According to the OSM wiki it is generally possible to use OSM based maps on the Garmin NĂ¼vi 1490T.

So with this entry point OSM_Map_On_Garmin you should be able to download a map for your area, copy it to your garmin device and enjoy.

When there are problems or errors in detail, you can also aks at the OSM forum at the Garmin subforum.

if there is enough spare space on the internal memory of the nuvi it should be possible. when you have unzipped the gmapsupp.img you will know if its bigger than the available space on the nuvi. if the existing map on the nuvi is called gmapsupp rename it or you may over write it and lose it. follow advice in these links,I'm assuming that when you plug in the usb you can see the files in the nuvi.let us know the results
