Nuvi 1450 LMT Navigation device - Complaint
OLATHE, KANSAS -- Rec'd a Garmin Nuvi 1450LMT navigation device for Christmas 2011. At that time I took it out of the box & played with it for a few minutes, then put it away until 2 days ago. We're finally going to be in a position to use it on an upcoming trip. When I tried to turn it on, there was no response- dark screen. Assuming the battery was dead, I plugged in to my computer and left it to charge overnight. Still would not power up, so I plugged it into my car for the following night, but that also did not work. I called Garmin Cust. service and their representative politely told me that it was out of warranty and repair cost would be $110!
Never got to use it and Garmin would not help. Lesson learned.
