Garmin Streetpilot C340 ... text-to-speech feature tells users the name of the street, when to turn, and in what direction. If you miss your turn, the c340 automatically calculates a new route to the destination.
Notification of traffic delays is a c340 option that lets drivers see congested areas via a color-coded map. This feature lets users avoid traffic by simply pushing a button that will calculate a new route. This traffic awareness is made possible via the new Garmin GTM 10 FM TMC receiver that connects to selected Garmin street navigation products. The GTM 10 receives digital data from specific FM broadcast stations in select major metro areas throughout the United States and Europe.
Garmin has also added the ability for customers to augment the preloaded maps with custom POI's from industry-standard CSV files, such as school zones and safety cameras. In addition, a proximity alert feature is included to optionally notify the driver of upcoming custom POI's. The StreetPilot c340 comes preloaded with highly detailed City Select NT street data of the entire United States, Canada, and Puerto Rico. The database features nearly six million points of interest - including hotels, restaurants, gas stations, ATMs, and attractions.
The StreetPilot c340 joins Garmin's growing line of automotive GPS navigators. It has a bright, 3.5-inch diagonal, TFT display with touchscreen; dual integrated speakers for high-quality voice prompts; and an internal lithium-ion battery for out-of-car route planning.
The StreetPilot c-series boasts distinctive and sleek styling - the units' only buttons are a rotary volume knob and an on/off switch. The device is secured by a suction-mount cradle that fastens to the windshield, for easy portability between vehicles.

Garmin Streetpilot 2620The perfect Christmas gift for sherpas everywhere (711 words)

a fast road where I feel like a snail where even the dithering old dears and the articulated lories are overtaking me on a very steep hill. Still the Garmin allows me to select the shortest route and so on that fateful day when I first used it to venture from wet and windy Wales to Barnsley my usual choice of directions from Multimap was abandoned mostly because Multimap was adamant the quickest way was via a series of motorways through every major city taking an enormous detour whilst Garmin offered a more direct A road route. I stuck in the first few letters of the postcode of my destination followed by the street name and hit shortest route. All was going swimmingly ...

are paying for the SatNav. Negatives I don t really have any negatives to say about the G Garmin Streetpilot C510 Deluxe. It has served me well every single time I have used it - this being at least once a week over the last year. If I am to be really critical, I would say that the only minor fault is its bulkyness - it is not slimlined as many of the other branded SatNav s are. All in all, I love my Garmin, and I would highly recommend it to anyone. I d say that this device covers pretty much all functions that you are likely to get in a mid-priced SatNav. Hope this review was helpful in making your ...

The maps are very accurate and the interest points very comprehensive The traffic unit lets the ...
