Summary: I was expecting the traffic info with this GPS to be like Googlemaps where you get a look-ahead sense of traffic and can plan for alternate routes. Instead, all you get is an intermittant notification (usually incorrect) that tells you traffic in your path is delayed a couple of minutes.
Summary: This is the third Garmin in our family . . . and by far the worst. I am blaming it on the map updates, but there seems to be no logic to the directions and it seems far slower to respond than the previous two.
Summary: Initially, first trip it worked great! From then on thru today the unit keeps resetting itself. Went on line and there are a lot of these with the same issue. I am returning it. I do have a Zumo that has been flawless with the exection of the cradle for auto use. VERY weak connector!
Summary: This was supposed to be an uprade for us from the StreetPilot 5i. Good Grief. The Garmin nuvi 1450LMT routes us off of major interstates onto side streets with stopsigns & stoplights regardless of what setting (faster, shorter, ecoroute).
Summary: Bizarro routes and too many quirks !! I give it two stars because there must be some worse automobile type GPSes out there. But one and a half would be more accurate. any handheld beats this for non driving. Hardware about 1-2 stars. Routing software zero stars. Documentation one star.
Summary: The reason I did not give this Garmin better marks is because it will give you a street name (unless it does not have one) rather than a highway number and continue with that name until the street or highway turns into another name no matter where you are.
Summary: Wow, what a great GPS, until you need to know the names of the roads around you!!! Everything about the 1450 is great. I was loving it. Then I needed to see the names of the roads around me. Set the details to "Most" and zoom in, yet no street names, just gray lines. What were they thinking!
Summary: this unit looks good, finds satellites quickly, but there it ends. the voice is not very good, but worse than that, it takes me out of my way to get places. it will bypass a simple turn, and go a few blocks out of the way to get you to a place..
Summary: Received this today and updated the maps and software before use. After doing this, the unit could not even find my local police department. They have only been in the same location for over 30 years! May need to return this and go with a TomTom? What else is not on the map????????
Summary: I purchased the Garmin 1450 and am not pleased with it. On more than one occasion the unit would not turn on even after being charged. I took it to Pennsylvania on a trip to test it while my sister used her Magellan GPS.
