Garmin's Nuvi 1350T is a very convenient and easy to use GPS receiver featuring built-in traffic with no subscription. It is thin and light, with a built-in rechargeable lithium ion battery so you can even use it for walking directions. The great thing about portable GPS units is that you can use them in your car, your spouse's car, etc. and take them with you when you travel. The screen is 4.3 inches across, like a large smartphone. the nice display offers a 3D view of your route, upcoming turns, arrival time, and speed limit on the road you're on (a great way to stay safe and avoid a ticket). The unit also speaks to you so you never actually have to look at it while driving. With its "Where Am I?" emergency locator, you always know your location. Simply tap the screen to get your exact latitude and longitude coordinates, the nearest address and intersection, and the closest hospitals, police stations and fuel stations. It has a very easy, touch screen interface that can simply ask you, "Where To?" and you can answer, it will get you directions there, taking into account fastest route, most fuel-efficient way and way around traffic.  
  • Widescreen ultra slim GPS design with 4.3-inch WQVGA touchscreen display; interface features improved graphics and a new slide control for menu operation
  • Pre-loaded with City Navigtor NT maps for North America, including more than 6-million points of interest and turn-by-turn directions with spoken street names (text-to-speech)
  • Pedestrian navigation capability enabled through optional CityXplorer maps, while ecoRoute suggests fuel-efficient routes to save drivers money and fuel
  • Integrated FM traffic receiver and free lifetime traffic updates for alerts about traffic delays and road construction that lie ahead on your route
  • NOTE: Model number on the box is 1350T because the traffic receiver is included; however, the model number on the device itself is 1350 as the "T" in 1350T refers to the additional component
