TOPIC - nuvi 1695
Connected GPS (GSM Module) - 5" Screen - nüLink - nüRoute
Latest software version : v3.00 (06/19/2011)


Product page on the Garmin site : >> link <<


UPDATED 20110108 : New tracker firmware version shown at CES 2011, see details on page 12.

UPDATED 20101014 and 20101118 : nuvi 1695 now shipping, first user reviews on page 4 and here on page 10.


Anyone heard anything about this? "A new nuvi is coming down the highway, and it means business. Navigational business. It's the Garmin nuvi 1695, a connected GPS device that offers Bluetooth and GSM, much like the 1690 before it. In fact, it's not entirely clear what makes this different from the last year's 1690, but GPSTracklog speculates this will offer Garmin's traffic trends feature also found in the 3700, augmented by real-time updates from every other 1695 user similarly stuck in traffic. Seems like a good guess to us, but we're of course more curious about how much the thing will cost -- $500 for the 1690 when it was new was a bit of a bitter pill to swallow."

If it's in the pipe, I'm not interested as the 37xx series has now caught my attention. On top of that, I had multiple bad experiences with the 1690 with bad hardware & buggy firmware. It was however a nice unit when it worked correctly. If you need the connected nuLink services, the 16xx series is the only one to currently deliver.

I noticed that yesterday over here. I'll be curious to see what the difference is from the 1690. I wonder if it will include voice commands?

Any new info about the 1695? So far I can only find the same old news from a month ago.

It has to come out by the end of the summer to match the TT 1000.

It'll be interesting to see how the two are priced.

One thing I would like to see is worldwide roaming too, even as an option, I have my European nuvi 1690 with me in California and it's pretty useless without any of its connectivity and with RDS TMC receiver via miniUSB compatibility "killed" to boot.

Reported by gatorguy on a different forum amazon.com has the 1695 for pre-order with what looks like the only change is only 1 free year of nuLink service and a 5" screen. http://www.amazon.com/Garmin-5-Inch-Portable-Navigator-Services/dp/B003ZUXW70/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1283297178&sr=8-1

So bigger screen and shorter subscription (2 years for the 1690 in the US and 1 year in Europe). "Currently, item can be shipped only within the U.S." probably means Garmin are still not using a quad-band GSM chip, I'll pass!

Hard to see any reason in buying the 1695 at $450 over the 1690 currently at $260 new (MSRP of $450 too).

Does anybody happen to know if either the Garmin Nuvi 1690 or 1695 gets supplemental A-GPS data from the cellular towers? I am assuming not, but since it has GSM capability anyway, it would seem like a worthwhile feature.

Nobody would know for the 1695 at this point but there is no indication that the 1690 does, it uses Garmin's now standard "auto-AGPS" though, they call it HotFix. Unlike smartphones like the iPhone the nuvis have a real GPS antenna that can receive a good level of signal from the satellites so full-AGPS isn't of the essence, we've already had this dicussion in the nuvifone topic.

Didn't notice this before but it says it includes "Smart features like trafficTrends historical traffic and myTrends predictive routing help you get there on time."

Good catch, can't say I find them very useful on my 3790, actually nuRoutes dramatically increases route calculation times with no visible impact on my routes or ETA so I deactivated it, but more users hopefully means improvements over time.

I have disabled trafficTrends and myTrends on ny 3790 as well. It definitely does increase calculation time, and I got tired of myTrends "suggesting" destinations for me as I drive (including returning back home for the first 5 miles out of the driveway!).

However, they do seem to work and have some value. If you deviate from a calculated route and go your own way, after doing this a couple times the 3790 "learns" and will start showing the route you actually drove with its own initial calculation. I actually thought that was pretty cool.

Driving around central Manhattan in NYC, it had me zig-zagging on side streets instead of taking the obvious, direct route on the main street. This seemed to make sense and did help avoid traffic. Unclear as to whether it really saved any significant amount of time however.

Interesting feedback, a bit lost here so I started a new thread to discuss nuRoute, especially since it's now not a 3790 exclusive anymore -> http://www.gpspassion.com/forumsen/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=137357 - if you can repost your comment over there, thanks.

Is there any indication if the 1695 will interface with Mapsource?
