Garmin Nuvi 1690

The nuvi top model 1690 opts for an integrated radio modem and Internet services. The 349 euro be worth?

The Garmin nuvi 1690 is the first Garmin navigation system with a live service via the Internet, called here “nuLink”. A mobile radio modem in the device is integrated, bringing up-to-date also a Google search, weather, flight schedules, a phone book and fuel prices as well as traffic information on the screen. Twelve months is already included with the subscription in the purchase price, then you can extend it for 79 euro per year.

Through the built-in modem is the Garmin nuvi 1690 slightly thicker than the colleagues of the 1300 series, the device acts but also high-quality and stable, thanks to the silver-colored border around the front. The display of the nuvi 1690 appears also somewhat contrasting; the other facilities are lane with Bluetooth hands-free system, and ecoRoute also completely. Missing is an otherwise almost self-evident in this class voice control however – here has the Garmin nuvi 1690 unfortunately nothing to offer.

This does not affect the operation: here the nuvi 1690 is similar to his little brothers and convinces also by rapid changes in menu and clear labels. There is virtually no tripping, everything is routinely made.

The latter applies also for the guidance – what a pity but almost back is because other top models here also can proliferate with 3-D effects and building plots. In 1690, however, one can distinguish the nüvi in terms of guidance from his brothers and sisters – that’s positive in terms of reliability, negative in regard to the higher price.

The nuLink services are managed well, especially the Google search and the gasoline price information proved in practice as a great relief. It was a little disappointing, though, that the slowdowns wasn’t too – apart from the traditional TMC Pro here is a separate test indicate closer to.
