There's nothing particularly revolutionary about the Garmin 1490T. Aside from the free searching of address and POI databases and the cityXplorer compatibility, its features can be found in any number of alternatives. However, at £215 it's already good value. Factor in the larger screen, and the 1490T looks like a bargain. If you do happen to find regular 4.3in sat-nav widescreens too cramped for comfort, the Garmin 1490T could really expand your horizons.
