I'm confused about what you are trying to do when you say that you are trying to "play video of your 1450".

What exactly are you trying to do?

I think what he's asking is:

I think what he's asking is: "What is the native format of the display on the 1450"

The reason why I'm thinking that this is his question, is because when you format a video for a device, it's always best to match the native resolution of the display you wish to display upon, so there is less artifacts that can be generated/created by the processor, display or otherwise, on the conversion to the display of the 'receiving' device... if the two don't match.....

If it doesn't have to be converted, it displays faster, too.

Since when does any nuvi play videos? Did I miss a memo?

I'm so confused with Jan's answers... confused

Me too.

why would you think it plays videos?

This nuvi, according to Garmin's own site, doesn't even include a mp3 player. Garmin makes no claim that it can play videos. So why would anyone expect it to play videos?

Not this video..... That Video.

Garmin does offer several models with TV tuners that also accept A/V input from backup camera and/or DVD player. However, these models are not available in the US due to high probability of vehicle codes violations. Because, you can not watch TV/DVD when you drive, only the back seat passengers, and the purpose of GPS is not intended for use by mother-in-law in the backseat.

Maybe that's what rlujr7 was talking about.

In this case, it would be NTSC or PAL format, or whatever TV signal format in the country that unit was originally purchased.

That's Why?

Yea thanks for that answer cause I had downloaded some video from my files onto a micro sd and couldn't get it to play on nuvi what you said would make sence!
