Sat Nav offers Freeview

Bookmark and Share

by David Allen

Sat Nav has dramatically changed over the years, from a service that offered out of date information leading drivers along roads that no longer existed, to a service that could easily become the communications hub of the car.

One of the latest devices to be launched is the Garmin Nuvi 1490TV.

This offers maps of Europe, including traffic updates and speed camera locations.

But this is device is also a digital TV which can pick up the digital signal anywhere in fourteen European countries including the UK’s Freeview digital television service.

However Garmin has built some safety features into the device, as digital TV can only be viewed while the vehicle is stationary, which is understandable but not any good for passengers.

The Garmin Nuvi 1490TV comes with a five inch touch screen display and will cost around £300.
