Manual Garmin Nuvi 1490t

As a bluetooth headset for my new car was far too expensive and my current navigation system was getting outdated, I decided to buy a new GPS with an integrated bluetooth hands-free set.

Multiple GPS navigators have an integrated bluetooth handsfree set. The Garmin Nuvi 1490T stands out by

  • its large 5″ screen
  • free FM traffic updates
