Top Customer Reviews
I've read some negative reviews about the nuvi 1340, but decided to take the plunge and so far - five days in - I haven't been disappointed.
It is very easy to use. The screen is big and clear, the instructions concise and easy to understand. It updates and recalculates routes, when I have purposefully gone the wrong way, very quickly. There are other useful functions on there, like the points of interest, and the 'where am i' function would be very useful in an emergency. Safety camera alerts are a Godsend.
I appreciate that different people have different expectations, but I'm quite demanding and wouldn't waste my money on a pile of tosh, so I can recommend this sat nav.
I've had it for about five months now and still think that it is fantastic. It has got me around the UK and Europe with no problems at all. It was great for finding a petrol station in the middle of France when I needed one on the hurry up, for finding a cashpoint when driving around rural England and for finding a Thai restaurant in Bournemouth when we decided what we wanted to eat on a whim. Ten minutes and we were there.
What's more, all that driving and no points on my licence thanks to the camera alerts.
This sat nav is a very, very useful piece of kit.
was how quickly it re-routes you should you need to take a diversion. I have borrowed
an older model Gamin from a friend from time to time but this cerainly does the trick.
AGAINT:- The only small complaint, even though it has a reasonable sized screen, is
that the qwerty touch screen can be a little fiddly to hit the right letter / key at times.
This could be made better if a stylus was included, the top of a pen did the trick for me.
OVERALL:- I still give it a 5***** rating
When I was doing in-store research, ahead of buying from Amazon, the inference was that you could just go on line and download the latest maps, nobody said it would almost cost the price of the Garmin to do so, and it appears that none of the online reviews I read had this information either, so feel it's important to put it out there so that people don't fall for it blindly.
Since writing the original review have had much more use of the unit and think since doing a software upgrade via Garmin Loader it seems a lot better and doesnt seem to switch off so often, still does it ocassionally but have learnt to live with it and guess its the unit. Still think its a great sat nav, has quick re routing (if you take the wrong turn etc)and the traffic is good too. Tried the pedestrian mode a couple of times in Nottingham and London but need time to get used to it but it seems to work okay, the spoken route is really useful and the motorway junction icon (comes on in top left of screen as you near the junction from about 1 mile) and it is only an 1 inch icon not the whole screen.
The "Where am l" is really useful especially if you need your GPS location or the nearest garage, hospital or police station also has a number of other good features too. A really must have sat nav, changed to 4 stars

Really good machine when used on major roads. However, I have been lead up some goat tracks when using it on the continent or in the more remote parts of the UK.Published 5 months ago by Amazon Customer
Bought this product a while back and have found it brilliant, the only draw back is the cost to update the maps.Published 16 months ago by Amazon Customer
