Garmin Nuvi 1490T GPS Navigation System, Model 0100081005

The large screen nüvi® 1490T offers multiple-point routing and lane assist with junction view to help you manage busy highway interchanges. It also has subscription-free traffic alerts for most cities, hands-free calling, pedestrian navigation options and ecoRoute™.

Features:

  • See Even More
    It's easy to see where you're going on nüvi 1490T's 5-inch touchscreen display. View map detail, driving directions, photos and more in bright, brilliant color. With its large screen, you'll always get the big picture
  • Navigate City Transit
    With its enhanced pedestrian navigation capabilities, nüvi 1490T is the perfect travel companion for getting around town. Download optional cityXplorer™ content to help you navigate city public transit. Know where to walk, where to catch the bus, subway, tram or other transportation and how long it will take to get there. cityXplorer maps are available for select cities throughout North America and Europe. And with prices as low as $9.99, you'll have money left over to spend in the big city
  • Take It With You
    Twenty-five percent slimmer than other nüvis, you can take the ultra-thin 1490T anywhere. It easily fits in your pocket or purse, and its rechargeable lithium-ion battery makes it convenient for navigation by car or foot
  • Know the Lane Before It’s Too Late
    No more guessing which lane you need to be in to make an upcoming turn. Lane assist with junction view guides you to the correct lane for an approaching turn or exit, making unfamiliar intersections and exits easy to navigate. It realistically displays road signs and junctions on your route along with arrows that indicate the proper lane for navigation
  • Plan Ahead
    nüvi 1490T includes advanced navigation features to take the worry out of traveling. With route planning you can save 10 routes, specify via points and preview simulated turns on the 1490T's large screen. In addition, nüvi 1490T automatically sorts multiple destinations to provide an efficient route for errands, deliveries or sales calls. A trip log provides an electronic bread crumb trail of up to 10,000 points, so you can see where you've been on the map
  • Get Turn-by-Turn Directions
    nüvi 1490T's intuitive interface greets you with two simple questions: "Where To?" and "View Map." Touch the color screen to easily look up addresses and services and get voice-prompted, turn-by-turn directions that speak street names to your destination. It comes preloaded with detailed City Navigator® NT street maps, nearly 6 million points of interest (POIs), 2-D or 3-D maps and the speed limit for most major roads. Its digital elevation maps show you shaded contours at higher zoom levels, giving you a big picture of the surrounding terrain. With the 1490T's enhanced user interface, you can slide your finger to conveniently scroll between screens. You can also upload custom points of interest (POIs). And with HotFix™ satellite prediction, nüvi calculates your position faster to get you there quicker
  • Make Hands-free Calls
    For hands-free calling, nüvi 1490T integrates Bluetooth® wireless technology with a built-in microphone and speaker. Just pair it with your compatible Bluetooth phone and talk hands-free through the 1490T while staying focused on the road. Simply dial numbers with nüvi's touchscreen keypad to make a call. To answer calls, just tap the screen and speak into its built-in microphone. Enjoy convenient one-touch dialing for contacts and points of interest
  • Receive Free Traffic Alerts
    Steer clear of traffic with nüvi 1490T's integrated FM traffic receiver and free lifetime¹ traffic updates. Receive alerts about traffic delays and road construction that lie ahead on your route. Next, simply touch nüvi's screen to view traffic details or detour around the problem area
  • Go Beyond Navigation
    Navigation is just the beginning. nüvi 1490T saves you gas and money with ecoRoute — a green feature that calculates the most fuel-efficient route, tracks fuel usage and more. The 1490T includes many travel tools including JPEG picture viewer, world travel clock with time zones, currency converter, measurement converter, calculator and more. With photo navigation, you can download pictures from Garmin Connect™ Photos and navigate to them. It's also compatible with MSN® Direct (receiver purchase and subscription required). With its "Where Am I?" emergency locator, you always know your location. Simply tap the screen to get your exact latitude and longitude coordinates, the nearest address and intersection, and the closest hospitals, police stations and fuel stations. The 1490T features Garmin Lock™, an anti-theft feature, and is compatible with our free Garmin Garage where you can download custom voices and vehicles. Enhance your travel experience with optional plug-in microSD™ cards

      Comments about Garmin Nuvi 1490T GPS Navigation System:

      Great GPS. I am using it on the Harley as well as in the truck. This unit allows you to build routes yourself on your computer and then download and save the route to the GPS. It also has Bluetooth, but it seems to only work so-so. Several people have commented that it sounds like I am in a well. So, I use my old reliable bluetooth earpiece. The 5" screen is nice. My old eyes can read it better than the smaller units. All in all, its a great unit I'd recommend to anyone.

      Comments about Garmin Nuvi 1490T GPS Navigation System:

      Excellent unit, great screen visibility, nice for passenger to use "on the move", slim configuration. I miss greater detail when driving, even asking it to show most detail still is not enough. Unit freezes up occasionally but I believe it to be a conflict with my portable Sirius satellite radio and/or sunspot activity.
      I like the ability to set up custom info in the 4 group format on the right side of the screen.
