Stay away from this one...and maybe Garmin

Hazelnus, Amazon

  • Summary: Bought this for the voice commands and bluetooth and it has been very good. It is very finicky about power so while I was able to run my older Garmin on a splitter off the DC port in the car, this one flaked out.

Big disappointment

Adam, Amazon
22 May 2012
  • Summary: Pros: great interface, slick design Cons: -Can't play MP3s like previous high end models Detour option is pretty much non existent.

  • Summary: Be careful not to put any stress (traveling/packing) on the screen...became useless (black screen)...or buy a strong case. Touch screen, but It's not like your or as tough as your phone. Otherwise ok. Expensive lesson.

  • Summary: The plug assembly loosed up 3 months into owning the device, and even using a USB cable, it has to be held still to charge it. Was not worth the money to have this aggravation.

Great specs, but a poor performance.

  • Summary: The Nuvi 3490 LMT is a mixed bag - when it works it is wonderful, crystal clear high resolution screen. Very nice. Also the tough screen user interface has a couple of excellent features: one touch sound muting, and one touch "stop". Now for the bad. The unit is totally, completely unreliable.

HORRIBLE SUPPORT BACKLOG

D. Morgan, Amazon
27 February 2012
  • Summary: You would think that tech support for the top of the line devices would get priority treatment. Not at Garmin; they apparently feel that 30-35 minute wait times for support are acceptable.

Digital 3D Traffic doesn't work properly

Mark Denne, Amazon
22 February 2012
  • Summary: I live in LA. So for obvious reasons, high quality and up-to-date real-time traffic information is important to me. I purchased this unit to replace a Garmin 3790, which had proved disappointing. The 3790 uses Garmin's "3D Traffic" service which receives traffic data over standard FM radio.

disappointing GPS upgrade from Garmin

sleeplessnights, Amazon
17 February 2012
  • Summary: This is not going to be a lengthy review. I have owned a Garmin since 2007 and was excited to upgrade to the 3490LMT. I received it, tried it for a day and packed it up to ship back to Amazon.

Worked for a while.

  • Summary: Couldn't wait to get my new top of the line GPS. Having used Garmin GPS devices for many years, I was ready to be impressed. After registering, upgrading, and moving my favorites over to it, i mounted it in my truck and was ready to roll.
