It was very accurate when I used it to navigate from my home in Wiltshire, through France and Belgium to a destination in Germany. The traffic reports were very accurate and it truly saved the day when we entered a massive traffic jam on the Ring Road just north of Brussels. Immediately, the traffic indicator turned to red and the display provided me with alternative routes to avoid the jam caused by an overturned butcher's lorry! Well done!
The screen refreshes very rapidly thus avoiding any delays in latest display and the navigation through the menu is relatively simple.
However, there are some things that I must mention and which really do require attention:
1. Indicating where you have been and travelling to is fine but details of the route name/number one is on is not indicated unless the screen display is changed in which case the movement indicator stops at the point where the car moves out of the screen. Similarly, it would be nice to have essential services, e.g., petrol stations, car main dealers offering repairs, A&E, etc indicated on the map simultaneously as one drives along.
2. The pronunciation of many place and street names can be very bad and in Germany I actually found it misleading. Typically, "Ruislip" in west London is pronounced as "Rooosleep" while the German "Hauptstrasse" is pronounced as "Hepstress". In the case of the foreign names, it is probably better to ignore the voice and look at the screen where the name is actually spelt out or else you wil be left pondering while the car moves along! Dangerous!
3. I would like to hear a louder gong signal when approcahing a speed camera: it is very feint.
Overll though, I am well pleased with my purchase and would buy it again if I had need to replace it for any reason.
The satnav is generally one that befits a top-of-the-range device. The nuLink services appear really good, the most useful I've found is the ability to search for points of interest - the device obviously hits google via the web, meaning that you essentially have a free-form search rather than having to choose from a list. Very functional.
Another plus is that the device will do a petrol check, based on your current location. Not only do you get to know where all the local stations are, but the device also tells you the price of petrol at each. From experience this isn't realtime, gets updated a couple of times a week, but quite useful nevertheless.
More ambiguous is exactly what you get with "one year of free Garmin nuLink services". These services include, for example, a safety camera subscription. When I log in to the Garmin site, I see that I have the subscription, with the correct expiry date, and indeed I can access the data files and upload them to the device. However the device itself says I am not subscribed to this service. So I don't know whether there are two services here, or what. (I have contacted Garmin Support to clarify this but four weeks later am still awaiting a response - another minus.)
In addition there are pay services such as the weather - you get local weather for free (i.e. included in the basic service) - great, certainly beats looking out of the window! - but if you want the ability to check the weather anywhere, you need to pay a monthly subscription.Read more ›
3 stars, (originally 1), and that's because of faulty software in the 1695 that didn't allow me to link up with the Garmin web site for updates and downloads etc. Oh and a very slow technical support response from Garmin.
Summary of review so far.
I chose the Garmin 1695 over the Tom Tom 1000 due to poor user reports on the 1000 software and customer support although 99% of professional reviews give both units at least 4 our of 5 stars.
Mine had faulty software out of the box and wouldn't hook up correctly with the Garmin web updater software so it was sent back the same day. It took a week for the unit to be returned, at least it seems to be working. Garmin have given me an extra years subscription to NuLink for the hassle, (yet to show up on my on line account).
The 'nuLink' subscription starts running when you switch on, (a live link that gives traffic reports, Google search,etc). As the unit was faulty I'd asked for the 'nuLink' activation date to be changed to the receipt of the repaired unit. Finally one week on & several emails this has been done.
The Garmin web site with 'myDashboard' (for updates), seems to be a work in progress as I've encountered various problems, nothing major just a hassle. Still I gather Tom Tom's site has similar issues.
Amazon advertised the unit as having White Pages, Weather radar, and Over the air speed cameras included in the subscripion, they were not. Several weeks battling between Amazon and Garmin and threatening legal action I finally received a settlement from Amazon so eventually all good there.
OK one week on since repair, still problems with customer service but isn't this the case with almost all big corporations.Read more ›
