Hi I just bought Garmin 1490t and used it few times but couldnt find the option of turning on the lane assist mode. Can you please guide me how to use this function. Thanx Masaood Iqbal


I have the same GPS and the lane assist only works in areas that are available. For example on the NY thruway only the most popular exits show the lane assist. I was a little disappointed when I found this out, but hopefully that will add them on future map updates. Also make sure you register your unit and do all the software and map updates; maybe it may show more lane assist roads. Hope this was some help,Thanks for using FixYa

Triton 400 sometimes street maps move anywhere from 100 ft either way to 1/8 mile away from route and makes it show you are off road or in wrong lane.


This problem is most caused by two possible errors. One the maps were not prepared correctly.

Two your navigation settings are wrong. Please reset the datum to WGS84 and see if this helsp.

How do I set the GPS so it shows me the best route on main roads and not all the side, gravel and dirt roads


Click Tools.....Settings.....Navigation...

I like Faster Time.... you can change it to Shorter Distance or Off Road
depending on your gps

On Avoidances... I have it Enabled

click Avoidances.... I avoid U-Turns.....Traffic...Carpool Lanes...Unpaved Roads

click OK after your choices..

Good idea when you plan a route is to check it by arrowing down your map to make sure its the route you want to travel, if not go back to main page and click detour X to change route then you can save it if you like

My Garmin nuvi does not show rerouting of roads.


a map update "may or may not" fix the problem, because it depends on the date of the map updates and when the construction took place.

you can go HERE and download and install the web updater and follow the instructions.

it will tell you if there is an update for your maps

let me know if you need further help

Took me on a 2 lane route for 100 miles instead of freeway!


These things are miles from perfect. However, if you knew of the freeway route, you should have taken it. Remember, a PND is only useful when you don't know where you are and can often be confusing if you're using it to direct you to place that you know.
