Performance

I like the large screen; I can see better without having to use my reading glasses. It is not just the screen size; the screen resolution is also higher than the resolution on older GPS units. The 2595 is very fast, so you get plenty of warnings on the correct lane, turns, and exits. It synced with my Apple Iphone with no hassle. I can make and receive phone calls hands free with voice commands. Voice commands with the phone work very well. Voice commands with other features, such as entering addresses or company names only works about half the time. That technology still leaves a lot to be desired. This will be my first GPS with the lifetime map upgrades; should save money over the long term. Overall, I am very happy with the Garmin Nuvi 2595. If you do a lot of long distance driving and need the Bluetooth sync capability with your cell phone, I highly recommend it.

The ultra-thin navigator also includes route planning, lane assist with junction view, and ecoRoute to calculate a more fuel-efficient route. See Even More It's easy to see where you're going on the Refurbished Nuvi 1490 LMT's 5-inch touchscreen display. View map detail, driving directions, photos and more in bright, brilliant color. With its large screen, you'll always get the big picture.

Take It With You Twenty-five percent slimmer than other Nuvis, you can take the ultra-thin Refurbished 1490 LMT anywhere. It easily fits in your pocket or purse, and its rechargeable lithium-ion battery makes it convenient for navigation by car or foot.

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.

Plan Ahead The Refurbished Nuvi 1490 LMT includes advanced navigation features to take the worry out of traveling. With route planning you can save 10 routes, specify via points and preview simulated turns on the Refurbished 1490 LMT's large screen. In addition, Refurbished Nuvi 1490 LMT automatically sorts multiple destinations to provide an efficient route for errands, deliveries or sales calls. A trip log provides an electronic bread crumb trail of up to 10,000 points, so you can see where you've been on the map.

Get Turn-by-Turn Directions The Refurbished Nuvi 1490 LMT's intuitive interface greets you with two 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 for North America, nearly 6 million points of interest (POIs), 2-D or 3-D maps and the speed limit for most major roads. Its digital elevation maps show you shaded contours at higher zoom levels, giving you a big picture of the surrounding terrain. With the Refurbished 1490 LMT's enhanced user interface, you can slide your finger to conveniently scroll between screens. You can also upload custom points of interest (POIs). And with HotFix satellite prediction, Nuvi calculates your position faster to get you there quicker.

Make Hands-free Calls For hands-free calling, the Refurbished Nuvi 1490 LMT integrates Bluetooth wireless technology with a built-in microphone and speaker. Just pair it with your compatible Bluetooth phone and talk hands-free through the Refurbished 1490 LMT while staying focused on the road.

Receive alerts about traffic delays and road construction that lie ahead on your route. Next, simply touch Nuvi's screen to view traffic details or detour around the problem area.

Go Beyond Navigation Navigation is just the beginning. The Refurbished Nuvi 1490 LMT saves you gas and money with ecoRoute — a green feature that calculates the most fuel-efficient route, tracks fuel usage and more. The Refurbished 1490 LMT includes many travel tools including JPEG picture viewer, world travel clock with time zones, currency converter, measurement converter, calculator and more. With photo navigation, you can download pictures from Garmin Connect Photos and navigate to them. It's also compatible with MSN Direct (receiver purchase and subscription required). With its "Where Am I?" emergency locator, you always know your location. Simply tap the screen to get your exact latitude and longitude coordinates, the nearest address and intersection, and the closest hospitals, police stations and fuel stations. The Refurbished 1490 LMT features Garmin Lock, an anti-theft feature, and is compatible with our free Garmin Garage where you can download custom voices and vehicles. Enhance your travel experience with optional plug-in microSD cards (sold separately).

Navigate City Transit With its enhanced pedestrian navigation capabilities, the Refurbished Nuvi 1490 LMT is the perfect travel companion for getting around town. Download optional CityXplorer content to help you navigate city public transit. Know where to walk, where to catch the bus, subway, tram or other transportation and how long it will take to get there. CityXplorer maps may be purchased for select cities throughout North America.
