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.

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. As with previous models, it is always outdated.
The interface is not very intuitive.
Updating maps is not free for a lifetime. Updating software has resulted in maps for Ontario, Canada, being locked and inaccessible

It is is so slow to indicate directions that they are not displayed until after making a turn. An earlier model was faster and more accurate.

There has to be a fully functional and reliable GPS system available somewhere!!.

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.

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.

I wish the speaker was in the front. I mean common, why do I have to strain to hear it bounce off the back somewhere. Also would be great if it had volume control on the side or something. So you wouldn't have to exit your screen to go into settings to change it. Common people, it's not brain surgery.

Works like a charm. Could use some refining for the Geocaches (they used to show up as treasure chests now, they look like any other custom waypoints which is very disappointing - hope Garmin can correct that). Otherwise, very good unit, works fast, and very accurate.
