Navigate by Touch or Voice

Keep both hands on the wheel with its innovative voice-activated navigation. Wake it up and choose menu options with spoken commands. When stopped, you can still control the nüvi using its 4.3" (10.92 cm) glass touchscreen.

Quickly look up addresses and services with Garmin Guidance 3.0. You'll get to your destination with voice-prompted, turn-by-turn directions that include street names. It comes preloaded with maps that feature 3-D landmarks and terrain for North America, as well as more than 8 million points of interest (POIs) with the ability to add your own.

Avoid Traffic Tie-ups

With HD Digital Traffic (our most extensive traffic service), you'll get lifetime traffic updates as often as every 30 seconds over the HD Radio™ system, so you can easily reroute around congestion and arrive on time.

Free Lifetime Map Updates

With free lifetime map updates, you always have the most up-to-date maps, POIs and navigation information available at your fingertips. Map updates are available for download with no subscription or update fees and no expiration dates.

Know the Lane Before It’s Too Late

Don't guess which lane you need to be in to make an upcoming turn. Available in select metropolitan areas, photoReal™ junction view makes unfamiliar intersections and exits easy to navigate. When approaching an exit or interchange, nüvi 3490LMT enters split screen mode to show a realistic depiction of junctions on your route, complete with road signs and arrows to indicate the proper lane for navigation. Bird’s Eye junction view gives you a top-down look at upcoming interchanges.
