Lane Assist in my experience is more accurate than PhotoReal junction view, in that we have a tricky intersection nearby. The spoken voice and PhotoReal provide the wrong navigation information if you are not using the HOV lanes, but the Lane Assist has always "known" what to do.

Having said that, 99% of the time PhotoReal is helpful, and has amazing detail. I'd like it better if it provided a night view after sundown, but my 3790 always shows "daytime" with a blue sky.

What is your opinion about Garmin PhotoReal Junction compared with just Lane Assist.
I would like to upgrade my 4-year old 265WT to the 1450LMT which just has "Lane Assist". The newer ones have PhotoReal JUnction (split screen), but cost 50% with features I don't want.
PhotoReal could be useful in very special circumstances like Wash DC which has many traffic circles with 4-6 turns -- When is PhotoReal available - just for busy highways ??
I've spent quite a bit for original purchases, smart phones and map upgrades, etc. that dropping more money w/o any benefits is tiring & expensive.
