Garmin® Announces Nüvi® 7x5 Series With Lane Assist, Giving Drivers A Clear Picture Of The Road Ahead
Garmin International Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd., the global leader in satellite navigation, today announced the next evolution of the nüvi 700 series, adding state-of-the-art technology to this popular line of advanced navigators. With lane assist, the nüvi 7x5 series provides drivers with a clear illustration of what lies ahead on their route.
“Garmin’s nüvi 7x5 series uses lane assist to make navigation clearer and easier than ever before,” said Dan Bartel, Garmin’s vice president of worldwide sales. “The lane assist view takes the guesswork out of driving through a busy intersection or an unfamiliar city. Drivers will no longer have to speculate which turn lane to be in, or what lane leads to which exit – that’s nüvi’s job.”
This new and improved series gives clear guidance on a 4.3” touchscreen that details upcoming maneuvers and specific driving directions, including road sign detail and arrows indicating the proper lane for navigation. In some areas, a 3-D transparent view of buildings appears, giving drivers a more realistic depiction of their location. The nüvi 7x5 series also features accelerated map-drawing and routing capabilities, and makes screen zooming even smoother than before. For faster satellite prediction, nüvi 7x5 has Garmin’s HotFix™ feature which automatically calculates and stores critical satellite information.
The nüvi 755T, 765T and 775T will come standard with a traffic receiver that provides lifetime traffic alerts in coverage areas from NAVTEQ Traffic. The cost of the traffic receiver is included with the purchase of these devices – no subscription fee is required. The nüvi 765T adds Bluetooth® wireless technology for hands-free calling and supports a powerful advanced audio amplifier for a stereo Bluetooth connection. For transatlantic travel, nüvi 775T adds mapping of North America and Europe. The nüvi 785T features an MSN Direct receiver with trial subscription that includes updated information about traffic conditions, fuel prices, weather reports, movie listings, headline news, stock quotes and local events. For more information on MSN Direct services and coverage areas, visit http://garmin.msndirect.com. To give motorists the highest degree of awareness, this series of advanced navigators also displays speed limits for major roadways.
The nüvi 755T, 765T and 775T will come standard with a traffic receiver that provides lifetime traffic alerts in coverage areas from NAVTEQ Traffic.
In addition, each nüvi 7x5 also comes standard with the popular “Where Am I?” feature, enabling drivers to look up their exact location including nearest address and intersection, and the closest hospitals, police stations and gas stations at any time. Drivers can also associate their favorite images with saved locations using Garmin’s own unique Web site – Garmin Connect Photos – where users can choose from millions of geo-located photos provided by Google’s Panoramio photo sharing community.
