This model comes with pre-loaded maps of all of Europe which occupy approximately 2.81 GB of memory including various language files. The remaining 0.81 GB memory is available to store additional detailed maps, waypoint files or pictures. It also has a speech computer to announce the names of the streets. The Nüvi 1490T is equipped with a BlueTooth interface to communicate with mobile phones which have the required communication capabilities in order to call car rental offices, hotels, restaurants etc. whose phone numbers are stored on the GPS with a single touch on the screen. It can also act as a hands-free extension set to the phones. In addition, the GPS has a slot for an optional microSD memory module to store additional maps or data and an USB connector to exchange data with a computer. The device is powered by a rechargeable battery. The Nüvi 1490T provides navigation information outdoors, in a car, in a train or even in an airplane (see MapSource examples).
