"very good" (5 out of 6 stars)

Value for money: "good" (4 out of 6 stars), "Recommended"

In terms of features, the Garmin nuLink 1695 is fantastic, say the folks at PC Pro, who were also pleased by its large, high quality touchscreen, easy to use interface, and loud, clear audio. However, they weren't as impressed with its performance when they took it on the road, noting that its route choices weren't always ideal and that the timing of its instructions could be better.

There is however a need for improvement with the handling of traffic warnings, which can be somewhat confusingly displayed and where the utility of the proposed route can sometimes be unclear. ...”
