Garmin nuvi 860 ... transmitter and more. Like the rest of the wide nüvi 800-series, just speak a menu option and nüvi obeys your command.
nüvi 860 not only tells you where to turn but listens to your voice commands. With nüvi's innovative speech recognition, you safely control nüvi's interface with your voice - while keeping both hands on the wheel. Simply press the button on the remote (which attaches to the steering wheel) to activate speech recognition and begin speaking menu options. nüvi even recognizes shortcut phrases for popular functions. Conveniently tell nüvi "Find Address" and speak an address to start navigating.
With nüvi 860's widescreen display, you'll always get the big picture. View map detail, driving directions, photos and more in bright, brilliant color. Its sunlight-readable, 4.3-inch display is easy to read - from any direction.
nüvi 860 comes ready to go right out of the box with preloaded City Navigator NT street maps and millions of points of interest (POIs) such as hotels, restaurants, fuel stations, ATMs and more. Speak a menu option or touch the color screen to enter a destination, and nüvi takes you there with 2-D or 3-D maps and turn-by-turn voice directions. It even announces the name of exits and streets so you never have to take your eyes off the road. In addition, nüvi 860 accepts custom points of interest, such as school zones and safety cameras and lets you set proximity alerts to warn you of upcoming POIs.
Keep track of yourself and your car with nüvi 860. Just speak or tap "Where Am I? " to find the closest hospitals, police stations, fuel stations, nearest address and intersection. Also see your exact latitude and longitude coordinates. nüvi 860 even remembers where you parked. It automatically marks your position when you remove it from the windshield mount, so you can navigate with nüvi on foot and find your way back to your vehicle. Perfect for unfamiliar spots and crowded lots such as amusement parks, stadiums and malls.
nüvi 860 includes advanced navigational features to take the worry out of traveling. With route planning you can save 10 routes, specify via points and preview simulated turns on the 860's wide screen. In addition, nüvi 860 automatically sorts multiple destinations to provide an efficient route for errands, deliveries or sales calls. It also displays speed limits for highways and Interstates. A trip log provides an electronic bread crumb trail of up to 10,000 points, so you can see where you've been on the map.
Talk about worry-free driving. nüvi 860 integrates Bluetooth wireless technology with a built-in microphone and speaker for hands-free calling. Just pair it with your compatible Bluetooth phone and talk hands-free through the 860 while staying focused on the road. Simply speak or dial numbers with nüvi's touchscreen keypad to make a call.
Steer clear of traffic with nüvi 860's integrated FM TMC traffic receiver. Receive alerts about traffic delays and road construction that lie ahead on your route and detour around the problem area.
nüvi 860's high-sensitivity internal (non flip-up) antenna gives it a sleeker, thinner design than the nüvi 600-series, making it easy to slip in your pocket or purse. Its rechargeable lithium-ion battery makes it convenient for navigation by car or on foot.

Garmin nuvi 200WGreat little gadget (764 words)

Astheticly pleasing (Got to look good) After reading review after review both on here and on Amazon the same sat nav kept popping up and attracted my interest. The G Garmin nuvi 200W even at first glance seemed to tick all the boxes and came in widescreen for an added bonus. It was hard pushed to find a bad review about this item anywhere.

I still love that child like excitement of opening something you just ...

(but infrequent) and you can also download different vehicles if you so desire. I quite like the American cop car.... The manual is pretty spartan but as the nuvi is easy to use, this has not been a problem for me. It does not come with a mains charger or USB cable but these are available cheaply on auction sites. Your digital camera USB cable could quite easily be the right size (USB A to mini B) and it will charge quite quickly from the PC. I now also always take it when I go walking in the country, obviously it doesn t show footpaths etc but it has been invaluable on a couple of "where am I" occasions when I m on or near a road, and it shows the ...
