The large screen nüvi 1490LMT comes with free lifetime maps and traffic and offers multiple-point routing and lane assist with junction view to help you manage busy highway interchanges.
Includes Lifetime Map Updates
Right out of the box, the nüvi 1490LMT comes bundled with nüMaps Lifetime™. Which means you can download the newest map data when it becomes available — no monthly fees or maintenance costs — for the lifetime¹ of your device.
Includes Lifetime Traffic
A combination power cable/traffic receiver in the box gives you traffic services for the life² 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 percent 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 junction view 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 junction view is available in select metropolitan cities.
nüvi 1490LMT has an intuitive interface that greets you with 2 simple questions: “Where To?” and “View Map.” Touch the color 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® NT street maps, nearly 6 million points of interest (POIs), 2-D or 3-D maps and the speed limit for most major roads in the U.S. and Europe. And with HotFix® satellite prediction, nüvi calculates your position faster to get you there quicker.
