GARMIN nuvi 1490T 5.0
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs No issues with this Refurb 07/22/2011

This review is from: GARMIN nuvi 1490T 5.0" GPS W/Lifetime Traffic & Bluetooth

Pros: Large bright display
Bluetooth for phone, works well
Its a Garmin

Cons: None that come to mind

Other Thoughts: Ordered this GPS from Newegg and had it one day later.
I've had none of the issues that other people have with their refurbished units. My unit had no visible marks on it. All the parts were in the box. The serial number wasn't registered to anyone else so it was easy to update the firmware, and the maps to the latest version.
We have 4 Garmin Nuvi's in the house, and this one is replacing my 2610 Streetpilot which is still working well.

Crucial 512MB 184-Pin DDR SDRAM DDR 266 (PC 2100) Desktop Memory Model CT6464Z265
  • Owned For:

Pros: None

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: This is the good stuff. I've bought a total of 3 pieces, two 512 and one 256, all 2100, the 256 and the 512 worked reliabably at 177Mhz, at standard voltages and timings on an Albatron 845PEVpro also bought here at newegg.

Intel Celeron 2.0 Northwood 2.0 GHz Socket 478 BX80532RC2000B Processor
  • Owned For:

Pros: None

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I've been an AMD fan for a number of years now, but they haven't always had the stability I wished for. I upgraded from an 800M duron to this processor on an Albatron 845PEV MB. Its running at 2.6G with no issues for a week now, 24/7 at stock voltage. These chips run real cool too, currently 98F, 10 higher than the case temperature. The factory cooler is a massive unit with a large slow fan, very quiet.
I do have one gripe with the packaging, the chip is in a plastic box with no foam or other means of securing it, next to the cooler. When I pried the two halves apart, they let go all at once causing the processor to bounce out and land on the cooler. I had to carefully find all the bent pins (very tiny) and bend them back in line. I wasn't happy, a small square of antistatic foam would have held it in place.
