Delivered via traditional RDS-TMC, the service combines trafficTrends historic route data together with information on the current traffic situation to identify congestion and incidents on your planned journey. If there are queues, you’ll be offered an alternative route to avoid delays. 

1Lifetime traffic extends for the useful life of your Garmin traffic receiver (as long as you own a compatible Garmin GPS) or as long as Garmin receives traffic data from its traffic supplier, whichever is shorter.

nüvi 3490LMT comes with Garmin's innovative voice-activated navigation so you can choose how you want to control it. Simply wake up the nüvi 3490LMT by using your customised voice command and speak the menu options on the screen for totally touch-free navigation. 

With built-in Bluetooth wireless technology, you can sync with your compatible mobile phone for hands-free phone calling and even access your phone book and call history via the nüvi 3490LMT – no need to look at, touch or even find your phone.

Avoid confusion at tricky exits and junctions with the nüvi 3490LMT’s Lane Assist with PhotoReal and Bird's Eye Junction Views* which indicates the correct lane you need to be in at upcoming major intersections and exits with incredible detail of your surroundings right down to the trees, bridges and pylons. Shortly before the junction, the GPS enters split screen mode to show your position on the map alongside a realistic depiction of your upcoming manoeuvre, with accurately reproduced road signs for confident navigation and reassurance you’re on track.

1If you purchase a nüMaps Lifetime subscription (sold separately or bundled together with certain GPS models), you will receive up to 4 map data updates per year, when and as such updates are made available on Garmin’s website, for 1 compatible Garmin product until your product’s useful life expires or Garmin no longer receives map data from its third party supplier, whichever is shorter. A product’s “useful life” means the period during which the product (a) has sufficient memory capacity and other required technical capabilities to utilize current map data and (b) is capable of operating as intended without major repairs. A product will be deemed to be out of service and its useful life to be ended if no updates have been downloaded for such product for a period of 24 months or more. Unless otherwise stated, the updates you receive under the subscription will be updates to the same geographic map data originally included with your Garmin product when originally purchased. In some instances, your Garmin product might not have sufficient memory remaining for you to load an update to the map data, in which case you will need to either (a) select reduced map data coverage for your updates, or (b) purchase separately a microSD™/SD™ card (if and as applicable to your Garmin product) and load all or a portion of the map data coverage for your updates to the card and insert the card into the microSD/SD card slot contained in your Garmin product. If neither of the measures in (a) or (b) can be used to address your product’s lack of sufficient remaining memory, then Garmin may conclude that the “useful life” of your product has expired. Garmin may terminate your nüMaps Lifetime subscription at any time if you violate any of the terms of this agreement or your subscription. Your nüMaps Lifetime subscription may not be transferred to another Garmin product.
