Thanks to Garmin Guidance 3.0, FREE lifetime traffic¹ updates, advanced lane guidance and much more, nüvi 3490LT provides the most comprehensive navigation capabilities available. And at just 9 mm, it’s also our thinnest navigator yet.
Navigate by Touch or by Voice
With its innovative voice-activated navigation, you can control nüvi 3490LT with your voice — allowing you to keep both hands on the wheel. Simply wake up nüvi with a customizable voice command and begin speaking menu options that are clearly displayed on the screen. When you’re stopped, you can still control the nüvi using its 4.3" (10.92 cm) glass touchscreen.
Garmin Guidance 3.0 allows you to quickly look up addresses and services and be guided to your destination with voice-prompted, turn-by-turn directions that speak street names. It comes preloaded with maps that feature 3-D landmarks and terrain for North America. It also comes preloaded with more than 8 million points of interest (POIs) and offers the ability to add your own.
Avoid Traffic Tie-ups
With FREE lifetime traffic updates from Digital 3D Traffic, our most extensive traffic avoidance system, nüvi 3490LT can help you avoid delays. Digital 3D Traffic provides updates every 30 seconds over the HD Radio system, so you can easily reroute around congestion and arrive on time.
Know the Lane Before It’s Too Late
Now there’s no more guessing 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 you approach an exit or interchange, nüvi 3490LT will enter split screen mode and show you a realistic depiction of junctions on your route, complete with road signs and arrows that indicate the proper lane for navigation. Bird's Eye junction view also is included for a top-down look at upcoming interchanges.
Go Beyond Navigation
Point-to-point navigation is just the beginning. nüvi 3490LT features a microSD™ card slot so you can store and use detailed cityXplorer™ maps or download custom voices and vehicles for free from the Garmin Garage™. It also comes with a powered mount that charges while you drive while dual-orientation functionality lets you hold nüvi vertically or horizontally for added convenience driving or walking. And for added convenience and safety, built-in Bluetooth® connectivity lets you make and take hands-free calls and texts.
nüvi 3490LT’s “Where Am I?” emergency locator provides your exact latitude and longitude coordinates, the nearest address and intersection, and the closest hospitals, police stations and more. And Enhanced Exit Services tells you what services you’re approaching on the highway.
