GarminGarmin Nuvi 885T GPS : Garmin, the global leader in satellite GPS navigation, announced the Garmin Nuvi 885T, adding lane assist with junction view as well as dynamic content from MSN Direct to a portable and powerful voice-activated navigator. The Garmin Nuvi 885T was announced in conjunction with the 2009 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, and will be on display at the Garmin navigation booth. This powerful new navigator gives clear guidance on a 4.3” color touchscreen display (480x272 pixels), and is preloaded with maps of the U.S., Canada and Puerto Rico. For faster satellite prediction, the Nuvi 885T has Garmin’s HotFix feature which automatically calculates and stores critical satellite information.

“Combining two of Garmin’s most popular GPS navigation features - speech recognition and lane assist with junction view - the Garmin Nuvi 885T lets drivers keep both hands on the wheel and takes the guesswork out of navigation,” said Dan Bartel, Garmin’s vice president of worldwide sales. “And with enhanced MSN Direct services, the Garmin Nuvi 885T GPS navigation device provides much-needed travel information like traffic updates, flight status, Doppler radar, gas prices, news and business headlines and a wireless ‘send to GPS’ capability.”

Garmin GPS Speech recognition
Critically acclaimed for its accuracy and clarity, Garmin’s speech recognition technology has set the industry standard and is considered the ultimate safety and convenience feature. After mounting a push-to-talk wireless remote to their steering wheel, users can effortlessly program the Garmin Nuvi GPS by speaking words that correspond to the buttons on the touchscreen display. Drivers can keep their eyes on the road - almost any common task can be performed without ever touching the unit. Speech recognition is available for American English, British English, European French, European Spanish, German, Italian and Netherlands (Dutch) languages.

Garmin Nuvi 885T features
For a clear picture of the road ahead, the Nuvi 885T features lane assist with junction view that details upcoming maneuvers and specific driving directions, including road sign detail and arrows indicating the proper lane for navigation. At any time, drivers can also speak the phrase, “where am I?” and their device will display its exact latitude and longitude coordinates, closest hospitals, police stations, gas stations and nearest address and intersection. Car Drivers can also associate their favorite images with saved locations using Garmin Connect Photos - where users can choose from millions of geo-located photos provided by Google’s Panoramio photo sharing community.

Bluetooth wireless technology for hands-free calling
The Garmin Nuvi 885-T has Bluetooth wireless technology for hands-free calling when paired with compatible phones. These new premium navigators also boast an integrated FM wireless transmitter, allowing users to transmit turn-by-turn directions and street names, MP3s and audio books through their vehicle’s stereo. The Garmin Nuvi 885T GPS supports USB 2.0 High Speed, enabling the device to download music, photos and more within minutes. Like the rest of the Garmin Nuvi 800 series, the Nuvi 885T has front-firing speakers and a removable lithium-ion battery.
