Garmin Nuvi 1450
I've had my Garmin 1450 now for about a week, and I got a great deal on it ($299). I was drawn to this GPS when I saw how easy it was to use for someone like me who has never had a GPS before purchasing this one. I played around with it on the store's display. The large screen can be easily viewed while driving without struggling to view it.
I love the touch screen feature, and the easy on/off button. It does effectively inform me of which lane I should be in; however, I do not see any road signs pictured on my GPS like the one pictured here. I see small arrows on the top left that display the correct lane to get in. I love that it also displays the time at which I should arrive at my destination.
It does not have bluetooth capability, and it does not come with live traffic updates (you will have to purchase it separately). I do wish there was a feature that would allow me to return to the main screen without continuously having to press the back button to get back to the home screen.
I haven't gotten lost using this GPS, and I was told today when I showed up for an appointment that they were impressed that I found their business location, since even people from their city tend to get lost and can not find the address- I am impressed. In my current city, the GPS will map it's way in a totally different location than is the most sensible option. Mapquest, and Google maps would not even use some of the routes. Perhaps it is because, I have it set on the fastest route. The GPS will easily re-route the trip if you miss a turn, or decide to go another direction. I am able to save 10 addresses to my favorites, which is helpful, but I want to save more than 10.
The points of Interest tab is great. I can find locations quickly for food, gas, coffee, medical attention, shopping, etc.
My research paid off...I'm thrilled!!
Over the past 10 months I had spent WAY too many hours reading reviews on GPS systems. Something would look like the best thing since sliced bread, then there would be reviews that the tech support was a nightmare, maps were outdated, etc. I liked the bigger size and the way this looked (the Interchange graphics especially)and was going out of state in February, so I had to make a decision. At the time, there were only a few reviews. On the day I prepared to order this Garmin 1450 there was negative review. I thought "Oh, great...", but ordered it anyway, totally overwhelmed & frustrated with the whole endeavor. It has truly been a delight. My husband has had a low-tech Garmin for years & I never liked it. My son has a Tom-Tom, friends have Magellans, etc. We found restaurants, every location we needed, all effortlessly. I was afraid to do the review immediately, for fear it would die in the future, so I have waited 3 months. All is good! The only negative thing I might include is we did need to "reboot" twice on hot days when it was on the dash - I assume because it got hot. The reboot takes only a few seconds & it never happened when I left it sitting on its Friction Mount on the gearshift mound (out of the sun). I am truly quite pleased & grateful that I haven't had problems. I hope whatever you select turns out to be such a successful experience!
This unit replaced an older Garmin. It was easy for us to operate since many of the operations/features were similar to the old one. We received it the day before a long trip (around 1100 miles round trip). We were familiar with the route, but we wanted to give the unit a good test since we have several other trips later this year where we do not know the route.
The overall features were good to excellant. However, the unit locked up once and it took us a while to get it back on line. The unit also randomly shut itself down 9 times, and it took several minutes each time to get it back on line. Since we knew the route, no problems were caused. But there are times where shutting down on it's own could cause significant confusion or problems.
We sent this one back. I think a GPS has to be reliable, otherwise why have it (the first Garmin never gave us a single problem). .
