with features like lane assist with junction view, free traffic alerts,
hands-free calling, preloaded maps of everywhere you'd ever want to go
in North America and ecoRoute which tells you the most fuel-efficient
route, the nüvi
the only navigator you'll ever need.
The Garmin 1390T is just one of many popular Garmin GPS models!
Trim the Fat - Slim Down Bulky Units
The 1200 and 1300 nuvi series models are 25% slimmer than other nuvis, making them an ideal (and essential) traveling companion. This Garmin nüvi is slim enough to tote in your purse or even your pocket. Don't worry about its battery running out - the rechargeable lithium-ion battery lets you carry it in your vehicle or on foot. Tired of getting lost in the certain big cities? Hard to navigate public transportation like subways, buses, trams and more? Be sure to download the optional CityXplorer content (it's coming soon) and utilize the new Public Transit mode.
Banish Turn Anxiety - Know the Right Lane Ahead of Time
Ever had to guess which lane you should be in when you know you're going to have to make a turn? You'll never have to again! The 1390T's Lane Assist feature takes the guesswork out of figuring out which lane you'll need to be in. Confusing intersections and exits will be easy to navigate with junction view guiding your lane choices and showing you road signs and junctions on your journey with arrows clearly marking which lane you should be in.
The Big Picture
The Garmin 1390T gives you directions on its 4.3 inch easy-to-read display. With brilliant and stunning color images, you'll even be able to read the screen in bright sunlight.
Two Questions - One Clear Answer
The Garmin nüvi interface gives you two options: “Where to?” and “View Map.” Tap the touchscreen to put in your destination or service and you'll get clear turn-by-turn directions that tell you exactly where to go. The navigator is already packed with US and Canada City Navigator NT street maps, roughly 6 million points of interest (POIs), your choice of 2-D or 3-D maps and even the speed limit for main roads. Have other POIs that aren't well-known? Upload your favorite places that are few and far between. Know the terrain around where you're going by zooming in to the digital elevation maps. Slide your finger and easily scroll between screens. It's also equipped with HotFix satellite prediction, which determines where you are faster, taking you there quicker than you ever thought possible.
Keep Your Eyes On the Road with Hands-free Calls
Combining bluetooth wireless technology with a built-in microphone and speaker to keep your calls hands-free, this device will help keep you safe! Just hook it up with your compatible Bluetooth phone. Need to make a call? Tap the numbers on the touchscreen. Incoming call? Tap the screen and speak towards the microphone. Don't forget to take advantage of one-touch dialing for people and places you plug in.
Never Get Caught In Traffic Again
The nüvi 1390T comes with free lifetime traffic updates and an FM traffic receiver so you can avoid traffic delays. You'll get the latest traffic delays and road construction alerts so you can plan your route ahead of time. Not sure of a good detour? Touch the screen to hear details of the alert and it'll show you the best way around the congested area.
Navigation – To The Next Level
The 1390T isn't just any old navigator. Use its ecoRoute feature to save gas and money. It'll show you the most fuel-efficient route and track how much fuel your vehicle uses. On top of that, it comes with a JPEG picture viewer, world travel clock with time zones, currency converter, measurement converter, calculator and more. Use photo navigation to download images from Garmin Connect Photos and easily get to them. Manage to get lost in a new place or have an emergency? Use the emergency “Where Am I?” locator to figure out exactly where you are. Just tap the touchscreen and you'll get your coordinates, the nearest address and intersection as well as the exact location of the nearest hospitals, police and gas stations. It also comes with Garmin Lock, an anti-theft device and works with the free Garmin Garage – download custom vehicles and voices. Take your navigator even farther with optional plug-in microSD cards.
