Navigation Features

Map Source
Maps are typically built into the navigation unit or they can be uploaded from a disc or memory card. They usually cover the United States and all or parts of Canada. Built-in flash memory maps typically respond faster than disc loaded maps.
Built-In Flash Memory
Map Database
This is the map database that the system uses. The map database provider supplies the digital map, as well as the Points-of-Interests, map updates, fastest routes, and many other features.
These are the maps that come with the navigation unit.
Complete 50 USA
Map Dimensional Display
This is the manner in which the navigation maps are displayed. The majority of navigation units have either a 2D or a 3D map display, however some have options for both.
Points of Interest
The number of points of interest included on the maps. Points of interest may include gas stations, restaurants, city centers, hotels, airports, and tourist attractions.
6 Million
Customizable POI
Customizable Points Of Interest (POI) allow the user to customize, select favorites, and add their own points of interest. This enabled the driver to get directions quickly to previously visited destination.
Speed Display
Speed display is a feature that allows the unit to display the speed of the vehicle. Using GPS technology, this feature also assisting in determining the estimated time of arrival on compatible units.
Text-to-Speech (TTS) converts normal text into speech. Mostly used in navigation units, text-to-speech allow the audible playback of street names, driving directions, and any other text that the driver needs to hear.
Screen Size
The screen size dimension is measured diagonally in inches.
If a unit is touchscreen capable, you can control a majority of it's functions by touching the screen.
Battery Life
The average capacity of the battery when fully charged. This value is provided by the manufacturer and is an average, not a guarantee.
2 hours
Removable Memory Type
If the unit includes a removable memory card slot, then it allows you to load maps, digital photos, MP3s, and possibly other digital media files using a removable digital media cards such as an SD Card. Often times, you can expand on the typically small memory card included with the unit and purchase a higher capacity memory card that stores more data. Removable digital media cards include SmartDigital™ (SD), MultiMedia Card (MMC), TransFlash™, and Memory Stick®.
SD Card
MP3 Playback
If "Yes", MP3 files can be played back on the car stereo either on a memory card or loaded directly from your computer using a USB cable. We recommend reading the item description to see how MP3 files are loaded to the unit.
WMA Playback
If "Yes", WMA files can be played back on the navigation unit either on a memory card or loaded directly from your computer using a USB cable. We recommend reading the item description to see how WMA files are loaded to the unit.
Navigation During Audio Playback
This feature allows the driver to listen to music while the unit is still navigating them to their destination.
Audio Output
An audio output on small devices such as this is typically a 3.5mm mini-jack ("headphone" style) that allows you to connect the unit to headphones so you can listen to music and use the unit as a portable media player. You can also connect the audio output to a car stereo that has an "Aux Input".
Rear 3.5mm
A/V Input
A/V (Audio/Video) inputs allow the unit to playback external audio and/or video sources typically using common, composite RCA connections. For example, you could connect an external DVD player, XBox360 or other audio or video device if the unit has an audio and video input. 1 A/V Input refers to 1 set of audio and video inputs. Other inputs may be included on the unit and we recommend you read the product description to find what type the unit has.
Satellite Radio
This feature signifies whether or not the receiver is compatible with XM or Sirius Satellite Radio. "Optional" means while the receiver is capable of SIRIUS/XM playback and connectivity, you will still need to purchase an additional satellite tuner, adapter, and/or antenna.
Traffic Tuner
In-dash navigation units with satellite radio have the option for a traffic tuner, also called a Traffic Message Channel. A Traffic Message Channel (TMC) is used to deliver traffic and travel information directly to the driver. When the TMC is built-in a navigation unit, it can help direct the driver to take alternative routes when traffic is bad.
Bluetooth Connectivity
Bluetooth® technology allows two or more electronic devices to communicate with each other wirelessly, such as using your cell phones "hands-free" or transmitting music to Bluetooth enabled receiver. If a unit is Bluetooth capable, it typically can allow you to connect to your Bluetooth cell phone to make and receive calls. Others can access your phone and address book too via Bluetooth. Other Bluetooth capable units offer even more services, such as live traffic information and map upgrades.

More uses of Bluetooth technology include transmitting music to a compatible receiver, printing wirelessly from a computer, and many other wireless uses. Please see the item description for more specific information regarding what features the unit includes.

Decent, needs software update

February 7, 2009

My buddy has this and it works well enough to the point to get us most places, but where there's new streets in my neighborhood in new developments its all blank. Outside of that I haven't seen anything wrong with its street labels and its really easy to use.
