The nuvi 2240 is the perfect travel companion for new users of satellite navigation, providing a helping hand to get to your destination quickly and efficiently in 24 Western European countries. Simply touch the screen to look up addresses and get turn-by-turn directions. Street names are announced before you turn so you always know where you are going, for example, “Turn right at Dell Road”, and the correct lane for upcoming turns is clearly shown, in plenty of time, together with the distance to the exit.
Park position recall feature
The park position recall feature automatically marks your parked position as a point on the map as soon as the sat nav is removed from the mount so you never forget where you leave your car. When you’re ready to go home, the sat nav will help you navigate back to the car on foot
Where am I? safety feature
The Where am I? safety feature can be very helpful if you break down or need a certain service urgently. Just tap the car icon on your map screen for your exact coordinates, contact details for vehicle recovery services and directions to hospitals, police and petrol stations.
You can choose to activate The Garmin Lock anti-theft protection system to disable your Garmin sat nav from performing any functions until a specific 4-digit PIN is typed in or the unit is taken to a predetermined location. Simply enter a 4-digit PIN and select a Security Location. Write down your PIN and keep it in a safe place. Each time you turn on the GPS, enter your PIN to unlock the GPS. If you forget your PIN, you can go to your Security Location. Note: If you forget your PIN, and your Security Location, Garmin cannot unlock your GPS over the phone; you must send your GPS to Garmin to get it unlocked.
Great on the go – driving, walking or on public transport
Download cityXplorer via www.Garmin.co.uk/cityXplorer to navigate like a local. The enhanced pedestrian mode gives you directions for walking including footpaths and shortcuts through parks – places you wouldn’t be accessing while in your car. It also tells you where to catch trains, buses and tubes (dependent on the city), and how long it will take to reach your destination. cityXplorer even has public transport timetables to ensure you arrive at the station on time and help avoid long waits (dependent on the city).
Go Green and save fuel
Simply choose the “less fuel” option on the ecoRoute fuel-saver feature and the nuvi 2240 will calculate the route which will use the least fuel. You can also see the estimated cost of your journey as you plan it and get scored for your driving performance with the Driving Challenge – good for identifying areas for improvement.
Speed cameras and speed limit reporting
Unique Cyclops speed camera alerts provide route-relevant warnings for fixed, temporary and variable speed camera locations along your journey. These directional and speed-related alerts eliminate the risk of false warnings, with the master Cyclops database updated daily to log the latest camera locations. You can also manually correct/update road speeds using speed limit reporting and share and collect other people’s data with regular updates via USB.
Extras for your Garmin
There are lots of extras you can add to your Garmin sat nav. These include travel guides such as AA Days Out, The Good Pub Guide, historical audio tours and more. You can also have some fun by adding celebrity voices. If you’re a music fan you may want to download the locations festivals in the UK, or if you want to go on a shopping trip the locations of shopping centres.
