My daughter has one that works great. When mine came it could not find the satellite and believes it is in another state. I have returned it for replacement. Overstock was great with the return and I am hoping the next one works as well as the one my daughter has.Read More

I was very excited when I read the specs on the Nuvi 1690. I was most intrigued by the connectivity service through Garmin's NuLink service. Unfortunately, at least for me, it did not work one time. I live in San Diego (with good AT&T service which supplies the connectivity) and not once was I able to connect. It would constantly say "Server busy, please try again latter". I also took it on a business trip to LA and New York with no results. I'm assuming that it was an issue with the hardware or setup since I did upgrade to the latest firmware. It's know it's not AT&T because I get fantastic service with my handsets and I did not run into drop outs on my phone while traveling. I tried to contact Garmin for support and it was a waste of time. I waited 45 minutes on hold without talking to a soul. This seems to be a constant problem for everyone that seeks support with them. The GPS itself looks and works fantastic. Tons of useful features, great interface and fast connection to satellites. I just wish the connectivity would work for me. I sent it back and got a 765T. Not as many features but pretty solid GPS wise. I'll wait for the next gen of NuLink devices. Hopefully I'll have better luck. Bummer...Read More
