Lousy traffic info

Bad Brain, Amazon
4 December 2012
  • 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. The GPS functions itself are fine but don't waste the money to purchase this 'traffic' version when you'll get practically no value from it.

Troubles.,,,,

Rouxstir, Amazon
8 January 2012
  • 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! FYI, the unit was never dropped, bumped, looked at funny, just started resteeing itself.

Includes Advertisements

Walt S., Newegg
19 October 2011
  • Summary: If I would have known advertisements were included I would have looked elsewhere. Without advertisements I would have rated this at least 4 stars.
  • Pros: works well. lane assist is nice. speed limit feature is very accurate, usually changes within 150 feet of the signs.
  • Cons: Device was pricey. And it has popups that advertise various hotels and movies.

bizarro routes and too many quirks

the olde professor "<< the truth will..., Amazon
10 May 2011
  • 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. Web site 1 star. Customer support 2-3 stars. UI 1-2 stars. You need to test this thing at home and learn its quirks before relying on it.

Not pleased with Garmin 1450

Hudson, Amazon
15 November 2010
  • 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. The Magellan gave better directions while the Garmin seemed to have taken us the long way around. I am not pleased with the unit.

Garmin has quality control problems

daniel spieler, Amazon
19 July 2010
  • Summary: I think that this is a potentially great product but a common problem that Garmin has is problems with their touch screen. My particular one failed fairly quickly after purchase (2 months). In the process of searching for possible fixes for this issue, you see that a large number of Garmin devices have touch screen problems. More generally, I'm not convinced that Garmin is competing on device quality. Rather I think they are competing on features.

Negatives überwiegt Positives, leider...

Martin Baumgartner, Amazon
4 August 2012
  • Summary: Ich wohne in Österreich und habe mit dem Garmin nüvi 1450T Spanien, Norwegen und Schweden bereist und musste leider feststellen, dass das Gerät nicht das hält, was es verspricht. Zusammenfassung (detaillierter Text weiter unten): Pro: + Einfache Bedinung + Suche nach POI's (+Suchdefinitionen) gut + Ansage deutlich + verständlich + Kreuzungsansichten (wenn auch wenige) + Akkulaufzeit Contra: - Satellitenortung (bspw.

es gibt Bessere

Dumeklemmer, Amazon
13 December 2011
  • Summary: würde ich nicht weiter empfehlen. Verliert oft den Kontakt zu den Sateliten. Weiß nicht, dass man sich in einem längeren Tunnell befindet. muss öfters nach Berechnen. Upates dauern Stunden. Wirklich Stunden!! Das gleiche gilt für lange Touren berechnen. Nein Danke --- werde kein Garmen Navi mehr kaufen.
