My Garmin Pilot has saved the day more than once. ”

 

My Garmin Pilot has the female voice, so is named Jill.  While vacationing we used her to get us from Phoenix, AZ to the Grand Canyon then Las Vegas. With a lot of night driving, she made the trip comfortable and not so scary in the mountains.

Garmin StreetPilot Western Europe + Car Kit

 

Garmin enters the smartphone app market with StreetPilot for the iPhone.

Comprehensive destination options ; Full points of interest database plus Google Local Search ; Keyword search for address and POI

More expensive than the competition ; Extras add more to cost ; Mount for iPhone 4 chassis only

support is noticeable by its absence, though. You can also add a found location to your favourites with a single click, and search for POIs near this location.

Product Specifications

The StreetPilot GPS combines satellite-tracking technology with detailed electronic maps to bring Garmin navigation to your automobile. The safety and convenience of knowing where you are anywhere in the world, in any weather, 24 hours a day is as close as your dash. Garmin's first product designed primarily for the automobile contains a reference basemap showing Interstate, U.S., and State highways, plus rivers and lakes in the U.S., Canada, and Mexico, with main arterial streets shown in metropolitan areas. Optional MapSource MetroGuide U.S.A. CD-ROMs can be uploaded for street-level map detail and access to business listings and points of interest in your area. All you need to do is enter a street address or choose points of interest (such as restaurants, hotels, gas stations, banks, and shopping areas) and the StreetPilot will display it on a map along with your current location. The StreetPilot features a high-performance twelve parallel channel GPS receiver for quick satellite acquisition and reliable signal reception, whether you're under dense tree cover or surrounded by high-rise skyscrapers. A large high-resolution four-level gray scale display offers razor-sharp images, even in direct sunlight - and with Garmin's new, three-level amber backlighting, navigating in low-light situations is easier than ever. Text and graphics are shown in large type for easy viewing with three-level backlighting for nighttime use. Six AA batteries supply sixteen hours of operation, or you can use an optional cigarette lighter adapter to power the unit. Either way, you can quickly transfer your StreetPilot to another vehicle for continuous pinpoint navigation.
