How do I get free maps for my Garmin nuvi 1490t?


The only way you can get free maps is if your unit is a 1490LMT which is Lifetime Maps and Traffic. You would need to register your unit at www.garmin.com. You do have lifetime traffic because you say your unit is a 1490T.

If you don't have a lifetime map subscription, you will have to buy a lifetime map subscription or purchase new maps when they are released. The lifetime map subscription will save you money in the long run.

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

Hi, do you know if I can install City Select maps I bought for a previous Garmin device now out of order, on a new Garmin 1490T preloaded with City Navigator ? thanks


If you want to test the maps on your new Garmin you can do one of two things. Either you can copy the maps onto an SD card and then insert the card into your GPS. You can also connect the GPS to your computer with the USB cable that was supplied with you unit. Using whatever file manager you normally use with your version of Windows (Windows Explorer, Total Commander, etc), you will be able to see your Garmin GPS as another drive on your system. You can then copy your City Select maps over to your Garmin.

Once you have the maps either directly on your Garmin GPS or on a microSD card, you have to choose to use those maps. From the main screen of your GPS choose Tools>Settings>Map. If your City Select maps are compatible with your GPS they will show up in the list of maps. To make use of the map just choose it by touching the name of the map. Your Garmin will then load that map and display it. If your City Select maps do not show up in the list, or if you choose them and they do not load or give you an error then they are not compatible with your 1490T.

If you need anymore information or help please let me know. Thank you.
