The 1490T has Voice Dial through bluetooth. Does this only work if the cell phone also has voice dial? I have a my phone paired with the 1490T and when I select voice dial on the Garmin I get a blank screen on the Garmin that says Cancel on bottom. No matter what I speak at the Garmin nothing happens - my cell phone does not have voice dial on its own.
The link below doesn't mention anything about voice dialing.
Simply dial numbers with nüvi's touchscreen keypad to make a call. To answer calls, just tap the screen and speak into its built-in microphone. Enjoy convenient one-touch dialing for contacts and points of interest.
Yes, your cell would need to have voice dial for it to work.
On my phone with voice dial you also have to go into the phone settings to make the change.
I use Voice dial on my 1490T. Your phone must support voice dialing. Works just like a bluetooth headset.
The Nuvi can't do anything your phone can't. The GPS is just accessing functions and information stored in your phone via Bluetooth.
Maybe it's time for a new phone? They make them now so you don't have to carry a separate battery pack around.
Duh... I just checked my Nuvi 760. It has the voice dial option too. I never knew it's there.
Playing around today on the settings for mine.I noticed I had extra icon for voice dial on the gps.
