Love the traffic updates; Resizing the Screen and moving it around is a pain, though
15 November 2013
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.
Summary: I got this GPS for my husband as a Christmas present. Althought we haven't used it that much, it's good to know that you have the navigator in case you get into trouble traveling. With many ways to get to a destination, at least when you use this - you get there.
Summary: Having owned a Garmin 255W for quite a few years, I purchased two of these for work. They perform as expected for a GPS. The lane assist is a nice feature and helps while traveling around the cities. The main problem with this unit is the voice.
Summary: The product arrived promptly and quickly. It works great for the most part. I don't like the fact that it doesn't recognize some places and it takes too long to search. Also, too many steps to enter a destination.
Summary: The first thing I did upon purchasing this product is to update the maps. 1. The device does not have enough space for a full map update. Selecting the lower 49 states worked. 2. The much-touted junction view feature did not work.
Overall pretty good, some quirks -update- returned

Summary: I purchased this to replace an older Nuvi 350 that had trouble picking up the satellites. Overall, this is a pretty nice GPS. It's really big, very clear screen, and picks up the satellites very quickly. My only complaints so far have been that the screen is not as easy to tap on like the 350.
Summary: I have a Nuvi 350 that I have been using for five years. My only complaint was that the lifetime maps seemed too expensive, especially in light of the free maps you can get from Google on smart phones.
Summary: I paid $130 for my nuvi 1450 from amazon.com in January 2011. I found that the Garmin website [...] was a great help in selecting what models I was interested in. The website [...] was a great help in explaining what features were available.
Summary: Here are some of the things that I am not fond of. - The traffic on the gps is not very accurate. It'll say "0.01" (one minute) delay but it'll be ten instead. - Navigating through the point of interest is a pain. I always need to have an exact address.
