Customer Reviews of Garmin Nuvi 1490LMT 5" GPS Navigation Maps, Traffic, Bluetooth
Garmin is a great product and very easy to use.
gets me to where i want to go
the best price and the best item
I'm new to using a street GPS system, but this is a nice unit. I wish it had an earphone jack and better routing options.
good product for its money8/15/2012
This is a very good product. However, as they show in the picture, I was hoping the boarders to be in grey color, but they were in black color. I was disappointed about that. Other than that it is an excellent product.
Maps not yet "unlocked"7/31/2012
Working with Garmin tech group to resolve this problem. Rated product "in-the-middle" since the other option is a 5 of 5 rating.
This is my second Garmin gps and they have come along way in 4 years. Good size and screen resolution. Love the lifetime maps & lane assist was a welcome suprise. Great price. I have not used the blue tooth since my car already has it.
Garmin Nuvi 1490LMT7/4/2012
It did take some time to update maps. Approx 1.5 hours to download. Bluetooth linked up fine. The GPS reacts quickly when you need to recalculate. Bluetooth Volume is adequate. I would close the windows and turn down the AC to hear the other person better. Response from callers stated they could hear me fin
Thrilled with my purchase7/2/2012
I'm thrilled with my Garmin Nuvi 1490LMT 5" GPS. Best value for money purchase and I have NOT had an issues whatsoever. I can't live without this GPS! It's easy to use GPS, plug into your computer, download the maps and you are ready to go!
5.0 inch screen. lane assist is a real big help. Avoidences is a cool feature. I missed every toll.
Best value for money purchase. Not sure how others are getting problems. The simplest way to handle this is to connect the Garmin to a computer and download all the firmware updates and maps. North American Maps are free for lifetime of the device. With the firmware updates and maps updates installed, the phone gets into another league with its full set of featuers. Overall full value for the money spent.
Not a good one for me!6/14/2012
Wouldn't load detail maps or read from the SD card. Finally got it to work. Touch screen unpredictable and moves by leaps and bounds from east coast to Guatemala. Entering routes is a chore. Does not recognize a street name even though it is right on the map the unit is showing. Routing data display is larger and not in the same location that the screen shots showed for this model. Buy.com a little sneaky on the check out page. Free shipping is only if you check the box! Shouldn't be the default?
NUVI 1490 LMT6/1/2012
easy to use GPS item shipped fast
I bought this to replace my garmin 1490T that was stolen. Very pleased with the new 1490LMT unit.
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.
Excellent GPS device4/3/2012
I am replacing my old 3 inch Navigion GPS to this new Garmin GPS with 5 inches bigger! I have to get used to the new features with this.
I recommend it1/31/2012
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.
