Garmin Nuvi 1350

As the entry-level thin Nuvi with a widescreen, the 1350 features a 4.3-inch screen, red light and speed camera locations, lane guidance, text-to-speech, and Australian and Kiwi maps. You miss out on Bluetooth hands-free though.

Derek loves nothing more than punching a remote location into a GPS, queuing up some music and heading out on a long drive, so it's a good thing he's in charge of CNET Australia's Car Tech channel.

The Good:Currently free updates for life (Nov2010-Jan2011)Speed Limits, Lane guidance, 30sec auto shutdown,

The Bad:Little letters on keyboard

I have been using Mio's for the past 3 years and have never really been happy with them.
I bought the Garmin1350 from JB Hifi for AU$196 and have found it is a great device. The display is a very nice and clear 4.3" widescreen unit.
The initial software update system is a bit of a pain to get your head around. but once you are up to date it works great.
If you don't need Bluetooth (which never really works well anyway) this unit is a bargain.
The only downside is when entering information I found the keyboard to be a little fiddly, but that is a minor issue.

After being assured this model had Lane Assist and Junction mode, I found it did not. The lane assistance is pretty basic. I thought I could also change the distance of "300 metres" to 500 metres before turning, but find I cant. The driving map is okay but again, was told this unit had the speed sign displayed but it only turns red if you exceed the speed limit. You need to know what the limit is first. It is more basic than I was led to believe by the salesman but it does seem to accurately predict the route. Loading the address to travel to is pretty easy for an oldie like me.

The Good:Has more info on screen than Navman & TomTom

The Bad:Does not have pre-loaded School Zone warnings

Overall it is pretty good - I previously tried TomTomXL340 & Navman MY50T GPS & found map display on Nuvi has more info like Current Speed - Zone Speed - ETA & current time - In order to get School Zones & RedLight/Spped camera you need to contact Garmin Australia at Australasia.Support@Garmin.com and ask for the Garmin Australia POIs: cameras and school zones‏ - You then need to connect the GPS to your computer via a USB cable to mini USB (Not supplied) and download the free attachments. This is not easy & unless you are familiar with computer downloads this is NOT easy - Why Garmin dont pre-load this essential software onto their GPS is completely stupid, as most other GPS include this in their pre-loaded software. Other than this the instructions & spoke street names are good & if you take a wrong turn it will tell you what to do without a "recalculating" notice
