Not satisfied with the GPS system you have? It’s time to upgrade to the Garmin nüvi 1490LMT. This is a great GPS system that includes free lifetime map and traffic updates so you will have the most up to date data no matter where you are. When the device is powered on, it constantly updates the traffic information, which is definitely a neat little feature that all GPS units should have. Garmin has promised updates to Map data at least four times a year. This feature is operational right out of the box and there are no subscription charges.

The Garmin nüvi 1490LMT has a 5-inch touchscreen display; I find this size perfect for viewing details of the map clearly and looking at the driving directions without it being too obtrusive in my car. You can also view photos in bright and crisp colors on this display. Navigation is easier than ever before with the lane assist feature. We all know that being in the right lane in an unfamiliar place is often the most distressing thing about driving but this feature has junction view which guides you to the correct lane for approaching turn or exit. Sadly, Lane Assist feature along with Junction view is available only in a few selected metropolitan cities but it still is a great feature that will hopefully be updated to include more cities soon.

City Transit is another useful feature if you plan on walking to your destination or if you are just exploring a new city. You can download an additional content pack called CityXplorer – it tells you which lanes to choose to walk, which bus, subway or tram you should take and how long it will take to reach your destination. CityXplorer pack is available for majority of the cities of North America and Europe. This saves you from having to buy a GPS watch like the Garmin Forerunner 405 to navigate a new place. The nüvi 1490LMT also has special route saving features where you can save up to 10 routes at a time. What makes it even better is that you can change the route and modify it to suit your stops at certain point of interests. The Garmin nüvi 1490LMT is a truly awesome GPS that will change the way you drive. Pick up a special offer on this GPS right here.
