are logically arranged, with clearly labeled, colorful icons, making it easy to enter data and get to the information you need quickly.

Enter a destination on the touchscreen, and nüvi takes you there with 2-D or 3-D maps and turn-by-turn voice directions. Text to speech enhances standard sat-nav voice guidance by speaking the names of places and roads. It even announces the name of exits and streets so you never have to take your eyes off the road. In addition, nüvi 1390T accepts custom points of interest, such as school zones and safety cameras, and lets you set proximity alerts to warn you of upcoming POIs.

Know the Lane Before It's Too Late
No more guessing which lane you need to be in to make an upcoming turn.

It realistically displays road signs and junctions on your route along with arrows that indicate the proper lane for navigation.

Junction View takes it a step further, giving you a photo-realistic screen that shows you both the road detail as well as the signs as you will see them on the road.

Pedestrian Navigation
With the Public Transit feature, you can navigate using buses, tramway, metro, and suburban rail systems with optional CityXplorer content. Downloadable CityXplorer data and city guides are available for purchase and download from garmin.com for many cities.

Where Am I?
Keep track of yourself and your car with nüvi 1390T. Just tap "Where Am I?" to find the closest hospitals, police stations, fuel stations, nearest address, and intersection. Also see your exact latitude and longitude coordinates. The nüvi 1390T even remembers where you parked. It automatically marks your position when you remove it from the windshield mount, so you can navigate with nüvi on foot and find your way back to your vehicle. Perfect for unfamiliar spots and crowded lots, such as amusement parks, stadiums, and malls.

HotFix Satellite Prediction
Garmin's HotFix capability automatically calculates and stores satellite locations, greatly reducing satellite acquisition time so that you can turn the unit on and get going. With HotFix, your nüvi remembers the position of all satellites it is tracking when you turn it off, and calculates their movements in order to predict where they should be the next time you turn it on. HotFix can predict satellite positions for up to three days after the device was last turned off.

MSN Direct Compatible
Add the GDB 55 receiver for MSN Direct. With dynamic content from MSN Direct, you can avoid traffic backups when you travel with your compatible Garmin device. MSN Direct broadcasts traffic data to your GPS navigator so you can find the best route through traffic, check traffic flow, and receive accident warnings.

The GPS unit itself is OK, it would be better if it came with a full set of instructions instead of finding out you have to go on-line to get a User's Manual. The issue is the touch screen; the touch points are off of where they should be. For example, on the keyboard I have to touch in-between the letters rather than on the letters directly. There is a similar issue with the "Up" arrow in that I can touch it directly, it will change color (indicating I have touched it) but I have to move my finger around to get it to actually do something. For what you pay for, it should work a lot better than that.

On the plus side, it is nice to have some of the features of this unit; traffic updates, alternate routes, and lane information are all very handy.

This is a nice compact style GPS. I do have problems with the touch screen as you have to press really hard for it to recognize the command (I don't like that, because I feel I will ruin the display). This Garmin has great features, such as turn by turn street directions, and the ability to view highway collectors lanes, and Garmin telling you which lane to stay in. I am disappointed with the cost for not much software attached to this unit. It seems that Garmin has done more development on hardware than on software and it shows. You can't seem to add music, or files (there's no SD card slot), and this unit comes with the same generic dash holder, that doesn't work on todays modern vehicles since the plastics are different and contoured in a car. I wish accessories didn't cost that much too. The good thing about this unit, is that it comes with lifetime updates - not sure how long that will last, but means that I don't have to spend $100 every year to upgrade NA maps.

A Good System But Room For Improvement May 1 2010
By Mary Ellison - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This is my second GPS from Garmin. Both have been for automobile use. The first was a Garmin StreetPilot 2610, which I have had for about 8 years. While not completely dead yet, after roasting under 8 summer suns and freezing through 8 cold winters, it has finally started to present intermittent screen display problems. Not wanting to get caught without a working GPS, I purchased this unit. I originally was leaning toward the 1350T, but opted for the 1390T instead because the price included 4 map upgrades per year for the life of the unit, and since I tend to really get my money's worth of use from these things, the price difference for me was a great deal over spending money for each upgrade separately.

I've had the 1390T Nuvi for a little over a month now. In that time, most of my traveling about has been in my local area, with only a couple of trips out of the area. During the time I have had the 1390T, I have identified several positive and negative observations about it. These are presented in no particular order of importance.

Positive Comments:

1. After initial acquisition, satellite reacquisition is very, very fast.

2. The intersection view showing the highway signs and the proper lanes to be in is very useful when traveling on highways you are not familiar with. Just be aware that you won't see this screen unless the highway has multiple lanes that fork in different directions. This view is not displayed for standard cloverleaf exists.

3. Screen resolution on the Nuvi is great. It is bright, clean, crisp, and easily viewed in full daylight. Button functions, for the most part, are obvious and operate smoothly. Audio quality is excellent with good volume control.

4. The map can be displayed as a standard 2-D map or as a 3-D map, and you can switch between them at will. Which you use as your primary map display will depend on your preferences after experimenting with each.

5. I like the fact that the USB connector port is on the back of the unit, rather than on the mount.

While the general functioning of the Nuvi appears to be excellent, I do have a few

Negative Comments:

1. When indoors and plugged into a wall outlet with no satellite reception, the 1390T will not allow me access to its functions EVEN when the correct password is entered.

2. Documentation for my toaster oven is better than that which is available for the Nuvi. To put it plainly, the Nuvi documentation, which has to be downloaded separately from Garmin's web site, is almost worthless. I somehow made a change to the display that wasn't in the owner's manual and could not reverse that accidental change without doing a system restore to factory settings. That really pissed me off.

