Summary: We only had this for a few days but it's working well. It does not have as many voices as the old Garmin had so we are missing Emily. The maps have more details so I guess there is no space for so many options. It's a good GPS and the size is good for people who can't see that well anymore...
Summary: This is my second Nuvi 1450. First was dropped too many times. Didn't care for the newer, smaller ones so I went on line searching for the Nuvi 1450. I would recommend this one to anyone who is interested in Garmin GPS.
Summary: We needed a larger GPS. We have a smaller Garmin which has worked great for several years. This one works great. Much faster than the older one. My only 2 complaints are that it took a long time to initially acquire satellites and the default voice is very broken. Free voices are very limited.
Summary: I bought the Garmin nuvi 1450 primarily because of the larger screen. The initial reviews were mixed, but there was only a couple when I was looking to buy. Because Garmin makes a quality product and often the negative product reviews are petty on their other products, I decided to buy one.
Summary: I like the ease of use of Garmin and I hate my Tomtom as it takes too many pushes of buttons to do the same thing, My wife had garmin and I loved the ease of use and the way it was routing, better than tomtom I think
