Richard , Tonbridge Always use sat nav

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Excellant really easy to use,took it round Europe and it was really usefull but in Poland it kept trying to send us on a road that had not been built yet and so keeps telling you to make a U turn we had to drive a long way before it came up with a new route so maybe the maps are a little too advanced and it did not spot all the speed cameras.that said I would recomend it to anyone great value for money.
Bad points:
You need to be able to tell it you are going on a diversion or the road is closed so it can find you a new route.

Traffic Alerts

Not every traffic service is equal. With Garmin you’ll always know what lies ahead. And it’s subscription-free, for life. Based on Trafficmaster data, there is extensive coverage of the road network (100% on motorways in England, Scotland and Wales). Know how long you’ll be held up, and choose to be routed around the queues. There is pan-European coverage on selected sat-navs.

Make hands free phone calls

Keep your eyes on the road and both hands on the wheel with nüvi 1210’s integrated Bluetooth® wireless technology, microphone and speaker. Just pair with your compatible mobile phone and talk hands-free through the nüvi.

Simplicity and safety

Supreme route awareness

Avoid last-minute panics and lane changes with Lane Assist. It shows you the correct lane to be in for upcoming junctions, giving you supreme route awareness. Junction view shows you realistic pictures of upcoming junctions so you get a clear idea of what is ahead of you.

Ultimate simplicity

nüvi 1390T has a simple, intuitive menu. Just touch the screen to look up addresses and get turn-by-turn directions. nüvi announces street names before you make a turning – e.g. “Turn right into Dell Road” so you can keep your eyes on the road at all times.

Speed cameras

Garmin has a unique, pan-European speed camera warning system, giving real-time, reliable, and accurate alerts. nüvi 1200 has the location of fixed, average speed, mobile and temporary cameras already built in. New or moved cameras are constantly tracked and the database is updated daily.
