How we score

The Engadget Score is a unique ranking of products based on extensive independent research and analysis by our expert editorial and research teams. The Global Score is arrived at only after curating hundreds, sometimes thousands of weighted data points (such as critic and user reviews).

PC Mag says:

Despite pesky ads that come with free lifetime traffic, the Garmin nüvi 1390 brings many high-end navigation features down to a budget price point. And it helps you drive more efficiently.
