Summary: Nice big color touch screen. The traffic feature is nice in that it does not require a subscription, but it's almost always inaccurate. It seems like it runs about 30 minutes to an hour behind actual traffic conditions. Lifetime map updates are nice, but it's a bit of a pain to bring it in and run the updater app of my computer for it. I think my next GPS is just going to be a cradle for my phone.
Summary: I bought this 1450LMT as a gift for my ex wife, (yes we get along just fine). I have a 1490LMT, which is the exact same as the 1450 + Bluetooth. I've never used the Bluetooth and niether will she so the 1450 is a little cheaper and the way to go. The lifetime maps and traffic updates are great. It does everything I want it to do. If it ever acts a little strange just "reset" it which is very easy to do and its like new again.
