The Nuvi 1490LMT is a portable global positioning system receiver from Garmin that offers a step-up from the company's 1490T model. Featuring free lifetime map updates, this model can be updated four times annually to ensure that the latest locational information including new businesses, streets and buildings is included. A built-in FM transmitter provides free lifetime traffic updates, warning users of upcoming accidents, construction or other road blockage issues. The 5-inch backlit color touchscreen provides clear and vivid imagery, with interactive turn-by-turn "City Navigator" navigation throughout North America and Mexico. "Lane Assist" technology removes guess-work from directional prompts, providing users with a virtual first-person view of the street or freeway in front of them while implementing an arrowed illustration for accurate lane changing. On-board Bluetooth connectivity supports hands-free wireless call integration, increasing safety while preventing the need for a dedicated unit for convenience. Two and three-dimensional map interfaces are available, with shaded contours for simulated elevation levels on the latter. "HotFix" predictive satellite technology helps to provide users with the most accurate information on current location, with steady and accurate support even when vehicles enter underground tunnels or drive under bridges. "EcoRoute" mode helps to determine routes that are the most fuel-efficient, with up-to-the-minute fuel usage readings available in addition to live detour routing.
