Garmin has announced the nuvi 1490TV GPS device for the UK that has an interesting feature. The device offers the standard navigation capability you expect from Garmin, but it also wraps in one you might not expect -- mobile TV.

The new device can pick up freeview digital TV broadcasts and radio content in over 14 countries in Europe. The GPS device uses a DVB-T tuner and has a 5-inch touchscreen. The device has a safety that prevents the TV function from working while driving.

I can see watching and driving being an issue for the driver, but the passenger should be able to watch TV while on the go. The device has stereo speakers and a 3.5mm headphone output. An input for a reverse camera is included. The device will ship in April for GBP299.