3. When I touch the top of the screen to display the intersection where I am to turn, the display only remains visible for between 3 and 4 seconds. That is not enough time to really be certain you have seen what you wanted to see. It should be displayed automatically when I approach the intersection and should remain visible until I press a return button of some kind, or until after I have executed the turn or the cloverleaf exit.

4. No map scale is displayed continuously. Some times it is displayed, and sometimes it isn't displayed, and when it is displayed, the font size is too small to be of much use. Since I often refer to the map scale, I would like to see it continuously displayed in a font size to make it easily recognizable.

5. When following a route, the 3-D map has a habit of zooming in on every intersection I travel through, even though no turn is indicated. I find this annoying. If I want to zoom in on those areas, I would prefer to do it manually.

6. When I go off route, this unit will recompute a new route. But - if I have moved to a road that is not on the current map, the unit will simply tell me to return to the marked route. It gives no indication of where that marked route might be or what direction I should drive in to get back to it. That's not so bad in an area I know something about, or if I am not too far off the route, but outside of my area and way off route, it could be a bit problem.

I have not tried to use the geocaching capability of this unit, so I can't comment on the internal compass or on the accuracy of the altimeter. Neither have I tried to use the bluetooth capability. I would also be remiss if I did not point out that the unit I have shut itself off once while it was calculating a new route and would not restart for 30 minutes. It may have been caused my the fact that the software was interrupted by sunrise initiated screen display change just as the computation was being initiated. The only way I could get the unit back up was to hold down the power button for about 15-20 seconds before releasing it, a solution that I could not find in the owner's manual, but it seemed to me that there had to be a reboot capability. The unit also refused on one occassion to display the roads on the map until I did a reboot. That really sucks.

While the 1390T is more attractive than my StreetPilot 2610, I think the 2610 was more stable and had functions that behaved a little bit better than the corresponding functions in this new 1390T. I like the Nuvi 1390T, but for all the reasons stated here, I can only give this unit a 3-star rating.

Buyers beware! June 16 2010
By Amazonist - Published on Amazon.com
We have been a Garmin user for over 5 years and within these 5 years we have gotten different model and loved it. Unfortunately this particular model that we bought gave us nothing but trouble. We were very excited about the new features it provides. After using it for about 3 weeks this model all of sudden froze and will not load the map. We end up returning this model and exchange for the same thing and again after 3 days this particular model will not load the map and in fact kept rebooting itself. Again we thought this perhaps is a fluke, went back and exchange for another same model. Sadly, this one yet died again and the map will not load. The merchant we purchase the item from suggest us to call Garmin and to my disappointment after sitting for half hour wait their customer service was beyond horrible, not professional and rude. Because of this experience we will not be purchasing another Garmin.

Known software problem July 1 2010

I bought 3 of these for family members. Within 2 months they all have crashed. Called Garmin, they called it an "endless reboot" and told me there is no known fix for this. Back to the store it goes!!!!

Don't buy the Nuvi 1390T June 19 2010
By Johnny B. Goode - Published on Amazon.com
I bought this Garmin 1390T after much research and noticed these few negative reviews, but noticed more positive and bought one. I loved the Nuvi during the first few weeks around town in NW Ohio and invested several hours in downloading all of the newest firmware, maps, and other other neat stuff from the Garmin site. HOWEVER, on my first extended trip (to Canada - above Minnesota) a 1,000 mile trip one way. The unit died in Wisconsin, about half way to my destination and in the middle of nowhere as far as my personal experience with the area and highways goes.

The unit froze on the map, leaving the impression you are doing fine. Luckily I noticed before my next intersection or I would have really been lost. When I repowered, it just flashed Garmin...Garmin...Garmin and never booted up. After having my daughter at home call the Garmin customer service, after 45 minutes of hold time, they acted like this is something unheard of (see the many other bad reviews here with this exact same problem). They said I should return the unit. Nice, I'm in the middle of the wilderness still 400 miles from my destination and all I need to do is ship this back to the Amazon web site! Hey Garmin ... HOW ABOUT EXCHANGING IT AT ANOTHER OF THE HUNDREDS OF YOUR RETAILERS I AM PASSING ON THE ROAD?!?

After rereading the other reviews here who encountered this problem and had the same reoccurrence with replacement units from Garmin, I am NOT exchanging this for another 1390T. AGarmin nüvi 1390/1390T 4.3-Inch Widescreen Bluetooth Portable GPS Navigator with Trafficnd I strongly recommend you do not buy one. I may buy another Garmin model, but after the customer service experience and the lack of real help while I was lost on the road (the whole reason I purchased a GPS in the first place) I am not sure.

Very good overall May 28 2010
By J. FISHER - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Overall a very good product.

Pet Peeves: My old Garmin Nuvi had a feature that provided for a "ping" sound just prior to a voice prompt coming on - that seems to be absent from the new version (unless I simply cannot find a setting to turn that on) - this was always helpful in getting your attention for a voice prompt.

Road names instead of route numbers - I still fail to understand why they continue to use road and street names instead of route numbers when giving directions (and I'm talking about state and US route numbers). It is common to have intersections and roads without the street name shown on any signs, but the state and US route numbers are always there and are always consistent. Often a state or US route number will change names several times, even within a single county, so I really don't understand why they don't just use the route numbers, or at least include the route numbers - this is probably my biggest problem with the Garmins, and it seems like such an obvious, and easily fixable, drawback (maybe other brands have this flaw as well, I don't know).
