Good Price

That's a good price for a very good unit and you have 90 days to take it back if you don't like it.

The 90-day return policy does not apply to GPS.

You can return it even after 90 days.

Buggy unit

Unit is still buggy. Just got the 1490T and it will reboot spontaneously as well as when you check traffic details(had 1350 I returned for same issue. (Yes, I put on the latest software updates and maps).

Hope they get that resolved. I killed my 760 changing the battery!

Rock Solid

I've had my 1490T for two full months now and its rock solid. Not a single glitch.

Good info

Thanks for the heads up!

nuvi 1490t

anyone know what the warranty on this is from costco?

Costco warranty

Isn't it the standard factory warranty plus the Costco extra year?

It applies to TVs, computers, and projectors. Not sure about GPSs. If you use an AMEX card, I think that automatically adds a year of warranty regardless where you buy it.

There is no time limit for a return to Costco but the same unit may not be available if you have to return it. There is no extended manufacturer's warranty from Costco just the great return policy. The 90 day return policy does not include GPS's.

Frys.com or Fry's Electronics B&M stores

Frys.com / Fry's Electronics B&M Stores are selling bundled Nuvi 1490T with lifetime map update for $249.99. Comparable to the Costco price one gets lifetime map update for $50. Not too shabby.

That's a very good price at

That's a very good price at Fry's. Costco.com has dropped their lifetime map prices but still a good savings a Fry's, althogh, you do lose Costco's great warranty policy.

Noticed Fry's ad today...(Sunday) they are advertising the 1409T for $249 but it doesn't mention lifetime maps included...Something is up about that...I will usually spend a few bucks more to buy from Costco just for their return policy...

Costco does not state any time limit on GPS units...You must use some common sense though when returning after a certain period of time. Those that shop on a regular basis should be aware of their EXCELLANT return policy...The 90 day limit is only on certain electronic items...cameras, tv's, computers, IPOD'S.

Theorectically, you could

Theorectically, you could return your gps threes years later..and I'm sure some do.

Great Price

That is a good price for a 1690. I have a 1690 and love it. I have never had any problems with it. I believe I paid about $360 for it.
