I just got a 1450 for a friend, and updated the maps for him. I have a 1490T. I noticed that the update was only for US and Canada, and did not include Mexico. That is not a problem, but I was curious, as my 1490T includes Mexico. Was this because I didn't delete enough voices before the update to include Mexico, or would it not have been there regardless?
I also noticed that when I went to favorites, there did not seem to be any way to add "folders" or categories (like Address, Food, etc.) to the favorites. I can have those categories on my 1490LMT. So, it seems that the 1450 does not only not have "bluetooth" but is also somewhat less robust than the 1450.
Here's where you can display the two side-by-side and see the differences.
You got me to check and the 1490T does not come with Mexico only North America.
I don't disagree that the 1490 includes North America excepting Mexico, but just to pick a nit, Mexico is part of North America. Central American begins at Mexico's southern border. But then, we Yanks also tend to forget our Northern Neighbors when we speak of being "American."
I just got a 1450 for a friend, and updated the maps for him. I have a 1490T. I noticed that the update was only for US and Canada, and did not include Mexico...
Every map for life includes Mexico. In your title you say 1450 vs. 1490LMT
I also noticed that when I went to favorites, there did not seem to be any way to add "folders" or categories (like Address, Food, etc.) to the favorites...
Once you save certain number of favorites (I think it's 7) you get option to categorize them.
As much as I know there shouldn't be any difference between 1450 & 1490 except the bluetooth.
That's what I thought. Until I updated the 1450 maps, that is. Mexico was not included. It is on my 1490LMT. If the person getting the 1450 were likely to go to Mexico, it could be an issue worth pursuing, but I don't think he will ever go there.
I have Mexico on my 1490T. When you download the maps you have to choose North America and not just USA and Canada....
When I downloaded the maps for the 1450, Mexico was "blanked out," and not an option. US and Canada were all there. It was not that way when I downloaded the update for my 1490LMT last week: Mexico was not "blanked out."
I would call Garmin and find out instead of trying to figure it out here....
Hey, I resemble that remark! With the inter country travel in NA, garmin should include all three countries. For pete's sake ram is cheap, why does Gramin cause us to delete voices, cars, etc to make room for their frigging maps!!!!
