    ΕΧΙΤ Kaspersky (not disable), as it slows down the procedure of USB recognition and the execution of the updater.
    Timing and finger positioning is everything.
    (I use Kaspesky too).

    Also turn off UAC (user account control), because .System is a protected system folder.

    @dasilvarsa, @voyager56, @lolypop000 & @x-trail:
    Thank you very much for all the help & support. It was worth it! I made it!!!!! I followed all and each advise and you were all right. My problem everyone knows already what it was, so now here is the solution for others facing it to manage without plucking all your hair lol. Ok, step 1 - following x-trail's advice I sent kaspersky for a pack of *****ers at the corner store; step 2 - I kept my laptop's win7 beside me but this time I sat facing my old pc running XP (as per dasilvarsa's suggestion); step 3 - voyager56 was right, although my pc recognized the nuvi it never meant the drivers were installed (or updated, maybe?) - I'm not an expert in software to be honest, but as soon as I installed freshly downloaded drivers from garmin's website the updater recognized my nuvi right away; step 4 - followed lolypop000 procedure, like so many times I did before but this time the updater "flew" the application and in a few instants I had the software loaded in my "brand new" 3490. I already installed the logo as well and next steps will be working around the things that are missing (voice command and whatever I find as I still don't know the 34xx UI). Be back with updates.. I mean doubts, most likely lol!

    Ok, so now I'm starting to get used to the 3490's UI. Features I don't have working are: voice command, 3d buildings view (had it ok on 3790 fw), mp3 & video players. I've read a lot, tried a lot of the problem solvers for others, but nothing! I read somewhere that one "enabled" the voice command feature... How to do it? Or what should I do?

    To get the desired features available you must copy some of these *.xml files in /Garmin (example /Garmin/DeviceConfig_MP3_Enabled.xml) and restart your Nuvi .
    Then check what do you have in .System\Diag\html supported features.

    @ webalf

    Copy all the attchment files, as Voyager56 says and read [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] for ASR VoiceCommand to work ok.

    From what I've seen on original 3490LMT, if you just copy only some of the attachment files, some of the already enabled features maybe disabled. So copy ALL of the files at the same time and then restart Nuvi.

    Not all features are compatible with each other. For example if you enable Video player you will probably lose Blue tooth.
    What features are enabled you can check by reading .System\Diag\html .

    What have happened with two original european 3490LMTs, was that they only copied DeviceConfig_MP3_Enabled.xml and DeviceConfig_VideoPlayback_Enabled.xml to enable just the MP3 and Video features.
    Doing so, Video and MP3 were enabled but Bluetooth was disabled.
    After, when they copied DeviceConfig_Bluetooth_Enabled.xml, Video was disabled.
    Only when they copied the .xml files all together, both Mp3, Video and Bluetooth were enabled simultaneously.

    My device is a european 3760T and after I copied the .xml all together, everything was enabled, including ecoRoute (I 've bought the ecoRoute™HD device).
    Here is my .System\Diag\html\supported_features.html

    The "Custom Main Menu" feature is the one that causes problems with Bluetooth (not the Video Playback or MP3 features). None of the 34xx devices support the Custom Main Menu in their firmware and so there is no sense in enabeling it at all. I did quite a bit of testing with all of the various features in my 3760 to 3490 conversion, and the Custom Main Menu is the only feature that caused me any grief at all.

    @ all my dear helpers, I'm very glad that my "3490" is performing well now! I'm absolutely newby to navigation sw and could have never done it without your support. Luckely I'm a good at following instructions and a fast learner. My GPS is now at full capacities in Canada, but I believe your guidance can help anyone else where in the world. In the end will be a matter of a few final options. As I did before I will write down the steps I checked in case I can help someone in my shoes:
    - step 1 - in your pc (e.g. running win7 64) open windows explorer, go to organize -> folder options -> view mode and check "show hidden files, folders or harddrives" AND uncheck "hide files protected by operation system (recommended)", it's the third box right above the show hidden folders, etc, option. This will allow you to see the nuvi's hidden files, such as .system\ which you'll be accessing after;
    - step 2 - download the "enable feature" files voyager56 addresses to in post #205, unzip them and copy all into garmin folder in your nuvi (these are .XML files). I own an LMT so I did just like x-trail advises in post #206 and post #208 and it works like a charm. However in your case you might need to consider voyager56's facts in post #205 and post #207;
    - step 3 - disconnect your nuvi from pc and restart it. When on, from the main screen go to apps and see all the features you have enabled to use;
    - step 4 - If you don't have voice command enabled in your nuvi (and you had it before convert), go to .system\asr folder and erase any file inside it. In my case, I didn't have any asr folder so I created one and left it empty (obviously lol).
    - step 5 - Restart nuvi, plug it to pc and use webupdater to get all the files you are needing. use the "proceed to check for additional updates such as voice updates" option and check next. There scroll through all the options available and select only those you need. The more you get, the more room you'll take from your nuvi's storage area. unpplug nuvi from pc and restart it.
    These were all the steps this dummy had to follow to have it working. Hope it helps!

    Using WebUpadater don't forget to check "nuvi Map Themes Files".
    A Garmin-Navigon map theme is now available!!!
