  • Summary: everytime I fly to a new city and power on the unit it cannot acquire satellites even with a clear view of the sky. this makes the device useless for trying to navigate from the destination airport to my hotel.

  • Summary: 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.

Another piece of junk from China

  • Excerpt: Conveniently just beyond 1 year warranty (of light use), Route feature becomes useless. Scroll down to see direction, and unit will shut itself off. Unit also make a humming sound when power is on from the speaker. Software update from Garmin accomplished nothing.
  • Pros: Good until it breaks down
  • Cons: Bad hardware and software.

  • Summary: looks like I got the bad refurbished one. I can't connect to my PC. I tried 4 different PCs. One time I was able to connected and when I did, Garmin updater tells me this device doesn't come with Lifetime Maps update and it asks me if I want to buy the update.

  • Summary: This is a refurbished unit, but I expect it to be as-advertised and in new condition. I opened it, turned it on, and there was a bright green dead pixel smack dab in the middle of the screen. I was about to send it back, but decided to stick with it and give it a shot.
