Garmin Complaints & Reviews

Garmin / Update maps

Les209 on Oct 24, 2016
I googled Garmin to find it's website to download current maps. When I clicked on the link, it said to call an 888 # to get assistance. I called the number and it was answered by a woman with a heavy Indian accent, making it difficult to understand her. After many requests by me to repeat...

Garmin / GARMIN GPSmap 6008 Chartplotter

kevinleary on Jul 22, 2016
Bought this unit brand new and had it professionally installed. Initially it worked nicely, but after I arrived on the Irish west coast the unit began to freeze and loose satellites. The unit was shipped with outdated or defective software and the GARMIN support staff, in a most...

Garmin Nuvi 2597 LMT / Poor software and hardware

garminsucks on Mar 8, 2015
The Garmin Express software gives you the option to continuously run Garmin Express in the task bar. If you disable the option, Garmin Express still continuously runs in Windows, though it does not show up in the taskbar. There is no reason anyone would need to continuously run their GPS...

Garmin GPS / loss of service

earth2hal on Sep 20, 2013
I purchased a Garmin GPS 1490LMT with lifetime traffic and map update service. 23 months into my purchase the speaker failed and now makes incomprehesible buzzes. A software reboot did nothing. Garmin offered $120 toward the purchase of any list price replacement unit costing at least $240...

Garmin nuvi 2595LMT - Maryland / GPS sucks

Gami-NO on May 31, 2013
1. Poor charging: Garmin tech suggested taking the unit home every night to charge. Are they nuts? 2. No route optimization: great voice command software – but pissy programing. You are driving to point A and you want to find coffee on the way. You can “start new route” which...

Garmin Nuvi 1450lmt - Ontario, Toronto / Out of order after 14 months only

ninakuru on Apr 28, 2013
The Garmin nuvi 1450 started to shut itself off only after 14 months of purchase. Although I tried everything that the support centre suggested, nothing has changed . I will buy a new GPS which is not Garmin.

Garmin - Florida / No help with problem

Sandyz on Oct 23, 2012
I bought a Garmin Nuvi 1450 in April, 2011; I also bought the official Garmin case. It worked fine, even on our most recent trip until suddenly it didn't. The touch screen stopped working, and we realized the screen was cracked. The device had never left our car and was not dropped. I...

Garmin 260W / Faulty hardware and software

Micro Ship on Oct 7, 2012
Garmin continues to make and sell units that have insufficient memory to hold maps. They also have failed to allow the addition of secondary memory, in this case, an SD card. to store map updates. In addition to the hardware design flaws, the updater software does not allow the user to...

Garmin Painesville / Rip offs on updates

Sixome on Aug 31, 2012
I bought one of these for my husband for Christmas at Walmart. It needed Map updating as soon as we used it the first time, which I purchased for about $80. I understand the updating but the cost is ridiculous for the updates. If I would have known you have to pay to constantly update the...

nicolb on Jun 12, 2012
I bought a nuvi 1310 just over a year ago. It was working fine until I did a firmware update from the Garmin website. My GPS keeps resetting itself now, approximately 3 times in 20 minutes, constantly. I had this GPS now at Garmin Johannesburg twice and all they could do was a firmware...

Garmin Nuvi 1490 LMT / Won't work in my cars

jpiano on May 24, 2012
I purchased a Garmin Nuvi 1490LMT and it won't work in my 2005 Toyota Highlander or 2008 Miata. They say it is the window tinting. Now I'm stuck with a useless $150 item.
