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).

Engadget Summary

There's no question the Garmin nuvi 3490LMT is a great GPS unit, and its powered mount, high-resolution display, and interface enhancements are nice features. However, at a time when just about every smartphone can double as a GPS unit, the 3490LMT is a bit too pricey for what it offers, especially when you can get Garmin's nuvi 2595LMT for over $100 less. Like the 3490LMT, the 2595LMT includes lifetime traffic and map updates, and most of the other key functions of the more expensive model (though you lose the powered mount).
