Garmin nuvi 1450LMT

 

The Garmin nüvi 1450LMT adds lifetime map updates to the nuvi 1450T (which already includes lifetime traffic). All this in a package with a 5” wide screen and multi-destination routing, lane assist and junction view (pictured above).

Garmin nuvi 1450T

The 1450T is an excellent unit, but it brings only incremental changes to the nuvi line. The luxurious 5” screen is very nice, but a 4.3” screen is more than adequate for most folks.

The 1450 is an excellent unit, but it brings only incremental changes to the nuvi line. At 0.6”, it is (along with the nuvi 12xx and 13xx series) the thinnest GPS on the market. The luxurious 5” screen is very nice, but a 4.3” screen is more than...

Garmin nuvi 1450T GPS unit

 

Garmin's latest nuvi GPS has an extra-large 5in display

Large screen, simple UI and map screen, excellent navigational experience overall, advanced lane guidance, live traffic updates, accurate maps, safety alerts

Tends to prefer main roads, visual safety alerts are too small, audio could be louder

Garmin's nuvi 1450T continues the fine form of the nuvi range. The extra real estate offered by the 5in screen is well utilised, making this yet another excellent GPS unit from Garmin. Highly recommended.

Working great for years

 

Works great, came with lifetime free maps. Easy map updates and easy to navigate through screens.

I've missed a few turns on interstates due to the GPS not updating fast enough. Overall, it's not bad but just need to be careful.

Most excellent

 

I bought this device last year and it has been wonderful. No issues and easy to customize. Would buy this same unit again but see below why I am unable to.

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...

Traffic is a mixed bag

 

This is my 3rd Garmin vehicle GPS, but my first with traffic. It will tell me of an accident or congestion ahead, but most of the time there is just nothing you can do about it.

- Traffic is very accurate on freeways/highways. - came with free lifetime map updates - 5 inch screen is amazing - A must have for anyone who does any driving in a car on public roadways :)

- Traffic will reroute you off the highways if it sees a faster route on the secondaries. BUT it assumes that you will not hit any traffic and you will make all lights. Totally ineffectual. In real terms, the traffic program is a fail. Just watch your...

Good GPS

 

Large, bright display. Fast, accurate, clear turn-by-turn directions, Extensive database of points of interest.

Even though I updated maps immediately before, still had old state highway numbers rather than current Interstate highway designations during recent trip to Jacksonville, FL.
