Great Portable GPS

I have a significant hearing impairment and never thought I would be able to hear and understand what a GPS was directing me to do. Both the male and female voices are at a frequency level that I can clearly understand. It's fairly easy to program and use, I actually got lost on surface streets recently trying to avoid a traffic jam on CA78, I had no idea where I was. I reached into my glove compartment, pulled out the nuvi 1450, turned it on and pressed the home button, it took me right to my front door. The screen is big enough to see and follow and beats the heck out of a smart phone. You can use it walking, driving or riding a bike. They also have maps for flying and boating on several thousand lakes. I'm more than happy with it.Read full review...

Great Unit.

I just purchaced the garmin nuvi 1450t and it works great out of the box. It picked up the satelite quickly. The entire display is updated with much smoother lines and richer colors, and easy to see in the dark or at full sun light. The cigarette lighter power cord isn't the greatest, its too big and it sticks out about 6 to 7 inches it shoud have a smaller knob, this was the biggest dissapointment for me. But so far the unit works great even with out updating it.
Easy unit to work with out of the box, just by playing with the settings and changing the unit too you prefferences.I especially liked the ease of which I could scan for restaurants, gas, and any other point of interst closest to my current location. If you are looking for an easy to use GPS with street names spoken this is the one for you.
I will update this review when i test the unit further

Garmin 1490 GPS

The Garmin 1450 is the same thing as a Garmin 1490 but without the Bluetooth. The 1490 has Bluetooth and the 1450 does not. The 1450 has a silver face band, where the 1490 is all black in the front.<br>
The 1450 has Lane assist and Junction view. If you are going to use the current map set, 2014.20, you will have to use a 4gig Micro SD Card. The unit has 2gig's internal and the new maps are about 1.9gig just for the maps. With this card and a map update, this unit will do everything the newer Model 50's will do, and more like the 1450/1490 will do routes.

If you like a big 5" screen GPS then this is the one for you. Very easy to use, and you never have to look anything up in the manual it comes with. If you are going to us this walking, the battery does not last as long as the ones with the smaller screen like the 255.

great tool to have.

great resource. i get disoriented very easily, this simple operating tool helped me a lot.. I ve been seeing people using Garmin for a couple of years and I'm not so interested in owning one. I thought it's complicated to use. I bought one to try and this is awesome. Simple and informative. I wish there is a clock display on it while it's telling you your arrival time.
I will recommend this to friends and family who gets lost easy simple operation and self explanatory with prompts.
I like the 3d orientation that points exactly where you're heading and what the next street/intersection coming up so you get prepared to get on right lane. this summary does not have to be this long to post either. 50 characters should say it all. I would recommend a longer life battery so it could be wireless and not get inttthe way, I bought a plug in wall charger but not helping. any suggestions? this is is my first garmin so i cannot compare
i dislike the cord. it should come with log life span battery.......................................................there is no longer any more description and cannot submit because of long character requirement..................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................please post anyway excellent product. again,lessen your words requiremen

Easy to use and user friendly.

the package is very nice and the detail of the gps is very nice also. I like the 5' inch screen certainly make the direction much clearer and easy to navigate. the sounds can be adjusted really loud so anyone that talks and having a conversation can still be able to hear the gps. The best thing that comes with the gps package is the dash disk that i can put on with the adhesive backing so i don't have to mount it on the windshield any more. thanks garmin for this great invention.Read full review...

Very good, but for long trips.

This navigator for a trip about the country and to the city has acquired. A primary estimation - it is good. There are many questions on work FM traffic receiver. Very often information received on it, is late. The information that there is a difficulty of movement of a car often arrives, and the problem has dared for a long time already, or there is a difficulty of movement, but it doesn't register yet this device.
For long travel between cities and the countries – it is very good.
For travel to big cities, I would prefer the device with the GSM/GPRS-module, for correct display of difficulties in car movement.
