Product Description

Product Description

A Premium Sat Nav Full of Features Including Lifetime Traffic Alerts

Nuvi 3490LT is part of Garmin’s flagship collection of premium navigators. With a stunning ultra-sleek design it is less than 9mm thin, making it the slimmest navigator in the world with dual-orientation 4.3” touchscreen display. It is one of our first Live Ready sat navs and is equipped with Garmin’s new lightning-fast Guidance 3 navigation engine making it swift to operate, quick to calculate and reliable to navigate. Other premium Garmin features inside include 3D traffic, our unique Cyclops speed cameras and Bluetooth hands-free calling.

Packed with Premium Navigation Features

Bird’s Eye junction view makes complex junctions easy

Powered by Guidance 3

The Guidance 3 premium navigation engine offers significant benefits including notably faster route calculations so you can get going much quicker. It provides a faster, more intuitive user interface as well as more accurate searches.

It also includes Garmin’s innovative Bird’s Eye junction view which gives an overhead perspective of the correct lane to be in when approaching complex junctions. This is particularly useful in areas that require multiple manoeuvres.

Other useful features include Automatic Orientation whereby Nuvi will adjust the display depending on whether it is in portrait or landscape position and the ability to ‘pinch and zoom’. Guidance 3 also offers 3D terrain, buildings and landmarks to show a realistic image of the road ahead.

Nuvi 3490LT is also ‘Live Ready’ - via Garmin Smartphone Link -  an Android app which provides live services to the sat nav. Smartphone Link creates a seamless navigation experience between the Nuvi and your Android mobile phone to communicate and share data. Among other functionalities, this lets you add live services to your sat nav such as 3D Traffic Live which provides real-time information to help you navigate in and around traffic problems. 3D Traffic Live updates every two minutes with 2000 messages including details of traffic incidents, road conditions and delays. There is 99% coverage of traffic flow data on all major motorways as well as A and B roads making it. 3D Traffic Live gives you the best all-round view of the traffic situation at any given moment - it is fast, reliable and accurate.

You can see traffic for yourself with PhotoLive traffic cameras

Your understanding of the traffic conditions is further enhanced by PhotoLive traffic cameras, available via Smartphone Link, which can be called up on demand for a real-time view of your route from the traffic cameras.

Smartphone Link also enhances Garmin’s standard safety camera alerts with Speedwatch data, which provides real-time updates for fixed, temporary and average speed cameras, mobile zones and red light cameras together with “crowd-sourced” mobile speed traps reported by Speedwatch customers.

Delivering content via your smartphone’s mobile data plan, Smartphone Link also provides live weather, parking and fuel prices.

Avoid Traffic Tie-Ups

To keep drivers moving, the Nuvi 3490LT includes subscription-free 3D traffic for the lifetime of the product.

Delivered via traditional RDS-TMC, the service combines trafficTrends™ historic route data together with information on the current traffic situation to identify congestion and incidents on your planned journey. An astonishing 80 million sources are used to understand what’s happening on the roads, with comprehensive coverage of motorways and A roads across the UK and Europe. If there are queues, you’ll be offered an alternative route to avoid any delay.

Add our 3D Live Traffic via Smartphone Link for more detailed and extended traffic coverage updated every two minutes.

You know exactly where and how long traffic jams are

FREE lifetime traffic updates may not be transferred to another person or another Garmin product. Lifetime traffic extends for the useful life of your Garmin traffic receiver (as long as you own a compatible Garmin GPS) or as long as Garmin receives traffic data from its traffic supplier, whichever is shorter. Traffic content not available for all areas. See www.garmin.co.uk/traffic

Hands-Free for Safer Driving

Nuvi 3490LT comes with Garmin’s innovative voice-activated navigation so you can choose how you want to control it. Simply wake up the sat nav using your customised voice command and speak the menu options on the screen for totally touch-free navigation.

With built-in Bluetooth wireless technology, you can sync with your compatible mobile phone for hands-free phone calling and even access your phone book and call history via the sat nav - no need to look at, touch or even find your phone. Garmin’s SafeTexting even speaks your text messages, eliminating another risk of distraction.

Know the Lane Before It's Too Late

Avoid confusion at tricky exits and junctions. Nuvi 3490LT’s Lane Assist with PhotoReal Junction View shows the lane you need to be in at upcoming major junctions and exits with incredible detail of your surroundings right down to the trees, bridges and pylons. From a mile before the junction, the sat nav enters split screen mode to show your position on the map alongside a realistic depiction of your upcoming manoeuvre, with accurately reproduced road signs for confident navigation and reassurance you’re on track.

Go Beyond Navigation

Keep an Eye on the Latest Speed Cameras

Garmin Nuvi sat navs contain our unique Cyclops speed camera system, for real-time, direction-relevant and accurate alerts.

To enhance your built-in speed cameras upgrade the service via Smartphone Link

Find Fuel-Efficient Routes

Garmin’s ecoRoute fuel-saver technology finds the most fuel-efficient route to a destination, helping drivers save money while being kinder on the environment. The innovative feature tracks fuel usage and calculates the cost of a journey as well as enabling accurate expense reporting.

Save even more money by knowing where to get the cheapest fuel by upgrading to Smartphone Link. You’ll be able to see fuel prices for yourself, how far away the petrol station is, and be directed there.

Smart Mount System

Nuvi 3490LT is even more convenient to use. It has a “smart” mount, to provide a constant power source and it automatically powers on and off with the vehicle engine. An extra speaker in the mount provides a volume boost if you need it. When the sat nav is removed from the mount, Nuvi automatically marks your parked position and it finds the nearest parking to your location for the ultimate convenience.

    A good product but the cable for use in the car does not fit the product. It's got a macro plug and needs a micro plug. I'm struggling to figure out how to deal with this - there's no obvious way of contacting Amazon to request the correct cable is provided.

    This nuvi is much different from old 350:

    Faster refresh
    Better reception and satellite find
    Easier to enter destinations
    Loads more gizmos
    lane assist - lots of helpful info.
    No compass north pointer (pity)

    In addition,

    Voice commands very useful, though rain/wiper noise deafens it
    Slimline makes easy to carry around
    Petrol and ATM machine icons useful but not many appear in fuel database when you do search.
    Out of date POI (petrol mainly)
    Dartmoor maps poor, confuses tracks with sensible roads
    Traffic Receiver errors - hold-ups applied to opposing side of dual carrageway
    No standard charger or case included - penny pinching at this price
    Village names don't often appear on maps when on main road bypass, though street names do.
    Never seen any buildings on map yet.
    So many gizmos on this, suggested for next model: a weather function where you could optionally 'avoid rain'!

    Received this earlier today and have had it charging for a couple of hours in the car before plugging it into my Mac to register it and continue charging. It won't power up! Spoke with Garmin and after a couple of minutes was told its obviously faulty (wow!) and to return it to Amazon. All credit to Amazon they're arranging for its replacement to be delivered tomorrow so here's hoping its not a faulty batch.........

    On a positive note its well packaged, fantastic size and all the other parts appear to be of top notch build quality!
