I have got my garmin 1490 T from US.Iam living in Middleeast...I have updated the map & now when I start the unit it says...Locating satellite...Acquring sattellite...

Because the unit is a Region 1 unit (US/Canada/Mexico); it is set to locate itself through the GPS system over the Western Hemisphere only, I'm afraid.

Your unit may not work for any middle eastern country. You should purchase one for that region from that region preferably.

Sorry and I hope this helped.

While traveling to Nova Scotia last week, my Garmin Street Pilot c530 was telling that i was on an unpaved road, but i was on route 2 in New brunswick Canada

Don't believe everything you see on a GPS. Garmin does not update their maps as they should; I found this even after I purchased their map update. I drove 48 states in a big rig, over many new roads not found or shown on the Garmin maps. My streetpilot usually went into a hiccup mode, recalculating -- recalculating -- recalculating. All the while, it tried to get me to detour on whatever spurious local roads happened to show up along the way.

Most GPS units get time from the GPS, and add an offset for your timezone.

If you are in the Eastern Daylight Savings zone, (Toronto, Florida, Buffalo etc), the offset should be -4.0. After the time change, in November, it would become -5.0.

If you are in Newfoundland, Canada, your offset should include an extra half hour.

LG LN740 maps way out of date. Can't find any upgrades/updates any where.

Contact LG directly. I live in Canada and called LG Canada who advised me that they had a few 2008 map updates in stock. For some reason neither they nor Navteq advertises the availability. This is not good customer service.
