If your car no longer sends power when the ignition is off the nuvi 1490T will give you the message "External power has been lost." and will count down from 30 seconds. You have the option to press "power of" or "stay on" below that, if you just let the timer run down, it will automatically turn off.

Question

Bluetooth

From reading reviews about blue tooth capability, it looks like it is only a speakerphone system, and not one I could route through a blue tooth earpiece. My interest is to receive the voice directions plus phone calls through an earpiece, and I'm wondering if that is how this model can work.

Also, I'm concerned that the Garmin website doesn't show any compatibility for my phone, an LG VM510, currently still available at Sprint.

Currently the only Garmin models in production that have two way bluetooth where you can pair to both a headset and a phone are the Zumo 550,660, and zumo 665. While the LG VM 510 isn't on the compatibility list for Garmin devices it doesn't necessarily mean that it won't work it just means that Garmin hasn't tested that connection and can't guarantee compatibility.

Currently the only Garmin Devices that support pairing with a Bluetooth headset are the nuvi 765, 775 , 785, StreetPilot 2820, zumo 220*, 550, 660 and 665. When a headset is paired with these devices the listener will be able to hear phone calls, navigation prompts, or MP3 music (if the device has a MP3/Media Player).

All other Garmin Bluetooth-enabled devices (including the nuvi 1490T) are only capable of pairing with a Bluetooth cell phone.
