Question about Garmin nuvi 1490T GPS Receiver
Hello my garmin 1490T quite new shuts down from time to time and then restarts automatically and goes on navigating : what's happening ? is it a problem with the battery ? is it a bug ?
I just bought one at Best Buy and within three hours it has already shut down and restarted one time. Apparently Garmin Company is not what it used to be! Hopefully they will get the bugs out of this new one somewhere in the future...I hope. I would try the reset thing and cross your fingers that it helps.. Turn off and hold the off/on switch down for at least ten seconds. These units appear to be full of bugs at this time.

I just got one and on mine the serial # is on the bottom of the 1490t just below the Garmin Nuvi logo on the front of the device. The serial # is the string of numbers just below in the Made in Taiwan on the white side of the sticker.

Try reseting the unit if it still freezes 9 times out of 10 you got to replace the battery in the unit as these do have certain life span in them replacing the battery will work on most of these issues.
Do not shoot the helper press the ACCEPT button and get a new battery you be glad you did.

To reset your unit power it off, place your thumb on the bottom right corner of the unit and then power it on still holding the bottom right corner. you will receive a message " Do you want to erase all user data?" select yes to reset the unit.
Hope this helps!
