  • Summary: I am still learning how this unit works and how to use all of it's numerious features. Walmarts price is one of the lowest I could find for a new in the box unit and I have been pleased buying from them on line before. I could not find this unit listed in the 2013 line of Garmin models. This may be a close out price and was excellent compared to the original MSRP. A few local stores are selling it at a discount price of $349.00, $100 more than I payed.

  • Summary: I have had this Garmin since Dec. 24, 2012. It is a great improvement in voice activated navigation - when it works. Issues so far ( freeze problems; directing me to take Off Ramp then go right back on ON Ramp; inoperative on/off function), required Garmin (I had to contact them already) to suggest a 'Master Reset' be done then a software update ( after 3 weeks?) So far it's too soon to say if the 'fix' has worked long term - 2 days - so far so good.

Extravagant handheld GPS with some quirks

Zac, Amazon
29 April 2012
  • Summary: In short: I think the Nuvi 3490LMT is a fairly good, though extravagant (and so priced) product. While it has some advantages over my prior GPS solution, it also has some significant quirks and oddities. I would probably rate it about 7 of 10; I don't think it deserves 4 stars, and while it seems better than three, I decided it is probably better to round down.

Disappointing compared to the 885T

Ace of Baseness "Acebass", Amazon
20 March 2012
  • Summary: I bought this to replace my Garmin 885T, expecting it to be SOMEWHAT similar. NO WAY! It won't copy my phone book, so making phone calls is impossible. The voice recognition is worse - fewer words recognized. It performs fewer tasks by voice command, so it's more distracting to use. The touted HD traffic is just as useless as the MSN traffic was - I end up sitting in traffic when the Garmin says the route is clear. Duh!!! It's also very slow to respond to my touch.

Misgivings

Driver Dude, Amazon
7 March 2012
  • Summary: This GPS has lots of nice features, and I'll stick with it because of those features, and the high cost of the unit. That said, the 3490 LMT has lots of software bugs, making it unreliable. I don't feel I can depend on it, and I now carry a little Nuvi 1250 in my bag as a back-up. The good: It's thin and lightweight, and it connects and disconnects easily from the charger. The touch screen is excellent, and the display is bright, sharp, and clear.

  • Pros: Huge improvement over the Garmin 885T. Easy-to-use interface. Good call quality with Bluetooth.
  • Cons: Traffic only available in some areas. Bluetooth connection does not access phone address book.

I prefer the 2595LMT over this Garmin

Jim "Just Jim", Amazon
4 January 2012
  • Summary: Pro: I love the powered cradle. Cons: Running side-by-side with both the 2595 and 3490 powered by their cables, the 3490 is noticeably dimmer at full brightness than the 2595. Visibility in sunlight is no better than the 2595. (Assuming that you've made the effort to adjust the view angle to give the most visible display on both.) Blacks out with polarized sunglasses.
