Garmin nuvi 855 GPS
Stay ahead of the curve with the Garmin nüvi 855 GPS Navigator. Now you can keep both hands on the wheel, tell the nüvi where to go, and maneuver complicated interchanges with ease. With nüvi 's innovative speech recognition, you safely control nüvi 's interface with your voice, allowing you to keep both hands on the wheel. Lane assist with junction view guides you to the correct lane for an approaching turn or exit, making unfamiliar intersections and exits easy to navigate. Its sunlight-readable, 4.3"" widescreen display is easy to read from any direction.
Speak a menu option or touch the color screen to easily look up addresses and services and get voice-prompted, turn-by-turn directions that speak street names to your destination. Preloaded with detailed City Navigator NT street maps and nearly 6 million points of interest, you can also upload custom points of interest and calculate your position faster with the HotFix satellite system.
Speak or tap "Where Am I?" to find the closest hospitals, police stations, fuel stations, nearest addresses, and intersection. It also 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. With route planning you can save 10 routes, specify via points, and preview simulated turns. In addition, the nüvi 855 automatically sorts multiple destinations to provide an efficient route for errands, deliveries, or sales calls.
Navigation is just the beginning with many "must-have" entertainment and travel tools including an MP3 player, audio book player, JPEG picture viewer, currency converters, Garmin games, alarm clock, and more. It's also compatible with lifetime traffic alerts or MSN Direct (receiver purchase required for either option).
