Garmin Nuvi 3450LM GPS receiver


Editors' note: Garmin's Nuvi 3490 LMT features an interface that is similar to that of the recently reviewed Garmin Nuvi 2495 LMT and hardware that is similar to the Nuvi 3790T. Where applicable, portions of each of those reviews have been used in this...

The Garmin Nuvi 3490 LMT features an improved interface, snappy performance, and a svelte form factor. Garmin's truly hands-free voice command system is one of the best in the portable navigation business. Lifetime map updates and 3D Traffic Digital...

Bluetooth connection doesn't sync with the phone's address book. At $400, this is a very pricey PND.

The Garmin Nuvi 3490 LMT packs every trick in Garmin's book into an ultra-thin chassis, but the high MSRP will deter some.

DO NOT BUY THIS GARMIN GPS! We bought this very expensive Garmin GPS at Best Buy 4 months ago. Within two (2) months the LED screen underneath the glass screen cracked and the unit was no longer usable. We did not drop it or do anything abnormal just...

Nice lightweight unit

LED cracks after two months of use, we send it back to be replaced and again, 2 months later the LED cracks again. They want us to pay $140 to fix it. Obvious design flaw and they are refusing to accept responsibility. I cannot be the only one.

Good machine, poorly presented


The GPS unit itself seems to function fine. My complaint is with the product support. I am sure that a complete user manual could have been included at a minimal cost, along with the short set-up brochure and it would have saved me a great deal of...

It is very thin GPS device to date


I was surprised to see how thin it was. It does look like smartphone in some ways.
