Summary: Os the most reliable navigator i ever purchased .and i have pirchased various navigators so I need something to be reliable that to get m.e from Part A to point B and hands down this one is the best
Summary: Overall, a great unit--I like it better than the built-in in my 2012 Camry. Particularly, it tells me specifically when I'm arriving and which side of the road (the built-in in my Camry is a bit vague and doesn't give me the side of the road). Biggest flaw has been the voice synthesis, which sometimes is a little odd--parts of words occasionally run together or pronunciation is off.
The Garmin Nuvi 1490T is the best GPS there is on the market.

Summary: My Wife and I feel this Garmin 1490T is the best GPS we have ever had. It does EVERYTHING, including rerouting you around traffic delays. We are very picky, and the Garmin Nuvi 1490T GPS is simply the best there is.
Summary: We needed a new GPS and this seemed to fit the need quite well. It is easy to use easy to see, has lifetime updates and can be used with the phone for hands free operation. Garmins seem to be more user friendly than some of the other brands.
Summary: Got this as an early Christmas present for my fiance because she just recently bought a new car and kept having to use my nuvi 1100 whenever she was going somewhere that she didn't know where she was. She absolutely loves the big screen, lifetime free map updates and the blue-tooth feature especially because she has a hearing disability. She thinks the traffic update is a nice bonus also.
