Can anyone who has this GPS comment on the live traffic aspect? Does it work like Google Maps, routing with the least traffic (fastest timings), etc? I'd love to get one and stop using the data on my smartphone

I've used it in the US an the live traffic works just like google maps. I don't think you can get that in Canada (I have enough data so have never tried traffic here). The only drawback with Garmins is that they keep discontinuing their models (there are so many ??LMTs out there). Once discontinued, free map updates are a hit and miss i.e may or may not work.

Eh, I can still get map updates for my 1490lmt that I got in 2011. It's just that Garmin FM traffic isn't that good by comparison.
Whenever someone asks a question that starts with "Why do they..." or "Why don't they...", the answer is always a) money, b) stupidity, or c) both.

If you have enough data, use your smartphone and it is better IMHO

I have been using my phone the whole time as a gps. For the most part it is enough however I still prefer a dedicated gps.

1. Not cellular service dependant. Example cross border shopping. Cross the border, lose data connection (roaming does not count as it cost extra)

2. Extra built in program in the garmin gps was actually pretty nice. Example. Keep left 2 lanes at next exit. Half the screen displays all the lanes of the highway and arrows indicate where you want to be. Also now it shows gas and food stops right along the map path.

3. Preserve phone battery. Mounting to the dash exposes the phone to more heat. Gps usually runs somewhat hot. Combine with the sun equals super quick battery drain.

I haven't had any issues getting map updates with my Garmin Nuvi 1490LMT and it's about 6 years old. I would be very surprised if they offered lifetime maps and then didn't honour it.

Garmin Traffic is available in Canada. from http://www8.garmin.com/automotive/nulin ... erage.html

I used this one in California, USA. Most of the times it worked fine, there were few issues if you can ignore:
1> Few times it gave exit directions (from highway) in less than 1 mile. During rush hours on Calif highway, it was hard to change to the exit lanes if you happened to be in the left lanes
2> When there were small roads in parallel and close to the highway, once I got onto the ramp to highway, it confused and asked me to make a U turn. It corrected after couple mins.
3> Sometimes it confused the directions if you backed up your car a bit before driving forward. It also corrected after few mins too.
4> There were few instances due to bumpy roads, the GPS moved side way instead of facing you, it confused the directions too. Moved the GPS back to facing the driver would fix issue.

If you have used google map or waze, you can't stand the Garmin traffic.

I disagree with this comment. I have used all 3 and I am satisfied with the garmin one. During my drive between Caledon ON and Burlington ON, every so often it kept updating traffic. The split screen on my unit (2589LMT) showed how much time added to trip due to traffic and how far am I from that traffic point.

It constantly updated every few minutes. Coming from someone who has been only using Google maps the last 8+ years. Tried waze and do not care for it.

However older garmin traffic was crappy. So it depends on the model.
