I was not aware that Garmin had lifted that restriction So, the main thing MsVees needs to check is that maps have been updated within the past 24 months. Third party content providers may change. Since the seller CLAIMS he received the as a gift and he barely usedit , he is not the first owner and it may have been registered to the original owner. Hopefully that ” version” that was stated in the original post doesn’t indicate the map version because that would make it at least 3 years since the last update. I believe you’re thinking of the alanb.

Garmin Nuvi – GPS Review Forums

I had a and it only included the “Lower 48” map. I tried to update maps and could not because it was too old.

Although out of production now, it is still sought after as shown by how they sell on ebay. Why in the world would they put a crippled version in there that only connected with some devices and not others?!? The lifetime update will not allow you to add this additional coverage, so you are stuck with what it has.

I was gqrmin aware that Garmin had lifted that restriction I would like gamin know if there are any unforseen problems with this device? I don’t think this model has bluetooth capability however. The did have gqrmin advantage of one of the first units with a 5″ screen, but I always considered the to be a disappointment for Garmin’s top-of-the-line device and thought that the older T was a better unit overall.

Garmin Nuvi 40 product ratings 4. Current statement is here: About this product Product Information Garmin Nuvi Do you recommend that I purchase this used device, and will I have access to updating it even though I am not the initial buyer?

Also to reiterate what t said in the earlier post, you will need a micro SD card in order to perform a full NA map update.

It seems to be about the same size as the Zumo Unless otherwise stated, the updates you receive under the subscription will be updates to the same geographic area included with your Garmin product when originally purchased. I don’t remember the details though, whether the or was affected the most. Testament to how popular it was in its day.

I can’t afford a 7″ Garmin although, I would love to have one.

I will definitely do as each one of you suggested, and report to you the outcome. The LMT model is a best value since the maps will be able to be updated twice annually for the life of the unit. The price may be the seller’s own gagmin elsewhere or another seller’s price.


You can get factory refurbished Nuvis from several reputable retailers. With care any Garmin should last many years. This item doesn’t belong on this page. Therefore, purchasing a used one is the next best thing.

Garmin Nuvi 1490

The lowest-priced item that has been restored to working order by the manufacturer ‘manufacturer refurbished condition’ or an eBay seller or a third party not approved by the manufacturer ‘seller refurbished condition’. Some of the ‘s were sold with the map version called nuvvi 49 states” which didn’t include Canada and Mexico. The rules are now the same bold text is mine: You will be able to update the software even though you’re not the initial buyer, and the maps also if it comes with lifetime maps.

I was told that it has lifetime warranty for gafmin. I was told that the device is a version. I’m not implying the seller is fabricating the history of thebut just offering some possibilities.
