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.
Love the traffic updates; Resizing the Screen and moving it around is a pain, though

Summary: Love the traffic updates (which work in my area), even though they are consistently about 15 minutes behind traffic reality. Resizing the map and grabbing the map to move it around in the window, are a pain, though. The GPS seems to have a mind of its own, and often moves the screen to another location after you release it, or resizes as it thinks is appropriate, not as you set it.
Summary: With this GPS I don't get confuse and take the wrong exits or freeways anymore. It's very clear and tells you exactly which lane you should take and where to exit. The gps is very simple to understand and use. The screen is also a perfect size. Lovely GPS !
Summary: If you are looking for a GPS that has all you need for your trip go for this, there are others with more features but for any travel or commuting you don'nt need more than 1450 any of them. Best bang for your buck.
Pros: I bought this device last year and it has been wonderful. No issues and easy to customize.
Cons: USB port is now loose on it and my RMA is underway although I find it very annoying I get a refund of $119 ( as I originally paid), No replacement even though I bought the extended warranty. Now this device is $199, I can not afford to repurchase the same one with the refund I got.
