'Plus, the unit doesn't power down automatically when you shut the car off, adding another extra step to the process, or leaving you with a dead battery more often than you'd like. '
'Generous database of 7 million POIs. '
'The new "50" series models also include TomTom's "IQ Routes," which calculates fastest routes and travel times based on historical data for road travel speeds rather than posted speed limits, and one of my favorites, Advanced Lane Guidance, which speaks and clearly displays the correct lane for your next turn on a multi-lane highway.'
'City Navigator NT street maps come preloaded as well as close to 6 million POIs (points of interest), 10 savable routes, choice of 2-D or 3-D maps, and, the digital elevation maps display shaded contours at higher zoom levels, giving a bigger picture of the surrounding terrain.'
'an integral part of any GPS navigators performance is adequate in the Nuvi 1450, with Points of Interest (POI) available along your chosen route, 2-D or 3-D map views depending on preference and custom POI upload all assisting to make traveling simpler.'
'A lifetime Suna traffic messaging subscription is included and this allows the 1450T to display traffic incidents, like planned roadworks, special events, jams and accidents, either via a coloured overlay on a black-and-white version of the normal map, as an easily digestible list or as a series of possible delays on your route. '
'The nuvi 1450T is surprisingly thin considering the 5in display, and the compact window mount means it's easy to clip on and off the windshield (this is particularly handy if you use your GPS in more than one vehicle).'
'For people who like the idea of having a 7-inch portable GPS and whose dashboard or console real estate is spacious enough to accommodate it, the RoadMate 1700 will make an excellent traveling companion--the best in its class.'
'Large, bright 7-inch screen'
'The main menu of the Magellan RoadMate 1700 is very clean and well-designed, making it easy to navigate for all users.'
'The screen is enormous, and very easy to read while driving.'
