Nuvi 1490 and 3D display


I normally use the track up display. This morning I had the unit on 3D. The unit for some reason was locked onto nearby streets and not the one I was on. I switched over to track up and the 1490 displayed correctly. Has anyone else experienced this?

Have you tried to reset your unit to see if it makes any


Are you in the Southeast?

I think the government is doing some tests that affect the SE USA (like Florida, Gerogia, Alabama, South Carolina - maybe a little bit of Tennessee and North Carolina).

I had an issue last week where my coordinates were off by about 100ft. It was weird. Then I learned of the tests being conducted.


What is affected if the unit is reset? Any custom POIs lost or stored addresses lost?

I believe I encountered the same type problem when the interstate I was traveling shifted to the right on the GPS and I was traveling on a open field but in a few miles the car icon and map meshed again correctly. Not happened again. I am in East Tennessee.
