We were looking for a replacement for our old but trusty Garmin i3 sat nav. Senior Management loves the Garmin logic and detests my Tom Tom 720 as being too temperamental (some software upgrades from TomTom have been "bug" ridden), complex and bulky. This nuvi 1200 series is thinner than the previous models and is very simple to operate. Map seems OK, but can be confused - e.g. did not recognise the lane of my brothers farm, which has been in existence for a century!
Bright, clear screen - easy to read
Small, slim & light - slips into pocket
Voice directions are loud and clear
Free 30 day subscription of speed cameras.
Can be used in "pedestrian" mode for walking around a town.
Not sure whether it's possible to tell this Garmin not to route along a certain road; i.e. if the M1 is blocked, is there a facility to pre-plan a reroute?
This is a "basic" sat nav (no bluetooth or FM transmitter or mp3 player or traffic alerts) which has the advantage of a European map and it is recommended for those who like simple things in life! It's a nice bit of kit.
