    Default Make nuvi 1490 into dezl 560?

    Is there anyway to make a 1490 run the dezl 560 firmware? I am looking for truck mode, specifically the ability to set height and weight restrictions.
    Thanks in advance.

    Simple Answer NO

    Jap Firmware has Truck Mode but It's "Truck Mode Light", You cannot enter Truck Parameters, It just routes you away from Residential Areas.

    Thanks for your quick response. That was kind of the conclusion I had come to after searching around on here, however I figured it wouldn't hurt to ask in case I missed something.

    I've been searching around but cannot find anywhere that actually lists the type of PCB it has. They seem to have the same screen resolution, but that's as far as any of the spec sheets I can find go into detail about much of anything.
