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.

Pros: Works with out line of sight of sky ( with in reason ) , hands free great ,bluetooth , free life time map update and live traffic
Cons: mine broke on the 7th day however had no trouble getting new replacement not to mention Garmin went ABOVE & BEYOND to make up for the one that quit and gave me a free 100$ accessory for it as it was an inconvenience on my vacation thanks again
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.
Summary: We purchased this to replace our broken GPS system. Love this product because its very user friendly. The battery life is very reasonable. We also like the fun features you can download from the Garmin site.
Summary: Once I got to know how to operate everything this unit has been a real asset. I get the latest traffic updates and I avoid the traffic. It gives me my speed and the speed limit where I am. I'm discovering features I didn't know it had. Added an SD mini to increase info capacity.
Summary: My first GPS was a Garmin C330 and since then I have not bought another brand. We have other models still used in the family and I also bought two Nuvi 1300's for the ambulances in my fire department but the 1450 LMT is the best unit I have bought so far. The big screen and all the features are perfect for me. I have used it on very long trips and have arrived at my destination with no problems at all.
Summary: The 1450T is a great GPS compared to some of the junk out there! I use it in my 2011 Mercedes because I can't stand the inboard one! The Garmin gives me a lot more info like arrival time , traffic, alternative routes, etc... I now have two, one is a 4.5 inch and the new one is 5 inch. You would think that a half inch isn't that much but it is, plus it has more functions. Highly recommended!
