Bought my husband the Garmin Nuvi 1450 with lifetime maps last Xmas for two reasons - 1-screen size, 2-lifetime map updates. Have been trying for more than 11 months to update the maps. First Garmin blamed my PC, I bought a new PC last month, still no luck. PC recognizes the unit is connected, their a$$hole software does not recognize the unit is connected. They send me instructions for updating, which might work if their software recognized the unit is connected but evidently I'll never know.

At least I bought it on sale and we like the bigger screen. Now here's hoping he doesn't get lost..he drives for a living.

Have friends considering purchasing their first GPS, I have suggested to them to select something other than Garmin...I know my next GPS purchase will be...

Thanks for letting me rant.
