It is estimated that 10–15% of the road network changes every year. There is also inevitably some human error/subjectivity in the creation of a digital map.

All of which means that maps must be constantly maintained to keep the level of map errors as low as possible. Tele Atlas has extensive survey teams constantly out surveying new roads, changed roads, POI positioning and accuracy, map errors, etc.

Each change and fix is then checked before being built into the next map release. GPS vendors predominantly use Tele Atlas maps, then compiles the map vendor release and has it error-checked

This complex and labor-intensive process can mean it is several months before a map vendor’s new release is ready and fit for use in a GPS product.


Due to the high frequency of new map releases, there’s a small chance that a new map is released between the production of a GPS unit and the date that it is sold in retail.

If you've found this information helpful, please give me a big thumbs up when you rate my answer. Thanks!

How do I transfer favorite from one garmin to another ?


you can use a pc and usb cable to save your favorites and then upload them to the other nuvi. You can download "Base Camp" software for free on the Garmin website. The software is quite powerful and can transfer your data for you.

When in truck mode my 465t will not warn of all weight station or low bridge locations. The truck height is set for 13'6", but there is no warning when lower bridge heights are encountered.


Have you tried gong to the Garmin web site an updating the software and the maps? If you have it updated it most likely does not know all the bridges and there heights and the weight station locations. Thanks for using fixya

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

I have bought garmin1390t with lane assistance. I have driven in the cities with many lanes. However lane assist is not showing have I been sold the correct model, HOW CAN i TELL.


The 1390T does come with Lane Assist and should show in the top left of the screen. I am wondering if it only works on highways? I currently have a Nuvi 350 and have just purchased a 1350 for Christmas specifically because of Lane Assist.

Here are the specs on your model and you can contact Garmin from their website.

The ' T ' model gives a Traffic receiver included and traffic updates to the unit for your lifetime use.
