Garmin is a good brand name, especially their wonderful after-sale support, if you need it. The product is functioning well as expected. The screen is bright and the image almost perfect. Garmin is known for the ease of use or user friendly. I did not like the bulky car charger cable. The window suction cup is easy to use but if a car ventilation hookup is included, that would be even better. Hope this helps
I had to drive a truck for work a couple of weeks ago and my boss loaned me her Garmin nuvi 1300 to get to my various delivery destinations. I had never driven with a GPS before and it was a true revelation. I never got lost, even when I had to deviate from the prescribed course because of unexpected traffic conditions. I've never had an easier time driving in unfamiliar places. I was so impressed with it, I bought one for myself.
The touch screen interface, which is very similar to a smart phone, is very intuitive and easy to use, even without reading the owner's manual. My only real complaints are the touch screen needs to be a bit more responsive and the maps take too long to load. This latter problem seems to be more pronounced in my unit than my boss's.
One should be aware that while this GPS unit will get you there, it doesn't always pick the easiest route. On one of my truck trips for work, the unit directed me through town with lots of traffic and traffic lights when I could have taken a bypass and gotten off right at my destination. Another time, it directed me to make a right turn where it was impossible because the road was divided by a grass median.
The 1300T is supposed to give real time traffic reports, but that feature doesn't seem to be working on mine.
So why would one even consider buying a dedicated GPS instead of using the GPS function in a smart phone? The answer is actually pretty simple. The Garmin's screen is brighter, more easily readable, and stays on continuously, while my Android smart phone's screen is dim under the best of circumstances and goes out after a few minutes to save power, leaving me with only audio prompts.
If you're looking at used ones, you'd do well to get one with lifetime map updates (1300LM) as a la carte map updates aren't cheap.
If you find yourself frequently driving in unfamiliar areas or you just don't have a good built-in sense of direction, the Garmin nuvi 1300 can be a welcome companion on the road.
I bought this receiver basically because I have a car without GPS built in and wanted something for trips or to find places in my area that I am not familiar with. This does the job. It has a nice screen, it is very easy to use and I bought it used at a good price, so I feel that I got my money's worth. What would make it a little better is to get one with free lifetime maps (I do have lifetime traffic though) and a better battery life (mine was used, so maybe the new ones last longer without being attached to a power source?).
Good product if you are looking for a quality GPS without spending a lot of money.
I LOVE THE PRODUCT. THE PERSON SELLING IT WAS EXTREMELY QUICK TO SHIP AND ACCURATE AS TO WHAT PRODUCT DOES AND THE PRICE WAS RIGHT! THIS PRODUCT IS EASY TO USE AND HAS AUTOMOBILE, PEDESTRIAN OR BICYCLE COVERAGE. IT CAN MARK AND LOCATE YOUR VEHICLE WHEN PARKED. I'M SO EXCITED THAT I'M STILL FINDING OTHER FEATURES! IT'S GREAT.
