  • Summary: helps me to get to places i have not been with less stress and confusion than by using printed maps and directions. saves gas by knowing more direct routes and about traffic. it's advice is generally but not 100% accurate. i wouldn't drive on a long trip without this or a similar Garmin device.

  • Summary: The resolution should be HD but then Garmin and anyone selling them would charge an arm and a leg, no games like my older model, very easy to use and good price!

  • Summary: I'm impressed with the bells and whistles but had an unfortunate experience the first time I used it. The verbal instructions directed me to an incorrect location 3 times. I knew the general vicinity but used GPS because it was rush hour and I wanted to signal my turn.

  • Summary: Had a Megellan for years that I was pleased with. It came time for another gps, wanted to go with something else and choose this Garman. I researched it to death almost and decided on this on because it does everything I had hoped for and came at a good price.

  • Summary: 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 The maps seemed to be mostly accurate but the points of interest were, at times, outdated.

Great GPS but lacking in a few features

  • Summary: I bought this GPS for my wife as a birthday gift since she is prone to getting lost so often. It works great and picks up directions very quickly. I looked at the Garmin 90 series because of the bluetooth feature. The bluetooth is pretty good but not great.

  • Summary: The product is excellent! The unit is not as fancy as the latest model but it serves the purpose with its bluetooth makes easier to get calls from mobile phones. The 5 inch screen is perfect for me (am not 20-20).

Garmin 1490LMT is a very good GPS choice

kdegler, Ebay
7 July 2012
  • Summary: I purchased this unit as a replacement for Garmin's 765 model, which worked well until the connector for the power cord detached from the unit. I was happy to see the 1490LMT has a standard mini USB connector port that shouldn't break (as least as easily).
