Summary: This is an excellent device; its response time, the sound quality, and the images are really good. I have used it only for a few weeks and so cannot speak about its longevity. Apart from the device as a GPS product, the seller had advertised it as NEW; however, the package that arrived clearly stated that the devise was Refurbished--both outside the package and inside.
Great GPS, good image on screen, many extra offerings

Summary: Very nice GPS. Ultra thin, great visability. Also picks up satellites faster than any I have ever used. I have never had traffic capability before, but this unit does a great job of keeping me informed about traffic around Philadelphia. I am completely satisfied with this device!
Summary: Hands down the best gps out there. My whole family loves it. You can download new voices, apps, driving icons, etc. Does everything except wash the car, but it will direct you to the nearest one. LOVE IT!!!!!!!
Summary: When it comes to navigation, I prefer a stand alone unit versus a smartphone. I wanted the best for the money. This choice was easy. I was a Tom Tom guy for many years. Never disliked them, but wanted something sleeker and with better graphics. This Garmin is great. There are some inaccuracies in maps, but I presume this will be fixed over time with updates. Advantage Tom Tom with that. For other things there is no comparison.
Summary: The 3490LMT is one of the thinnest units Garmin has ever made and is apparently the last thin 4.3" automotive Garmin that has been released. Yes, it's a fairly old unit that was released in 2011, but here's why I love it. 1) This unit comes with the latest Garmin Guidance 3.0 software so you still get all the functionality of the latest user interface and it comes with access to top of the line HD traffic.
Summary: A significant upgrade from my previous GPS. Terrific features. Very clear and crisp display, particularly at night, and sound is much better, more distinct. Search functions operate a little differently from my old GPS but well worth learning. Traffic alerts have been spot on and very helpful. A great purchase, very pleased overall.
