Not sure how your unit works but I would look at what you have it set at traveling by Auto.... Bicycle or Off Road

Tools ... Settings... System... look at Usage Mode make sure it is set to Automobile if traveling by car

How do i set up my garmin nuvi 1490T udates on a different computer


I assume that since you've successfully updated your GPS previously (from your question), you must have a Garmin account, registered your unit and Garmin Express installed.

With GE installed on your new computer, you should have no difficulty continuing to update your nuvi.

HOW DO YOU CONTINUE ON A SAVED ROUTE AFTER YOU HAVE MADE THE FIRST STOP? I WENT BACK TO THE ROUTE AND STARTED IT AGAIN BUT WHEN I PROCEEDED, IT JUST TOOK ME IN A CIRCLE BACK TO WHERE I JUST WAS. ALSO,...


When you reach the first stop on a saved route the satnav should automatically set the next stop as it's destination. If it doesn't it's possible that the spot you saved as your first stop was not exactly right i.e. you didn't drive to where it's marked on the satnav. If this is the case you need to mark the spot by driving to it and pressing the car (which shows your location on the satnav) and this gives you an option to save present location. Save it and use it instead of the one you entered by address. Then when you're setting your route you'll find it in your favourites and add it from there.

To get back to the map go back to the screen which shows WHERE TO and VIEW MAP. Press VIEW MAP and it will bring you back to your map and should continue with your route.

I HAVE GARMIN NUVI 1390 LMT I WANT TO KNOW HOW CAN I GET DIRECTION. SUPPOSE IT SHOWS ANY WAY AND IF I WANT TO CHANGE THE ROAD , WHAT I HAVE TO DO?


Press "WHERE TO" and select either "address", if you want to enter an address to go to or select "Favourites" if you want to go to somewhere you've stored there. If you want to choose an alternative route just start to drive the preferred route and it will change automatically to select the new direction.

If you want more information on how to use your satnav you can get an instruction manual from http://static.garmincdn.com/pumac/nuvi_1100_1200_1300_1400_OM.pdf

Hi I recently bought the Garmin 1490T GPS and have never used a GPS before. I was able to start up the GPS and connect the charger in the car and enter the home address. However I am a bit lost on how to...


Refer to Page 8 of your owner's manual:
On the main screen, touch "Where to?", then enter the state, city and address at the next screen. Once you've entered the information, touch the address and your unit will probably ask "Navigate to there?" and confirm... and off you go. You can save addresses to your Favorites list as well.

I have a Garmin Nuvi 205W and have saved a number of places as favourites. However, when I want to share the location with friends by giving them the map coordinates of these places I cannot find how to...


To view the coordinates of a saved location on your nuvi

  1. Touch Tools (wrench icon)
  2. Touch Settings
  3. Touch System
  4. Turn ON the GPS Simulator
  5. Touch OK
  6. Hold Back to return to the main menu
  7. Touch Where To?
  8. Touch Favorites
  9. Select a favorite location
  10. Touch Show Map
  11. Touch Set Location
  12. Hold Back to return to the main menu
  13. Touch Tools1
  14. Select Where Am I
Here you will see the coordinates for the saved location.
1. For nuvi 200 series units that do not have the Where Am I feature, skip the above steps 13-14. The coordinates can be found by pressing the vehicle icon on the View Map page.
