Satellite Navigation Buyers Guide  

Manufacturer's Description

Garmin’s nüvi 300 is a portable GPS navigator, traveler’s reference and digital entertainment system, all in one. It is your pocket-sized personal travel assistant ready for adventure.

Introducing the Nüvi: A versatile travel assistant that’s approximately the size of a deck of playing cards.

The Nüvi is a portable GPS navigator, traveler’s reference, and digital entertainment system, all in one. Combined with detailed maps, the Nüvi provides automatic routing, turn-by-turn voice directions, and finger-touchscreen control—making it easy to find your way anywhere.

Travel Kit™
The Nüvi also offers a travel kit of useful travel tools to help keep any journey fun: MP3 player, audio book player from Audible.com, JPEG picture viewer, world travel clock with time zones, currency converter, measurement converter, and calculator. In addition, optional software packages such as the Language Guide and Travel Guide (sold separately on SD Data cards) can be added for language and content support.

Language Guide™ software (optional)
Users can access an optional Garmin Language Guide, with data provided by Oxford University Press. This software suite contains a multilingual word bank, phrase bank, and five bilingual dictionaries. The multilingual word bank and phrase bank supports nine languages and dialects, including American English, British English, French, German, Italian, Brazilian Portuguese, European Portuguese, European Spanish, and Latin American Spanish. The Language Guide lets travelers look up and translate more than 17,000 words or 20,000 phrases per language. Through the unit’s text-to-speech interface (offered only on the nüvi 350), users can get a spoken pronunciation of each entry in the word bank—along with gender and part-of-speech information

Travel Guide™ software (optional)
The new Garmin Travel Guide is loaded with information provided by Marco Polo. These guides put in-depth travel information—such as reviews and recommendations for restaurants, tourist attractions, and more—at the user’s fingertips.

Travelers can use the Nüvi to navigate to an address or search points of interest (POIs)—places like hotels, restaurants, shopping, and tourist attractions. The Nüvi automatically calculates the fastest route and provides voice-prompted turn-by-turn directions along the way. Thanks to the Nüvi’s text-to-speech functionality, the unit audibly announces the name of upcoming streets—letting drivers keep their eyes on the road while navigating through busy traffic and tricky roadways. If users stray off course, the Nüvi automatically calculates the quickest way to get back on track.

Traffic
The Nüvi even provides traffic alerts (in select cities) when used with a compatible traffic receiver. By adding traffic services and a receiver to your nüvi, you can avoid traffic tie-ups by simply pushing a button to calculate a new route.

The Nüvi also supports custom points of interest (POIs) and configurable vehicle icons — fun, customized car-shaped icons in a variety of colors that show your position on the map.
