Yes, I am now not only stuck with standalone gps nuv 1490T from Garmin, but it also does not have working alerts for Fixed Speed Cameras in Auckland and then around New Zealand. According to rep Darren in Australasia, working alerts are not provided for fixed speed cameras in New Zealand and they are provided only for Australia. I am really dissappointed

Although I get a message that the maps are uptodate, the speed limits in Hamilton, Pahia, Whangerei and many parts of New Zealand are out of date.

Navman new features are FM Transmitter and use as a reversin camera and playing movies.

I am sure Garmin Navman can provide that through it firmware and software upgrade of nuv 1490T
