Question about Garmin nuvi 1490T GPS Receiver
To register your unit just go to the following website:
To begin the process, connect the smaller end of the USB cable that came with your GPS to the GPS, and the other end to one of the USB ports on your computer. When you get to the website above, you will first have to register yourself. After that there is a small program that the site will ask you to install on your computer. This program allows your GPS to communicate with the Garmin website. Once the installation is complete the site should automatically go to the next step of registering your unit. It should automatically detect what your unit is, and it's serial number. It will then ask you to verify that the information they are showing is correct. As long as it is your unit is now registered. Normally Garmin will give you one free map update as long as you register your unit within 90 days of you purchasing it. The site should now do a quick check on your unit, and then let you know about the one free update, as well as any updates that are necessary for your unit software. That software should then be downloaded and installed to your GPS. Of course if your unit comes with Lifetime Map Updates, of you purchased the same from the retailer you bought your GPS from, you will be able to check back to the site every month or so for new updates.
