  • A. The nuvi 1490T is not packaged with lifetime maps. The mapping set loaded on the unit depends on when it leaves Garmin's warehouse. Because Garmin releases map updates 4 times a year it is unlikely you would have the latest available map version on the unit. That is why Garmin offers a 60 day “Numap guarantee”. When you register a Garmin at www.garmin.com within the first 60 days from when you first turn the unit on, if there is a map update available or if you already have the latest maps and a new map update is released in those first 60 days, you would be eligible for a free update in those first 60 days to insure the latest available mapping version is on the unit. After the initial free map update onetime updates are $49.99 and the lifetime update program is $89.99.

I really like my Nuvi 1490T. I never had a GPS before, but now after 3 weeks of using it, I can say that this is not just another piece of technology that you use once and then store in your drawer forever. It is really helpfull. I am not from US and I use it to manage myself in my city, Lincoln, Nebraska or to travel. The features I like the most are its big 5" inch screen. That really helps find things easier. I also like the bluetooth feature. I can connect my phone and speak handsfree and even dial numbers with voice commands. That´s really cool and usefull. I also like that it tells you the correct lane when you have to take an exit or turn. Finally, I also like that it can speak in several languages, we use English and Spanish. The only concern is that, I have dowonloaded the map update for US and Canada, and I found thoug, that the map of Lincoln, Nebraska is not 100 % up to date, but it is just a minor inaccuracy, maybe 1 % or less. I think it is a great help and relieves you from using messy maps, when you go to places that you don´t know.

I purchased the 1490T for $118.00. It was a great value for a refurb unit. I recommend one to register for the warranty online with Garmin and do the free updates to the map software so that it is current and completely up to date. The update took almost 5 hours on my high speed connection, if you have dial-up, forget it. Love the 5" screen, big difference from the 3" on my old GPS. The favorites are great and so are the live traffic features.

I have now had a couple of weeks to work with the new Garmin 1490T. I should begin by mentioning that I have been using Garmin GPS units in airplanes for quite some time, and my experience with ROAD GPS units began with a Street Pilot III soon after they were introduced. Currently I also have a Garmin KNA-G510 which drives a 7" in-dash Kenwood display and a nuvi 660. I compared the 1490T to both the G510 and the 660. I did not have any of the issues with "buggy" software forgetting my settings which others have mentioned. For me, the 5" screen of the 1490T was one of the attractive features; it provides almost as much viewable map area as the 7" G510 display; the 510 has most of the data outside of the map, whereas the 1490T and the smaller 660 have these as overlays onto the map. The 1490T map appears more "crisp" than either older map display as smaller width lines are used for most features. The older, thicker lines look bolder, but the thinner lines contribute to a sharper looking display. The 1490T labels use upper case and lower case letters rather than upper case only, and this too contributes to a somewhat more legible display in my opinion. One unusual note: at night the 1490T background appears dark blue rather than black. I think the contrast is better with black and would prefer the more dim background of the older units. The most dramatic new 1490T feature is HotFix (tm), a feature present in the airborne units since introduction, but new to the road units. The result is a very rapid calculation of position when the unit is turned on. My 660 often requires a full minute longer than the 1490T which might require less than 3-5 seconds. I also have the impression that if my 1490 is charging in my car, it may be partially "on" and maintaining a fix in the background. In either case, the very rapid navigational fix is very noticeable and much appreciated. For example, a rapid fix is really useful in a strange area, when you return to your car and need to start driving out of the city, for example. The long wait for a fix as you leave the parking garage, or pull from your parking space seems like an eternity. One odd display change - while my older units will usually say something like "Oak St. Ahead" in the green boarder stripe at the top of the screen, the 1490T will say "Driving on Main St". Now I will grant you that in answer to the "where am I now?" question, it may be more important to know that I am on Main Street, but when I am looking for Oak Street, the older displays seem better. While it is true that the 1490T will have a map label for Oak Street (most of the time) and it is located properly on the map, this is somewhat harder to read than the larger type in the green stripe. This may also relate to the 1490T approach to placing map labels on streets but not on "things" like parks and neighborhoods. Others have commented negatively on this loss of map labels. I think the 1490 labels more streets, so I am OK with this. The 1490T appears to calculate positions and speeds and/or display more quickly; it is hard to tell which. If I decelerate slowly, the 1490 displays the decreasing speeds more rapidly than the 660. This may be due to a more rapid calculation or it might be due to a more rapid display cycle. Either (faster fixes/calculations or faster display updates) could contribute to more rapid updates of map display. It is hard to tell for sure, but it does appear to me that the 1490T map display updates more often and this appears more smooth. I have had only a little experience with traffic data, but my first impression is that this is somewhat better integrated into the 1490T. For example, you can tell when you are receiving traffic data on the 1490 from the main map screen and the color indicates traffic conditions. I have not had a chance to see the Junction View or Lane Assist feature, but I did like the turn preview feature, which, after a short display interval automatically returns to the map display. If my other units do this, I must have missed it; this is a nice feature as it eliminates a longer glance at the screen and another button push at exactly a time when you might be busy. One last positive note: the 1490 has a scale bar AND a north diamond, my 660 has neither. It is a little hard to accept anything as a navigator if it does not indicate "north". Both 660 and 1490T do the same auto-zoom which for some reason I never noticed on the 660. Maybe it is more obvious now that I have the scale bar to read on the 1490. The 1490 shows topo features when zoomed out a ways, and this is nice - a cute feature to show off. I was tempted to set up a double system in my car to mirror a double GPS display I have fooled with in the airplane, i.e. one screen zoomed in with track-up, and one zoomed out with north-up. But, aside from the question of whether you really need this in a car and aside from the odd looks one gets, perhaps this would invite one to spend too much time with their head in the cockpit and not on the road.

This is our third Garmin and, like other's we've owned, it's very user friendly. Pretty much just plug & play. Every new one we've bought has a larger database. I'm still discovering things it does. On this model your speed shows up red if you're over the speed limit. That feature alone was worth the upgrade. I like the larger screen too, it's much easier to read. Haven't used the traffic yet, but I'm sure it'll be helpful.

This GPS came after ordered only two days and was in perfect condition for a refurb. The sales price was almost half off the list price and that is if you can find one in the stores. This GPS is so easy to use even I can do it and never looked at the manual once. Easy graphics etc. Only complaint is when it recalculates a route due to traffic ahead and doesn't always make sense. All in all one great deal and I'm completely satisfied.

I picked up this nuvi GPS unit from Walmart via the Ship-to-Store method since this item can only be purhcased Online. After I picked up the GPS item, I tried using it in my car right in the Walmart parking lot in my car. I booted up the GPS unit and it stated it had No Map Data installed. I could not use the GPS unit at all. I then call the Garmin Tech Support number on my cell phone in my car. Garmin said that the unit has no Map Data and that it has to be brought back to the store for a refund. I did that right then, I walked back into Walmart and got a full refund put back on my credit card. Now I have to reorder this same unit again, hoping the next one HAS the Map Data installed. This is crazy.
