Garmin's nuvi 1490TV TMC GPS Sat Nav System has a huge 5" screen for clear navigation, and loads of added features to make driving a stress-free experience. And when you aren't driving, it lets you watch mobile TV!

Using DVB-T technology, the Garmin nuvi 1490TV gives you access to real-time TV broadcasts, as well as radio and images from your own vehicle's camera - if you have one installed. Now, no matter how long the road trip, you don't have to miss out on your favourite shows or lose touch with the latest news broadcasts! Be aware however, that the folks at Garmin have your safety at heart, and the TV-watching function on this GPS is disabled at speeds of more than 12 kph.

In addition to this exciting feature, the Garmin nuvi 1490TV's bold 5" screen helps you on your way with preloaded City Navigator Maps for Europe and a full range of up-to-the-minute navigation features, including Lane Assist with Junction View and voice-assisted turn-by-turn directions. A multiplicity of routing options, nearly 6 million Points of Interest and free lifetime traffic updates keep your travelling interesting and as stress-free as possible. And EcoRoute means you can ask the nuvi 1490TV to plan you the most environmentally friendly way possible!

Don't forget Bluetooth-enabled hands-free calling, photo-based navigating and much more! Mobile TV may be the most prominent feature of the Garmin nuvi 1490TV TMC GPS Sat Nav System, but it is just the beginning!
