For decades we have appreciated Garmin portable GPS navigation devices for their intuitive interface design, reliable operation and state-of-the-art technology. In addition to providing visual and spoken, turn-by-turn directions to your destinations, they provide a variety of other navigation information including estimated time of arrival, lane guidance (especially useful when driving on wide, multi-lane, crowded freeways); speed limits; millions of points of interest, including restaurants, gas stations, shopping centers, banks and ATMs, parking, airports, attractions, hospitals, transportation, hotels and auto repair facilities; availability of lifetime map updates and timesaving traffic information; and more.
Directions are spoken much the way someone would tell them to you, and include recognizable landmarks, buildings and traffic lights. Points of interest often include additional information – such as the names of individual attractions and restaurants at major theme parks. If you misspell the name of a fast food restaurant or some other establishment, Garmin DriveAssist will help by responding with similar search results to what you entered.
