5.0 out of 5 stars Garmin 1490LMT Jan. 23 2011
Verified Purchase
Received the item, placed it on my dash and plugged it in. Instant connection to all the applcations and used it immediately. The 1490 is tremendous, it tells you everything you need to know when travelling around. I plan to use extensively when we head to L.A. in a month or so. Can't wait. I would recommend this Garmin to anyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Feb. 8 2014
Verified Purchase
Bought this a couple of years ago now and am still very happy with it. Although the traffic feature is not active in our city, it did kick in and work perfectly while traveling thru larger cities. It accurately notified us of traffic issues and provided alternate routes. I also have had no issues with the yearly lifetime map updates despite needing to load new software for the latest updates. Even though I now have GPS and maps on my phone it does not come close to the features and ease of use of the Garmin when traveling.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fairly good product overall April 4 2013
By Ivy Luu
Verified Purchase
My only complaint is the delayed response time when i'm keying in addresses for example to search a location. It seems to take a few seconds to register the information and appears like it is frozen or not responding right away. So I have to pause sometimes to wait for it to register the information i'm keying in. Outside of that, i would still recommend the product. I love the large screen and the display and am still happy with the product overall.

2.0 out of 5 stars NOT RECOMMENDED
It has proven to be of limited usefulness since purchased due to many reasons.

I suspect that Garmin relies on a central database for maps, attractions, etc. etc. Read more
