HiI was given a Nuvi 1490T for Christmas and used it once in March. It had a full map update package - I bought it in Halfords in Bletchley.Now I can see I have not registered it and do not see how I can get the map updates.I must have the receipt somewhere but cannot find it.Help!!George Holderness
Just used it to go to ST Neots and found the Garmin did not know the new A422 between the M1 and St Neots
Hello,Welcome to JustAnswer !! I am Andy and I will be glad to help you out with your issue today.First do an update of your software [free]. TO UPDATE SOFTWARE :
