There's a lot to like about this in spite of a few flaws.

How we score

The Engadget Score is a unique ranking of products based on extensive independent research and analysis by our expert editorial and research teams. The Global Score is arrived at only after curating hundreds, sometimes thousands of weighted data points (such as critic and user reviews).

GPSmagazine says:

I highly recommend the newer 1490T over the older nuvi 5000, as the 1490T includes free lifetime traffic service, has a rechargeable internal battery, lane assist, 3D junction view, Bluetooth, displays speed limit information on the map, ecoRoute, and has an improved interface that's faster and easier to use than the nuvi 5000.
