The large screen nüvi 1490T comes with FREE lifetime traffic and offers multiple-point routing and lane assist with Real View Advanced Lane Guidance to help you manage busy highway interchanges.
Includes Lifetime Traffic
A combination power cable/traffic receiver in the box gives you traffic services for the life¹ of your device. You’ll avoid traffic jams and keep moving when your nüvi alerts you and offers detours. No additional purchases are necessary — it’s 100% subscription-free traffic.
Know the Lane Before It’s Too Late
No more guessing which lane you need to be in to make an upcoming turn. Lane assist with Real View Advanced Lane Guidance guides you to the correct lane for an approaching turn or exit, making unfamiliar intersections and exits easy to navigate. It realistically displays road signs and junctions on your route along with arrows that indicate the proper lane for navigation. Lane assist with Real View Advanced Lane Guidance is available in select metropolitan cities.
nüvi 1490T has an intuitive interface that greets you with 2 simple questions: “Where To?” and “View Map.” Touch the colour screen to easily look up addresses and services and get voice-prompted, turn-by-turn directions that speak street names to your destination. It comes preloaded with detailed City Navigator® Australia and New Zealand street maps, over 600,000 points of interest (POIs), 2-D or 3-D maps and the speed limit for most major roads in the Australia and New Zealand. With HotFix® satellite prediction, nüvi calculates your position faster to get you there quicker.
Go Beyond Navigation
Also offered on nüvi 1490T are standard nüvi features that go beyond navigation:
enhanced pedestrian navigation capabilities — pairs great with optional cityXplorer™ maps to navigate big cities
ecoRoute™ — a green feature that calculates a more fuel-efficient route and tracks fuel usage
travel tools — JPEG picture viewer, world travel clock with time zones, currency converter, measurement converter and calculator
“Where Am I?” emergency locator — get your exact latitude and longitude coordinates, the nearest address and intersection, and the closest hospitals, police stations, and fuel stations
hands-free calling capability using Bluetooth® wireless technology
¹Lifetime traffic updates may not be transferred to another person or another Garmin product. Lifetime traffic extends for the useful life of your Garmin traffic receiver (as long as you own a
compatible Garmin GPS) or as long as Garmin receives traffic data from its traffic supplier, whichever is shorter. A traffic receiver’s “useful life” means the period during which the receiver (a) has the required technical capabilities to utilize current traffic data service and (b) is capable of operating as intended without major repairs.
