Garmin Nuvi 1300 Price, Free Maps, Tips and Tricks

At last, I finally got my hands on a shiny new Garmin Nuvi 1300 courtesy of a kababayan who i met online and bought the unit (along with an OBD II code reader) and hand-carried here (even if I've really yet to meet him)

Garmin Nuvi 1300 Review:

Car-mount GPS unit with 4.3 inches display, speaks street names but is kinda slow to respond to touch commands. JPEG viewer.

garmin nuvi 1300comes with dash-mount kit and car charger (no Garmin mapsource CD installer), 1s track log recording (diagnostic logging mode) but I still can't find the data storage folder for the hidden tracklog.

I got it installed with OpenStreetMap (a free GPS map of the Philippines) accurate in Quezon City, Makati where I initially tested it.

Garmin Nuvi Price in Philippines is about P7000.00 but local support/service centers not that many so you should know where to take your Garmin products for repairs.

This would be the initial post about the Garmin Nuvi 1300, watch out for more!

  1. dear paetechie,
    I'm glad to hear someone interested to mapping out our town Paete. I wish I could also log street names, and spotial geographic data and POIs in my unit when I come home, so that we can share download for the community of OSM_Phil.

    I donot know how to contact you in the Usap Paete, please email me at " "

    How I wish PAETE will be in the Digital Maps of GPS, it will help boost Information and tourism...

    Thank you,
