  • A. Yes, it cannot be distinguished from a brand new unit, from the paperwork to the actual box. I prefer refurbished, as you are guaranteed that it works correctly, whereas a new unit does not go through the quality control the refurbs do. Both Garmin and WalMart warranty the unit, Garmin with a one year warranty, and an additional year from WalMart for twelve dollars US.

  • A. LIKE NEW CONDITION...............ARE YOU KIDDING ME????????????? When I took mine out of the box it gleamed........no scratches, marring of the actual unit or signs that it had ever, EVER seen the light of day,dark of night or any other person's fingerprints, other than the fact it came in a clearly marked REFURBISHED box. I like FACTORY REFURBISHED items because then you know that a Technician that works for that company has replaced all bad parts and aligned the unit to factory specifications...........so in some cases it's as good or better than one that rolls off the line that a technician has not looked at............remember......your refurb unit came off the assemblly line broken OR MALFUNCTIONING in some way then they fixed it and now it finally came to rest with you.

My came with USB cord that connects to your computer for map updates and a utility cord that connects it to your car charger so the GPS can be taken with you when you leave the car the charge last 3 hours. It also has a stand that can connect to your car, but I don't use that, I don't want Theif's to know it is in my car.

I used this GPS for a trip through Idaho, Utah and parts in between. The maps seemed to be mostly accurate but the points of interest were, at times, outdated. I know that maps and traffic are updated from time to time, but I get the feeling that little effort is put into updating stores and other points of interest. In all fairness, I suppose that that would be a monumental task and beyond most GPS sellers. The four stars is because I have been using MS Streets and Trips on my laptop and I miss too many of it's features. The small GPS makes it hard to search the map out ahead of where you are going, to look up points of interest ahead of where you are, to choose the exact route you want on the fly without knowing addresses of each and every road you want to travel. Someday there will be a GPS that allows its users to give input of better routes in their areas, and with a little verification, add to the units of all users as an option of travel (less time and/or mileage, etc.)

I am very happy with this item. I was a bit concerned because it was refurbished, but I have had no serious issues. I love the fact that it comes with lifetime map updates and lifetime traffic. I was somewhat reluctant about the traffic receiver because all of the reviews I had read spoke of tons of ads, but I haven’t seen a single one (thankfully). The Bluetooth for my cellphone works pretty well, although I had issues with it at first and couldn’t get it to work. Whatever the problem, it fixed itself. I purchased the safety camera accessory separately and I am thrilled with that as well. The 5” screen is clear and easy to see. Also, I love the fact that the speed limit is displayed. Overall, I love this item and would not hesitate to highly recommend it . The only down was that it did not come with a user manual, but I just went to the Garmin website and downloaded it from there.

This is my third Garmin and my fourth GPS. I received the product on time, which was important because we were heading out of town two days later. It took an hour or two to "update" the product with the most current maps. But lifetime current maps was my primary reason for buying the product, so buck up and do it. Worst thing about the product are the "commercials." The old Garmins didn't have ads. This is the trend of the future. Like everything else that comes over the air waves, the Garmin company must be making additional $$ by plugging products. It was SHELL gasoline that I first saw, and it was irritating. I choose not to use Shell products unless the alternative is pushing the vehicle. I like the Garmin very much. I am trying to find out how to "opt out" of the ads.

This navigator is simple to use and fun as well. Although, there are only two voices pre-installed that allow the names of the street to be read as well as the direction in which to go, the voices are a very good quality. The free voices that you can install are fun to play around with. Best advice if you choose to use a voice that does not speak the street names is to make sure that you have the navigator in front of you on the windshield mount. Makes it better to see where you need to go so that you don't make the mistake of turning too early or too late. I like that it has a sd card slot for adding additional storage space. I have not had to use this yet but I have a 2 gb sd card just in case. Oh, and always always opt for the accidental warranty that Walmart offers. It really does give you peace of mind.

The Garmin Nuvi 1490 LMT is a great device. I really like the device. I like the fact that I don't have to look at the screen because she actually says the street names. I can sync it with my phone for hands-free calling. There are many other features that I have not tried as of yet, such as the traffic options. I do like knowing the speed limit and how it shows the speed in red when you are driving above the speed limit. This device has many features and it is easy to use. If you are going to get a GPS device, get one that offers lifetime maps, it is worth the money and allows you to avoid the hassle of getting lost when a new road is built. I am satisfied with my purchase.

I really like the larger screen. Makes it much easier to see. The night screen is far superior to my TomTom. So far it has found all the destinations I have entered. TomTom misses many subdivisions even though they have existed for more than three years. Very fast recalculation also. I don't like the manual. Actually, mine didn't come with a manual. I had to download a pdf. The manual available is for several different but similar models. It doesn't seem to have all the information for my model. Had to use the Help function on the device itself to find some things. Still haven't found an easy way to download new voices. The built in ones aren't very good. One Spanish and one English with a voice that isn't very clear. Blue tooth works great. All in all, I love it.

Received my Garmin Nuvi-1490-LMT refurbished and right out of the box all I had was the display unit. The Mount, Mounting Disk, Wire with Traffic Receiver and USB Cable were all missing. I called Garmin the next day and after waiting on hold for 30+ minutes a Representitive after much discussion and checking with his supervisor, another 20 minutes, agreed to send me the missing items. I asked for them to send them overnight, as I was anxious to use my new unit but he refused and said I would have to pay the additional shipping for that service, another $20.00. Well after waiting another week the iyems finally arrived and low and behold the unit does not work properly. The Cell Phone pairing works and does not work at it's whim. The map colors ie: blue water at times shows the water as black. The road colors change at whim and the power button works and doesn't, at times it requires several pushes to function. All in all I saved about $50.00 going with the refurb and now regret it. I'm going to return the unit and purchase a new one we will see what happens.

This is our second Garmin GPS unit. We were well pleased with the first one, but wanted to upgrade. The 1490LMT is truly awesome. The 5-inch screen may not seem like a big improvement over the 4.3-inch, but when you see it mounted over your dash, it is like going from a 19-inch TV set to a 42-inch HDTV. The unit from WalMart is an excellent value, as the MSRP for the 1490LMT is $250, and it cost just $110 through WalMart. I am still amazed at the features this unit has, especially the Bluetooth. In addition, if I go somewhere in my power chair, I can take the unit with me so I won't get lost. WalMart, you get a well-desereved two thumbs up!
