You can download the manual here. Charging instructions are on page 48.
Depending on the package you purchased, you may have a USB cable. If so, connect the cable to your n?vi and your computer USB port. USB hubs may not be capable of charging the unit.
If you do not have a USB cable, and are not able to charge the n?vi in your car, the fuse in your car vehicle adapter may be bad. You can unscrew the black round end piece from the adapter. This will be on the end that goes into the lighter/power socket. Be careful not to loose the silver cap. The fuse is spring loaded and may pop out. The proper replacement fuse type is indicated on the side of the vehicle adapter.
Garmin also offers an optional AC adapter that can be used without a computer.

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.

Base camp unlock code not working


If you are having the correct unlock code and it does not seem to work on your garmin nuvi 1490T, then it means you have entered it more that 3 times and it is not receiving the unlock code. I will advice you reset the nuvi first before you enter the unlock code once again. To reset your garmin nuvi 1490T, ensure the battery is properly charged, then you press and hold the power on/off button for about 15 seconds, then the nuvi will restart and you enter the correct unlock code, then it will accept it.
If that does not solve the problem, then you need to connect your device to the computer, then you back up your softwares and files, then you format the device and restore the software and maps back on.
That should solve the problem for you.

My nuvi 1490t came with a short USB cable. When I plug it into my computer the GPS screen shows the mass storage icon anfd the batterydoes not seem to be charging/


When you plug it into your computer the satnav is meant to go into the mass storage mode. It should charge but it charges at only half the speed it would with a charger (i.e. it takes approx 8 hours to charge.)

I brought a new Garmin nuvi 1490T recently from Staple. The only problem is the GPS would not be charged when I use in my car. (the cigarrete lighter is in good condition). I tried to use another new cable...


The cigarette lighter adapter has a fuse in it, Carefully unscrew the Silver tip of plug, Carefully its spring loaded... and check the fuse..

Did you buy your unit with a credit card? If so you could possibly get a receipt,

Did you Register your unit with Garmin? If so they would have some kind of record when you brought it.

Brand new Garmin Nuvi 1490 T out of the box. How do I charge it? The only devices in box were a car charger (my commute is 5 minutes daily) and a USB connector? Should I just plug the USB into my computer?...


Garmin satnavs come with a charge out of the box.
In some cases your device may have lost a charge during shelf life. In this case you can charge these units in three ways:
  1. Place unit on computer with USB cable for approximately 8-12 hours
  2. Place unit on Garmin specified AC adaptor for approximately 4-6 hours
  3. Place unit on 12V vehicle adaptor for approximately 4-6 hours.
Some cars continue to supply power to the cigarette lighter socket when turned off and others don't. If yours doesn't you can charge it from your computer. There's no indicator to show that it's charging or when it's charged. However when you disconnect the satnav from the computer and turn it on there's a battery state indicator which shows if it's fully charged or not.
