Garmin 1350LMT Review

 


Visitors: 234

The Garmin 1350LMT is basically an upgrade to the excellent Nuvi 1350T. All of the Garmin Nuvi 1200, 1300 and 1400 series of GPS units all come with customizable data fields and have the ability to utilize mass transit and pedestrian features on Garmin’s CityxPlorer maps.

Here Are Some More Great Reasons to Own the 1350LMT

Among all of the clutter of so many brands and models to choose from it's reassuring to know that you can trust one brand over all others and the Garmin 1350LMT certainly is in that trust category. The Nuvi models are varied and good with a model for just about any application. With the 1350LMT you get great value for your money.

The Garmin 1350LMT has a widescreen display which measures 4.3 inches across diagonally. The display is designed as a TFT with backlighting and VGA color touch screen with a resolution of 480x272 pixels. This display is easily viewable in brightly lit conditions and is anti glare which also allows for good off axis viewing.

Another nice thing about this model is it is upgraded from the 1350T as mentioned above. When you purchase this model you may never need to buy another one as it comes free Lifetime maps and traffic updates and that means no subscriptions. This is a big cost savings when you consider the price of updating these types of units every year or two. Traffic information is updated about 4 times a year for the GPS system so you always have the most up to date information.

The 1350LMT has also been redesigned to make it slimmer so as to easier to carry when on foot. It also has a rechargeable Lithium-Ion battery that will give you up to 4 hours of use.

This device can also calculate the most cost effective, “fuel efficient" route to take as well. It is called EcoRoute and can track fuel usage while driving helping to save you money.

Some other upgrades on this unit is in the touch screen display. There is a enhanced touch screen gestures that allow a person to wipe a finger on the screen to go from page to page. This unit also features lane assist which will tell if you are in the wrong lane to make a turn. Very useful for those times when you are not familiar with the roads and are in a complicated intersection or highway interchange.

A nice feature on this unit is the pedestrian mode. The new maps will show additional detail and can highlight the positions of bus and transit stops and even subway stations. You can even download bus schedules and live traffic feeds.

Here Are Some Details And Product Features:

Includes City Navigator NT information for the lower 48 states preloaded on the device
4.3-inch TFT color touch screen with a resolution of 480 x 272
Free lifetime map and traffic updates
EcoRoute fuel efficient routing to help you get to your destination while using the least amount of fuel possible
